Thank you for taking time to follow Meaghan's journey of healing as she battles Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer.

Meaghan, our five year old daughter, was diagnosed early November 2009 after an MRI revealed she had a 4 cm solid tumor in her cerebellum. The tumor resection, while successful, resulted in serious complications.

Cancer is a family affair and here I try to chronicle not only Meg's journey, but our whole family's as well.

A Few Photos To Share

After nearly four weeks of hospitalization, we are finally ready to bring the camera back into our lives. We'd like to share some photos of Meg with you.

Above: The kids were invited outside for a sneak peak at the Children's Hospital float for the Thanksgiving Day Parade. That's Meg in her blue wagon!
Here Meg just received a "real" puppy from her Aunt Helen. He whimpers and snores and moves his head. More importantly, he makes Meg smile.

As you can see here, Meaghan had some very special visitors earlier this week. On Tuesday, the Red Wings visited the hospital. Meg became agitated while in the room with all the other children, so my mom took her back to her own room. Well, she must have caught someone's eye, because they paid Meg a personal visit. She really enjoyed herself. My mom said all the players were wonderful, but Brad May took a special interest in Meg and stayed with her for a long time, stroking her hair and speaking to her. A big thank you to our Red Wings! You made Meaghan's day!!

Here Meg is showing me her new wheels! While it requires tremendous effort to keep her head and trunk upright, she enjoys being wheeled around for short trips.

Here Meg and I are adding accompaniment while the music therapist played "Jingle Bells."

We look forward to sharing more happy pictures with you all. Thank you for staying with us through our ups and downs.

May our Lord keep you in His care.
