To walk or not to walk?!

So the 2011 Phoenix cure search walk is on Feb. 26 2011. I have wanted to do a walk in Konner's name and I think this may be the perfect time. I have lots to talk about with my husband and see if this may be too much for us to organize at this time. Alot goes into making a team. You have to find participants and also find donations. I hope I can do this. It would be a great accomplishment! and A good way to help childhood cancer research!

Journey 4 a cure!

This special video was made by Journey 4 a cure! It is sure to bring tears to your eyes but will also make you more aware of how awful cancer is. Our kids should not have to worry about fighting for their lives. They should be able to be kids and live their youth worry free! click the link below to be sent to the video!

Sooo sick...

(He would not look at me for nothing) 

So guess who spent all night in the E.R. on monday night?! If you guessed Konner you are right. He got really sick on monday evening. Throwing up 4-5 times in 2 hours. And I mean like exorcist throwing up. It broke my heart. He became really lethargic and didnt want to eat or drink anything. So I spoke to his oncologist and she advised me to take him to our local E.R. As soon as we got there Konner got the VIP treatment lol. They were able to access his port and give him some fluids and some Zofran. as soon as he got that Zofran he was feeling a million times better! He got there asleep and not wanting to deal with anyone. He left there best friends with everyone and just smiling. Yesterday he was doing a little better bet slept alot so that was good. And today you can tell his tummy is still bothering him a little. But he manages to keep that adorable smile on his face!

MRI results from 12-9-2010

So we just got home safely from Konners appointment today. We received the results from his MRI that was done last week on 12-9-2010. All and All they are good. Still no progression from the tumor which is great news. Although Konner is considered in remission due to the tumor not growing or progressing he is still NOT classified NED (No Evidence of Disease). His tumor still has active spots of cancer but also has spots that they think might be calcification spots. The doctor did mention that his left leg may not be as strong as his right. When he performed the reflex test on Konner's lefs his left leg didnt respond well. So they said that they will watch that as well. Because of the surgeries Konner has had and him being so small its hard to tell if any nerves were damaged. Which brings me to my next thing. Remember when I was worried because Konner would scream inconsolably. Konner still at times will do that. and does not sleep through the night yet. So he said there may be some nerves that were damaged that they dont know about. and sometimes when you have nerve damage it can be painful. So they are going to watch that as well. For now he gave some things to try and do until Konner's next appointment and we will see if they work. But for now its almost Christmas time and I am so thankful to have this little peanut in my life. Konner is still a happy baby. He is now 10 months!! and I am also thankful for all of you and your prayers and the strength and support you give us! Thank You and Merry Christmas!!

MRI scans 12/9/2010

So today we woke up at 5 and got ready because Konner had to be at UNM hospital by 6:45. He had his MRI scans at 7:45. He was such a champ all morning. Smiling and playing with everyone. He even got a toy! He is such a doll and everyone just LOVED his eyes! They took us back to the MRI at 8 and I held him while they put him to sleep. They then took the images they needed and he was in recovery 3 hours later. Everything went really well they said. We will be back at UNM next week to receive the results! Prayers for good results! Thank you all for your support!

Prayers for An American Hero.

Today We are asking for special prayers for the Thode Family. Sgt. James Thode gave his life fighting the war in Afghanistan this week. Sgt. Thode worked with Konner's Dad in the Police department. I have heard nothing but amazing things about him.  The entire Community is deeply saddened by this loss. Please take a minute out of your day and pray for Sgt. Thode's family. He leaves behind a wife and 2 kids. Please pray that they will be comforted and have the strength during this difficult time. The Farmington Police department has set up the  James Thode Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo Bank to benefit the family. For more information contact Sgt. Robert Perez or Sgt. Shawn Scott at (505) 327-7701. Every little bit helps.

Please pray for those soldiers out fighting these wars. And please pray for those that have given all. This hits home for us because this past April Konner's Dad and My husband returned home safely from his 2nd tour.
