So Please remember to pray for a good outcome next week. His scans take place on Wed and Thursday.

Also remember that the Family Fun Day on June 12 is fast approaching and will be lots of fun! It will be held in Show Low, Az

5K Early Registration $20.00, Late Registration $25.00. 
1 Mile Early Registration $15.00, Late Registration $20.00. 

Almost that time again...

So its almost time for Konner to go in for his scans. I am excited yet very nervous! All the Dr's say he has a really good chance of his tumor shrinking and I am just hoping and praying. Lately Konner has been so sick. He is teething, has bad allergies, and the effects from chemo are all wearing on him. Its so sad to see him in pain and uncomfortable all the time.  Today Kyle and I got to get away to stroll the mall and we went into the pet store. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing those little puppies. I want to get one sooo bad. I just thought hmmm.... I bet Konner would love this little guy... Then again Konner is only 3 months... Well Konner goes in tomorrow to see if his platelet levels have picked up and if they have then he doesn't have to go back till Wednesday of next week. If they are still low then he has to get a transfusion. Thank you again for all your amazing support and prayers.

Too sick

Hey everyone,

Konner is really sick right now. He has been vomiting non stop the last couple of days and its ALOT not just a little spit up here and there. I mean it soaks up his shirt and blankets. Good thing he had an apt today to check his levels. Unfortunately his Hemoglobin levels are really low so he has to get a transfusion. Hopefully with this transfusion he will start to feel better. Please keep him in your prayers today!

Here are 2 pictures of Konner. Most of you have already seen these, if I have your email address. The first one of him is before chemo round 2 and the 2nd is right after chemo. You can also see how much his hair has thinned out since starting chemo. It is falling out in clumps still.

Konner is doing good so far. He has spit up a couple of times today and he was a little sick last night. I am trying to keep up on his meds too keep him comfortable. He is still all smiles and it warms my heart. I love my baby and I cant wait to get him healthy!

(Getting ready to punch round 2 in the face!)

Almost done......

So we are still here. So far things are going good. Konner has been resting for about 2 hours. He is finally done with chemo he is just getting his after fluids to help flush the chemo out of his bladder. No complications and he is a little champ. I will make sure to update through out the week. Also I'm not sure if I have put on here that Konners hair has been falling out slot lately. His pillow was covered in hair. But he is still smilling.

Round 2

Today is Konner's 2nd round of chemo. He starts at 9 this morning. Fortunately its only a 1 day treatment so that means we get to do it outpatient at the clinic. Wish him luck and many prayers

Almost time for round 2..........

Its almost time for round 2 of chemo and I feel as though I have not slept in over a month. Konner is more and more uncomfortable and im not sure if its cause of the meds he is taking or from the 1st round of chemo. His hair is also starting to thin out. Today we were able to get his pictures taken as well as our family pictures too. Matt Greggersen from Vain Photography is a good friend of ours and he did such an amazing job. As soon as he is done with them I will post a few of Konner on here. Konner is such a precious little guy. And even all that he is going through you would never be able to tell that he has cancer. He is such a little trooper!

Clinc Appointment today

Today Konner had his 2nd Appointment at the Clinic today. He looks really good and the Dr said I can STOP giving him his Neupogen shots!!! His White Blood Count was at 30,000!!! That is crazy high so no more shots till after his 2nd round of Chemo. His ANC levels were rising so that is good as well. His Platelet levels were a little low but not low enough for a transfusion so that is great! He will start his 2nd round as scheduled on the 11th! Also another one of his test came back and his tumor is considered normal and not abnormal so that is some other great news. His Dr. said that all the test are coming back favorable for lil Konner!!! Thank You all for your PRAYERS keep them up cause they are working!!!!


Hey everyone I just got Konner's Fight Bracelets today!! If You would like a bracelet leave me a comment here or email me at

Peaceful Sunday...........

Today has been just that, A peaceful Sunday. Konner has been doing good today. A little less pain then the other days. Today Kyle Let me sleep in till 12 can you believe that. I have not slept that long in SOOOOO LONG! It was a much needed rest since I have been getting about 4 - 5 hours tops, of sleep since Konner was Diagnosed with NB. And it was also nice for Kyle to bond with all 3 boys!

Tomorrow is Konner's next Clinic appointment with Dr. Eshun. I am hoping that things go great! Im also going to see if they will give the lil man a different kind of pain killer. The one he is on doesnt seem to be working. I hope that Konner's ANC levels are on the mends so we can so kick off with our 2nd round! I want to get my little man back to 100%!. And thanks to all of the AMAZING people he has in his life we are on our way! Thank you again for being so nice to our family. Thank you For all your wonderful prayers!
