Cancer Free!!!!

Our prayers have been answered in the GREATEST ways...God is SO good!!!

We just returned from the top cornea specialist in the South, possibly the U.S. and we have such good news!!!

NO CANCER!!! Not only, no cancer, her scarring on her cornea has improved by 30%! We have been putting steroid drops in her eye and it has been clearing up the fog on her eye. The doctor said to increase the amount of drops we are giving her and she may be able to regain a little vision in the eye ( that is up in the air, though ).

She also said that if things stay status quo, then at age 14 or 15, we can revisit transplanting. They don't like to do it at this young of an age, but if they are going to do it on a teenager, they like to do it before driving age so they can have a good working eye for driving ( good thing, huh? : )

Thanks for all of your prayers!!! God heard them, we felt them and they worked!!! We are celebrating today. I feel like two tons have been lifted from my shoulders....now if I could just lose two tons of lbs. : )

Hi!
I found your bloggy from another adoptive Mom's blog and have been enjoying your posts. Wanted to let you know that I've been praying for your Peach and was so thankful for your family's wonderful news!!

Paige is beautiful and reminds me so much of our Anna girl that we adopted from China in 2005. Your relationship is much like our grown sons, so precious and hard to find in today's busy world.

I look forward to following along and promise to Live Big and Laugh Often, oh! and pray!!:)

Take care and hug your family and tell them you love them bunches!!
