Pray for Grant

A NEW YEAR BEGINS - May 26, 2010

Posted by Melanie McTaggart on Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Well, we have made it a year! Grant was diagnosed on May 24 last year and one year ago today, Grant received his port, his first round of chemo, and my sister's baby boy, Luke, was born! What an emotional day it was for our family.

Today, Claire just had her last day of pre-school - EVER!!! My baby girl has gotten sooo big!! I could not be more proud of her.

Just a quick update, and then we are off to start our summer!

Grant is doing REALLY well still. He is very happy, and very rambunctious. I can't keep him still. For those of you that have 1-year olds that have just started to walk, you understand. He wants to take off, but still has those minor tumbles that I want to protect him from. He is getting mad at me now for hovering. I have to try to stop, but it is sooo hard. I am also proud to report that we have officially started his potty training! We have had a few accidents - sure - but so far so good. He has to have this mission completed by the time school starts in the fall!! PRAYERS!!! It is hard to train the little guy since he is still on a ton of IV fluids for a week of every month, but we are making progress. Grant now has a "Tinkle Tank" that we got from the hospital  - it is really a male urinal - and we have decorated. We keep it in the car for those emergencies!!

The Mother's Against Cancer Blood drive on Saturday was a huge success! Thank you to Tiffany who put it together and all the wonderful ladies who sat out in the heat and worked the drive! And a big thank you for all those that donated or at least tried! Our family is VERY thankful.

We are going to be placing another TEAM GRANT T-shirt order next Friday. If you missed out and would like to order one this time, please let us know what size you would like. We will be happy to order one for you. Again, they are $15.00! Thank you to all of you that have already ordered a shirt and are wearing it for TEAM GRANT!

Okay - The kids are upstairs screaming - in a good way! I have to go see what those monkeys are up to!

Have a great rest of the week!
