This should be everyday life of kids. These pictures were taken at Ethan's (grandson) birthday party... he and Savvy just having fun sharing cup cakes & belly laughs. As they should!!!

Thank you prayer warriors!! Savvy’s scan results are in. Her brain is still completely clear, and her spine is stable. The few spots that are left in her lower spine are basically unchanged from last time, which means that the meds she’s been taking are working to keep her tumors from growing or spreading any.
The plan is to keep her on these same meds for the next several months and check again. Luckily she hasn’t had any bad side effects from them (even though they are technically a form of chemo), and her hair has been able to grow back in!! She is so excited that we are finally able to put it up in a baby ponytail.
And in other great news - her doctor has given the go-ahead to get her port removed!! This means she will no longer need to get it accessed monthly (which involves them poking a gnarly-looking needle in her chest to attach tubes every time), and she will no longer have a foreign object in her body that could cause potential complications or infections. So exciting as this is one more step towards a normal childhood for her.
As always, she continues to smile and make the most out of life! She is and will always be my little superhero. #SavvyStrong #kickingcancersass
