A HUGE DAY for a Little Boy

Some of you know that my/our son Tristan has been struggling with a very rare disease called Linear Schleroderma en coup de Sabre.
I just went with him to Seattle Children's Hospital for a follow up appointment from a recent MRI
   We have great news!!!
 Our Pediactric Rheumatologist believes the lesion T. has on his right chin/jaw has ceased to be growing. We will be able to reduce his chemo treatments slowly into the fall and then watch, wait, and see if it comes back...or prayerfully not. He is not totally out of the woods with many other issues we are trying to figure out ( that's the nature of the Autoimmune diseases), but at least this is some sort of good news for now! Praise the Lord! & thanks again to all of you too! :) We are so blessed to call you family & friends.
 Life is good today!
Oh...and yes...
Thanks so much to YOU for all your wonderful thoughts, words of encouragement, and most especially:
& oh yeah...
P.S. As Tristan looks very THANKFUL TO YOU! in this photo....Elliot his younger comic relief of a brother (huge blessing to have a comic side kick when you're stuck in hospitals by the way) is saying a big thtththhhbhbhbhbhbhbhbhbht​hththththth!!!!!!!!!!!
