16 Months ago (to the day) we left on Carnival Cruise Lines, on the Carnival Cruise Splendor During our trip, our little girl complained of pain, had a high fever and stopped eating (how does one do that on a cruise ship?). When we came home, within days we found out that she had stage IV cancer. It shattered our world. Today we are leaving to go on the Carnival Breeze and swim with dolphins. I’ve talked for a while about small victories – this is so much more than that. Here is the photo of Angelina with our first towel animal – I promise to post tomorrow’s before we sail of our cell range. Thank so you much to everyone who has prayed, donated their time, their resources, and shared their love of our sweet baby girl. We promise to have lots of “success” photos when we get home!

So the news! No new growth, but the spots she had have shrunk (not sure if them shrinking means that those spots are still disease.) But we look at it as no new growth and old growth shrinking is overall good news!

Happy Birthday to our sweet baby girl. Our journey hasn’t been easy, but after everything we’ve been through it feels like nothing short of a miracle. Hoping for continued luck and health as we go for scans tomorrow. But till then- we party!

Long week of treatment means a relaxing weekend leading up to Angelina’s Birthday on Tuesday! What’s a great gift for a 5 year old girl who loves angry birds, Scooby Doo, mine craft and skylanders? I’m stumped. Was thinking a bicycle?
