This is the reason for starting the blogging world.
Peter's story in brief. He was a normal, happy, healthy, active little boy. No reason to think otherwise. Early in August I took him to a routine well baby check. The doctor found his liver to be enlarged and order all kinds of tests. The next day they determined it to be a large tumor in his liver and scheduled more testing. We were in shock and feared all kinds of scary things. I can't even explain the sadness that entered our lives, family, our home. We quickly asked for priesthood blessing, prayers, and a special family & ward fast. The next week brought more pain and questions, but also brought some tough answers. He was diagnosed with hepatoblastma. A very rare liver cancer that only attacks children three years and younger. He's really one-in-a-million. We are reassured by his expert doctors and a peace that comes from our knowledge and faith in or Savior, Jesus Christ, and his gospel .
Now it's been over a month and ending our second course of chemo. The miracle has already happened. The tumor responded well. The liver is back to normal size and after the 4Th course of chemo we should find out by ct scan what the next step will be. Peter is amazing. We are very hopeful of a good outcome. This is a hard battle to fight but every one's prayers has given us strength and Peter is a fighter.
We are so grateful for all the prayers offered on Peter's behalf. We are also very grateful for family support, and especially for Kathy & Doug who help out at every turn. What a team they are! Together with our family, friends, and ward members our burden has been lighted and it makes this trial easier to bear.
