Hooray!

Well, the news is GOOD!!!!!

The test came back that the marker was "not amplified" which means that it was not aggressive.

AND THE BEST PART IS NO CHEMO!!!!! WAHOOOOOOO!!!!

The bottom line after all this is that we need to have chest ct's done every three months for the next two years. He said that while there is only a 10-15% chance that it will come back at all, even if it does, it probably will not spread anywhere else.

They will closely monitor her for at least 6 months but with each passing month without recurrence, we are one step closer to her being cured.

We could not have received better news.

Those who know me know that I am a very privately religious person. I can, however, say that I am sure that the only reason we are here today with this outcome is because of the thousands of people we know were praying for our little girl. I have said this many times over the past 13 days but we are more thankful than we can ever say.

What a whirlwind!

Oh, because I am also a proud mama, I thought I would attach this Easter picture of the kids that I had taken on Sunday. Here they are!

There really are no words that can express our thankfulness and joy at the work done by the Lord through the instruments of His prayerful people and the skill of the surgeons, physicians and staff at Medical City in Dallas. Little Eva is a trooper ...tenacious...and tough. In other words, much like her namesake. She is a true Dozier woman.

Kristi,

I'm seriously glad everything had worked out for you guys. I'm glad Vanessa's and my own prayers helped fuel the fire that was needed to reach to this point. I'm glad my darling niece will end up being fine after a little while.

You have no idea how tempted I was to head down there myself and give you support.

Seriously.

I was doing research and trying to budgeting myself on how I could manage such a thing if I were to go. Unfortunately, everything ended up me being in the deep red, so at least I can send my love and support here. I don't know if you're going to be there next Sunday, but I do hope to see you soon.

Love,

Nip
