Time for school!

Wow summer went FAST! Yes I had my moments with the kids when I thought school would never be near but now that they go back next week I can't believe how fast the summer went by. Lee will be in the third grade, Charlotte the second, and Alex is starting pre-K. He will ride the school bus and go for a half day - sort of what kindergarten was like when I was a kid.

Alex's birthday is this weekend and he is turning 4. He LOVES star wars and is super excited to have his own party so he can uninvite his sister when she gets on his nerves. Some days they all get along so well and then others it is WWIII in my house.

I have my big cancer check and next MRI this September. Thinking only positive thoughts that these scans will be easy and free and clear of anything.

Unfortunately this summer my mom was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC). A lot of you might remember that she had breast cancer about 13 years ago so this was a big shock. IBC is not an easy diagnosis and she has a long tough road ahead of her to beat this disease. However she went to MD Anderson in TX for consultation with some of the best IBC doctors in the world and we are very positive that she will prevail. She has a great treatment plan and is able to do all the chemo near her house.
Keep my mom in your prayers!

Here are some pictures of the kids.

Hey Heather-

If you're mom comes back to MD Anderson and needs anything at all (airport pickup, company in the waiting room, etc.) please let me know, Houston is only a couple hours from Austin.

I treat cancer prevention/reversal with food not drugs, surgery, or radiation. This method is safer, less expensive, and more effective.
