Another succesful day

     Today Evan had another CT scan. It is interesting to see how much he changes every 3 months. He is so much more alert and curious about his surroundings. As usual it was not easy to keep him hungry for a long period of time. I woke him up at 5am to offer some formula. He was fighting it, more interested in sleeping, but I managed to feed him about 4oz. Then, 2oz of pedialite at 8am and then-nothing till after scan. Well, it was scheduled for 11:30, we were there by 10:30, but Evan did not get in till noon. Oh, that was not easy... He was so hungry, that as soon as they wheeled him out to get to short stay, he started turning around and flirting with a nurse.:)
    The doctor appointment was planned at 1:30. Well, we did not get to see her till 2:45. I think next time we'll avoid scheduling appointments around lunch time. :) The news from the Doctor were wonderful! She gave us pictures of a scan from November and from today. If Mat can figure it out, maybe he can post it on the blog. Wow, what a difference!!! Our baby is cancer free and hopefully ( very low chance of reaccurance!) we'll never have to battle again.
    Looking back, it is not an experience we asked for, but it was surely a very important lesson. Trust in the Lord, always have hope, never give up, be grateful for everything you have and remember to live in a moment, even one day at a time. We love every milestone Evan goes through. He is going for tooth #5 and still has no front 2 teeth. He looks like a little vampire with those fangs.:) He is still not liking being on his tummy, but sitting up quiete strong. He loves to explore his taste buds, and starting to pull away from baby food. He is starting to wave "good bye" and nozzles for kisses.:) He is not afraid on Charlie and Fuzzy, thinking that they are just moving stuffed animals.:) Oh, I could just go with this list.... I am just LOVING to be a mom to an infant again, even after 8 years!!! He is such a joy to all of us and now that he is doing well, we are starting to enjoy normal life again.
       As always, thank you to all of you, our friends and family, for being there for us, physically or emotionally.... God bless!

Hello Everyone

Evan has been doing well in all of his check ups. He weighed in at 26lbs 11oz. during his last check. We have a scan scheduled for this Friday. Hoping for more good news.  Thank you for all of your kind words and prayers, they are really helping us.
