My beautiful niece Gracie was recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (cancer). It is still early in the diagnosis and we are awaiting results to know more about the fight that Gracie will face. I've created this blog as an outlet for friends and family to stay informed about her journey and a way for friends and family to make anonymous contributions towards her care and the mounting expenses her family will face. Gracie is a fighter and the bravest 3 year old I know. Hundreds of people love you Gracie and are praying for you. "Be strong and of good courage for the Lord thy God is with thee" Joshua 1:9

There's that smile we've been missing!

We took gracie for a ride in the wagon down to the cafeteria again. she chose a corn dog and fries. then we went outside to have a little picnic. She was laughing at daddy climbing up the playground and I caught a picture. We havent seen her smile in weeks. It made me sooo happy to see it.
Gracie woke up and had some cinnamon roll, then some corn dog and fries, and a few bites of pudding. more than the last 3 weeks combined! The doctors are happy with her progress and weight gain and blood counts. We are hoping to bring her home in a couple of days before chemo next week. It will be nice to have Easter at home. :)

  4. That is such a relief to see her doing better! Did you find an anti-nausea medicine that she tolerates well and is working?? Enjoy your time at home with her! That's wonderful!
