Holy Reflexes!!!

Celebrating our 24th anniversary with our children!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Once again we celebrated "Giving Thanks"!  God has blessed us in so many ways that we are amazed and overwhelmed when we try to count our blessings.  Obviously the greatest visual one for everybody who knows us is that Elizabeth is still with us and in remission.  We are seeing some long term side effects rear their ugly head, but they are what they are and we will deal with them together.

Elizabeth had her nine month post treatment check up, Nov. 22, 2011.  Her lab (blood work) looks great!  The new news is that her REFLEXES are finally coming back!!!!  The nasty Vincristine (mean christine) is finally  starting to leave her system.  That chemo was a vicious one on her nervous system and caused a severe amount of bone pain.  Once again......a blessing that we will graciously receive!

Basketball, basketball, basketball,  what more can I say.  Elizabeth tried out for the Mason Basketball team and made it!!!  It has been the best thing for her self confidence and for her physically.  She runs up and down the court just sucking air and is so fatigued when she gets home, but is so happy  and thankful for this chance.  She loves every minuet of practice, playing, and being a part of this team.  Elizabeth has not played ball since seventh grade and was thinking that this was one sport that she would not make it back too.   Yet again....another great blessing!!!

Thank you to everyone that supported our efforts to raise money this year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Our First annual Blazin With Love 5k run/walk and corn hole tournament was a gigantic success.  Together raised over $32,000 and we're the number one fundraising team in the Tri-State area!!!!!   We will be gearing up for the next 5k/corn hole soon. The event will be sometime in September 2012, so mark your calendars! You can follow us on Facebook:
to get updates and see pictures from the event in Sept.  We will also be working on a web page for next year and will keep you updated about that.

We are now 37 months away from that dreadful night that changed our lives as a family forever.  We would never want anyone to go through the horrible times that come with cancer, but out of that nightmare has come so much good.  Elizabeth has the best outlook on life and living.  I believe it is only something you get from having to go through a life and death ordeal.  I am so proud to do life with her.  She teaches me new things about myself everyday and keeps me grounded as to what life is all about.  As I stated earlier, long term side effects are rearing their ugly head, but so are wonderful gifts that God has given us through this journey.  We are all growing as a family and finding new strength within ourselves that we never knew we possessed.

Please continue to pray for :
Continued remission for Elizabeth.
Her cold or whatever it is that she has to go away.  Pray that it is not Mono and just some little cold.
For the Doctors, nurses, and staff that so lovingly take care of these children.
For Joel and Maya, that they remain GVH free and continue on in good health from their transplant.
For Jimmy.  He has surgery to scope and stretch his esophagus Nov. 28, 2011, and to see if his disease is still under control.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6

May God continue to bless all of you and keep you safe during this Holiday Season!

Blessings & joy,

Life the Past Seven Months!

First treatment free vacation!

Homecoming 2011

Elizabeth's beautiful quilt made from her many t-shirts!

Randy has been asking me to write an update for the blog for the past several months.  I don't think he realizes how hard this update is for me.  Our life is so different in just the past seven months than it has been in the past three years, October 25, 2011 will be three years. I can still see that evening as clear as if I were reliving it now. 

I go back and reread the posts, comments, and watch the videos and feel like it was just yesterday and then sometimes I look at a picture and feel it was a lifetime ago. Enjoy each day you have and don't get caught up in the "nothingness" of life.  I said in one of my posts that one of the real tragedies in the end would be to forget all the lessons learned on this journey.  Some days I find myself not living the lessons and getting caught up in that "nothingness".  I get pulled into the ugly current parts of everyday living.  I now have the perspective to pull myself back and live life in the moment that I didn't have before Lizzy's cancer journey, the way we should all live our lives.  We use to live minute by minute and I thought that was so difficult at the time.  I now see why it is important to live in the moment.  You don't have time to worry about the future.  God knows the future and he is the only one who needs to.  All we need to do is live for the moment, trust, love and take care of what God has given us and he will take care of the rest, he always has and always will!

