We've MOVED!

After 6.5 years we took the plunge and decided to put our house on the market. It was bitter sweet leaving our first home. We moved into the Rincon house in November of 2004, just a few days before our wedding. We found out we were pregnant in this house and brought our precious son home here as well. James and I have shared such wonderful memories in this house and it was a lot more difficult than I expected shutting the door and driving away for the last time. But, at the end of every chapter, you must start a new one, and we are super excited about our new home. We have been in the new house a little over a week and slowly it is all coming together. We did lots of painting and a few remodel projects so it has been crazy, but I think we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are super happy to be reunited with the Joneses! We do not live across the street from them like before but we are in the same neighborhood. Luke and James Thomas are very happy about this. Many of our new neighbors have come to meet us as well and we look forward to getting to know everyone better. It is a very exciting time!

James Thomas is doing amazing medically! Two months ago we had a little set back when his counts started to drop. We doubled his dose and was able to stabilize. Last time we did labs his counts had even gone up a little. We haven't tried to lower them back down yet but we go see Dr. B on Friday. I am thinking everything will look great and we can discuss a taper schedule. I have absolutely no complaints right now. James Thomas is an active little two year old and having a great summer. He just got back from a week at his Mimi and Papaw's house. My parents kept him so I get some unpacking done. He had a blast swimming, feeding horses, chasing kitties and just playing. I don't think he asked for me once! :(

My heart has been really heavy for all those families whose kids are not doing well medically and are losing their battles. I just read the blog of a little boy named James who died from a brain tumor this weekend. I am so sad for his parents and can not imagine if this ever happened to us. It really makes you savor each day and thank God the blessing of each new day.

I don't have any pictures right now but will post some soon.
