Ellie has about five more months on this Chemotherapy treatment and as it gets closer I get both excited and nervous. Wondering what the next chapter of our life has in store. I’m pretty sure Ellie might be on chemo therapy the rest of her life because anytime she has stopped chemotherapy her tumor has grown, but there is always the hope and wish that the chemo therapy has done its job. Only time will tell. So raise your glasses to Ellie we are celebrating 5 years of living. I also thought I would attach one of the very first posts I put up on Facebook after Ellie was diagnosed. Wish we didn’t end of being the 30%, but I know god has a plan. This post is from the Day of Ellie's 1st Brain surgery.

She has woken up and had an allergic reaction. I was strong during the surgery but now knowing that we will do it all again scares me. Good news they are 70% sure that it's not cancer but they won't know for sure for three days. Dave has been a rock through everything. I think I hit basket case tonight. It looks like it's going to be a very long night in the ICU. Thank you for everyone’s prayers. It means the world to me. We are just a step into a full journey.
