Hello-
My name is Holli Isaminger-once Holli Lawson. I worked at Children's on Stem Cell. I know I meet you guys and Taylor. I DO remember you. I was close with Tina-Austin's Mom. I keep in touch with her through Caringbridge-I have recently lost my daughter. I am too a member of the caring bridge club. Taylor is soooooooooooo cute now! If I remember correctly- I was there during one of his stem cell treatments-Child Life Intern-Gosh that was so long ago-now I have just graduated from nursing school. He is darling-You must be so proud. I will pray for you and your family! God Bless you!

Hey Kim! This is Heather, Madison's Mom (Morgan Barnes Friend). Glad to hear all is well in the Watts family. I was going to tell you that I watch House and I couldn't believe the finale. It was awesome and really took me surprise. I don't know anyone who watches it so I was glad to see your update. Anyway, sorry to ramble on! Madison sends her love to Taylor.

Hi Taylor This is Karissa's mom Laurie. Cool site. Where does your mother find the time to update everyday? I'm glad you had a great time at camp. Karissa is saying she is going to week long camp too. We'll see. I'm not sure we will be at camp as a family again this year because in Sept. we will be at the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Ride for Life. It's a motorcycle ride from Pelham to the Barber Motor Sports Place. Go to pbtf.org and click on What happened in Birmingham and you will see Karissa's picture. I talked to Alan about donating blood in June and he said he will try to make it. The army has provided him with an apartment in Hoover so he is close. E-mail us to keep in touch. I updated Karissa's site and I'm fixing to edit to add some more. Check it out.

HAHA I know ALL ABOUT bug juice! In fact, had I known you all were going on Sunday, we would have gone then instead of Saturday! PLUS, I could have told you about that gas station. Yep, I have to get Colette the gatorade, but it is so heavy, she doesn't drink much.
I think we have done enough zoo for a few months. Except for the butterflies. I think she would be happy just to go there and then leave.
Looks like we might be here for your blood drive after all. I will be in touch!

I need to come out there and practice with you guys...I have a softball tournament next weekend in Montgomery. Anyways, you are always in our prayers. Keep up the good work and have a Happy Easter.

The one that shocked me was Ashleigh passing. I have been following her story since yours. She was so pretty and so full of life. Cam was devasting too, I have also been following his story since Taylor. I will really miss reading the updates on these two special kids, but I will check in on the families often. Ashleigh's Aunt Angie wrote the most wonderful updates on her page...AND CAM'S MOM...SHE SHOULD WRITE A BOOK. She is the angel....On a brighter note, NOBODY CAN WRITE UPDATES TO MATCH YOURS!!!!!!!! You need to write a book too on Taylor's journey...it would be a best seller...you know one of those books where you read a chapter....AND YOU JUST CAN'T WAIT TO GET TO THE NEXT ONE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS! I'd buy one! Ya'll take care and I will check on these two boys tomorrow! Love, Cathi

Good morning Taylor and Family,

I can't believe baseball season is already here! Kadin loves to go to baseball games. The past two years, we have drove to Houston, Texas, to watch the Astros play. Kadin loves it when the train moves and whistles after every homerun! Well, keep up the good work and the next time your mom goes shopping, tell her I could use some new clothes too!! :-) Good luck with your baseball season.

As I told Tina in her guestbook....THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT AT YOUR HOUSE! I bet you love it that way too....always something to do, somewhere to go or somebody's doing something. I have laughed at your last two entries until I had the tears flowing. Yall are certainly entertaining. You do need to write a book on this adventure, it would be a best seller! I just cannot imagine the life you lead with these 2 characters! They keep yall on your toes 24/7...my girls are so laid back (one is not living at home), but the 15 year old, I never even know she's here until she calls me to the phone or she comes out to eat. Guess you'll be spending lots of time at the ballfields this summer...soon Logan will be playing T-Ball and yall may just have to set up a tent and camp there. You will never be at home when that happens. I always look forward to the day's events when I come online to read your journal. You 2 be good tomorrow and I will check in to see what exciting is going on in the Watts house tomorrow! Love, Cathi

You are a very brave boy. I'm glad to hear the surgery went well and that there were no complications. You and Kadin's mom have something in common...you both like grill cheese sandwiches. She would eat one everyday, if I'd let her! :-) We will be praying for your recovery.

I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU GUYS TO GET HOME! Way to go Taylor! I knew you'd do just fine!! I agree, I don't see how they work in a noisy place...or a place they could get run over in...! I just knew that's what you were going to say about him on the bike. I love what Logan was saying about what's Bubba got? They are so curious about EVERYTHING at his age. Is he into the WHY's about everything? They will ask WHY 2000 times a day.....those days are over for me! My oldest will be 22 next month and my baby just turned 15 and is driving. My, I'm getting old! I know those boys have ya'll on your p's and q'a at all times...and I know you wouldn't have it any other way. Glad to hear from you and that all went well.....another standing ovation for the little trooper! Taylor, take care of that nose tonight...and please don't let Logan punch you anytime soon....Love ya! Cathi

Tell your mom thanks for telling everyone about my little hero, Kadin. So many of your friends and family have signed Kadin's guestbook to let us know that they were praying for us. Thanks again for all of your prayers, thoughts and encouraging words.

OH LORD KIM!!!!! I AM LOL AT YOUR LAST UPDATES!!!!!!! That is the reason God didn't give me boys...I wouldn't know what in the world to do with them! I will probably have all male grandchildren now for saying that. I can just imagine what you go through everyday...I know Logan is into everything and you can't even turn your back without wondering what he's into or better yet...WHERE IS HE! I love reading your updates...they make my day...Taylor and Logan, keep mom and dad on their toes! Glad to hear all is well with all of you and that everyday is pretty "normal" around your house! Take care and I will check in later to see what's going on up there! Love, Cathi

Hey Taylor,

Thanks for taking the time to visit Kadin's site. We understood exactly what you were talking about. Kadin loves all of his nurses and doctors up here on the 6th floor as well as 4 tower. Kadin loves Power Rangers, too. His favorite is the DinoThunder series and the blue Ranger is his favorite Ranger. He tells me that I'm the Red Ranger.

Emily and I just admire the strenght, courage and determination of all of you kids fighting these terrible childhood cancers. Tell you parents thanks for all the encouraging words. You guys are always in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks again.

Thank you all so much for the encouraging words through-out Kadin's relapse. I can tell you that it is a word that we were less prepared to hear. It caught us so off guard. Kadin has done so well and we know it comes from all the love, prayers, and support from all of our friends and family. This journey we travel together makes us family, though we have never met. We have read parts of Taylor's journal and his history. His road to diagnosis seemed agonizing. Both times Kadin's diagnosis came, it was by chance...Our good fortune(if it can be called that) has made Kadin's journey easier than most. You are an amazing family. An inspiration to all of us that fight everyday the illness that no matter how much we read and how closely we listen, we will never understand.

May God continue to bless your beautiful family and that amazing little guy. We too, as hard as it is to believe, have neuroblastoma in the family. Kadin's cousin was diagnosed with stage-2 recently. Though there is no connection between Kadin's leukemia and Jenna's neuroblastoma, it still makes you scratch your head a little...No matter though. The cancers may be as different as night and day from a clinical point of view, but it's effects on us as parents are still the same! I have gone on long enough! Thank you again. We will continue to check on Taylor and pray for him and your family.

The Gazzaway's

To be honest, I haven't really even had a chance to comprehend that Morgan has scans right around the corner. When I think about it, it almost gives me an anxiety attack. So I just occupy my thought with all the other things that are going on in our house. We are ready for things to be easy for Morgan -- will that ever happen?

Kim - I was cracking up at your entry about "GCD"! Girl, you don't have that! You have "Spent the last 3-4 years working to keep my child healthy & alive" disorder!! They train us to watch for ANY little symptom, and we make it worse by finding things to report at clinic! You are a good mom who pays attention to her children, that's about as weird as it gets! LOL

Colette has learned that I freak when she says her belly hurts, so she uses that when she doesn't want to do whatever it is (dressing change, take meds). For about a week post=transplant discharge, I was taking her back to stem cell for xrays, but conniption fits don't show up on film! But I was SURE there was something majorly wrong! HAHA - joke's on mom!

Don't worry about what tomorrow brings, just worry about today!

Dear Taylor,

Thanks for your nice notes. I am glad you are doing well. I remember meeting you so very long ago when we were just babies and were in diapers up on 4 tower. It seems like yesterday, yet an eternity. We have been through so much. Now, I am battling this again because I relapsed. It stinks, but we'll get through. We are praying for your continued good health. Thanks for your nice notes. Maybe we'll see each other in clinic reallly soon.
Sincerely,

Hi Kim, Taylor and Logan! I was part of the family that met you on the side of the road. What a way to meet two wonderful boys! They both were so brave! I know they thought the fire truck and police cars were cool. I know Jesus definitely took the wheel (for you and me) because you cannot explain or tell me that the car ended up where it did by 'chance.' The song played afterwards and got chills (and tears!). I hope you have (had) a great time with Mickey and Minnie. I pray God continues to watch over your entire family. Taylor, I wear your bracelet everyday and when I can't because I'm in uniform, I'll put it on my desk. God's riches blessings!

Glad to read that you are all okay. We had a fender bender when Lyndie was a few weeks old. She was the only kid in the car with us. I was so scared I cried, even though she slept through the whole thing. Your story gave me chills and reminds me that God is in control.

He went to the doctor today and got some good ole medicine (antibiotic). His birthday is Saturday and he is hoping to be all better by then. I cannot wait to see you at school in about a week and I want you to tell me all about your trip to Disney World! Be sweet and be a "big boy"! Love you!!

She gives LOTS of good presents! Colette was walking in her dancing shoes today. I hope your snot goes away. I want you to come visit Colette one day soon!

Be good = you know who is watching! Colette is being good so Santa can come see her at the hospital.

Dear Watts family, I'M BACK! I haven't really been gone, I have been checking in frequently, but haven't signed in. MIL had major surgery and I have been dealing with her, along with still trying to settle into a new house. I am so glad that Taylor is just being a normal little boy. I have read so much sadness on these sites, it is just heartbreaking. The thought of Madison's family dealing with childhood cancer and then to loose their home while they were at the hospital is just UNREAL! I guess it was a blessing though, at least no one was in the house. Just makes you wonder how much more people can take. Now I have been reading about Lenzie and now Torie is not feeling good. I know their poor mother is thinking the worst. I keep checking for an update on Torie when I check in on Lenzie. I am shocked by all of the new cases of this disease and leukemia. Yall just keep on keepin on up there and let those boys be boys! That's easy for me to say to you since I have 2 girls.....!!! Taylor, you keep up the great work of fighting this monster off, your doing a great job! Ya'll take care!

She has horrible croup and came home with Prednisone and Atuss. Kim, I have remembered about the Thomas Train cake pan and will bring it to you Wednesday at school.

Just wanted to say I enjoyed today at school and it made me feel good when I saw your journaling from today and put in there that you had a new teacher and she was great. I really felt I was too hard on the kids, but they have to learn the hard way huh? I am thankful to God for taking care of you guys since 2002 through all the storm. God has a plan for us all - hey who would have thought I would be helping you teach 4 year olds?? (Phillipians 4:13) I am thankful for the job and the friendship we are already making.

Hi Taylor and Kim,
I am so glad you found Lenzie's website. It is nice to have someone who knows exactly what you are going through. It looks like you've had a rough time to. I don't know why it takes them so long to diagnose neuroblastoma. I am glad to read that Taylor is off treatments and is doing so well. He is such a handsome little boy. So is his brother. All you need now is a little girl. We still have a long road ahead of us. Lenzie has stage 2B ganglioneuroblastoma. She has had two treatments and has eleven more to go. Right now we go to clinic every four weeks for chemo and IVIG. She is getting better. I notice an improvement in her everyday. I know we will come through this and everything will be fine. I am praying for you and your family. Email me if you every need anything. ronnieb21@charter.net I might email you with some questions every now and then. If thats okay. Lenzie's website is www.caringbridge.org/visit/lenziebutland

So, take a deep breath and know that when it comes to "little" boys, you are not alone! .... give Taylor a big hug from us in Texas - hope you had a Happy Halloween - enjoy every minute of those precious little ones.....

Hi Guys!
Please know that we are thinking of you and saying prayers during scan time. Morgan undergoes them again at the beginning of November. Life is so stressful around here anyway that I have not really even had a chance to get worried about them yet. Morgan is having a lot of social problems at school and I feel like my heart is breaking. Cancer has damaged her in so many ways that I never thought possible. I feel like no one understands because they don't. I hate going to NY, but it sure is nice to be there with lots of other NB families who understand exactly what this life is like.
On a brighter note, she is planning on being Wonder Woman for Halloween. That is fitting since she is a walking miracle. Holden is going to be Batman and Lyndie is going against the Superhero format to be a ladybug.
We will be looking for great test results in the coming days.

Hi Guys!
I think having Taylor start play therapy is a pretty good idea. Morgan is also spoiled rotten (as you can imagine). Plus, she is having some trouble adjusting to not being on center stage anymore and having to share the spotlight with a new baby. She started counseling (play therapy) a few weeks ago. We are now dealing with so many post-therapy issues. Of course, we are thankful that Morgan is doing so well but anxiously awaiting a time when things are totally normal for her. By normal, I guess I mean when she does not have quite so many differences because there is no going back to the way it was before we heard the word "neuroblastoma".

Hello Kim,
This is Jordan Slater's mom. We were next to you at the bowling alley a couple of years ago,(Wow!Seems like yesterday,my timing is still a little off.)and often saw you in clinic.
However,I am so happy to hear your family is doing so well! You have a beautiful family. You are a strong woman. And you know I always give Jim "kudos". He was one of the few mean that would come to the weekly parent support group meetings on 4 tower. So I guess what I am trying to say is your are Wonder Woman and he is Super Man! What a great match!Take Care Still Praying and Thinking of you and your family.

Hi Tayor and family

Our hearts goes out to you. Our grandson Elgin-Alexander Fraser also has Neurblastoma. Elgin is 17 months old.

We have been blessed with so many prayers from people we don't even know and it seems these prayers have been answered at least for now. Elgin is 98% cancer free.

We will include you in our prayers. We wish you well.

