Please keep Tessa in your prayers...

We have all been sick with strep (myself included) and so we weren't terribly concerned when I found some lymph nodes in Tessa's neck swollen. I guess I was concerned because she hasen't had a sore throat,fever or any I called St.Jude's Hosp who said to have her pedi work her up. So, off to see our favorite Dr in the world, Dr Moody. So far all of tests are normal, the rest will come back tomarrow am but I called St Jude's back and because of her past history they want to see her tomarrow. I am sure that this is nothing but her cancer was so fast growing that I just want to cover all bases. So,if you are a praying person include Tessa...
until next time...

A week at St.Judes...

Well I leave in the morning for St Judes with Tessa. I am going to try to beat the snow that might come. We had to cancel her appt. due to snow so it is imperative that we make this one. They will be doing all her scans and her eye exam. She also has alot of out side appts, so we will be pretty busy.If you are a praying person please say one for her and all of the other children with cancer..
I will post more later when we know her results.
until later....

We Got 4 inches of snow and the kids just had the best time !
