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.

Avoiding the Flu
As if our lives aren't complicated enough, I came down with Influenza A this week. Yes, I got my flu shot last fall. Unfortunately, the vaccine isn't foolproof and the cooties found me and my stressed out immune system. I honestly don't remember ever being so sick. I was terrified that Austin would get sick. I was tested to confirm that it was the flu and the entire family was started on Tamiflu. Thankfully, Grandma came to save the day and help Kevin with the kids so I was able to quarantine myself in my bedroom for the week. Thanks Mom, we wouldn't have made it without you!

Jaxon and Grandma
By the grace of God, nobody else in the family got sick. The kids had a great week with Grandma and I slowly got better.