So many wonderful things have happened in the past seven months.  The biggest being on Feb. 15, Liz ended her two and a half year treatment for ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). March, we went on our first family vacation without medication or having to go to the Children's Hospital for blood draws and she had hair!   We had an "End of Treatment" party at our house in July.  She received the most beautiful quilt from her sports families and friends.  She is holding it in the above picture with the help of some of her friends.  It is on her bed as her bedspread!  We ended July out in Hilton Head with family and had a wonderful time.  August Liz tried out for the Mason Volleyball Team and made Varsity. She loves the game and loves her teammates!  We never thought that she would be able to return so quickly to the game, but she has!  I should have known that nothing would stop her.  She just beat the biggest opponent of her life .... CANCER!  Lizzy started school in Aug. and has been able to go to school everyday except once a month on her clinic visit day.  She also turned 17 on Aug. 25.  Lizzy is looking forward to trying out for basketball this fall.  I am excited about that too! I LOVE basketball!  She is still weaker and smaller than the girls she will be defending, if she makes the team, but with time, weight training, and practice, she will get stronger.  Liz has gained 40 pounds since Feb., mostly in the past three months.  Most people (girls) would freak out about gaining 40, but she ended her treatment at 105 pounds on a 5'11.5" frame.  She truly was looking like a cancer patient....NOT any more :)  Liz remains a great student and is having fun being a kid and living life agin!  On Sept. 3, we had our first annual Blazin With Love race!  Our team, with the help of many of you, made over $21,000 from the race for a total of $31,000.00 for research for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and best of all, Liz won her age division (well not really, she won the age group 20-25, Brittany, her best friend, won their age group)  Dr. Absalon, her oncologist, and family came out to the event to run. He said the best gift was when "I saw Liz running in the race with her big smile on her face".  We just LOVE our Dr. Absalon!

Liz remains in remission and for this we are so blessed and fortunate.  There are too many people still losing their battle to blood cancers.  Liz will live with the constant fear that it may resurface....this is where living in the moment is very helpful....We cannot worry about the future. We need to embrace the gift of today that God has given us.  Love each other like God loves us.  If I can hold on to this one simple lesson, I know that life will be so much richer.  I have a great group of friends that help me stay focused.  Life is a journey that has rough roller coasters and smooth roller coaster, we are now on a smooth roller coaster.  

Thank you for being faithful followers of Liz and her journey.  Giving generously of your time, prayers, and finances.  Without all of that we would not be where we are today.  As time goes on, I see even more clearly why all three are so important.

Please continue to pray for:
Liz to remain in remission. Every month when we go for blood work it is a bit nerve racking.
For the newly diagnosed, about 44,000 in 2011.
For those that will loose their battle, about 11,000 per year.
For the scientist and doctors that are trying to find a CURE for blood cancers.
For the patients and families on A5, for strength and hope.
Joel Brown, to continue to become stonger and healthier on his road to recovery.
Maya Collins, to overcome her nausea, come home from the hospital, and live life cancer free!

Blessings and God's grace ~

Four months out!

Liz had her monthly check-up today and things look good. Her counts have gone down a little but still in the normal range. I suppose ours do the same thing, it's just we do not have cancer or are not in remission from cancer. The doctor is not concerned, he said it is probably her body fighting a minor cold or allergies.
She is looking so healthy and strong, one would never know that she has been in a fight for her life. I am so proud of her and the way she has handled every situation she has been in since she was diagnosed.

Our race is up and running, no pun intended. We are so excited about it! Go to and look for Sept. 3, 2011 Blazin With <3 (love) and register. It is an evening race with cash prizes for the race and corn hole. Corn hole space is limited so if that is what you want to do, sign up quick! Come on out that Saturday evening and support five wonderful kids from the Mason School district that have blood cancers. If you are not running, we will also have the Blood Unit there from Hoxworth, to donate blood. Hoxworth is donating $10 per person to the race for people who donate that evening. They will also be doing Be The Match for the bone marrow. PLEASE, be a hero for someone. None of these kids would be here without blood products. Liz would not have made it through Saturday night without the blood products.

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:16

Please continue to pray for the researchers and doctors that are fighting to save these children and adults.
Pray for the patients on A5 and their families.
Pray for the ones that have been told right from the start that they cannot be saved.
Pray for Joel Brown. He is doing well and so close to the end of his BMT. Pray for him to stay germ free and healthy.
Continue you to pray for little Maya Collins, another Mason student. I believe she is around seven,she has AML.

Life is not always fun and easy but it is always a gift. Treasure the time you have been given.

May you be blessed beyond measure and love always ~ Christine

My Fundraising Page

My Fundraising Page:

Wow, what a journey we have been on over the past 2.5 years. We could never have survived it without your support. Thank you for your financial generosity to our cause and helping us try to find a cure for blood cancers. Not only are you helping the thousands with blood cancer, you are also supporting various types of cancers. Some of the drugs and chemos that have come from your support have crossed over into other cancers and illnesses. You should be very proud of the good that you are doing.

