We are back in New York. This time our whole family is together. Treatment doesn’t start until Tuesday because of the holiday. All year Charlotte has been asking for fireworks, I’m so excited to show her the BIG firework show that Macy’s will be doing. I have a feeling, no other show will be the same! The NYPD will be BBQING and escorting the entire Ronald McDonald house for a front row view of the show!
Charlotte is doing wonderfully. She is full of energy, playing, eating, laughing. She has been around friends and lots of “new” cousins. She never dreads or asks “why” we have to go back to New York. I’m grateful for that!
This trip, her main concern is to see her friend Karma and give her the gift she picked. Unfortunately, Karma is in isolation due to C-diff and a staph infection (common with children receiving chemo) so it will be a little longer until she can deliver the gift. Please pray for Karma, right now, as you read this. Pray her CT will show stable results. Pray for an amazing plan to heal our sweet sweet friend.
Charlotte will have treatment Tues, Wed, and Friday with a spinal MRI on Thursday. We also meet with the radiologist to see her suggestions. Next week, Charlotte will have a PET scan.
I’m not really sure how long this trip will be. I’m hoping it’s a short one but we know there is a BIGGER plan.
Happy Indepence Day!
Please pray for:
- our friend Karma
- charlotte to respond well to treatment her upcoming scans
- calm nerves doing the MRI as she will not be sedated and its roughly 45 minutes
- more federal funding to help find cancer medicines made for children
- Charlottes miracle!!
Praising God for
- our family being together
- the generosity of the NYPD on this holiday away from home
- a personable oncologist who emails me during her vacation
- a safe trip to the city
- all of those who love and pray for our family
- another 4th of July with my sweet girl

So glad you’re all together for the holiday and front row seats for the show.. Bless the NYPD. Will be praying for Charlotte and for Karma! God bless you all & God bless America
Praying that Jesus will heal Karma as he did so long ago, when he healed Jairus’ daughter. He is able o do all things exceedingly and abundantly.
And for sweet Charlotte and your family, my prayers.
Safe holidays. Thank God for the NYPD.

Praying for your sweet Charlotte and her friend Karma. I love that you not summarize what you are praying for AND what you are praising God for. This is so great, and I plan to adopt it into my own daily prayer reflections.