I "borrowed" this from the website of Dylan Hartung,a little boy you may have read about in People magazine. He is from Australia and is at SK in NYC battling neuroblastoma.
The Chosen Mother
By Erma Bombeck
Most women become a mother by accident, some by choice
and a few by habit. Did you ever wonder how mother's of
children with life threatening illnesses are chosen?

Somehow, I visualize God hovering over earth
selecting His instruments for propagation with great care and
deliberation. As He observes, He instructs His angels
to make notes in a giant ledger.......

"Armstrong, Beth, son, patron saint Matthew"
Forrest, Marjorie, daughter, patron saint Cecilia"
Rutledge, Carrie, twins, patron saint Gerard."

Finally, He passes a name to an angel and says, "Give
her a child with cancer." The angel is curious. "Why this
one, God? She's so happy."

"Exactly," smiles God, "Could I give a child with cancer
a mother who does not know laughter? That would be cruel."

"But, does she have patience?" asks the angel,

"I don't want her to have too much patience or she will
drown in a sea of self-pity and despair. Once the shock and
resentment wears off, she will handle it."

"I watched her today," said God. "She has that feeling
of self-independence that is so rare and necessary in a mother.
You see, the child I'm going to give her has it's own world.
She has to make it live in her world and that's not going to be easy."

"But Lord, I don't think she believes in you," said the angel.
"No matter, I can fix that. This one is perfect. She has just
enough selfishness."

The angel gasps, "Selfishness? Is that a virtue?"

God nods. "If she can't separate herself from the child
occasionally, she'll never survive. Yes, here is the woman I will bless
with a child less than perfect. She doesn't realize it yet,
but she is to be envied. She will never take anything her child does for
granted. She will never consider a single step
ordinary. I will permit her to see clearly the things I see....ignorance,
cruelty, prejudice....and allow her to rise above them."

"And what about her patron saint" asks the angel, his pen poised in mid-air.

God smiles and says..."A mirror will suffice."

Hi I was wondering where I can order the Fight Neuroblastoma Bracelet from. I am Katie's mother, she just celebrated her third year in remission. I would love to have one as we all know how hard a fight it is. Glad to see that Taylor is doing great.
Please either email me with the information lisa.fuller@international.gc.ca or send a message through Katie's website and if you'd like I can put the information for others to see on her website. I would like more than one as well..So I can give to family and friends!
Thanks A Bunch

May God continue to be with you and your Taylor. Our son too is fighting neuroblastoma. Diagnosed Jan 2004, age 15 years. Remission (?) for 4 months, rediagnosed April 05. Sep 1 05,said to be in remission, but this has taken a big toll. He needs some work to get him back on his feet and on to a normal life as best it can be, as he still is going to continue chemo. Would be interested in the actual drugs used to treat Taylor, as I see many out there for the cancer but if course only can identify with those used on Chris. There was an article in a news paper from back east, a 14 year old kid with neuroblastoma, the focus was on it being an orphan disease and no pharmaceuticals want to pick it up as there isn"t enough $$ in it. Said the last drug to make the standard list was in about 1974.
New research continues as you know, and trials are being offered. I thank God for the researches. The drugs don't always work, but at least they are dedicated to keep on looking.
Taylor is a handsome little guy. Thank you for your site and sharing his story. Much had a similar ring.Carol Jensen

I thought my dear daughter was the only child who ever got an attitude about the smallest things. Getting her up and ready for school has been an adventure. I also thought I was the only one who would fold a load of clothes and then not have time to move them off of the dining room table. I am glad we don't use our dining room.
When Holden turned 3, I remember looking at him and thinking that he was still such a baby and Morgan had to be older than that when she was diagnosed. Now I look at him and think, Wow! When Morgan was his age she had already racked up a million frequent flyer miles going back and forth to NY to do antibodies. I guess cancer kids have to grow up fast in some respects. Or perhaps, maybe second children always seem more like babies to their mommies. Who knows!
Glad to read that you guys survived the storm with just some minor damage.

Hi my friend,
I have not emailed lately but I check on you and the guys often. Not a day goes by that I don not think of you and lift you in prayer.

I laughed when I read about the boys wrestling. Meagan and Austin used to get into those matches and it would be awful. I miss that sibling rivelry but smile when I read about yours.

I will always pray for Taylor to stay in remission. You have all fought an incredible fight. The journey has been long but look at the outcome. God is good.

I love you my friend.

We have not signed the guestbook in awhile, but we are checking on your guys frequently. Life has been kind crazy around here with the new baby. Lyndie is sleeping (finally) and Morgan and Holden are on the couch quietly watching TV so I thought I would take the opportunity to let you guys know we are thinking of you.
Kim and Jim, Happy Anniversary! I hope you get to do something fun. Our anniversary came and went on July 26 with barely anyone noticing. But, we had a week old baby and were busy celebrating Morgan's birthday so I certainly was not expecting much.
We hope Logan starts feeling better soon. I know your anxiety. I can't tell you how many times I have already pressed on Lyndie's belly feeling for things.
As you can imagine, Morgan has a cruddy cold too. That should not surprise you since my kids are always sick in sync with yours. Holden is just now beginning to get it. I am hoping that Lyndie will avoid it.

I have been talking with Shaina about Taylor and how she and him were going through the same thing about the same time. She talks about her scars all the time. She asks me a alot of questions about why she had cancer, and why she had to go through chemotherapy. I believe with all my heart that it was to make all of us stronger in our faith. I just love you guys. Ya'll are so sweet, and Taylor is so beautiful. I hope that you will call me sometime and us plan a play date. Or something for just us parents.

This probably will not surprise you, but Morgan has been dealing with the green gunk for a few days. Are these kids on the same wavelength or what? How do they spread things to each other when they are several states away from each other?!? Morgan finally admitted that her ear hurt so we took her in to get some amoxicillian for an ear infection. That has helped slow down the snot factory a bit.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi, gang!
I guess you are wondering what happend to all of my great Caringbridge updates, huh? Things certainly change when you are not confined to that room 24 hours a day! Not hardly time to wash my hair now that we are home. Thanks for continuing to check on us. I'll try and update soon. We've got a big announcement coming, so keep watching. Also, if you haven't already, check our other web site at www.davishartsell.com. It has lots of pictures on it, including some from stem cell discharge. We are going to meet with Dr. Russo tomorrow to get set up for radiation. I think I remember from reading your journal that you had some issues with radiation????? I'll keep you posted.

Take care,
The Hartsell Family

Hey Watts Family!
Thanks so much for your words of encouragement. Being done with treatment is both exciting and scary. Just so you know, the port removal was a breeze. Morgan recovered quickly and was up and dancing in no time (although she did need some Tylenol). It was so nice to read the words on your update that it was an "average" day. I pray that both of our families have nothing but average days from here on out. Take care and God bless.

Hello Watts' Family!! I'm so glad things are back to normal (whatever normal is!!). I love reading your entries. Makes me feel like I'm right there with y'all. I can just see Taylor & Logan growing & learing right there on the screen. I told Guh the other day that I'll be happy to work at the blood drive. Any time is fine. Just let me know when, where, & how long, OK?? Talk to ya later!!

So the blood drive will be the 27th instead of the 28th? Sign me up from about 3:30 until.... That will give me time to get there from school.
ANything else I can do?

We also enjoyed meeting your Mom and really appreciate the cool things that you picked out for Davis. When he gets better, he will really enjoy playing with them!

I am absolutely blown away that 2 years have passed already!! I'm so excited things are going better now. Both boys are eating, playing, and doing "normal" stuff. I'm sure Taylor's other tests will be great, too.
I meant to contact you earlier about an NB magnet (or 2,3,4) and now I'll need to get a bracelet, too. Am meeting Guh for lunch on Wed. and will talk to her about it then. Again, I'm thankful Taylor's tests have been so great and will keep you all on my prayer list. hugs & kisses!!

Hi, Watts Family! Thanks for checking on us. I really appreciate your words of encouragement. They told us the worst would last about 2 to 3 days, but we are on day 11!!! Please let this be over soon. We haven't made a decision on the antibody issue just yet, but we will have to soon. So many things going on right now, and not enough of us to go around. Please continue to check on us and keep those prayers and words of encouragement coming. Taylor is our inspiration that there is life after this.

Mommy can't kill the wasp because she's more afraid than Taylor. A day or two ago Taylor was running from a wasp. Kim was trying to calm him and tell him it was Ok it wouldn't hurt him; then... the wasp flew around her. She ran faster than Taylor and squeeled. It was sooo funny!

We hope you all had a great Easter. Holden was a big chocolate milk drinker too. He still loves it, but occasionally he will take other things now. He even went through a phase where he would take my chocolate Slimfast out of the fridge and cry until I gave him some. The pediatrician said it was okay, so I would allow him to have one can a day. Kids can be so strange. Take care and God bless.

Praying hard for Taylor and for all of you. I'm so sorry you're having to deal w/this and am anxiously looking for a positive update. The fear will probably always be there, I guess. I found a swollen node on Ross's neck yesterday and totally freaked. Meredith calmed me down and I know it's just related to his nasty cold he's had. Anyway, just wanted you to know I'm praying for you!

Hi Guys,
I'm so sorry you have to go through this unknown and worrisome time--it is so hard waiting for results.
However, let me just say that I really believe you will get good news that is not cancer. I think it is just too coincidental that the spot was there before(and the MIBG was negative then too) and I know that lung crud and inflammation can hold on for so long.
Please know I will keep Taylor in my prayers and I will look forward to hearing from you SOON that it is NOT at all cancer related!
Love and Prayers,

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for what he has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

We are expecting flurries way down here tomorrow...my Katie is so excited! Better go finish up the potato salad for the week end......boys, be good, santa is watching!

Hi to the Watts' Family! Just wanted to say hello since it has been a while. I still keep up with things thru the website or Guh. I almost had lunch with you guys a week or so ago, but again, I didn't make it. I got so tickled about the "pants" thing a few days ago. It is a good thing that it happened AFTER the line leader duties were complete :o) How 'Bout those ... you know...I hate to say it, but those ... Tigers! (of course, at least they are winning!!) I'm guessing y'all were at the game. I'll bet that was exciting, wasn't it?? There was sure a lot of hype about it beforehand. They did good!! Well, take care of each other.

We had a ball at the movie. Bob just couldn't get over how good he was at the movie. Thanks for letting us take him.

Congratulations on your successes in battling Taylor's cancer. I know how much of a struggle this disease is and what a wonderful, miraculous achievement it is to be winning the battle. I know how much your family and your little man have been through in this battle. My son, Andrew Phillip Parent was born with neuroblastoma on Feb. 3, 2004. He was treated at St. Jude and underwent 3 rounds of chemotherapy, following a tumor resection at 9 days old. My sweet angel fought a great fight for 3 months, but he passed away on May 2, 2004. His cancer metastasized to his brain and spinal cord, only none of his four oncologists realized this until 2 1/2 days before he passed away. It was very aggressive, and he didn't stand a chance. I truly hope that this news isn't inappropriate for me to share with you, as I'm sure that you have come face to face with children who did not survive this disease. Cancer is such an aggressive disease, and it is attacking our children. I will be starting a website for Andrew, too, but I haven't started it yet. If you would like to see a picture of Andrew and sign his guest book, our local newspaper has it on their website: 2theadvocate.com. It is under the obituaries and then click on "visit a guest book" (or something like that)and enter his name. Andrew is my first and only child, and he is so greatly missed. I'm so happy to read of your wonderful news. I know that you count your blessings every second of the day, as I would gladly give my life to have spared my precious child. Take care! I would love to hear from you sometime.

Take care of your finger and don't let it get infected. If it does, you will have to take medicine. And, we can not believe how unfair your mommy is being to you. She is teaching all those other children and not you.
If Taylor is like my kids, he will do much better for others. I bring out the worst in both of them.
Morgan is still coughing and has a cold. I am coughing now too which was a great relief to me. You would think that this close to scans I would not worry, but I do. Her first day of kindergarten was great. I cried but she did not.
Take care and God bless.

Kim,
This is a note for those in the Birminham area. Bailey, who is 2 1/2 and was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, is in desperate need of platelets. If you are B+ and CMV negative they could sure use your help. Of course, they'd probably love to have ANY platelets and blood.
Glad Taylor is no longer having to send out such requests. God is good.

Mc Calla, al USA - Monday, August 2, 2004 7:45 AM CDT
I shuttered when I read this update. It probably means that Morgan will be headed to the emergency room before too much longer. She is already coughing. Thanks a lot Taylor! :>)
Actually, I am very thankful that it turned out to be a simple viral infection and you guys did not have to go inpatient. That would just be no fun at all.
We are home from another great trip to NY. I think that place gets more wonderful everytime I go (that is sarcasm). But, we have gotten good news so far on the MIGB and CT scan and are now just waiting for bone marrows. Life is actually pretty good here.
We found out that Morgan is still HAMA negative so that means another cycle of antibodies is coming up for us in September. I am so looking forward to another two week stay in New York (that is sarcasm too).
We hope that you all have a great weekend. Take care and God bless.

He was so sick the last time I saw him at the cancer center. I was at CH's today visiting on the STU... brought back lots of memories of reading your website.
Glad you all had such a wonderful, informative conference. Be sure to post when you know if the magic number of 1000 is reached for the tags. Love and prayers, Ms. Nena

I droped by yesterday afternoon to see the boys and take them their surprises from my trip. Logan was asleep and Guh and Taylor were playing with the word up game, spelling out everyone's names...such a smartie! Logan woke up in a great mood and I got to feed him and play a little before I left. Don't be surprised if you come home to him covered in Spiderman bandaids...
Have a great trip and soak up all the info and inspiration you can!

Hello! I am so glad to hear all the good news and that you don't have to go back until Sept! Yes, that is a long time, BUT also, it shows you exactly how far Taylor has come with his treatments. All of the fast pacing that you have had to endure, is finally coming to an end......you can live that so called "normal" life I keep referring to! With the busy lives yall lead, I doubt seriously that you will be bored! I sometimes wish I had as much to do as you do, but then again.....I like my life exactly as it is! Taylor I am so proud of you for all that you have been through. Most adults couldn't have done all that you have. It will all be worth it now, you are a healthy little man again and we will continue to pray that you stay that way. Be good today and have tons of fun! Love you! Cathi

We just got back from New York so we wanted to check in with you and let you know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. We enjoyed seeing you, but we would have enjoyed it more if we would have been sitting somewhere below the Mason Dixon line and sipping on some sweet tea. Your state or mine, it would not have mattered to me.