Elizabeth is now in full remission and off of treatment. Her last chemo was February 15, 2011. She is still on bactrim and will be through August 2011. Her blood work that was done on April 11, 2011 showed her ANC (immune system) at 3750!!!!! If you remember, she was always neutropenic, under 500. She is gaining some weight back, her hair is growing and filling in, and she is back to school full time and playing volleyball. Lizzy's port, which is the area that all the visceral chemos were given, was removed on April 12, 2011, another milestone in this journey.

We are entering a "New Reality" and one that looks brighter! No longer will be be going to the ER in the middle of the night, no more chemo making her sick and putting her into remission at the same time, no more neutropenia and isolation, pills, needles (well still a few of those), seeing doctors 5 times a week, blood and platelet get my point.

This year the Light The Night event has changed venues, it will be at the Mason Municipal Building. The event has gotten too large for the walks previous location, this is a good thing! We would like to get a team picture before the evening events begin. I will let you know when and where later

Thank you and many blessings ~


Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer lives.
  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!

Three months out!

Liz and Joel ...  just hangin at the Brown's;)

Elizabeth continues to do well. Her platelet count is finally above low normal range. Low normal range is 150k, she hit 160k!!!!!!!! We were questioning if she  acquired an intolerance to platelets. This can happen when you receive platelets all the time, like she did. Praise God for answering prayers.

Lizzy's immune system, ANC, is 2840. the normal range for an immune system is between 1800 - 8000. Her lymphs are still low at 22 and the normal range is 34-42. She will get there, it is just Her immune system is just a little baby ")

Lizzy's next check up is June 10. Please continue to pray for her body to continue to recover and for her to stay in remission. Remember, there have been wonderful strides made in the way of blood cancers but...there is still no cure; only long term survival. As a parent, this is not acceptable.

Jimmy's EE has gotten worse since the last scope. No changes have been made in his protocol and he will be re-scoped in three months. As far as his hips go....he has issues, but tries to work through them. He doesn't want to give up any summer time for recovery time. His body will tell us when the replacement will happen. Right now he has learned how over come some of the pain and discomfort. Please continue to pray for Jimmy and the challenges that lie ahead.

Catherine will be getting her tonsils out next month. Please pray that the surgery is successful and she has as little pain and discomfort as possible.

Joel continues to do well and is one day away from day 100. He/we are praying that he will be able to start school next year. After placing an EG tube, feeding tube, down his throat he is finally gaining weight!!!!

Ephesians 1:16 

I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,

Blessings and prayers  always ~ Christine

Quick up-date

Liz is doing fabulous and gaining strength everyday.  Her port was removed last Tuesday; the end of an era! She will be on bactrim through Aug. 3x a week, 2x daily, with monthly clinic visits and blood draws. The rate of remission fall-out drops significantly after five years.  You can imagine the anxiety we have once a month.  It sure beats the daily anxiety that we use to have.

Jimmy has his surgery Monday for his EE.  Dr. Putnum did not have to stretch his esophagus and did not see any yeast in his throat, this is a good thing!  We will hear sometime this week if how well he is doing with this disease and if there will be any change in his daily routine.

We are putting on our first Blazin With Love 5k on Sept. 3, at 5:30 p.m., as well as a corn hole tournament and the blood mobile will be there so you can give blood if you would like :)  If you are interested in helping with this wonderful event, which of course, all proceeds will be going to Blazin With Love for the Light The Night Walk, for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This is an update on Critter from his step mom, Michelle:  "Everyone please pray for critter he was just taken over to ICU. He is having problems from blood pressure, swelling, and he is out of it. They are putting him on a ventilator to do a procedure do to his blood pressure and sedation If you can just think of him before you go to sleep and when you wake up."

Please continue to pray for all the children on A5.  You watch children live and you watch children die on this floor.  These children become friends, good friends.  It is hard to watch your friends die. 

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident. (Psalm 27: 1, 3)

First Post Check-up

James 1:2-4
2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.3  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be prefect and complete, needing nothing.

Something my family has lived and learned from for 30 months.  I hope we never forget the lessons  we have learned and that we will continue to grow in God's grace and love.

