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.

Whats Going On...

We were lucky enough to have Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Troy come visit!  Thats right an actual visit, no planned extended baby sitting, no switching! 
So we just had some plain old fun. 
We took a visit down to the Houston Zoo.....
 When Faye was in the hospital she got a stuffed Flamingo she called it a "Duck Bird"
 She loved the Carousel ride.
 And crawling through this tube with fish swimming around you...they did it over and over again.
 And of course on the way home so tired!  Lucky Uncle Troy who just returned home from his mission in the Philippines in September, which is why they came to visit got the lucky job of pillow.
 Here is Faye on the 9th...two months being home from the hospital!  Look at that hair!
 It was only a day or two after this picture that Faye was standing in the shower, and when she went to wash her hair got this giant smile on her face, and squealed with excitement that she could feel her hair now.  Even after she got out of the shower she probably spent 10 minutes in front of the mirror with a spray bottle and a comb making it look just right.
 And of course we have been dressing up!
 One night Nick promised Mitchell they would go see a movie, so Faye, Nixon and I got to hang out.  I needed to run to the grocery store (you know the Saturday Night run). She had just taken a bath, I told her to go get some clothes on.  She came out wearing this and asked if she could take her wand..."why not right!"  Who wouldn't see this little girl at the grocery store and get a smile on their face?  

***Also in case you were wondering: Do you know how a wand works?  According to Faye they use "picky dust" and then they change your clothes to a wedding dress or a fancy dress. 
 This is my personal favorite!  What a cute girl!
