Trey had scans on Wednesday and they came back clean again. The doctors feel like he is doing very well and his recovery is coming along nicely. He is doing very well in school and stayed busy this winter with wrestling and just finished basketball. He took a trip to Florida with his brother, sister, grandma D, cousin Morgan and mom to watch mom run a marathon. The race was a fundraiser for Give kids the World, and included a trip to Disney World. Not a bad trip in January. Trey is also going to be a cancer ambassador for Children's Hospital. We don't know many details but he has a kick off luncheon at the Denver zoo Saturday and a fashion show with the Colorado Avalanche at the end of March. One sad thing that we experienced is that two of the people who gave a lot of care to Trey are sadly moving on our main nurse Kerri move to a new Children's location and Dr. Lindsey is going to Cincinnati to do some other research, they were both awesome throughout Trey's treatment. We will miss them. Prayers for strength to everyone affected by cancer.

Well Trey had scans on Monday and thank God they came back clean. This marked 1 year after the end of treatment, so it was certainly special. Where has the time gone?? He will now have scans every 4 months with his next in January. As you can see he is doing very well, as are his brother and sister. His hair is getting very dark black as it used to be more dark brown. He has finished speech therapy, which went well. He is getting stronger and is force to be contended with in sibling wrestling matches. He started Kindergarten and is very aloof when asked if he likes it. He loves it but cool guys gotta keep it on the down low ya know. He has been told that recess and lunch do not count as subjects when asked for favorites. He is busy this fall playing both soccer and flag football and likes to practice both in the living room with complete disregard for anything fragile. If mom shuts down practice he likes to record college or pro football games and make dad sit with him and break the film down to pick up tips or tell dad how Peyton Manning could be better. Jen is training for a marathon in January in Florida. The marathon is a fundraiser for Give kids the World village, which is where we stayed during Trey's make a wish trip and hosts families from all over the world. She is trying to raise $3000, which will help benefit more families staying there. It is an amazing place, with many amazing people. In addition Tommy, Taylor, Trey and Jen will volunteer to work at GKTW for one day while there. Here is a link with information and if you wish to donate.
Thank you for your continued support and God Bless.

Summer is here. We had a great time on the Make a Wish trip to Orlando as you can see in the picture. Trey and family were treated like kings and we were spoiled more than being at Grandma's house. The place we stayed is called Give kids the world and the title fits. Ice cream all day, 2 pools, dining room, disney character visits, train, minature golf and parade's almost everyday. As you can see the house's are made to look like a fairy-tale village which the kids love. It hosts families from all over the world who are on trips like ours. We managed not to run ourselves down while doing as much as possible. 2 of the Disneyworld park, Sea World and Universal. Lot's of walking, which helped to work off all the food. Trey started his trip to Disney and decided he could ride Space Mtn. Well, he had fun for half the ride and then he wanted it to stop. After that if he couldn't see what it did he didn't want on it. As you can see we had front row seats for the Shamu show as you can see. Great seats for most of the show and then at the end 3 of them pulled up and showered us with 3 waves of water. Drenched would be an understatement, but it was worth it. Trey got to take on Darth Vader and use all those sword skills he and his brother have been honing for years. Afterwards he got to meet Darth and get a picture taken with him, not to close thou since he is a bad guy. It was really nice to see everyone have a good time and a great experience for our family. We would never be able to say thank you enough to those who made it possible. We are very grateful for the trip and humbled at the same time as we met many other family's who went through as much or more than us. Trey is having a great summer playing baseball (just ask him he'll tell you how good he is), going to summer rec and hanging out with his big brother. He has scan's this next week and we pray they come back as clean as his plate on Mac & Cheese night. God Bless!

Trey was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma on December 12. This is a soft tissue cancer which accounts for 4% of all childhood cancers. 350 cases are diagnosed each year in the United States and the majority of these are in children younger than the age of 9. Forunately for Trey the Cancer is only located in his ear canal and nowhere else in his body. He has a long road of treatments and tests ahead of him but with your words of encouragement he will make it.
