Hello everyone! Summer is just cruising by .... Nicky has his scan at U of M tomorrow morning of his spine, I ask that you please pray that the inflammation that was once present in the last MRI is completely gone now, and of course that there is NEVER any cancer period. He has had chronic ear infections since May - its seems as soon as we dodge one another one happens in the other ear which makes enjoying the water challenging for him because he just loves to be in the water. We will be meeting with ENT next week about his ears not closing since the tubes were removed and see what they think.

Other than that, its been a beautiful summer in Michigan this year. Nicky love boat rides and playing outside and he gets a kick out of teasing Haley our dog. He loves the pool and loves wrestling with Daddy and Christian. I have loved all the cuddling I get or random hugs are just the best! He must take after me because he LOVES to dance to music. He loves his movies and boy can he eat! He is getting bigger and stronger and more beautiful everyday. Please pray God continues to have His hands on our boy and that CURES are going to happen.

Please continue to Pray for the Paonessa Family, for strength in Luca's absence and for comfort and peace that only our Lord Can provide. I wanted to share this video of Luca with you all. His Daddy said something that I will never forget at his prayer service I attended.  His Daddy whom is a doctor said that at St Jude there is a wall with survival rates that are incredible - but my sons cancer wasn't on that wall, medulloblastoma - things need to change, while I listened I realized ependymoma isn't on that wall either. I am asking you to please help us change that by donating to the CURE SEARCH WALK at this link we will be walking soon, Sept 22 - Nickys 3rd Birthday - I hope you will join us in this fight! <3 I will update with the scan results when I get them, it may be a while since they will be sent to St. Jude to be reviewed. God Bless you all!!!
