A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

July 18

Max has completed his 5th found of chemo. I can't even describe to you how amazing this kid is. I ask him if he is a Big Brave Boy and he just smiles and says "Yup"!
We have a marathon day set up in Ann Arbor Tuesday. Appointments from 8am until 4 or 5. He will get a liver ultrasound, heart echo, pulmonology appt, cardiology appt, and a couple meetings with the liver transplant surgeons. After all that they will determine what the next step is and we will most likely be on the transplant list.  HOPEFULLY we won't have to go the transplant route but the docs want the option ready if he ends up needing it.
So many thoughts constantly running through my head...so hard to put into words. I am still attempting to be positive but it is hard to manage all the chaos at times.

"Max are you a BIG BRAVE BOY"?
"Yup Mama"
That will help me get through tonight.  =)


  1. Big Brave Boy!! What a little honey he is!! Keeping Max and all of you in our prayers!!

  2. Precious boy he is!!!! I love his response! A reminder for mom and dad...."For when I am weak, then I am strong..." 2 Cor. 12:10 He is there for you to rely on His strength, we can't do it on our own :)
    I will pray for His strength to be yours,
    Karen B.

  3. Praying for good news! Praying for all of you to stay strong! Praying for good health! Praying for you to remain positive! Just know that we all love you and are thinking about you all the time!
