Rocco is...

CANCER FREE!!!!!!!CANCER FREE!!!!!CANCER FREE!!!!!  CANCER FREE!!!!!CANCER FREE!!!!!  I don't think I can say it enough....CANCER FREE!!!!!  CANCER FREE!!!!!  We are unbelievably grateful and blessed beyond words!  God is so good! Thank you for all of your prayers! We are truly grateful! We received the report Tuesday night and couldn't be happier.

We still have a long road of recovery ahead of us, however. Two nights ago Rocco came down with a fever. I knew he isn't drinking enough fluids. Until last night, Thursday, he would not take the bottle. I had tried virtually EVERYTHING to get him to drink. He did like to use this spoon feeder that is used for medicine. So the night of the fever I made a smoothy of greek yogurt, apple juice, coconut oil, and banana. I poured it in the spoon and he drank it up! I had been trying anything for some calcium and fluids.


Wednesday I was at my wits end and he almost ended up at the emergency room for dehydration.  So, as against as I am about babies eating sugar, I gave him jello and gave him as much as he would eat!  That was the only thing could get down him!  Thank GOD we are on the up and up!


He was on Tylenol with codeine for pain from Saturday until Wednesday.  Yesterday I decided to see how he would do without the pain meds and thought maybe it was upsetting his stomach.  Low and behold he FINALLY drank from the bottle with a larger hold cut in it so it would be easier to drink.


Rocco PRE-Surgery (he is such a strong boy!)...


Rocco yesterday after drinking his first bottle post surgery, finally feeling better...



This has been one emotionally draining, heart wrenching process.  We are forever grateful that we can close this chapter and move on to bigger and better things (1st birthday bash comin!!).  However, I do have to say, my HEART truly has a big place for parents and children who have cancer.  I cannot fathom it!  We came close enough and I can honestly say the WORST thoughts would go through my head.  I cannot imagine losing one of my children.  

Thank you again for following along, for your words of encouragement but most importantly your prayers.  I know the power of prayer works!  God bless you all :-)