It was a long two weeks and a very adventurous flight home (the details are all on Morgan's page). We are very thankful to be home and plan on truly enjoying our time at home together. I am sure you all understand what I am talking about. Take care and God bless.

Hello! I found Taylor's website by visiting babycenter. I am jbcmom. My daughter was diagnosed with ALL in February of this year. We would like to go to Florida for our wish trip too. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind emailing me with more details from your trip. I read all of your journal entries, and it sounds fantastic. I was wondering specifically what all the Make A Wish foundation pays for and provides.
On a side note - I am very glad that Taylor's fever broke, and that he is feeling better!!

MIssed going to the show with you. Since you'll be gone next week, we'll try for the next one, okay? Or, we might just wrangle Uncle Bob into going to see Shrek 2 again one night before you go since he hasn't seen it.
I went to three Walmarts yesterday and no Shrek big boy britches in 2T/3T. They may only start at 4T. But I did get Buzz, Spidey, and Sponge Bob (no jokes about absorbing the "accidents";)!)
I'll get these to you as soon as possible. We were at work til 6:30 last night...since you couldn't go to the movies I went on to work. Oh well.
Love to you and Logan too.

Hi Guys,
It looks like we will be checking into the RM House on the same day. But, we have to stay a lot longer than you do.
I hope the potty training is going well for Taylor. If you figure out a way to transfer the concept to wearing pants, please let me know. I refuse to take my son out in public naked and he refuses to stop peeing in his pants.
We live about 2 and a half hours from Asheville. We would love to try to get together with you guys in September (if we are not in NY). If Morgan does not get HAMA on this round, then we will be flying to NY again on Labor Day. Oh well, we shall see what happens.
You know that we are praying for good test results.

Take care and God bless.

We were so happy to read that Taylor had a good day at school. When Morgan went back to preschool for the first time, I sat in the car and cried because I was happy about how far she had come but so sad about what she had been through. I am sure you understand exactly what I am talking about. And now, in a few short months she will be headed to kindergarten. That will be another day to praise God!
You guys are never far from our thoughts and we keep you in our prayers. We are looking forward to seeing you in NY. I just wish that we did not have to stay for two weeks.
Take care and God bless.

Taylor, know that I am thinking of you tomorrow...I know all will go well with the surgery and you will look great when it's all over with. Tell your mom and dad that I am thinking of them too! My house FINALLY has been started and I am fixing to start a summer job with the school, so I am really busy right now. I do check the site everyday eventhough I may not have time to sign in each day. Take care and have a wonderful day tomorrow...lots of prayers and thoughts coming your way!

Dear Taylor,
What a great time I had with you at the movies...you were the perfect date. Uncle Bob is a bit jealous that he had to miss it after it was his idea! I was also proud of your behavior at the movie. No one would have ever guessed it was your first time. I am making a date with you now to go and see SpongeBob, okay?
Love you bunches!!!

You're being nice.... graduating class of 200 at BJCC... you have to be talking about SVHS. My son was in that graduating class and I would say that there were at least one third of the kids that had their own personal cheering section. And a couple of kids that found it necessary to dance on stage. I talked to someone afterwards (actually I was griping) and their comment (since they are always nice) was that there are just different cultures..... ok, I'll buy that. So, since I have one more to graduate, I vote that we hold two seperate ceremonies.... you're choice.... sign up! There is one ceremony for the people who prefer a dignified, solemn, respectful graduation ceremony and then there will be a ceremony where they pass out noise makers to attendees to assist them with their screaming. Just an idea, but hey, I like it!
Hope you guys have a great week-end. I'm looking forward to participating in the Jogging for Janie in Vestavia on Saturday!

I have not posted it on Morgan's site yet, but she is still HAMA negative. We are scheduled to start ROUND NUMBER NINE of antibodies the last week of June. The plane tickets have been purchased and the room has been reserved at the RM House. Now all that needs to be said is, "we are looking forward to seeing you in NY when you are there for testing".
I guess you guys are counting down the days to Disney. We are too -- we are leaving in 29 days. And am I not the world's best planner -- we are returning home from Florida on a Saturday and flying out for NY the next Sunday. Brilliant, right?
Take care and God bless.

Hi! You do not know me but I found your website on the board children with cancer on bbc. While I have no idea what you are going through right now, I do feel your pain. Your baby is so adorable and my heart hurts for him and your family. I don't even know him and I wish I could take away his pain. What a beautiful strong little guy you have. I often wonder why these precious angels have to go through something so awful that even most of the adults in society today could not handle. Your story is so heartbreaking and I wish there was something I could do. Your baby does bring me such inspiration, that someone so young can go through something like this and still be a happy little boy. I wish you and your family all the best, and I will be praying for you all. God Bless. I would love to be able to send him a card if you have something set up to receive gifts and cards please let me know. Take Care!!

We hope you have a great time at the ballgame. I just love reading your updates when life is so normal at your house. Especially since what is going on at your house is normally going on at mine. It is like you and Morgan have some kind of strange connection.
We are returning to Florida on June 19. I hate that we will miss you. I am still waiting to hear about HAMA, but we will probably be in NY the last week of June.
Take care and God bless.

My favorite ride was the Mickey Philharmagic and I made Mommy and Daddy ride it atleast a 1000 times. Just wanted to leave you a note that we still think about you and pray too!

We have not signed your guestbook in a while, but we are checking on you guys almost daily. Re-immunizations -- that is something I can hardly wait for. We had Morgan's titers drawn two months ago and they were inconclusive or something. So, they were drawn again today. Hopefully, we will know something soon so that if the shots have to be done again, we can go ahead and get started. Take care and God bless.

That breaks my heart to hear how many shots he will have to have at one time. Do you still have some of the Emela cream that you could use...get them to mark the spots before you go so you will know where to put it. I am so thankful that things are so normal for your family now. To have 2 healthy kids is a miracle that I know you are so greatful for. The prayers for NED will continue. Kiss those sweet boys and give taylor my love. Love, Cathi

Day +400, yahoo! You are not haunted, Taylor's Guardian Angel has a sence of humor. I remember one day I searched the house over twice looking for a set of keys. I left the house with the spare and when I came home the keys were in the middle of my kitchen floor. Not a place that I would have passed over. I used to get freaked out by dsome of the things that happened untol I realized it was Sophia's Guardian Angel playing tricks on me. God bless and thank you so much for the words of encouragement. I know in this scary time I am taking to heart something that I shouldn't. Love to you all. Diane and Girls

Hi, I am Mary Ellen Clark, Margaret Anne Clark's grandmother. Margaret Anne has ALL and is completing her first year of treatment on the 12th of May. We all check on Taylor daily and are thrilled with his progress. I know it must still be a daily struggle. Just a little more on the party at Margaret Anne's house the Fradellas mentioned. It was so much fun. Not only did it raise the awareness of Childhood Cancer for so many, the children had such a good time. My husband arranged for a fire truck and personnel to be there for a long time and also arranged for a policeman to work with the traffic and visit with the children. A good friend of Margaret Anne's family donated the use of a bouncy thing (?) and the children really did enjoy that. We had ice cream donated by the junior league and cupcakes made and donated by their dear friend and neighbor. Another neighbor donated soft drinks and cookies. Some muffins and bottled water(thanks Dan, for your truck!) were also donated. It's amazing how many people did show up, not only the young parents but lots of grandparents like me who have been following our progress through this year. We could never have done this without Dan Sims and Deidre Downs leading us and also being there Sunday. Dan still has more work to do on the new committments. He is fabulous!!! I think we can make this tag happen. Jill and I have set up several more events to promote the tag and with a little luck and lots of help from others it will happen. Please know that you, your family and little Taylor are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sad at the news of Rachel...I have been following her progress for weeks now and thought for sure she would pull through. I was shocked when i read your update on her. i will be thinking of she and her family. Makes you think that life isn't so bad after all doesn't it? Puts many things in prespective for me. I am so glad to hear this great news from you though....WAY TO GO TAYLOR! I have been here so many times the past few weeks, but just for a second to make sure things with you were fine..but have been so busy trying to get thie house started...which we haven't done yet. Any day though! i am so tired of running the roads looking at brick, stucco, paint, roofs etc....if I EVER move...THERE WILL BE A HOUSE SOMEWHERE THAT I WILL LIKE WELL ENOUGH TO BUY! I WILL NOT DO THIS AGAIN! Take care of everyone, you have done a super job so far...Kim, try to live life now without the worries...now you know the LORD is watching over your family and taking good care of them!

Hi. You don't know me..but I have followed your journey for the past year. I have a 3 year old little boy whose birthday is January 15. I heard about Taylor through babycenter.com. I was hoping I could at least put your mind at a little ease...my little guy has been fighting the food thing for the past week. Yells that he isn't hungry, won't eat and tells me in no uncertain terms that he is just fine! So..let's hope and pray that your scans are clear on Tuesday and that he is just being three.
All my best

Hello Watts Family,
As you know, we just returned home from two weeks up "there". We are just checking in to let you know that you are all still in our thoughts and prayers. We were excited when we saw on your update that you will be back in NY on June 28. If Morgan is still HAMA negative, then that is when we will start her NINTH round of antibodies. And judging from the fact that she still has pain, it looks like a ninth cycle of treatments is in our future. Take care and God bless.

Hi friends,
I pray for each of you many times during the day and know that ya'll are having a hoot, living life to the fullest.

I am heartbroken for Alice her family. Words cannot begin to express the pain I feel for each of them. At night I thank God for the friendships that formed between each of us during such a stressful time in our lives. We three share a bond that cannot be broken. Austin and Alexis are cheering Taylor on and I know that he is going to continue to flourish.

At Relay for Life, there was a little girl there that I have seen for the past four years of going. She had the same type of cancer as Taylor and she is now sevens years out and doing wonderfully. She was diagnosed at one day old. Wow!

I love you my dear friends and I hope to see you soon. I am going to come up that way and stay with Alice soon. I will stop by for a visit.

God bless,

On Monday, Bob, Jerry and Roberta and I were thanking the lady at the Plaza Cafe for putting up a Blood Drive poster. A lady behind us asked who had done the drive and then told us she worked for Lifesouth. Whne I told her who the drive was for, she said she was helping to organize the lemonade stand for him. As we talked, it turned out that we went to high school together and graduated the same year! Such a small world!! It is incredible to me tha someone I went to school wiht %^ years ago is now helping Taylor.

Thanks for remembering to ask for prayers on behalf of Morgan. We heard from Dr. Kushner today and her bone marrows were clear. Praise be to God! We hope that you all have a fantastic Easter.
On a side note, we have started potty training Holden. I had forgotten what a difficult experience it can be. I am tempted everyday just to put him back in diapers. I am going to force myself to stick this one out. Although, I am sure it is a wasted effort because his dad will probably not be quite so diligent when Morgan and I return to NY on April 18. Can you believe she is getting ready to start antibodies cycle NUMBER EIGHT!
Take care and God bless.

I don't want to brag, but I knew the answers to all the questions. Actually, I wish I did not know the answers because it is only due to the nighmare that we have been living since Morgan was diagnosed with cancer.
Anyway, we are glad to see that life is fairly normal. We had Morgan's first speech assessment with the school system. I am not sure about Alabama, but in NC many school systems have early intervention programs set up for kids who need it. Morgan has all her speech therapy through the local elementary school and we don't have to pay for it (other than with our taxes). Being a school counselor, I kind of knew about this but I have found that many people do not.
Hope life continues to be normal for you all. Take care and God bless.

Taylor,
I had so much fun at your party on Sunday, even though you never gave me a (stinker). It is so good to see you playing with the other children and being a "normal" child. I am so proud of you for being such a strong little boy and coming so far in your life. Take care and keep up the good work.
love,

One year ago today, you underwent something that changed your life, and mine forever. You gave yourself the gift of life. I don't know how you were able to make it through that transplant as strong as you did, because it was terribly rough. One of the doctors the other day told us that you have had 100 times more lethal chemo pumped through your little body than a Stage 4 breast Cancer patient. That's hard to believe, especially considering how well you did with chemo. I am so proud of you, you are a stronger person than I will ever know how to be, and you are only 3 years old.

Dear Kim,
I think it is soooo funny that it takes 5 of us to take care of the boys when you are gone! Of course , we all had a great time, and to be honest, Jim could do it without us, but we do have fun doing it!
Glad you had a great time.

Dear Kim:
I see my dear friend Jen signed your guestbook before I got to it. Please don't let her in on our secrets for sweet tea. I keep telling her she just has to come south and find out for herself. I think it might be my best shot of getting her here -- I mean, the poor woman is desperate -- and I'm ready for a visit. So please, don't tell!

Thank you so much for signing Brandon's guestbook. Taylor is just precious, and I'm glad things are good. I really related to all of your words in your recent updates and in John Kwasinski's guestbook -- our boys sleep with us, too, and I trip over toys at least a dozen times a day. Chaos can be good, can't it?! I keep thinking of all those who would give anything to get to have the kind of chaos that 2 healthy boys bring into our house.

Please stay in touch. I'll continue to check on you all and you're now forever on my ever-growing prayer list.
Love,
Kristin Connor

Norcross, GA - Sunday, March 28, 2004 8:21 PM CST
Kim,

I am so delighted to learn Taylor's and Logan's HVA/VMA came back normal. Logan has higher limits because of his age. Even Taylor will move down in the range of normal as he ages. I believe it's at about age 10 (depending on the lab) when the normal adult ranges apply. Now to further complicate everything each and every lab has a different normal range as well as different age parameters. You must love it..

I have spent a great deal of time reflecting on the very issues you wrote about yesterday. How could we have become the people we are today wihout our children being subjected to the world of pediatric cancer? As I sit at the computer I look over at my bed and all three children are sound asleep with daddy.. I will probably have to sleep on the floor until one of them wakes up daddy and wants mommy. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

And the only tip you have is lots of sugar???? I knew that much. What kind of tea maker thingy do you have? Does it taste the same as the kind you make on the stove? I'm getting desperate and don't want to have to drive 500 miles for sweet tea.

She got cute number 14's jersey from him...We stayed in room 439 right by the nurses station but stayed in the activity room most of the day Tuesday. I really hate that we missed each other..