Please keep Elizabeth in your prayers.  Tomorrow is the first post treatment check-up.  She will have a long morning starting at 7:15 a.m. in the Hematology/Oncology Clinic (hem/onc), 7:45 with a new visit to the Hem/Endocrine, 8:30 back to the Hem/Onc clinic, 10:30 DXA Scan (bone density), and 11:10 Pulmonary Function Testing (breathing treatment).
She has been very busy and consumed with the OGT testing at school and has not given her visit much thought.  I hope she continues to NOT give it any thought, worrying does not do any good.
Please continue to pray for:
Finding a cure,
keeping Liz in remission,
Joel Brown and his recovery from his bone marrow and staying in remission,
For peace and strength for Critter and his parents, Stan and Michelle,
For all on A5.

Blessings and prayers,

Praise God!

Saying goodbye to the operating room and chemo!!!

Getting ready to leave the clinic.

When we came home that night there was a surprise waiting for her!

Signed shoes by the staff!

Wow! What a journey the past 2.5 years have been.  I can't even tell you that there was a 2009.  Our lives have gone from 2008 to 2010 with 2009 being a blur somewhere in our lives.  2011 has merged in with 2010 along the line but I am confident that it will have a life of its own soon!

As most of you know who are on my facebook, Liz is through with her treatment phase.  Thank God she will no longer be getting sick from treatment and only be getting stronger.  I asked her on the ride home from the hospital if she could tell me how she felt about this phase being over and her response was "No, there are no words to describe how I feel."  I am so proud of her and how she has handled this horrible disease and I know that I will continue to be amazed and proud of how she handles the rest of her life and this disease. 

Our new reality for the next five years is not nearly as intense and definitely more normal. Liz will have blood work and a physical monthly for the next 18 months, at the end of this time she will  graduate to every other month for a year, then graduate to every three months for 18 months, then down to every six months for 18 months, and finally once a year for the rest of her life.  

Liz will also be seeing an Endocrinologist. She will be seeing the Endocrine Doctor for Reproduction/Infertility issues.  This can be a common issue for children who have under gone chemotherapy and radiation.  Please pray that any issues Lizzy is having will resolve on their own.  

Her first visit with the Endo  Doctor will be March 17.  Liz will also have a bone density test and will have to fast for her blood work.  She will have a few EKG's (electrocardiogram).  An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. The EKG and bone density tests are normal tests done due to the amount of toxic drugs and steroids that have been put into her body.

We continue to give the glory to God.  He did not give Elizabeth Leukemia, but he put the wonderful team of doctors, nurses, staff, and Children's Hospital in our path.  He gave us a wonderful team of community, prayer warriors, old friends and new friends.  This disease is not a private issue, it is one that knows no stranger.  There is no way we could have or would have wanted to keep this private.  We would not have made it through without all of you. We will be having an end of treatment party sometime in May/June.  Stay tuned to the blog for more information on it.

On a side note, we are planing a 5k walk/run and corn hole tournament on September 3, at 5:30 p.m.  The run is called Blazin with Love and will be in honor of Liz, Joel, Annie Coyle, and a few other Mason students/teachers that have cancer or are in remission.  All the profit will be going to Team Blazin with Love for the Mason's Light the Night Walk on Sept. 15, 2011. The LTN walk supports the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society.  Stay tuned for all the fun events.

Please keep Joel Brown in your prayers.  He is progressing like he should but is in a great amount of pain and discomfort.  Please pray that the engraftment of his sister's cells take root in his body and start to become his own.

Please keep Critter and his family in your prayers. Pray for peace, comfort, and wisdom for them.  Let them be at peace with the decisions that they have to make.

Please pray for peace and comfort for Courtney, another one of Mason's special little ones. She was the other child in the fundraiser with Liz and Joel from Gary's barber shop in 2008 or 2009 (see I told you 2008/09 are the same for me). 

Thank you to all the student, staff, and friends that came out for Zumba for Leukemia.  It was fun and a great success!

Always praying!

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;

make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!

Friday, February 11, 2011


Okay, we need prayers for Liz.  She has been sick off and on since Thanksgiving.  We went to the hospital yesterday, Feb. 10, due to her being sick and her end date so close.  The docs ordered blood cultures for all sorts of  virus and bacterial infections.  Mary Snow, her nurse coordinator,  called us today and said that Liz has tested positive for the RSV/PCR virus.  UGH..............
The game plan for the weekend is:  rest and hydration.  She has labs on Monday and we pray she can finish out her chemo on Tuesday as planned for the last two years.  On Tuesday she will arrive at the hospital at 6:30 a.m., have a complete physical evaluation to see if she is healthy enough to go through the surgery and receive the chemo's.  If she is not able to complete her treatment on Tuesday, Dr. Absalon said the treatment will be rescheduled.  Needless to say, Liz is very sad about the new turn of events.  If Liz has a fever at any time, she will need to go to the ED and will be admitted for at least 48 hours to 10 days.
Thank you for your prayers and being faithful,

Tuesday, February 8, 2011


WOW! WOW! WOW!  That is all that I can say.  Well, I can say a lot more but I won't.

