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.

Dancing for Rachel

Erin and our fellow AML friend Rachel (who is just a few rooms away) wanted to visit each other today, but they aren't allowed in each others rooms.  So, Erin decided to make a video of her dancing and we wanted to share it with Rachel and with all of you.  Erin says that she is a ballerina, just like Angelina Ballerina.

Erin's ANC is zero. 
Her white blood count is 0.4. 
She has 6 Monocytes. 
Her Platelets are 37
She will be receiving a blood transfusion today.

Erin watched this video with me and she said over and over, "Erin is pretty.  Erin is pretty."  Then she put her two Fisher Price Little People she was playing with up to the computer and showed them how pretty she was when she was dancing.


  1. I think it's awesome that Erin has such a high self-esteem! I'm praying that you get out of there in time for Christmas, with enough time to enjoy the pre-holidays as well.


  2. o my goodness that is the cutest video!! i ABSOLUTELY loved the part when she said "Erin's a beautiful princess!" ha that is totally true! she is a daughter of a King! boy she must have had amazing parents that have taught her well! I miss seeing you!!! i hope you are doing well

  3. I follow Rachels blog and happened onto yours. How awesome to be on your last round of chemo. My daughter Kristen received the most beautiful scarf from the France Luxe company while she was receiving chemo. They will send any girl or woman who has suffered hair loss due to illness. All you have to do is call the number on the web site and in a few weeks your daughter will receive a beautiful head wrap.

    It looks like you will be home in time for Christmas! hooray!

  4. what a cutie! i love her dancing!

    i chuckled at the part about not being allowed into eachother's rooms and getting yelled at by the nurses. :) we've had our share of getting chastised by the nurses for being out of the room when we weren't supposed to. the rules are so confusing! i still don't have them straight! :)