Hello Little ones!
Glad to hear of the great visits and how well Taylor did at the dentist. Jim was always like that the dentist, He'd hook his fingers into the loops on his jeans, turn around and tell us to wait in the waiting room and would walk back there by himself! So Taylor is a chip off the old block.
I guess MawMaw told you about our problem at Bob's work, so I am going to the office with him to help out this week. Maybe I can come by one day next week and spend the day playing with Taylor.
Love to all.

Kim,

You had me scared to death the HVA came back more elevated... We try to stay away from stuff that has alot of vanilla and those bannana's, and only for 24-48 hours prior to the test. Also if Taylor is upset or energetic it can cause the numbers to be elevated. There are so many factors.

Praying for your sanity and the HVA to be well under the normal limit.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIM!!! I know I am about seven minutes late...
I noted in one of your past journals Taylor is sweet tea fanatic. Having spent quite some time in the South I too am a sweet tea fanatic, the only problem is you can't get it in Chicago (these poor folks up North haven't a clue about the finer delicacies in life) and I swear you Southerens are holding out a vital part of the recipe. I have tried and tried and tried some more and I end up with sugar water or bitter sugar water. Any help, ideas???

And then I saw WAR EAGLE.... A very close friend of ours (son)played footbal (tight end) for Auburn a several years ago. We actually made the drive down for two games. The Auburn games were by the far some of the best times we have ever had.

Hoping the days are going smoothly with minimal worry and fear. We continue to lift Taylor in prayer.

Thanks for signing John's guestbook! Sometimes I simply don't have a clue how I am going to make it through another day, then the smile transcends Johns' face and I have the courage to forge ahead. I never knew the true impact of a parents love for a child until that fateful May day.

We are forever changed, and while I could have thought of a million better ways to be changed, I am grateful I live on the "inside"

I was absolutely overjoyed to read Taylor's BMB MIBG and bone scan were negative and we shall be lifting up the prayers for an unremarkable BMA!

God Bless,

So much fun to read the updates and to know that Taylor is enjoying all the "normal kid stuff." We went to the courthouse on Friday and signed up for our 2 Curing Childhood Cancer tags.... we have had Auburn tags for years, but even my husband agreed to replace his with the new tags. Can't understand why all those here in Alabama that keep up with Taylor have not made that important decision to get this tag. Keep reminding them of the importance of this tag. Hugs, Ms. Nena (from the cancer center)

After reading this last entry, I was wondering if the throwing up has had something to do with that cough. You said he had a nasty cough...he may have had some drainage and that caused the throwing up. You know when you have it and lay down, it runs down your throat....it has made me do the same thing and my kids...will keep my fingers crossed! I am so happy at your great news about the test results! I will be waiting patiently (yeah.....right) to hear about the bone marrow. Glad to see Mr. Logan slept through the night without that 3 o'clock feeding! I bet Jim is too!! Be sure to post some new ball pictures of Taylor as soon as you get them....tell him I said hello and that I am glad he is home...love, Cathi

Pittsburgh, PA - Thursday, March 4, 2004 8:46 AM CST
To the Watts family,

Five years ago today, my father passed away after an 18-month battle with colon cancer. He was 50 years old. My fathers situation is a far cry from the beautiful, vibrant little boy I saw scarf down the better portion of a chocolate lasagna at my table the other night. Every time I hear a southern accent come from one of my customers, my eyes light up and I know I can make them feel a bit more at home while they discover my adopted city. So when I asked the same question that I pose to thousands of people a year, “what brings you to Times Square?” I almost couldn’t believe the answer I heard that included the mention of Sloan Kettering. Taylor just looked too happy, too healthy to be here for any other reason then to take a carriage ride through Central Park (or clip-clops as I called them at his age). Or go ice skating in Rockefeller center. Or ride the Ferris wheel in the Times Square Toys “R” Us. My heart went out to him and it wasn’t easy for me to put on my professional face for the rest of my guest.

I live in a beautiful neighborhood on the upper east side at 91st and 2nd Ave, and though working at Olive Garden pays my bills, I am a publisher for a magazine that is set to launch in April. It’s called eNtrY magazine and we chronicle the lives of a group of New Yorkers through journals and interviews. I live with my girlfriend Jessica who works as a legal secretary in a Park Avenue law firm.

We would like to extend any graces we are capable of. From the use of our apartment (which is decently large as far a New York goes and has a guest bedroom with a loft bed), to offering to show you or assist you around New York. Whatever we can offer to help you out is yours without question. Whether you would like to use our spare room for any accommodations that the RMH isn’t able to offer, or you just want a friend to show you and Taylor a good day in the city, please call on us.

Furthermore, though eNtrY is just a fledgling publication, in the near future I’d like to offer you any service it can provide. Possibly the use of my PSA pages for Taylor or the inclusion of your cause in any event we throw.

I hope your trip home was safe and I look forward to any positive news about Taylor, whom Jessica and I will be following and including in our prayers.

Your Truly, in any need,

Jason D. Roth

Ooops!! I almost forgot! Taylor, I hope you have a great time at Guh's when you get back home. I hear the "porch guy" painted & fixed up your "house" in Guh's back yard. I know you & Guh will have a great time playing out there. Maybe I can stop by & visit while you are at Guh's. I haven't seen you since you came to Ca-Ca's office a while back. I know your Mama & Lo-Lo will be so happy when you get back home. Have a great flight home!! love, "Aunt Donda"

Hey Kim!! I talked to Guh last nite, but only for a couple of minutes. Didn't know about Tater's throwing up episodes. Hope he is doing better now. I am praying & believing that this is only a little bug & is not, in any way, anything serious. The little guy & you all have been thru so much - it's time for things to be normal for you all. Be sure to tell Taylor that "Aunt Donda/Roo" said HELLO when he gets back home!! Berl, you hang in there girl!! Everything will be OK!! Take care! Love to you all!

Morgan loves the safety cards too. She is all about some FAA regulations. Although, there are times she refuses to put her tray up during take and off landing and I have to tell her the flight attendant will yell at me if she doesn't listen. Kim, I hope that you are able to rest some with two of your guys out of town. Enjoy your little one during these few days. You know that we are praying for all good test results. Take care and God bless.

Taylor,
I am glad that you are looking forward to your trip to NY. I never feel that way, but Morgan seems to be happy when it is time to return up north. We will be praying for you while you are gone. We will ask the Lord to protect you all while you travel and for Him to bless the results of all your tests -- may they all reveal good news. We will also pray for your mommy and Logan since you will not be there to take care of them. God bless you all.

Well, I stood in line for 45 minutes to get my tag yesterday and while I was there I used the time to talk to people around me about the cartag. They thought I was goofy, I'm sure. But we have one more now because I paid my committment fee!
Do you know how many we have now?

Hi Watts Family,

We are all ok over here, a few bumps from the scans but I am not going to get too concerned. How do you do all the running with an infant?? We are still testing Sophia for a HAMA and we are still on the protocol even though she does not receive treatment. Her scans are sent to Dr Kushner. We are getting ready for our Disney trip in 2 weeks, yeah. We are doing the Lemon Aide Stand In June, I may even try to do it at the Walk for Floating Hospital but I don't know how kean on the Idea they will be. Good luck in NYC peying always for clean scans. We will be traveling to NYC(without the Girls) in May maybe if you are there we can meet up. God Bless. Love Diane and Girls

Just a little poem I wanted to share...ASAP!

There's work to do, deadlines to meet;
You've got no time to spare,
But as you hurry and scurry-
ASAP - ALWAYS SAY A PRAYER

In the midst of family chaos,
"Quality time" is rare.
Do your best; let God do the rest-
ASAP - ALWAYS SAY A PRAYER.

It may seem like your worries
Are more than you can bear.
Slow down and take a breather-
ASAP - ALWAYS SAY A PRAYER

God knows how stressful life is;
He wants to ease our cares,
And He'll respond to all your needs
A.S.A.P. - ALWAYS SAY A PRAYER.

You probably know this already, but we have Holden tested every six months. It is really rather easy, we just bag him and then take the sample into clinic. It is for no other reason than to give us peace of mind and to me that is worth something. I don't have much of a mind left, so the little bit I need certainly needs some peace.
Your talk of potty training makes me dread that we have to deal with that soon for Holden. Morgan was very hard to train and then she was diagnosed so we put her back in diapers. And then a few months before her 4th birthday, she decided that she was ready. It took all of one day. I know that it does not seem like it now, but Taylor will get there soon enough. I have never seen a 13 year old walking around in diapers.
We hope you are all having a wonderful week. Take care and God bless.

I laughed out loud at the description of Taylor's ensemble for Monday!! Jim,at three and up, always knew exactly what he wanted to wear too, but he was a little preppy! Taylor is his own man!! (I am still giggling:0)!
Taylor will be the happiest little boy in NYC to have PaPa and CaCa all to himself...granting every wish...playing in the playroom...and riding the ferris wheel.
Give both the boys a hug for me.
I am out two weeks in March and if it is okay I want to spend a day or two playing in the playroom with Taylor again. THAT was fun!
Love to all.

I clicked on Taylor's website just in time to see the note about being on Chan 6 at 5 p.m. so I rushed to the television and turned it on just in time to see the report. I tell you it did my heart good to see Taylor running around with a full head of hair. When I saw him at the cancer center he was getting radiation and had no hair
and did not feel well at all. So, I was thrilled to see him acting like a normal 3 yr old boy. I am working on getting my committements to buy the car tag... hopefully the numbers will increase daily. Thanks for posting the note about the TV interview. Love, Ms. Nena

Maybe we can get 32 people to "adopt" a tooth and get the white ones!:-) Don't worry, he'll still be handsome!
We got our Valentines and they are so cute. We have a couple for Taylor and Logan too.
So happy the scans were clear. Tell Doug hello when you tour the Milo plant. ALso, is it the sugar in the tea that hurts the teeth (I know tea stains, but does it cause the decay?)Maybe you could get Milo's unsweetened and use Splenda?!?

Hey guys!! Sorry to hear Taylor's got a cold. You are right about the nebs. They are so fun (yeah, right!). This is the first time we have had to do neb treatments. Hopefully, the rest of your family won't catch Taylor's cold. With two babes I feel we are at the doctor constantly. I don't know how families with three or more do it.

Thank you for sharing and helping Howard and Rhonda through this journey. I truely believe God meant us all to help one another. If outsiders could only see the faith, love and caring that is passed between families and friends connected through these wonderful beautiful children. Through all of this we have all been very blessed.

Hi Taylor....So happy to hear you don't have to take those awful pills anymore. When Hannah was on Accutane, she'd often have those "unexplainable" night cries also. So bad, as a matter of fact, we had blood drawn and tested only to find that everything looked ok. The onc was going to schedule scans but ended up writing it off as a calcium problem due to the accutane. Oh, mom, I truly understand that terrible feeling of fear, that slowly creeps in. When that happens,I immediately, stop and pray. I mean, what else can we do? It's a horrible feeling that comes along with the DX. I believe it's one of those "side effects" that we, as parents, are never "healed" of.

Thanks for posting the website for the car tag for curing childhood cancer and the note from the Sims family. I personally plan to "harp" about the importance of buying this tag to all my friends, volunteers at Hand-in-Paw, family, etc. I really think if we get commitments from 10 and ask them to get 10, the goal will be reached real soon.
Congrats on the first day off medicine... that is a milestone...

Hi Kim, I have enjoyed getting the daily updates on Taylor's website. Just don't have time to sign in very often. Glad to hear that Chan 6 is going to do a story about the car tag to help find the cure for this terrible disease. We plan to change from our Auburn tags to the cancer tags... and I am going to try to find 10 friends who will also buy them, then ask them to find 10 friends, etc. Just think if everyone would get commitments from 10 people, it wouldn't take long to reach the goal so the state will make them. Please do keep the number bought on your website... I think it will continue to encourage others to buy the tag.
So glad that Taylor will be coming off the Accutane today... no more medicine....YEAH!!!! I know that it has been a tough year for all of you but now you are turning a corner and have a bright future ahead for Taylor. When I saw you and Taylor at the cancer center, I prayed he would be one of the children to beat this disease. And it looks like all the prayers of so many are helping this come true.
Love, Ms. Nena and Ellie

Sorry you are having such a rough time right now. I agree with Tina, Aquaphor works wonders especially with the drooling. CVS has a generic brand of aquaphor that is much cheaper if you are interested. Hope you all have a great rainy Sunday!!

Jennifer <willyarbrough@earthlink.net>
helena, al usa - Sunday, January 25, 2004 9:47 AM CST
My dear friend,
Hang in there, better days are coming. Try Aquaphor on Taylors peeling skin. It helped Austins burns after radiation. Bone pain...yuck! My heart goes out to Taylor. I remember Austin having it as the new cells began transplanting. It was so painful. I will pray for no more pain OR VOMITING.

I know that you are at the end of you rope, tired and stretched beyond your elasticity. My friend, God really does have a plan for you. He also has a sense of humor. Keep holding on to your support.

I miss Thursday night pizza night with "Bob" and I miss our visits. I pray for each of you often and I am cheering you on.

God bless,

Sorry to hear that Taylor is vomiting. But, accutane does cause nausea and vomiting. Morgan did not vomit with it, but a lot of kids do. I thought the package even listed that as a side effect.
I know that it is very difficult to put those fears to rest. But, soon Taylor will be finished with accutane and things will get easier.
Taylor, we hope that you have a good time at the circus. Morgan and Holden are going with Madison in February and we are all really looking forward to it.
Take care and God bless.

Hi Kim,How is taylor doing with leg cramps? I know how scary it is when there is leg pain! You think the worst. I have alittle suggestion for Logan. I used to give Andrew camomile tea for his gas .

Kim, have you tried putting Logan's bouncy seat on top of the dryer and turning it on? I never even heard of this until mine were older, but they say the sound and vibration of the dryer works wonders with babies...let me know if it works! tell Mr. Taylor i am so proud of him for giving up that passy. I had to use the farmers Almanac to get rid of the bottle for my oldest. A lady at the bank told me....i didn't know how to read one. She said when the signs are in the feet (further from the mouth the better) is when you take a bottle or passy away. She told me exactly the day to do it on and we did...very skeptically may I add....AND IT WORKED! It was a lifesaver! Good luck and I hope he never asks for it again. Love to the boys, Cathi

Kim,

If you don't mind me asking what kind of cake release do you use when you make character cakes? I use to make them all the time but my biggest complaint was getting them out of the pan in one piece - not to mention all the different colors. If you don't mind would you email me about the release? Thanks and God Bless!!

