Amazing News!

‎1st surgery was a success! They removed a large (almost baseball size) tumor from Mallorys left side, there were absolutely NO complications, no blood transfusions and our sweet peanut is resting in her Daddy's arms as we speak. God is GREAT! He was certainty listening to all of our prayers today. We are still in for a long fight, but this 1st surgery has given us so much hope for our beautiful baby girl. You all have been so supportive and encouraging, please continue to keep us in your prayers as this is the 1st step in a long process to heal our beautiful baby.

We are praying that the bone scan, the bone marrow biopsy to come out cancer free. Next week they will be doing another test on the rest to make sure the cancer isn't anywhere else in her body. That is a very special test and we will explain it more as we get more information about it.

Tonight I will be hanging up pictures, some quotes we have already gotten and we are going to deck this Hospital Room out. It is our home away from home right now. We are so blessed to be surrounded by the best doctors, nurses, and staff. They have treated us like family and we will be forever grateful for them.


  1. Glad to hear the good news. Keep on pluggin' with hope and faith about it all. Funny how life can turn upside-down so quickly. Indeed your trial is reminding all of the rest of us how good we have it. Let us know if we can help.

  2. Happy to hear the surgery went well! Prayers will continue for good bone scan and bone marrow biopsy results. Gosh I remember that long wait like yesterday. I know exactly how you feel right now. Your daughter is beautiful! She will bring you much joy in the years to come. May our good Lord bring peace to your heart, Alice Shaeffer

  3. Such amazing news! The first good news of the week! I just want to thank you both for starting this blog. I admire your courage in opening up your hearts to the world and giving an honest look into what you're going through. Nobody will ever be able to comprehend the depths and pain of what you are feeling, unless they have gone through something similar... but to read such honest words from the both of you is inspirational and helps us to feel connected. I hope that this blog proves to be therapeutic for you and also as a tool for other families who struggle with similar hardships. That they may read this blog and know that they are not alone. Love you all, and praying day and night!
