Three-year-old Faye was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on April 11, 2011. After 135 days in the hospital, Faye was able to spend 3 years at home. On September 5th 2014 she was told that she had relapsed. She was able to achieve a second remission and had a bone marrow transplant on Oct 17th 2014.

Let's try this again!

Wednesday we surprised the pants off of Nick by being at the house when he came home from work!  His Aunt Jodi was in College Station helping take care of the boys.  When the doctors told me that morning that we were able to go home I seized the opportunity to finally surprise Nick with something.  It is a difficult thing to do being that he is so involved with everything. I called Jodi to see if she wouldn't mind driving down to pick us up and she was nice enough to do so.  We know she is feeling much better this time around and "cutter cookies" as Faye calls them (sugar cookies in shapes) have been made!

On a side note we know we have many people checking into see about Faye's progress.  We would like to take the opportunity to help out each of our cousins who are trying to adopt.  They say word of mouth is a powerful tool in the adoption process so we thought we would put the word out.

Luke and Misty are our cousins (Nick's side) and they are one of those select few on this earth that have such Christlike qualities it really sets them apart. They are so super fun and cute and are amazing parents. If you know anyone who may be interested please tell them to click on their picture on the sidebar to find out more.

Heather and Ryan (Stacey's side) are wonderful people that are a boat load of fun to be around.   They are two of the happiest people we have ever met.  They have such a strong faith and would make wonderful parents.  We would love to see them have the opportunity.  You can find their story/bio on the sidebar link as well.

This is GREAT news! Wahoo! I am so happy for you all to be able to have some much needed "down" time with family!

And I will pass the word if I hear anyone looking to give a very special gift to a sweet couple!

Yay! I'm so glad you're all home together. Here's to hoping her counts come up quickly so she stays healthy and fever-free, but not too quickly that you have to rush back in to start chemo round #3. I just love that little Faye. She reminds me so much of my Erin. Soon enough you'll be through and wondering if it was all just a bad dream.

You guys are so strong and doing such a wonderful job as you go this very difficult trail. There will be so many beautiful blessings that come from your faith and Faye will greatly bless many lives around you.

I hope you have a GREAT time together! These were the times that we cherished more than anything while Erin was treated for AMLeukemia.