God can surely work a miracle in Taylor's life and give him a complete healing in his body. God's word say: by my stripes you are healed, he died on the cross for our sins and our healing,he has already beared the cross and we don't have too. Logan will be just fine,just believe God and put your trust and faith in him no matter how the circumstances seem. Faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen; don't be move by what you see or what the doctors are saying, just keep your eyes focused on God and only believe in him and his word and that will keep you encouraged each day until God manifest his complete miracle in Taylor's life.
Praise God! Praise God!, because he is an awesome God.
I will keep your family in my prayers and look forward to reading that God has worked a complete healing in Taylor's life.
Remember, your faith and trust in God and believing is the victory to overcome this battle in Taylor's lfe.

Kim,

I can feel your pain on potty training. Madison didn't get potty trained until right before we went to NY with Morgan. It was tough! I don't miss that at all so I certainly can understand what you are going through. But like I am sure you have heard a million times it will happen. One day Madison just started doing it all the time. I was tired of buying those pull-ups too! Take care and I hope that Logan takes a long nap for you!!

I would like to see about doing somthing with the youth at my church. So if you want you can give him info so I can take it to Bro. Jay at my church. I would appresheate it.
Thank you!

Taylor,
Ketchup on salad, that sounds yummy. Once I caught Morgan dipping her Krispy Kreme doughnut in ketchup. She thougt that was pretty yummy too. And, she used to eat ranch dressing on waffles -- more yummies!

Kim and Jim,
We must always be on the same page. Last night, Morgan woke up and said her tummy hurt. Well, this totally freaked us out. She woke up this morning and said that she felt fine. Kids do get tummy and other aches, right? Or perhaps she was just pulling a ploy to sleep in mommy and daddy's bed. This disease is going to have me in the asylum before too much longer.
I have not used my gift certificate yet, but I have big plans for it. I have joined Weight Watchers (again) and as soon as I meet a goal I am going to pamper myself at the spa. Again, thanks so much for sending it my way although you certainly did not have too.
We are always thinking of you guys and miss you. Take care and God bless.

Hey there y'all,

I just had to tell you that I think it is so funny that taylor said his name is Tay Tay Watts. That is so cute. He reminds me so much of Abigail in so many ways, and I don't mean because they both had NB. They just have their little unique languages going on. Abigail loves to watch Sponge Bob, but she calls him Bob-bob, and at Christmas this year she was really big enough to enjoy it... she totally fell in love with snowmen, and so every time she sees a snowman, she calls at a man-man. Where do they get their vocabularies from?

YOU MAY REMEMBER MY MOTHER, HELEN FROM WHEN YOU WERE A KID. BUDDY SAID HE USED TO BRING YOU TO MOTHERS TO SWIM. I KNOW THAT GOD IS STILL ON HIS THRONE & ANSWERING PRAYERS! CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW ARRIVAL. KNOW THAT I'LL PRAY FOR THE SPECIFICS THAT YOU MENTIONED! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!! BY THE WAY, MOTHER & I WILL DO ANYTHING WE CAN TO HELP YOU OUT, ANYTHING AT ALL.

So sorry that you had such a scare yesterday. If we can do anything just call. And if Taylor wants to visit me at the library tomorrow while you are at the dr., I'll be here from 7:30-3:00, so just drop him off. No kids here this week and he can watch videos and read.

I am thrilled to hear that Taylor is out getting muddy and enjoying his gator. Hard to believe that tomorrow will be our 1 year from transplant date, but here it is already. Alexis is doing well and we are all so very thankful for her. God bless you and may you have a wonderfully uneventful year!!

What you said about the mail delivery really struck a nerve with me. We have had mail that was not ours delivered to us very often. When I wrote on it that it was left at the wrong address our delivery lady wrote me a note not to write on other people's mail again. Maybe she didn't want anyone to know! My neighbors have brought me my mail that was put in their box lots of times. Once I was delivered a package that clearly shouldn't have been left here. I wrote a sticky note on it to that effect and I got it back again. Next I took it to the post office and explained the situation and the next day it was back in my mailbox for the 3rd time. The name was no where near close to ours, and the address was not even the same street. After reading today's update, I wonder how many others around here are having the same problem?

First of all, Merry Christmas (belated!!). I am so glad to hear that you had such a good holiday, but I am sorry to hear that Guh got sick with the flu! Yuck!

Second, congratulations, big brother! I haven't been able to get online for almost two weeks now, so I didn't know that Logan had been born! Congrats! I bet you are a super big brother!

Third, Happy New Year! I know... it is still a few days away, but I wanted to be sure to not have to send a belated message regarding that one too! :)

I hope all is well!

One of the hardest things about this disease is that you walk around in a constant state of panic. Sometimes I feel like my daughter is on "death row" and we are just sitting around waiting to see if the governor is going to call and spare her life. It is always in the back of your mind and the slightest thing sends you into depression. The other night someone made the comment that Morgan looked tired and I immediately wanted to take her in for a CBC or something.
I am sorry to hear the Taylor is having some problems with ACCUPAIN (not a typo). I feel confident that this is the source of the problem. I will pray for all tests to confirm this.
This disease has been giving us our own headaches this week, but we will just KEEP PRAYING!
Take care and God bless.

Hi Jim, Kim, Taylor, and Logan,

Just wanted to let you know that I will be thinking of you all and praying very hard today. I hope that you have a smooth delivery Kim, and having had a C-section myself, I do not envy that pain you will have when you get out of the bed to go to the bathroom that first time. God, it was excruciating for me. I pray that Logan is as healthy as a horse, and we are so happy to hear about how well Taylor is doing. God bless y'all on this happy day, Logan's Birthday.

With much love,

I guess as I write this Taylor, Guh,and Mary are Alabama bound. I know you are so ready for Taylor to get home. We really enjoyed rooming with your family this past week. I guess I should say congratulations that Taylor is finally finished with treatment, but at the same time I know that there are probably some feelings of apprehension. I have always felt "comfortable" being in treatment. We will continue to keep Taylor and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Speaking of prayers, we will also be saying a few for you on Tuesday as your new baby boy makes his appearance.
We are hoping to meet up with you guys again sometime! Take care and God bless!

I can hardly believe it's time for The Little Brother to be here!! I remember so vividly being at the hospital shortly after Taylor was born. You were sitting there like there was NOTHING to having a baby!! If you get half a chance, please give me a call this afternoon at work. Just a couple of questions I have for you & to chit-chat for a few (very few) minutes. I need to get with you. I have something for Logan & I want to give it to you "in person".

Hello Kim, I pray for clear tests as well for Taylor. I saw that little cutie at the Ronald McDonald House. I cannot imagine what you are going thru without being with him. I know he is in good hands and is taken care and you probably feel the same but I am sure you would rather be with him. Take care and relax while you can!!!!!!!!!! Those little ones are so much easier to carry in the belly than taking care of them once they enter the world. Take Care and as always we are praying for your whole family. Take Care.

I have followed and prayed for Taylor for some time and never signed but I just wanted to tell you that his a cutie pie. He is so sweet! My daughter Madison is just a few days older than him and they have got to play together a couple of times. They are so cute. I know it must be hard to miss your baby but he is in good hands up here. Your Mom and Mary are such nice caring people. Take care and you are in my prayers!

I know you are awaiting Logan's birth, but also will be missing Taylor. He will be fine....I hope you sent ALL of his toys and bedtime "goodies!" You will need these two weeks for some good old fashioned rest before ALL HELL breaks loose and you have 2 kids at home 24/7!!!!!!! You will enjoy every minute and wonder how you ever made it without 2 kids. Hope you have a great day and keep us informed on Taylor's progress while in NYC! Love, Cathi

Hello! Gosh, I didn't realize that I hadn't signed in in so long....just went back to check. i do check in everyday even if it's for just a split second. I have been working everyday and just sometime don't think to sign in. I am at school now, but have a little extra time...(good class!). We are having our womanless beauty pageant today and I am a judge. taylor would love it, but may get confused as to why guys are dressed as women! It should be alot of fun, not to mention we will just be in classes 1/2 a day! I will only have 1st, 2nd and 3rd period classes because I am free 4th. I have been so amused at the potty training stories and have also felt for you so much! Having 2 girls was a little easier. Hopefully when Logan is ready to start, he will have seen Taylor "do it on the potty" and will want to follow in his footsteps. That is what we will hope for anyway. I hate that you aren't going to get to go with Taylor Saturday, but he will be in good hands and you will enjoy the rest. He will think of it as a "BIG BOY ADVENTURE." I will keep checking in, but sometimes may be to rushed to sign on. Have alot to do in the next few days. I wish you all a great Thanksgiving and a wonderful trip for Taylor and his caretakers. Always know you are all in my thoughts even if you don't see a message from me everyday. take care of that precious cargo you are carrying! Love, Cathi

Somebody has to say it here...
WAR EAGLE!!
Wish you could have gone to the game with us because you would have loved it! There was lots of yelling, two fantastic bands, and, oh yeah, WE WON!!
It was great riding the carousel with you. Did you make it home with the blue balloon? Uncle Bob went shopping yesterday and HE bought you some surprises. I know you'll get at least one of them on Thanksgiving; he MIGHT save the others for Christmas.
Have a great day and if not before, we'll see you Thanksgiving!

Taylor,
We are really looking forward to seeing you in NY. If it is okay with you I will give you your shots while you are in NY (but only on weekends). I promise that I will try to do it fast so that it will not hurt too much. Just don't hate me for it. I would not do it if it was not necessary.
Kim,
This will absolutely be no problem at all. Just tell your mom and aunt to remind me and let me know what time would be good for me to do it. I can even do it during the week if it will cut down on some of the time that they have to spend in clinic. Remember, we are fighting this thing together and I am more than willing to help out in any way I can.

I am glad to know that everything is well with Taylor and family. I am very anxious about doing the picture thing with Ally because she has not had a studio picture done since she was 6 months old. I know I am a terrible mother but when she got sick there was never the time among other things. I just wanted to drop in and check on you all. Taylor is great so I am sure that means you are all great. God Bless you all and I know I will get mad mail for this but ROLL TIDE!!! LOL!!!

LOVED the pic with Santa! What a brave boy you were! I printed out a copy for my desk and everyone thinks it is so cute!
Still have a surprise here at the house for you...I'll get by when it is convenient for you, and when Bob can come too. He is working late becuase the company bought a new building and they are getting ready to move into the new offices.
Be sweet!

Kim - You've kept me rolling in the floor as you relate the "poopy" incidents in the middle of potty training. Thank goodness for a wonderful sense of humor! Am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Logan! We too have just had a precious addition to our family, the birth or our nephew Jack McAdam Minehan. Give my little buddy, Taylor, a big hug, and tell Jim and Aunt Jeanna hello! - - -

Hey guys! Kim, I am sorry about the poopy incident but I did laugh. I had a kid poop on me at work and I had to get hospital scrubs, and that was not my kid! Provided amusement for everyone else though. I hope little Logan isn't giving you too many problems, esp since it appears that Taylor is really keeping you running!

Hi Kim,
I enjoy reading the updates everyday and do not take time to post a note very often. It is wonderful to read how Taylor is being so "normal" in all that he is doing. Just wanted to thank you for mentioning Gracie.... I had not checked her website since the first of the week but did as soon as I read what you had written. So thanks.
Hope you all get great reports from the latest round of tests, etc. and that the plans for NYC are on schedule.
Love, Ms. Nena and Ellie

Hi Kim Hi Taylor!!!!! Once again I read your update which I might say you do an absolute wonderful job at and I can totally relate. I swear the boys are so much alike. Only Carter has alot worse off to say than butt crack. If you could only imagine. I hope your hama test comes back negative and Taylor can continue to treat. I check in on you just about every day but don't always have time to write. Unlike myself you seem to always find time to update every day. I hope this finds you Kim feeling well and ready to bring the new addition into the family. I know they are much easier to take care of in your belly but eventually they have to come out. Take care. Always thinking of you.

Hello to all the Watts! I have been checking in on Taylor everyday, but have been so rushed to get off of here, that I haven't signed in. I try to keep my phone line open at night in case I get called to go in...I'm booked up the rest of this week, so I can say hi tonight! Glad to hear Taylor had a nice halloween night. I bet he was on a sugar high for hours!!!! I also enjoyed getting out the old baby clothes, eventhough I didn't know what I was having. Luckily it was another girl, but since there was 7 years difference in their ages, I really had to start over. I know you are all ready for the baby to get here. I hope that Taylor is almost finished with his treatments and is disease free soon after the baby arrives. It would be nice just to settle in to regular life for a change. Lots of prayers still coming your way and lots of hugs to little man! take care......check in tomorrow. Love, Cathi

Didn't even turn on the computer at school because with that bunch, you can't take your eyes off of em'! Taylor is going to be so cute on Halloween...wish I could go trick-or-treating with yall to see what he does! Mine are to old to go anymore, so last year was probably the last year for the oldest! We live so far out in the country too that we don't get "trickers" out here. Katie will go with my step mom to take her 2 year old grandaughter. She will enjoy it just as much.

Hi There Taylor (& Mom & Dad, too)!! I do see Jim at work occasionally, but haven't seen you guys in forever! I am so sorry that I have not signed the guestbook in so long. Since I started back to work, it has been tough. I didn't realize it would be so hard on me physically to go back. Anyway, I think about y'all every day & continue to pray for Taylor's healing. I am working on a little something for the new baby. (Sure hope I can get it completed BEFORE he arrives!! :o) Roy & I discussed the names on your baby poll & decided on Jackson Riley Watts, but I also like Trevor Jackson Watts (I'm not sure that one was even there.) Roy & I noticed that y'all really like that last name - it's on all of the baby names.....hahahaha!! We sent a card the last time y'all went to NY, but got it back just the other day. It was floating around for almost a month!! Imagine that!! It's great reading about all the everyday things you do & are going thru right now and seeing that Taylor has as normal a life as he does. I admire & love you all. Just keep hanging in there...God is good. And God answers prayer. Am going for now, take care & give each other a great big hug from us.

