Final Scan Update



Lucy and I had another full day at the Jude today.  She had her Renal ultrasound and got great news from that.  Her BUN and Creatinine levels were also better.  She had a PT evaluation and did really well.  She impressed me with how far she had come in the last 6 months.  Lucy did an exercise where she had to stand with her feet together and hold out her arms.  I know it sounds like no big deal but 6 months ago she could only hold it for 8 seconds before she lost her balance and she couldn't even do the exercise with her eyes closed.  Today she was able to do it for 18 seconds!!!

We met with Dr. W today to discuss Lucy's scans.  I am so thankful, relieved, grateful....  We got an "all clear" but we found out that the brain bleed is back.  We aren't sure what is going to happen with this but we will follow up with Dr. B next week.  I am praying that whatever we do involves NO surgery!

I am so glad to have this week behind us.  Sleeping at night is almost impossible the nights before Lucy's big scan.  Many, many nights over the past 2.5 years I have prayed myself to sleep.  Tuesday night was one of them.  I find myself begging with God every 3 months.  I know I shouldn't but as a mother it is only natural.  I know God knows my heart.  He knows my fear but He also knows my gratitude.  

Tonight I am full.  Full of gratitude and praise.

    So excited to hear your great news! Keep up the good work Lucy. Congrats on all the wonderful things you are doing with the foundation. I know LeBonher and St Jude appreciate all your hard work. They are both very special places and an asset to the citizens of Memphis and the Mid-South. I think sometimes us local folks forget how lucky we are to have them in our backyard! Continued prayers from the Bergerons in Southaven.

  6. Kate & Lucy, Congratulations on the Amazing News, The saying "Go Lucy Go" in my mind is now "Lucy is on the Go", and she is not going to stop, she is going to show all of us what a Strong, Courageous girl that she has been, was and will always be.

  9. My husband and I are donors to St.Judes. We received a calendar early this year from them. I was just looking back through it today. Wow! Lucy has come so far. PTL HE is indeed the Ultimate Healer! My children and I are faithful blog readers. Thank you for allowing us to see her progress! We pray for your family often.

  10. I have been reading Lucy's story from the beginning. Every single time I see a picture of her sweet face and hear positive reports, I'm taken back to the day I saw your post that the end was near. I remember saying out loud "no!!!!" And my heart broke in a million pieces for you. I so love that I was able to witness a miracle in your sweet Lucy.
    Thank you for sharing her with all of us.
