Finally an up-date

Life has been crazy for us and a lot has happened since I last posted anything part of the problem was I misplaced the cord for the camera so I couldn’t download pictures to post. So we have a lot of catching up to do.
Brynlee has been doing great and has been busy enjoying life again. It is so great to see her healthy and happy acting like a perfectly normal three year old.
Brynlee turned three on March 24th. To celebrate we had all the family over and Jeff’s sister Kris made Brynlee a princess cake with all the princesses on it of course. Brynlee loved it and all the wonderful gifts and attention she recieved on her special day.

We belong to an organization called HOPE KIDS. It’s a group for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. This group has all sorts of activities and fun things for us to do. They throw big birthday parties for all the hope kids and so here is a picture of Brynlee at the hope kids party. The party was at a skating slash bounce house, arcade type of place.

One thing that was really exciting was that Brynlee’s hair was actually getting long enough to need a trim. Aunt Kayce cut her hair to help it have more shape and style. It’s looking so cute!

Brynlee had a great Easter, she colored eggs and had an egg hunt and her favorite part….LOTS OF CANDY!

I just took Brynlee in for a check-up on Tuesday and they said everything is looking great. She will have another set of scans done in 6 weeks and if all looks good her appointments will be every 3 months for about a year and then they will stretch them out further and further apart. She will have to have an echo done on her heart once a year for the next 5 years, due to some of the chemo she received. Certain chemos can damage the heart. So they watch it to make sure there is no side effects. So she is looking great and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks again for all those who continue to remember Brynlee, she’s a special girl for sure.