I just went back and read you entry again about the surgery day, and I remembered something that brought a smile and a tear to me. After surgery, when he was still "asleep" I stepped back for a minute just to get a quick look. He looked so small and helpless. As he lay there sleeping, his little hand started moving around until it landed on purple frog's leg. He grabbed the leg, pulled it close and never opened an eye. Purple frog has been a great buddy, hasn't he? He went through the surgery with Taylor that day and has been his constant companion, brave and true throughout this all. I read in the paper the other day that a new breed of purple frogs has been discovered, but we all know the best purple frog lives with Taylor!

Hi! It looks like if HAMA is negative on the next test, we will be in NY together. This is assuming that Morgan is negative. But, she was still having pain with her last treatment so I am thinking it is pretty doubtful that she has HAMA yet. We will keep praying for the Lord's will to be done for all of you.
Take care and God bless!

I know Rhonda(Carter's Mom) is waiting for the test results of the HAMA. It can't possibly be easy. I am praying for you and know that God is with you all!

Hey Watts Family! Just think -- once Taylor finishes this round of Accutane (we like to call it Accupain) he will be halfway there. Morgan started the fifth round on Saturday. I guess if it works, then the side effects are worth it. But, we have been told that it can slow down healing in a broken bone, which may not be a good thing. All of her doctors are in agreement that fighting NB takes priority over the bone healing and it WILL heal eventually.
Morgan is on the fourth day and her skin is already turning red, plus she is extremely emotional! I will be so happy when she finishes up with this stuff.
Take care and God bless!

I was so glad to find this site. My daughter, Madison, age 2 was just (8/03) diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. I have never heard of this cancer and felt so alone. I would love to talk to you, if you can find the time.

I met Taylor's Uncle Bob Dennis while on a United Way visit to Fulcrum Construction. As my friend and I were discussing some of the United Way partners and services, Mr. Dennis told us about Taylor and asked us to visit this website. I will keep Taylor and the whole family in my thoughts and will pray for his healing.

Sounds like yall have a full plate this week end! I have been home sick for two days, but am feeling better today. We will be taking Katie and a friend to the pensacola Fair tomorrow night....not for me to ride, but they enjoy it. My husband will ride all the upside down stuff with them. It makes me sick to be turned every which way but loose! Taylor will enjoy "helping" get out all of the baby's things. You may have the problem of him wanting to play baby now...getting in and out of the baby bed, using the pacifier again...etc. Hasn't he given that up? I always hate to see a post where a child is loosing his/her battle with this disease...makes me think of Taylor and how well he is doing. Thank GOD for all the miracles he has performed on him. Continuing to pray for all of you daily...have lots of fun this week end! Check in with you sometime tonight to see what else he has gotten into! Love, Cathi ....I like the name Tyler...would be cute with Taylor

Hi Taylor,
Glad to know that you are doing so well. My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your family. May God continue to bless and keep you is my prayer. I'll never forget your family (especially your grandparents) and all that they meant to my boy and me during their youth.

All of the names on the poll are not tied to any family members or their names. We wanted this baby to have a totally different and unique name.

On the baby poll I see lots of Reeds, Davis's, and Rileys. Are these family names, maybe Kim's maiden name in there? Just wondering.
Jackson Riley has an old south aristocratic sound to it. That's my favorite.

I sure hope that you are feeling better Taylor. And to you mom I hope that you stay well. Oh the baby name game that was a fun one, for our 3rd child my husband was insistant of the name Orion Troy I just could not picture an Orion but that is what we have and he is completly a "one and only" quite a chacter, I am sure that whichever name you choose will fit your son perfectly. I hope that your last 10 weeks go quickly and without too much discomfort.

I am Cindy Rentz's sister and I have been keeping up with

Please let me know, and my prayers are with each of you!!!

Hey Guys! Just checked on the poll! I voted on Cameron as the name...don't know why, just liked the way it sounded. i named my first baby after my best friend, the second had no family or friend attached, it was just a name all to herself that we liked. I have an idea that I will run by you. Since your having a time deciding on a name....why don't you post all the family names (if that's what you want)...even some that you haven't listed and see if we can put something totally different together. You are going to be so tired of seeing the same names by the time the baby gets here, you may want something different. Put Jim's name in there and maybe part of Taylors name. What is his middle name...or first name? Just a thought...and add some other names in there that you may just like that aren't already listed. Ok, I will leave you with that thought and see what else you come up with for us to "make." Take care and tell Taylor to keep eatin' that chocolate cake! Love, Cathi

Hi Taylor,

NYC is cool (although it's not home). My favorite pizza is York's plain cheese kind. It's a classic. If you go there, tell the guys working there hello from me. Please also tell all the MSKCC and RMH people hello from me, too. Everybody knows me because I've been going there for so long. Could you tell them that it's still summery here and I'm still wearing shorts and sandals, and let me know if anybody smiled? If they're shivering, they need to come down here and visit me. Thanks.

Mom said to tell you that we acknowledge your anniversary today. She said to tell you that although it might seem wierd, it's still very good to say, Happy Anniversary -- that your mom would understand (I've had 4 of them and still counting). So: Happy Anniversary!

Reading you all relive what happened 1 year ago breaks my heart but at the same time it makes me happy. If you all had not heard those words, I would have never met 3 absolutely wonderful people that I am honored to call my friends. I would not have had the opportunity to tell the world about this wonderful little boy named Taylor or would not have had some conversations with Kim and Jim about "normal" Taylor stuff or stuff in general. I hate that you both had to hear the word cancer related to your son but I am so very happy that I have met you and can say that I had a very small part in Taylor's health. I do not have to tell you that I love your son because you know that I do. He is an amazing little boy and has to most WONDERFUL personality. It has been a long year for you but give Taylor all the love and support that you have and you will see many more Halloweens, Thanksgivings, Christmases, New Years, birthdays, etc. I love all three of you.

Just wanted to let everyone know Taylor got a double dose of the clothes fever. From the time Mommy was about Taylor's age until she started doing her own laudry in college every piece of clothing had to match. I remember all too well the battles of having to find a particular color of undies so that would match her pants. Love you! SMILE!

Hey guys!! Just wanted to let you know that we are praying for you. I know that Taylor's HAMA is probably very frustrating. I'm a planner too so I understand how it throws you off kilter in every way when things don't go as planned. I know God is watching over you and in the long run things will work out. Try not to worry too much (easier said than done :-)). Just know that there are many people praying for you.

So glad to hear all is well with you and Taylor these days!!
I remember the day well when I went in and weighed more than I thought possible with MaryAynne. At least you don't have much longer to go!! Why don't the doctors just have you weigh in and tell you "yes, you've gained" and leave off the how much part? Don't hope that the baby will turn face up too hard. You really don't want to go through a Sunny Side Up delivery!! The back labor pain is unbelievable!!
As always our thoughts and prayers are with you. Hope to catch up with you in person sometime soon!

Hi friends, I am so glad to hear things are going well with you. And your weekend getaway sounds great. I haven't checked on you for a while & enjoyed reading all of your updates. Keep the good news coming!! I'll pray for you this week. If I can help in anyway, I'm close & would love to help.

The only bad thing - I had not heard about Cliff. My heart breaks for them. I had prayed for a miracle for him. He was such a great guy. I'll never understand all of this.

May God bless us all with wonderful memories to help make up for the bad ones,
Kelly

What is HAMA? HAMA stands for "human anti-mouse antibodies." HAMA measures how strongly the body's immune system is reacting to 3F8. 3F8, like most monoclonal antibodies, comes from a mouse white blood cell; this means that 3F8 looks different from a human antibody and a human will form antibodies (HAMA) against 3F8. If a patient has HAMA, there is no point in administering 3F8 treatments because the HAMA will block the 3F8 from getting to neuroblastoma cells. However, HAMA can disappear; when that happens, we can resume 3F8 treatments. We check for HAMA by a blood test. Patients with HAMA do not have pain or other side effects of 3F8 treatment, but patients without side effects sometimes do not have HAMA (and can continue to be treated with 3F8).

THANK GOD for the great news! I WAS JUST CHECKING ON YALL, NOT EXPECTING FOR THE RESULTS TO BE IN! GLAD I DECIDED TO CHECK. WILL BE HOPING FOR THE SAME RESULTS ON THE OTHER. I HAVE LOOKED ON THE SITE SEVERAL TIMES FOR WHAT HAMA MEANS AND CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANYTHING...IF IT'S NOT TO MUCH TROUBLE, JUST HIT ON THE IMPORTANT PART AND TRY TO EXPLAIN IT TO ME. I KNOW YOU HAVE EXPLAINED IT BEFORE AND I EVEN WENT BACK, BUT MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING. I SURE HATE THAT THE FLOORING WAS DAMAGED...WE WERE SUPPOSED TO START OUR HOUSE NEXT WEEK AND HAVE PUT IT OFF DUE TO LUMBER PRICES. IT'S NOT GOOD NEWS BECAUSE I WAS SOOOOOOOOO READY, BUT THERE IS NO NEED TO BUILD SOMETHING AND PAY TRIPLE FOR IT FOR THE SAME THINGS. OH, WELL, MAYBE ONE DAY SOON WE CAN START. HAVE A GOOD AFTERNOON.......CHECK FOR MORE RESULTS LATER. LOVE TO LITTLE GUY! CATHI

Praise the Lord for the good test results! It should not be a big deal at all to draw on Tuesday. We did that once when our HAMA draw day was during Morgan's Make-a-Wish trip. Latisha even told me to do it this way so you will be fine. Plus, you can save a little bit of money in the mailing because it does not have to be sent "next day". I mailed it on Tuesday and told them it needed to arrive on Friday and I think it was about half the cost.
Take care and God bless!

I was so excited when I counted it all....we have raised $76....and $41 of that was all in bills!!! I was thrilled! So far, in the past two weeks, from one store, we've raised $100.10:) I can't wait to send this check to you guys! I hope we keep up at this rate. I send big hugs! Love Marissa

You actually give me strenth knowing that you can do the NY thing pregnant and all. I am so nervous about coming on Sunday without Howard. It really stinks that we ended up on seperate dates. I am sure we will meet again. Give Taylor a big huge hug and kiss from us. Carter is still talking about him. God Bless you!

Hi sweetie I am sorry to hear that your leg is bothering you so. I hope that now it is feeling better. I pray that your allergies clear up and that these awful trips are the answer for you to be NED FOREVER. Just 4 more days and you can be home!!! I will be praying that the scans only show good news and that Taylor is completly NED and that he stays Hama neg. and you can finish the treatment. I just wish that things did not have to be so horrible for you in NY I keep hoping that this would be the trip that finally would go smooth without any bad days (maybe the next trip) I hope that tomorrow your day is over quickly and your in and out as fast as possible. Take care

I have good news to report Taylor! The town where I go to college has begun to collect money for you and your family. We have put coffee cans all over the village (yes, it's a village, not even big enough to be considered a town, hehe). I didn't expect anything to fill up for a few more weeks, even months...but I went into the local IGA store and I found that your can had been filled to the BRIM and with dollar bills! Looks like I need to find a bigger can if we continue at this rate, which I really hope we will. I imagine we'll have a check sent out to your family by late NOV or early DEC. Anyway, I just wanted to pass on the good news. I send big hugs and lots of love. Marissa Kent, philanthropy chiar of Theta Phi Alpha, Muskingum College

Have fun at Toys'R'Us. Sarah surprised Steve and I by being brave enough to go on the ferris wheel and had such a great time! NYC is a pretty cool place to be! May your day be bright with blessings! :-)

It is so good that you have the first week behind you and a fun weekend ahead of you. I guess the pain means that he does not have HAMA. In the long run, I think this is a good thing. I hope next week goes well for Taylor and you are enjoying being back home in the blink of an eye.

I JUST PRAY THAT ALL GOES SMOOTHLY WITH THE TREATMENTS AND THAT IT'S NOT TO UNCOMFORTABLE FOR HIM. I HATE THAT YOU ARE ALL UP THERE WITH 9/11 COMING UP TOMORROW.

I know that you want to get through 4 of these treatments, but I'll just say that we'll leave it in God's hands...Taylor WILL get what he needs!
Wish I could have seen the Central Park Zoo...but I wouldn't have touched the roaches either!!
Look for the package I sent. You should get it by Friday at least.

Hey guys, hope all is well today and i am praying really hard that all of his symptoms are medicine related. When will you know something? I pray for a safe, uneventful trip for you too. Who will be going this time? Take care of yourself and try to have a little fun too. Check in later on you....love, Cathi

Hi Kim! I'm glad that you guys are having a good time at home! I know how it is, every little ache and pain is cause for worry, but just wanted to ease your mind a little. It's possible that Taylor could be experiencing some sort of neuropathy which is a quite common side effect from vincristine, even months after getting the chemo. Jay had it in his ankles, and most kids I know have gotten it in their feet or ankles. A lot of little kids would take to walking on tip toes also. Jay was given neurontin for the pain and seemed to work for him. Also, as you know, the GM can cause bone pain. Hopefully that's all that it is, but I know how nerve racking it can be.
I'm sure that we'll be seeing you when you all come back to NY!

Hey guys how are you doing? Looks like we just might get to meet after all. Carter does the same thing he hates when they have to peel off the tegaderm. Except he actually cries. He starts crying before they even access him I think it is all in the thought of having it done. Carter really enjoyed the drunk Taylor video he keeps telling everyone about it. I just crack up every time because I can truly relate and almost see Carter when I watch it. Well take care and we are keeping you in our prayers.

It seems as if Taylor is having the best of both worlds -- no pain, but still able to continue treatment. I know you are not looking forward to going back to NY, but just look at it as another opportunity for Taylor to get lifesaving treatment. We will think about you as you head back to the Big City.
Take care and God bless!

Hopefully with lots of prayers and lots of faith, those prayers will be answered and Taylor will have a normal life again soon. You will need him with those 2 extra hands pretty soon....get me a diaper, get me some wipes, get me a bottle...well, you get the picture! Lots of love and prayers to the whole Watts family.

