4th of July/Other News

We had a great 4th! It started out with the annual Maple Run Neighborhood Parade... We joined in the festivities along with family and friends.

A fire truck led the parade and stuck around afterward so the kiddos could check it out. Jackson LOVED it! He's a big fan of any type of truck - here's the evidence!

We then had a great BBQ with Daniel's family, complete with hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, fruit salad... you get the idea. We were going to end the day with fireworks, however, Daniel wasn't feeling great and yesterday found out he has bronchitis - sweet. Oh well. We'll try again next year.

We got a call this morning from Jackson's geneticist. As you may remember, Jackson has routine abdomen ultrasounds done every 3 months. He had the first one at the end of March, then he had one recently in June. This recent one showed unusual growth in a few places, including his lymph nodes and spleen. We are going in to see the oncologist this afternoon, since tumor growth is highly associated with SGBS. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Firetrucks are a highlight in this household as well. I will continue to keep Jackson and the entire family in my prayers as you await news from the oncologist.
