Latest Journal Update

Home Sweet Home...and the plan

Hello God Warriors, we made it home safely Saturday at about 5PM.  We are still Praising God for the miracle that Avery received.  When we saw the MRI images it was unreal.  The spot is totally gone AND the scar tissue that is over the original tumor from 2010 is retracting!  Dr. Robinson said that he now knows when a child comes to St. Jude with a PMA (non-BRAF mutation/duplication) tumor he will be giving them this regimen.  What a joyous appointment with smiles instead of tears.

Dr. Robinson wants us to finish the chemo regimen.  My heart says NO, but my logical thinking says it is best.  I wish Avery did not need to finish it, it is so hard on her.  We have also decided that Avery needs an appetite stimulant to get her through the rest of this.  We started it on Sunday morning, I pray it works at least to stabilize her weight.  Avery's counts are too low to start Round #7 this week which is a blessing because we have decided to go away for the long the weekend to Lutsen MN to celebrate this miracle!  We will be staying right on Lake Superior in a cabin!  We went last year right after we found out her cancer was back....now we are going to CELEBRATE that it is gone!  What a blessing.  We plan to start Round #7 next week.  Avery should be done with chemo some time in late August, what a celebration that will be!

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your prayers for Avery and our family.  Madelyn cried when she heard the news that the tumor is gone.  It truly affects the entire family.  Thanks for the support and love.  Keep the prayers coming as I know you will.

Blessings to each of you, Jenn

Go Team BrAvery!  Miracles DO happen.

God has worked through these fantastic doctors, researchers, nurses, and the rest of Avery's team to create a miracle. Praying for a better appetite and for protection to finish the chemo.

He said, "I've been where you've been before.
Down every hallway's a slamming door."
No way out, no one to come and save me
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me

Then somebody said what I'm saying to you
Opened my eyes and told me the truth."
They said, "Just a little faith, it'll all get better."
So I followed that preacher man down to the river

And now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger

There must've been something in the water
Oh, there must've been something in the water

Well, I heard what he said and I went on my way
Didn't think about it for a couple of days
Then it hit me like a lightning late one night
I was all out of hope and all out of fight

Couldn't fight back the tears so I fell on my knees
Saying, "God, if you're there come and rescue me."
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood

And now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger

There must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water

And now I'm singing along to amazing grace
Can't nobody wipe this smile off my face
Got joy in my heart, angels on my side
Thank God almighty, I saw the light
Gonna look ahead, no turning back
Live everyday, give it all that I have
Trust in someone bigger than me
Ever since the day that I believed

I am changed
And now I'm stronger

There must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water

Oh, yeah I am changed
Stronger

I still can't express my happiness for Avery and all of you with this miraculous news! it's so awesome!! AHHHH!! YAY - PRAISE GOD! I'm happy to hear you're heading to Lutsen. What a blessing. LOVE it up there. We always stay at Grand Superior in a cabin. So surreal and beautiful. Enjoy every moment - you all deserve a grand celebration. When you return, I'm putting a date on the calendar. We need to get together. Have an amazing weekend. Continued prayers that the final rounds of chemo are uneventful and that the appetite stimulant works. Prayers for safe travels to Lutsen and many memories made to last a lifetime. Love to you all.

This is an amazing gift from the Lord and his Healing Powers! I truly believe that the Frankincense is a testimony of healing to be shared, so others may benefit from it. Essential Oils are amazing! HE is good!