It's going to be a lot of work and a lot of fun! As far as baby names go for baby number two, I like them all, are you sure of the gender yet?? I personally like Seth, Allen, Braden, Joel,Alexander, David, pretty standard. I'm sure whatever you decide will be wonderful:) The ladies of Theta Phi Alpha at Muskingum College send our love and soon I hope, our money!:) Big hugs

Hi Kim,I miss everyone,we are like family now.When Andrew is on the accutane.He is merissable (sp) Although this time hasn't been bad.Maybe his system is getting used to it.Andrew skin gets so flared up,that no matter what I try to put on him ,It stings and he goes blistic.You just have to keep them coated the best you can.His lips get so sore they crack and bleed.I coat him constantly he could probably slide right to Ny.Just wotch your ingredients,anything with any alcohol will burn.I now us bag balm now seems to work.Also use oatmeal baths or baby oil in bathtub.Hope you had a great trip.Will talk to you soon.Love and prayers to all.

Hi Kim!
Can't find your email, so thought I'd ask the question this way. Perhaps others have had this problem.....
I contacted Delta to find out how to donate our skymiles (we have a few), and we were told that Delta does not allow for this. I contacted several people in the skymiles department and got the same denial that anyone could donate their miles for any reason. I'm never going to use my skymiles and would be happy to donate them, but Delta is putting up a road block.
If you have some suggestions on whom to contact and how to get the miles donated to you, that would be great!
Glad all is going your way these days!!
If you get to the big apple and have time for a musical, I highly recommend "Big River." I think Taylor would like it, too!! It's a dramatization of the Mark Twain Huckelberry Finn stories. I hear that this version is with a cast of hearing and deaf performers. The music is great!! It's one of my favorites.
Good luck and hope to continue to hear good things on the web site!

Hello Watts Family! We just found out today that Morgan is HAMA negative. So we will be heading North on October 5. MSKCC also sent Morgan's scans to us, I had no idea what to do with them, so I just slid them under the couch. I am sure I will forget they are there and find them again 10 years from now. Hopefully, at that time Morgan and Taylor will be healthy teenagers driving us all completely crazy!

So glad to read that nothing EXCITING is happening. We should know about Morgan's HAMA test today. It is so much easier when you get the eight week break. I am sure if you can just make it through this fourth round, then things will get much better.
We put Eucerine on Morgan's skin. It does not burn and she actually asks for her "itch medicine". You can buy the generic brand and save some money. Also, shay butter from Bath & Body Works does pretty well. They have it in a stick form that makes it easy to take on the road. I don't know if Taylor's lips get real dry, but we have found that Vitamin E works great. You just take the capsule, pop it, and rub it on the lips. It also does not burn when applied.
I hope things continue to be "normal" for you guys!

Ally is telling me everyday that 2 is closer that I really think. We will be weaning the pasifier after Ally's last hospital stay next month. Fun, Fun, Fun!!!! I am just ready for Ally to start to talk, I think. The pointing and grunting is really getting old.
Glad to hear such great news and we are praying daily for Taylor and his family. Maybe we will get to see you all in clinic soon. Love you guys and God Bless!!

I am so happy to hear the wonderful news of the tests. Carter and I were watching your drunk video and he thought it was very funny. He doesn't know that he acts the same way on meds. Good report from the Dentist Kim. I go tonight and I know mine wont be that way.

My sister & I were in Atlanta to hear Joyce Meyer & I kept thinking about y'all & hoping everything was OK for you.

Thanks for mentioning Morgan in your update. Our prayers are being heard. Morgan was released today and her CT scan and urine tests were NORMAL. Praise the Lord! We are just waiting for those bone marrow tests now. I guess we will be getting them about the same time because Morgan and Taylor were both tapped on Wednesday. We will certainly be praying for Taylor's platelet issue to resolve itself and for Taylor's bone marrow to be clean.
Take care and God bless!

Hello! So glad to hear that you all are at HOME. I couldn't believe how diffiult your last two days in NYC were, with losing electricity and all the mix-up with the airplanes. You can be proud of yourselves for surviving that with your sanity intact. Have a wonderful time being together in your "non-hospital" place. Isn't it a great feeling? :-)

So glad that you finally made it home. I hope you enjoy your time together. Morgan's fevers are gone, but they will not let us discharge until tomorrow when her cultures have had 24 hours to grow. But, they gave her a day pass so we are home for the afternoon. We are heading back to the hospital tonight for more IV antibiotics. Please keep praying that this will pass soon. What did we think about before cancer entered our lives?

Hi Jim, Kim and Taylor (and baby # 2), I have been thinking about you this week, as always. I enjoyed reading about your experiences with the blackout. It was pretty amazing to watch on TV. We have a new baby girl, Olivia Hope. She was born Wednesday, the 13th and is healthy and beautiful. She looks a lot like Amanda did as a baby. You can go to eamc.org and click on storkbytes to see a picture of her and our family. Hope you all are doing well. Come see us if you get to Auburn this fall. We would love to see you!

Hopefully that was just chalked up to a BAD trip and it won't happen again. You had to be literally disgusted with all of the changes at the airport. I am glad to know your all home safe and sound...ENJOY your time at home and your new kitchen! What a nice surprise! Check in later....love to Taylor! Cathi

Your updates crack me up. Keep up your sense of humor. Laughing is such good medicine for the soul. Taylor is doing so well and and I am so proud of him. I think of ya'll every day and keep you in my prayers. I am cheering you guys on.

Hey guys! It's great to hear good news...well....except for him using your leg for a toilet! I bet you bathed ASAP! Bless his little heart! I know yall are so ready to go home to familiar faces and places. Tell Taylor my little Daschund (sp) had major surgery this morning. He had been sick for a couple of days and they didn't know what was wrong. Well,this morning at 12 am I called our veteranarian and he met me. Tanner was struggling to breathe. He did X rays and found that all of his intestines, heart, and lungs were all pushed up into his chest. He also had a torn diaphram. The doctor carried him home with him for the rest of the night on an IV drip and watched him through the night. (Don't you wish you could find a human doctor that would do that?!) He is all fixed now and will be home tomorrow. Really scared me though, he is my baby boy! Glad to know yall will be home soon....take care until the next update! Love, Cathi

Kim,
I have laughed myself silly reading your updates. The "King" reminds me of Austin and it sounds very normal to me. There were days that I could have jump off of the top of a building over his behavior. The meds probably don't help. For peace of mind, call B'ham if it will help. Tonight When I get down on my knees I will ask God to give you guidance with the terrific twos. I have learned not to ask for patience, it brings more trials!

I love you and if there is ANYTHING that I can do for you please do not hesitate to ask. I promise this to shall pass.

Tina

Don't second guess yourself. You and Jim are great parents. Feeling guilty sometimes is normal. Taylor is a very smart little boy and you are a smart mom. Oh, how I remember the terrible two's!! It will pass-then you'll have baby #2 going through them before you know it!

We had the same problem with the GM-CSF. When the dose doubled Sophia's leg swelled the size of a baseball. They just stopped the GM-CSF. Which I am sure made no difference since the treatment was not working. Hoping you have an easy time remaining there. Take care.

There's just something about being home, isn't there?? I'm so proud you are one of those Mom's who does what she has to do to take care of her little one. Some women just take every word a dr. or nurse says at face value. They are all human too and can make mistakes. You are a smart, loving Mom to double-check & to call them on that stuff!! GO KIM!! I'm so proud of y'all. You have had such trials & tribulations, but you keep on keeping on.

Kim,
I cannot imagine how tired and troubled you must feel BUT I am so proud of you. You are your son's best advocate and you are not sitting by and letting things slide. I am cheering you on girlfriend!!! I still have Austins medical alert bracelet and on the back in big letters it says CMV negative blood products only. Until this diagnosis, I had no clue what CMV even meant. Keep those nurses on their toes. You go girl!!!

I know I say this every time but please try and rest when you can and take care of yourself. I cannot imagine how exhausted this whirlwind makes each of you feel.

Give Taylor a big hug from me and tell him that we are proud of how brave he is.

I pray for each of you throughout the day and ask for God's blessings to shine on you.

Sleep well,

Hi Jim, Kim, Taylor, and Baby number two,

It has been a while since I signed your guestbook, but I want you all to know that I am thinking of you daily and praying for you daily as well. I must admit there is hardly a day that goes by that I do not check Taylor's guestbook. I don't know why I picked him to keep up with. Maybe it is because I am originally from Alabama, and Taylor and Abby were both diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. My heart really does go out to you guys. I guess our battle with neuroblastoma has not been quite as eventful. I mean, we certainly did our time, but... I am inspired by you Kim. I can tell you are a smart, aware, beautiful, and wonderful mom. I am thankful that you have such a loving family and support system to help with all of the day's work involved in caring for Taylor. I understand your frustrations with the hospital. I think sometimes people need to be a little empathetic. I wonder if they teach classes on that to medical professionals? Fighting cancer is something that is completely draining, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Cancer causes you to think totally different about life than you ever did before cancer, and I wonder sometimes who really stops to think about that before they are poking needles in your child, or doing some sort of proceedure with an annoyed look on their face. Luckily we have a wonderful doctor, and some of the nurses and staff memebers are great too, but a rotten apple can make the whole bunch seem sour. I am sorry for taking up so much time and space. I just want you all to know that I will continue to check on taylor daily and pray for all of you. May God richly bless you all.

I know you'll actually have more time for that on the weekend. Someone mentioned that they took the RMH kids on a doubledecker tourist bus the other day. That sounds like fun.

Hi Kim this is Rhonda Carter's mom just a quick note to see if you could help me out since I am not sure where to go next. I need to know how long and what the details are of the 3F8 antibody I did look on your links but it just doesn't give enough information can you help?????????

Kim,
I pray for you and your family every night. I know that this new adventure must be exhausting, even without adding the pregnancy part. You are doing such a wonderful job taking care of Taylor and his needs. I remember having to change Austins dressing and it took awhile to remove the primapore because we always used the wisk, but it was worth it. His skin was never irritated and he was not quite as grumpy. I also had to do Austins shots. I hated it. He would try to jump and the needle would scratch his skin or he would swing around and make me squirt the medicine everywhere. I would be in tears with sweat pouring down my face. He was such a fighter! Now I would do anything to go back and do anything he needed! Keep up the great work. I am so proud of how well Taylor is doing.

You remain in my thoughts and prayers daily,

Tina Baker

Thinking of you. Hope your stay in NY is uneventful and everything goes smooth. Try to have some fun while there. Give Taylor a big "War Eagle" for me. It's almost football season. Seems impossible, doesn't it?

I can't believe the baby wouldn't move its feet!! Atleast the baby is growing, that's what's important, even though we're all going to continue to be in suspense, especially you guys! I'm glad Taylor had such a wonderful time at the OB office! That's so funny. I'll be thinking of you guys and praying for you.

OOOOOH SHOOT! I was just waiting to click that button to find out! I was sitting here thinking...now do I really think it's a boy or a girl? Well, maybe next time. I know you were hoping to find out today though. The stories you tell about Taylor are so cute! I can just see him doing the things that you describe. He will learn to share with the baby...he may remember the time when he was at the hospital and that child trying to take a toy from him....you said he gave it up and then cried! He'll do fine, they always do and just LOVE those babies when they get here. Taylor, you will be such a BIG boy when the baby arrives, a BIG BROTHER! That baby will have such a brave and sweet brother to learn from. You will have to he or she all you know. Well, so much for baby news today! I will check on yall later......love to Taylor! Cathi

While babies in utero sometimes like to play "hide and seek," the doctor will probably be able to tell if Taylor will have a brother or sister. We found out Emerson was a boy right at 17 weeks, and once he decided to cooperate, there was no doubt that he was, in fact, a boy! :)

Alan said to talk to Amtrak about taking the Crecent to New york. It will probably be cheaper than flying, safer, and more comfortable with the baby. Alan says it takes about 16 hours, leave about 5 pm and get there about noon the next day. Go to Amtrak.com for info. Plus Taylor will love the train! *****Check "New E-mail" *********

Get well and come back to see us again. I am sure Mr. Curtis would let you ride in his Gator again.

Hi Taylor! My little boy is at Day +126 today-very close to you. He was diagnosed in the beginning of Oct. 2002. His birthday is Oct. 18th, 2000. When is yours? We were not able to get the 3F8 antibody. Unfortunately, at the time MSKCC was too busy. We are traveling to MSKCC for a second surgery with Dr. La Quaglia. We should be there Aug 11th-25th or so. Will you be there too? We would LOVE to meet you. You seem like such a cutie pie! If your mom or dad get time maybe they could e-mail us? Take Care! Sincerely, Debbie Hume

So glad to hear that the counts are staying in the good range and that blood was not needed. Ellie and I went to the cancer center today and there were 7 children undergoing treatment. At one time they were all trying to pet Ellie at the same time so we had to start taking turns. She still walked with the children back to the treatment rooms. It breaks my heart to see so many children fighting this terrible disease. I continue to read your site ... just don't have time to post something everyday. My prayers are with you.

Hey Taylor!!! my name is Laurie and my son, Caleb who is four is in Childrens Hospital for Neuroblastoma, he was diagnosed with this February 24, 2003. But he was born with Hirschsprungs Disease which is a colon problem they didn't find it until he was about a month old when he almost died in the emergency room. He had to wear a colonostomy for six months and was delayed with a lot of his motor skills because of hospital stays and he also has asthma, tracheomalachia but he is doing okay with all of that. He had his colon attached back together and doing okay. Me and dad (my husband) was pretty shocked when he was diagnosed with this cancer, we couldn't believe it!! Caleb has a five year old brother who has Hirschsprungs Disease too and has to take medicine for his. He had to wear his colonostomy for nine months about two years ago. Stay strong, and have a lot of faith in God. Caleb has came a long way but that's because of prayers and faith. Write me back and let me know how you are doing. Caleb is doing okay, he is getting a transplant on Tuesday, we are here for a month. let you go just remember to keep your chin up, up, up!!!

I am so glad to hear of the good news with your pop's scan. At least that's one things off your mind for your next trip to NY. This time when you go back, you'll be pros at NYC life since you have experienced it before. This time it won't be so scary and different. Has he played with the bear yet? He will have a new friend to take to NY with frog. By the time you are finished in NY, you will have to pack the kitchen sink! Hope your feeling good these days...are you going to find out the sex of the baby? Report as soon as you know! (unless your going to keep it a secret for a surprise later!) I didn't find out either time and wanted it that way...kind of made the nine months worth the wait. Kisses and (((HUGS))) to Taylor! Take care! LOVE, CATHI

You plate is really full now, but you can handle it, you have up to this point and have done great. Your dad will be calling "nurse Kim" for info and uplifting words.