This has been a very long and hard road.  We have come 1,097 days out of our 1,104 days of treatment.  We are down to SEVEN days left.  It feels so surreal.  I am going through her apothecary draw, her medicine draw, filling her pill box and I realize that I am at the end, the box is empty for the last two weeks of this month, I keep picking it up, wanting to fill it thinking that I have forgotten to do this.

As I look back, I have seen tremendous growth in Elizabeth, our family, and her friends.  What a gift God has given to all of us in that respect.  Even as I say this, I find myself feeling very weak and frightened to take her off of her chemo.  The chemo is the agent fighting the monster that invaded her body two and a half years ago, without her having the chemo, I feel like I am free falling. I need prayers for strength not to borrow worries from tomorrow.  All I can do is continue to pray to our Father that he keeps Elizabeth in remission; that this cancer never rears its ugly head again.  Knowing that there is not a cure is a frightening reality for a parent to face.  I can only pray and drop my worries at the foot of the cross.  

Thank you to everyone that has shared in our  journey.  We could not have made it through the past few years without your prayers, help, and great show of love and support.  Please, NEVER stop praying for Liz and those suffering with cancer.

Specific pray requests:
Elizabeth finishes out her last seven days strong
Minimal side effects from her chemo
Joel Brown, that Alli's bone marrow engrafts  and begins to make it his own, mouth sores, fevers, and rest
Critter, that the spots found in his lung and brain are just by-products of the chemotherapy
The staff on the 5th floor of Children's Hospital

If you want to be a hero to someone ...... go and donate blood or platelets this week!

Blessings and Love in Christ,

A visit from the Rosendale's.  Lizzy giving Marianne a Blazin With Love tee!

We are getting closer to the end of Elizabeth's treatment!  Liz will go to Children's on Feb. 15, for her last dose of Vincristine and Lumbar Puncture with Methotrexate. Liz will take her daily chemo, Meccptapurine, through Feb. 17, and end her steroids on Feb. 19.   The side effects of the Vincristine will hit on or around Feb.  22.  
I don't know what the next ten years will look like.  I know we will have monthly check-ups for the next several years, but other than that......I will let you know when I find out.  I should get that information on the 15th of Feb.
Hitting this mile(million mile)stone is bitter sweet.  We never thought we would get through all of the treatments, side effects, radiation, ER visits, clinic visits, day hospital visits, blood and platelet transfusions, etc. etc. etc, but here we are and being off of chemo for the first time in 2.5 years, begs for your mind to wonder and worry.  There is a hugh  comfort in knowing that she is taking something to keep it from coming back.  From talking to other parents, I know this is a very normal thought and that I am normal.  Liz has also expressed that she is scared too.  I guess this fight for us will never be over, not until there is a "true" cure for Leukemia. One without the threat of falling out of remission.  We will be having a party to celebrate her end of therapy sometime in April.  Stay tuned for more details.

Update on Jim ~ He is doing very well and as long as the 2x daily steroids work, he will be able to continue on in this treatment plan. His esophagus will be stretched again in May, by Dr. Putnum. He will also be checking to see if he has any yeast infection in his throat from his steroids.  This is an easy fix ... just another drug, an antibiotic! 

Please continue to pray for Joel Brown.  He is now in the hospital getting ready for his Bone Marrow Transplant for Feb. 1.  His sister, Allie, is the donor.  Joel will be in the hospital for the next 100 days.  Please pray for the health of his sister, that the transplant is a success for Joel, and the peace for the entire family.

Please continue to pray for: the research for trying to find a cure, the doctors, scientist, nursing staff, Hoxworth, and those who give so freely to help save the lives of others.

There is an event at the Mason community center, March 12, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. copy and paste the link to go to the event.  It should be a lot of fun for the biking enthusiasts! All proceeds go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society!


Blessings ~ Christine

Psalm 18:6

    But in my distress I cried out to the Lord; yes, I prayed to
    my God for help.
    He heard me from his sanctuary;
    My cry to him reached his ears.
