On August 29, 2012 our lives took a major fork in the road when our son, Austin, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or ALL. This is the story of his battle. We share this in the hopes that some day he will read it and know how much he is loved and understand the journey that he has taken. I invite you to leave any comments or thoughts that you might have to show love and support to Austin.

After 6 days on the Oncology floor at Primary Children's Hospital, we FINALLY got discharged. Austin was fever free for more than 24 hours so he was deemed well enough to leave. We have to stay nearby as we have to come back to the Cancer clinic on Friday for more chemo and another LP, but it was so nice to be able to walk out into the sunshine. We are staying at my mom's house for a few days and Austin is enjoying being spoiled by Grandma. He made me promise that as soon as we got to Grandma's he could have some of her waffles because her waffles are the best in the whole world. Grandma was more than happy to oblige, as were the Eggo waffles in her freezer. Sometimes the simple things are the best.
