Tomorrow Is A Big Day

Lucy and I spent 8 hours at St. Jude today. She had a wonderful day...amazing all the doctors and therapists along the way. She really has come so far in the past 2 years.

Tomorrow she has a full MRI (brain and spine). It will last about 2.5 hours total. To clear up any confusion, what she had before Thanksgiving was an emergency 2 minute head CT to rule out a shunt problem when she was so tired. We thank you in advance for your prayers tomorrow.

Tonight is the dreaded "night before scans." In the past you might have found one of us knee deep in a bottle of Xanax (joke). But tonight was different. After two long years we are learning to breathe. Tonight it was no TV, no iPads or iPods. Just us. A family.

God has carried us this far, we have faith He will continue to do so.

  9. Dearest Krull family,

    I don't comment often, if ever. I enjoy reading about your family and hate the struggles that you have been/will continue to go through. Lucy is a beautiful, bright and sweet little girl and such a blessing to everyone and I lift your whole family up to our Almighty God and pray for clean scans, healthy children (and parents) and that you will be able to embrace CHRISTmas and make many more memories. God bless your sweet family.

  11. It's been amazing reading what you have written these past two yrs. When I hear people complain about little things I want to tell them about you and what all have been going through. The scans are hard still for my sister and i. Both dealing with cancer. So haven't past that part yet. But we are doing good. Love you all. Will keep praying for Lucy. Mary and Martha
