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.

Cookie Monster

Cookie Monster.

Our family friend, Audrey Wilmore, made this adorable cookie monster hat.  Erin was pretty scared of it for awhile, but just recently she has found a love for it and keeps asking me where Elmo is?  

Erin is really changing SO MUCH!  I cannot believe what a different child she is now that she is so healthy and living a normal life.  Sometimes I feel like we missed 1/2 of her 2 year old year.  She was so sick and living in a hospital room and her true personality was not able to shine.  It has been sad to see her grow up so much so quickly.  It's like she went from a toddler to a little girl in just the last month.  She is showing her independence more and really enjoying being around Cecily and Caleb.  This morning Caleb taught her how to play soccer and it just made me so happy to see our kids playing together. 

Thursday afternoon I will be taking Erin to Primary Children's Medical Center for her 1 month check-up.  She will have monthly blood tests for the next year.  We will always be praying that her Leukemia stays in remission.  Thank you for your prayers and all of the encouraging and thoughtful comments.
