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

Wow

WOW!!! Gracie is done with scheduled hospital visits! So surreal. this round went so well, she saved the best for last. each day was better than the one before and by the last day, she didn't puke OR need extra pain medicine (besides the continuous) We got out of the hospital this morning by 10, earliest time yet. We were on the road and pulled into the driveway just after 3. it is so good to be home. I did a lot of crying late last night after the enormity of it all finally hit me. it is hard to even process the idea that she is done with treatments (besides accutane) we feel so incredibly blessed! What a roller coaster of the last 14 months. I know it's not all suddenly wonderful but it sure is great to have come so far. she really is doing the best she has in a very long time. we are continuing wi TPN at nights for a while. I think part of the reason this round went so well, was those extra pounds she had gained. Hopefully she can gain another 5 plus. :) we thank you so much for your support and love and prayers and ask u to please continue your prayers that she will continue to improve and gain her appetite back, so she can be stronger and get off the g button feeds and TPN.
