Thank-you prayer warriors! “...no evidence of recurrent tumor.” Another clear scan, and we got to meet Dr. Lee who spent all day working on Jack back in 2012. Dr. Lee, Dr. Ellenbogen and Jack’s team are true rock stars!

Yesterday - six years since brain surgery.

Yesterday marks six years since Jack’s first brain surgery at Harborview (it was supposed to restrict blood flow to the tumor but it didn’t work), Tuesday will be six years since the resection at Seattle Children’s, and on Wednesday, SuperJack turns 11!
Please enjoy this recent video of our boy putting the hose away. Also please appreciate that you can’t possibly properly store the hose unless you lift it over your head and duck down several times during the process. 😂
His next MRI and meeting with his team is May 23rd. Please join us in prayer that he is six years tumor free!!

Sometimes small things make all the difference. We were at Jack’s sister’s soccer game this afternoon, and Jack asked if he could run around the track. We were remembering back to when he was in the hospital and we were pondering if he would ever walk again. There he was ... running around the field. Blessings come in all forms. Love you son. You are my hero.❤️ Daddy

Prayer Warriors - behold, the fruits of your praying labor: not only can SuperJack run again; he is FAST!! Proof - his recent double ⚾️ ⚾️ ⚾️
His 5-year MRI is coming up on Wednesday (May 24). Of course we are expecting good news, but could you please pray for "boring" again? Scan is at 10:15, meeting with his neurosurgery/oncology team is at 2:30. A day of anxiety for us, but a fun day in Seattle for Jack. He has no fear of going - he looks forward to it. Skip school! SCH cafeteria food!! Mom and dad to himself!! Now that he's familiar with U Village, froyo at Menchies!! I don't say no much on MRI days. It's the life, baby. 😊
We so appreciate your faithful prayers, and we will keep you posted on Wednesday. Thank you!

Happy Snow Day Prayer Warriors! ❄️❄️❄️
First off, GOD BLESS THE THERAPISTS at Children's Therapy Unit in Puyallup. As you all know, when Jack first started at CTU he wasn't safe to walk without adults on either side and had to mostly crawl to get places. PT has worked with him nonstop for almost 5 years; the progress is amazing, and more than we even dared to hope for. Thank you David and Brenna and Melissa!!
So now our SuperJack is all hooked up to this awesome machine that retrains his "toe lift" muscles to trigger on the right with the push of a button (I have to follow him around and push it every time his muscle should be activating. Which is harder than it seems, because he thinks it's hysterical to try and out-pace me. While he's literally connected to me with wires. Funny kid). Anyway, cute as his little limp is, maybe he'll be able to walk without it someday!

Jack tested for his green belt today and are proud of how much he has achieved. His kicks aren't super high, and his right side isn't as strong, but this kid - keeps on going and doesn't give up as you can see from the longer video. Your mommy and me are so proud of you!!❤❤❤

Well, Jack's head is five teeth lighter now. The surgery went very well. One root broke and they had to get it, but other than that it was quick with no surprises. He is now recovering (after a shake) playing Nintendo Mario Bros! Thanks for your prayers as we continue on our amazing journey with Jack. God Bless. 😊🙏🏻

Eyes yesterday were the same - still has (and likely will have) the 50% vision loss on the right side of both eyes. Good news - the vision he does have is perfect! Today we are at a pre-consult with the oral surgeon to prepare for a big five-tooth extraction tomorrow (Wednesday!) Love this boy!!!!❤️❤️❤️ Thanks for prayers tomorrow!
