Life is beaUtiful :)

It has been awhile since the last update.  Liz is doing wonderful, PRAISE GOD!!!
We did have to have her ECHO and EKG redone two weeks ago and the results were "Beautiful" as Dr. Absalon said; thank you for praying with us for the best results possible.  We also had her eyes checked at Children's to look for any side effects of her radiation and chemo treatments and I am happy to say that the Ophthalmologist said her eyes were very healthy and did not show any signs of damage at this time.

Liz is busy being a senior.  She is filling out College applications, going to football games, running cross country, thinking about basketball season, and trying to figure out what she wants to be.  She is looking into Special Education which I think is wonderful.  Before she got sick she always wanted to be in the medical profession now she is unsure.  She said she had enough of hospitals and I guess I can't blame her.  I bet in the end, she will end of in the medical profession anyway.  It may be a second career, but she will be in it in some form.  Liz is looking mainly at UC and OSU.  My choice is UC of course and both Catherine and James attend UC and love it!

I want to thank everyone who came out to the 2nd Annual Blazin With Love 5k.  We had a great time and made a lot of money for research.  This is our big fundraiser for our Light the Night Team.  The Light The Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society this year is Thur, Sept. 27, at the Mason Municipal Campus.  If you were unable to attend the race and would still love to be a part of the team you can go to:

and join our team to walk with us that night.  If you would like to carry a balloon and receive a t-shirt, you can join the team  and become a Champion For Cures by raising $100 or more to help support the work of hundreds of the world's best and brightest researchers in their search for better therapies and cures for blood cancers.

Please continue to pray for Lizzy's health and that her cancer stays in remission.

For Jimmy as he, his doctor, and myself try to figure out what food/foods he is allergic to through the elimination of several food groups. Trying to cook without dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, nuts/tree nuts, fish and shell fish, it does present a few challenges.

Pray for all that are battling cancer. It is a horrible disease and one that just keeps rearing its ugly head. Everyday I hear of a new case or a relapse and everyday it brings me back to my knees.

May God bless all of you with health and happiness!
