Well hello,
I am being a very bad blogger. Taylor's latest MRI results were in on Friday, February 11, 2011. ALL CLEAR. Mindy said when she was off the phone just vibrating. She laughed and said she probably should have been vibrating before the news, but I think she has been trying to be really brave and not focus to much. I am so relieved with the news. We all seem to get really depressed, edgy, possibly crazy around MRI time so its nice to be sane again.LOL Funny thing is that our Mom who generally is always the more pessimistic this time was completely unfazed. She was like "it's a miracle, so I have to believe." Boy do I love my Mom!

I have not seen my darling girl and think I may be going into withdrawals. I MUST see her this weekend even if I have to just show up at their house and peek through windows.LOL My Mom had her for a sleep over yesterday and has filled me in on all her "latest". Taylor had a "Shut up" session where Taylor told Grandma to "Shut up" and then would say "I don't have to shut up", LMAO I think Mom was wondering what that was all about. Mindy told Mom that she has been doing this a bit lately, but that they tell her that she can't say that, to say "be quiet"....LOL I did the same with my kids, told them it was a "bad" word and they were not allowed to use it. I still think it would be funny to hear Taylor telling people to "be quiet". The nerve of her as she is usually the loud one! LOL She is obviously testing her boundaries.

Grandma was also super impressed with Taylor's potty training, she thinks Taylor is training herself. Yes Grandma, Taylor is BRILLIANT! LOL

On Friday, February 11 Landon, Mindy and myself got to experience a very short volunteer stint at the annual Valentines Day Hair Massacure. What an absolutely amazing event! Landon did decide on shaving his head so he is a bald eagle. I am so thankful we got to be a part of the event. It was so surreal and possibly a sign as I had many "Taylor" registrants (although some different spellings of the name).

MRI February 8th

So Taylor's next MRI is February 8th. Please send all your well wishes, prayers, and hope to us - we are starting to get wound up in preparation for this day - as we do every 3 months!

I just wanted to thank all of you for all of your support, I am constantly in awe of how many people care and support us. Just this week, I had three lovely surprises at work from some colleagues that most certainly made me want to cry, I can honestly say there are some fabulous people that work with me. For every one of you that thinks about us from time to time, and maybe just appreciates the smaller things in life, and doesn't take their children and friends/family for granted - I thank you for coming along with us on this journey.

And, for those of you who I haven't harassed yet, we are participating in the 2011 Hair Massacure at WEM on Friday February 11th, so if you would like to make a donation, please sign on to the website and if you pledge a participant, Landon and I are both listed along with the team name "A Wish for Taylor" - This cause is especially close to us, as it funds the pediatric oncology ward at the Stollery, the Make a Wish foundation, and the Ronald McDonald house...I would say almost every kid we have met in our two and a bit years has benefited from these charities...and I couldn't imagine life without them.

Thanks again, and we will keep you posted with regards to the MRI results!
