Hello, My name is Tracey. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and mother of three. I have taken photos of my children and family members for years. My love for photography became a passion when I received my first 35mm SLR from my wonderful husband for my 1st Mothers Day. Nothing captures a moment in time like a photograph. It is my desire to capture images that reflect life's moments as you remember it.

Update on Thomas - Praise the Lord

PRAISE GOD! Our prayers have been answered!

Just got a call from the doctor. We have good news. Although we are not entirely out of the woods we are close!
Thomas' chest X-ray's are clear. His white blood counts are good. The pathologist said there was a significant amount of tissue in the aspiration biopsy and he examined it all and everything looks normal!!! He could find nothing wrong!
The Oncologist feels strongly that this is a lymphatic response - basically an over reaction of his lymph nodes! PRAISE GOD!!

We are to keep Thomas on his anit-biotics for the next two weeks. We are to monitor the swelling. We should see a significant reduction in swelling over the next two days. Should there be more swelling we will see him immediately for addition testing (CAT scan and biopsy). He has cancelled the appointment with the surgeon for next week!

A mother can not express the emotions she feels when one of her children are sick. I want to say thank-you for all of your prayers and words of encouragement my family has recieved from you all over the past couple of days. I have received literally hundreds of emails from friends from work, face book, and blog buddies. Words can not express how your support help me manage to get through the last couple of days.

Most of all Praise God! The Lord above has his hands on my little Thomas. I KNOW with all my heart that HE is the reason we have good results! HE heard all of your prayers and has answered them! Thank-you Jesus! All the glory should go to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!
