July 23rd, 2015

Well, today is the day that we have been praying for. For 4 years we have battled brain cancer, and it seems that Bennett has won this battle. The tumor is still there, but it continues to shrink, meaning he will  need no further treatments. So...today he will have his port removed and his eyes will have surgery so that they can work together again. Bennett will get to be a normal KID. He told me "Mommy, I get to have my superhero button removed!" I love hearing him say that. We will continue with MRI's for the next year every 3 months... next one scheduled for September 18th...but if it continues to shrink, we are in the clear. We did it. We beat cancer. :) The surgery today was pretty easy...his eyes are sore and red, he has to stay in bed the next week or so recooperating, but after they heal we can get back to normal...whatever normal may be. I don't remember what it is to be honest...but I think we will manage. Thank you to everyone who has stayed with us and prayed for us on this long journey. I hope this will be our last medical update...only time will tell though... here are a few pics from his surgery. ;) Love- Supermom
