On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

Pioneer Day Weekend

I cannot imagine how difficult a journey it must have been for those saints who traveled their way across this nation in search of refuge in the Salt Lake Valley so many years ago. They're unshakable faith, their inner strength, and their courage to continue is such an example to us all. They are an example to me.

Erin is having a difficult time. There are so many possibilities of what is bothering her, but we aren't sure what it is. She is struggling with sleep, eating, and her overall attitude to everything. I worked things out with her doctor so that tonight the nurses will not be waking her up to check her vital signs and she won't be hooked up to fluids so they should't have to change her diaper in the night. Hopefully she'll be able to sleep really soundly through the night. She's been such a sleep deprived two year old I hope that she'll be her old happy self again soon. Her ANC is still zero.


  1. I'm sorry it's rough. I sure hope that cutting back helped and made a difference in her sleep. We are also hoping that her ANC starts to rise soon.