Hello Watts Family! You have no idea who we are except that we are in the "neuroblastoma family" as well. I read your message on Aaron Hunter's website and thus visited Taylor's website. What a helpful and informative site! Great job! I have to tell you it was a bit ironic to find out that Taylor was diagnosed the same day as our Emma Grace, now 2.10 yrs - also with stage 4 neuroblastoma. Emma Grace started her treatment @ St Jude on Oct 13th. She has had 6 rds of chemo, surgery, stem cell transplant, 16 rds of radiation and now, the Accutane. She is doing very well and we heard the "remission" word about 4 wks ago which was certainly an answer to prayer. We met Aaron when we first started at St Jude in fact, we had the same stem cell transplant birthdays. We were next door neighbors at Ronald's house and just recently finished our radiation tx. We have been home since last Thursday with 5 more retinoic acid tx to go. If you get the chance, please feel free to email me as I would love to visit with you. Trust me, we certainly realize that time is a precious commodity and getting in touch with folks isn't always as easy as it seems. We will pray for Taylor's healing and trust God is in full control. Thanks again for sharing such a wonderful website! May God Bless! Trish Hampton - better known as "Emma Grace's Mom" ha! (we somehow lose our own identities in the medical world, eh? ha!)

Thanks for checking in with us and for signing Morgan's book. I have not done an update in a while because truthfully, there is nothing to report. Our life has been very normal and boring since we came back from NY. We have not even seen a doctor in the last 10 days. We are going to clinic tomorrow for labs and I will do another update tomorrow. Morgan will also have her HAMA blood drawn tomorrow so we will know soon whether or not we are heading back to the big city.
We hope all is going well for you.
Take care and God bless!

Just checking in to read the latest with Taylor... I know he must be enjoying being back at home. Ellie and I went to the cancer center today thinking we would see one child... but there were four!!! I hear there are several more new patients starting treatment soon. Perhaps one day we will go for a visit and hopefully no children will be there being treated for cancer. Will pray for Friday.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi! Hope your enjoying being home and away from NYC! They don't have much hospitality do they? I have never been there, but I have heard that they would just as soon walk all over you rather than speak or dare help! Poor little Taylor, his schedule has been so interrupted, he doesn't know where he will be sleeping or going next. I hope this is all over for you real soon with no recurrance. This way you all can live a normal life again. Glad all was well with your doctor visit! Take care and I will check in later! Love and many hugs to Taylor....Love, Cathi

I am still coughing and now sneezing...and I still sound like a frog. I'm not going to croak (sorry:-)), but I am only staying away because I am afraid I might be a carrier.
Glad you are home where Milo's tea is available to everyone and your accent is the norm.
Let me get well and we will go over to Milo's and see them bottle your tea. They said they really wanted you to come.
Take care, and when i am well I'll be over.

The rest of them are at the beach...Tina and Meagan included. She needed to get away. You should go somewhere just to relax too....well, i guess just being at home is enough for now!

Just how late did you keep Guh up last night (or uh this morning)?!?!? I know she was very glad to see you too!! I'm glad all your "stuff" in NY is finished for now.

So glad to read that you are home. Morgan does the same thing whenever we return from NY -- runs through the house getting reaquainted with all of her toys. Meanwhile, I am about to fall over from being so tired and she is still going strong. I assume as long as both kids are HAMA negative, we will see you the next time we are in NY (July 28). We are looking forward to seeing you again, but not going back to NY. But, we do what we have to do . . . right?

Hey, Just a quick note....I was with a friend the day of Austin's services and we stopped by Wal Mart (who doesn't?!) anyway.....she has a baby and she had diaper rash real bad. She had been looking for a cream everywhere and couldn't find it. Well, there in the baby section we found it. I think it was called Butt Balm. I will email her to be sure, but she bought two because it works so well and she couldn't find it in Atlanta. If you can't find any when you get home, let me know and I will look in Pensacola and send it to you. Take care...Love, Cathi

I even walked to a NYC deli by myself at night!And Pam and I made it through the Atlanta AND La Guardia airport!! How brave are we?

Taylor, MAMA and Jeanna arrived home safetly. You were such a brave little one while in the hosiptal. It just broke my heart to leave you this morning. For everyone that has used Children hospital stand up and shout. we are all proud to have such a wonderful and caring hosiptal and all the staff that worked on 4 tower and stem cell. We new that you were special but now we appreciate you even more. Yes the State of Alabama has a wonderful Children Hospital in Birmingham. I will say a few of the staff Sloan Kettering were nice the child life center is very nice and they have aobut 4 people on duty for the one floor they did take up some time with lyou. Mary your nite nurse was also concerned about you she checked on your blood pressure about every 30 minutes. But other staff were very inconsistenent with their answeres and statements. I don't think they new how knowlable Jim and Kim are regarding you disease. You knew answers that they did not know. I think they were shocked that you new so much. Taylor they just don't know your mom and dad. They look out for you in every way if they don't understand they question and research the answers. OH as Cathy said any one on the road Friday between 8:15pm and 9:15pm on I20/59 best look out PAPA will run over them. to get to the airport There's not nothing that will stop him fro m picking you up. Loooook Out every one. Love you all MAMAMA

Dear Jim, Kim, Taylor, and Jeanna, too!
Hi! This is Bonnie, Jeanna's librarian friend who lives in NY. My husband has to come down to Sloan on Thursday for a checkup with his radiation oncologist. Jim has recovered from his tongue-based cancer that had spread to his lymph nodes, thanks to the wonderful care he got at Sloan Kettering from his medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, surgeon, and the teams of pain doctors, infection teams, nutritionists, and even a swallowing team! Jim is now back to work as a NY State Trooper, something we never even dared hoped for when he was in the depths of treatment at Sloan and things looked so desperate!
We're hoping to connect with you just briefly to say hi, if possible, and I'm hoping to meet Jeanna, if she's still in town. Please let me know if that would be ok by e-mailing me at tangle222@aol.com. Although we haven't sent any greetings since that shamrock card way back when, we HAVE been following your progress here and sending you lots of prayers. I'll also stop by the Sloan blood center and donate a pint for Taylor when we're down there, even if we don't get to catch up with you. If he doesn't wind up needing it, there surely will be someone else who does.
I can tell you from experience that there will be LOTS of ups and downs along the way... you just have to hang in there. This, too, shall pass! And there are rainbows waiting for you on the other side! I promise!! Here's wishing strength to you all!
love,
Bonnie

I'm so sorry I haven't stopped by your site in quite a while. I was out of town and didn't have access to a computer. I am traveling a lot this summer, so I will stop by when I can.

My puppy has been having a fit everytime he hears one go off. Tell Taylor for Tanner's birthday today that I gave him a little bowl of Blue Bell banana split ice cream and I put a Winnie the Pooh with a birthday hat on top! I took his picture with it and then more of him eating it! I will send them to him when I get them back. Here's to a better tomorrow! Take care Taylor and I will look in on you tomorrow! Love you!

He will enjoy it, but I bet he's exhausted when it's all over with. Maybe you won't have to wait forever to go to bed! It was good to read that he is tolerating this treatment so well....hopefully a sign of good things to come.

Glad to hear that everything is going so well for Taylor. I hope that he begins to have a regular bedtime. Know that those 1 a.m. days make it really tough for you. Read about Patrick... can you send me some information... did he have a website or do you have an address for his family? Stacey from HIP and I would like to send a card to the family. Just email me if you have the information. Hope that tomorrow is a great day for Taylor. I bet you will enjoy being in the Big Apple for the 4th...have fun!!! Love, Ms. Nena and Ellie

Hello strangers! I know you think I have fallen off the face of the Earth! We have had my husbands 20th year class reunion and have done nothing but run! We didn't even know there was a tropical storm upon us...we didn't stay home long enough to even watch the news. I'm so glad Taylor's pain is minimal and the side effects aren't too bad on him. He is so little to be having to go through this, it just breaks my heart. I know he doesn't understand, but one day he will. Hope your keeping your strength up Kim and are able to get some rest...even if you do have to FINALLY fall asleep and leave him up in the bed! We ALL have had to do this at one time or another!! I will check in later....there is a storm blowing up here now, so I'm getting off this computer! take care.....kisses and (((HUGS))) to the little hero! Love, Cathi

Taylor, I am thinking of and praying for you. I know you do not understand what is going on and why you are hurting so much, but when this is over you will be healed!! I thank God for putting his healing hands on you and for giving you the strength to bear the pain. Kim and Jim, I pray for you because I know it is so hard for you to see your precious son go through this pain and suffering. I pray it will be over soon and you can come home for good with your son that is healed from that terrible disease. With my love, Roberta

Taylor, we are cheering you on down here in Alabama. You are being such a brave little boy and I am so proud of you. I know that Austin is too.

Kim and Jim, it is so hard to watch our precious children hurt and I am praying that tomorrow will be as painless as possible. You have been so steadfast with your love and dedication and Taylor can feel your love. Keep on keeping on. I am so proud of both of you.

I prayed for Taylor on Austins webpage the other night... I just changed his name to Tyler. Sorry!!! I need to pay more attention to my typing.

Please let me know if you happen across "Balto" in Central Park. There is a memorial there in honor of Austins favorite sled dog. I know that he has had his wish granted by now, he has been 'mushing'.

All my love,

Tina, Austins mommy

These insurance companies beat all I have ever seen as far as what they will and will not cover. They will cover Viagra and things like that, but want to deny this?! It infuriates me to no end. Oh well, as long as you got the news you wanted...don't let it weigh too heavily on you....that baby in there doesn't need to get stressed out. Take care and have a great day! Love, cathi

Great test results...we just pray the results will be negative on the rest of the tests!!! Sounds like Taylor is having a ball seeing everything. Ellie and I went to the cancer center today and there was only one child having treatments. He was 7 yrs old and was so afraid of dogs that we couldn't convince him that Ellie would not hurt him. You should have been there to show him how Ellie loves children. Thinking and praying for you. Ms. Nena and Ellie

I am SO happy with the test results...only a few more to go! I will be praying for the same results. I am also glad to see the pictures posted...they are really good. I will be looking for more! I want to see the one of him with the fireman. Don't ALL little boys love sirens, and cop cars, fire trucks, heavy equipment etc?! I think they could sit and watch that all day. He certainly will have his fill of it up there! Give him a big hug from me and I will check on you all tomorrow!!!! Love, Cathi

Well, it looks as though you have seen the big city! You also told me a couple of things that I did not realize. i did not know that you couldn't go in the Statue (sp) of Liberty now and I did not know you couldn't take pictures at ground zero. Glad Taylor is taking it all in and enjoying himself. I am so sorry that he was in pain though,,,,that BREAKS my heart! He is so little to be going through all of this...it isn't fair is it? Life sometimes isn't fair....i figured that out with Austin, such a little guy so full of life with so much to give. Lots of prayers coming up north for all of you! Have fun, take care and I will check in tomorrow! Love, cathi

Hi Taylor, Mom and Dad, Just checking in to see how you are doing in the Big Apple. From today's update, it sounds like you all have really seen most of the tourist spots. I am glad you had a chance to see everything on a pretty day. Ellie and I will be going to the cancer center in the morning. I don't think there are any children having radiation right now but someone may have started since our last visit there. I pray that one day there will not be any children having to have treatment for this awful disease of cancer. Thinking and praying for you. Ms. Nena

Hey Taylor, Kim, and Jim!! We have been on vacation at the beach for a week, and I feel like we've just stepped out of the Twilight Zone! I've kept up the prayers, but didn't have internet access. Sounds like you guys are traveling pros! To think I was worried about the trip! Taylor's charm knows no state lines, so New York - look out for some of the best Southern charm Alabama has to offer! Have as much fun as you can. Maybe one day you can show us country folk around up there! Just don't lose that southern drawl! Love you all!

Good morning all! We are missing you so much, you just don't know. Suddenly taht 16 hour drive doesn't seem so long.
The wonderful folks at Milo's (Hello Doug Owens!) are going to box up some more tea for you on Monday and we are going to pick it up and ship it to you. They are packing it in Blue Ice for us and everything. We need to introduce the good people of NYC to the goodness of Milo's tea.
Take care of yourselves and especially our little buddy. We love you!

What a beautiful son you both have. I just listened and viewed Taylor. My heart and prayers are with you all three at this time. I will pray Taylor is well enough to receive his treatments that you want him to have.
A prayer warrior for the three of you. I have a grandson in Florence, ala just about Taylor's age. In Christ, bjprince

I am a Donor Recruiter for the American Red Cross in Montgomery Alabama. I have been praying for Taylor and for each of you over the past months and yesterday my supervisor referred me to your website. What a blessing! My family and I can now pray more specifically for each of you. Thank you for sharing your struggles and your successes so openly with us. Seeing photos of Taylor reinforces the reason I do what I do everyday...blood donations are not about numbers, pints or statistics, but about people with names, faces and families. Rest assurred that I will do my very best every day, trusting the Lord for the results, to make sure that the blood is there for Taylor (and the many, many others in need)...the right product, at the right time, every time!

Hi Watts Family,
So glad to read that you made it to New York -- we stayed at the Ronald McDonald house there also, so I was laughing when I read your entry about the grocery store and the thermostat in the room! Best of luck on your scans and getting into the study. I will be thinking of you all!

Oh my gosh! I couldn't even imagine what you are dealing with up there. Makes us appreciate Alabama that much more! At least it's just for a short time and hopefully you will be on your way back with a healthy little guy! We are all praying really hard for all of you. I know it's got to be hard to go to a new place and face the unknown, but you will get through it. When the Barnes get there, they can show you the ropes and at least you'll have new friends there to visit with. Take care, have fun and kiss the little man for me! Got your stuff yesterday! Thanks, I'll fix it up! Love, Cathi

Hello from Molly the Happy Housesitter! Pam and Jeanna came by and got the tickets and the bed and left Kim's car and the keys. But I won't need to use it. Have my own transportation here already. Jeanna got her Sweet Home Alabama DVD because Roberta wanted to borrow it. Thought I'd tell you so you wouldn't look for it later. Pam and Jeanna are overnighting some things to you.
Let me know if there is anything you need me to do at the house while I'm here.
This is perfect for me since I am out of school. I am enjoying the solitude.
take care and give Taylor a kiss for me.

Taylor, Like PaPA it was very hard to let you go and get on that airplane, but I know you will be getting the best treatment in NYC. When you were first born I could just jump in my car and drive to Auburn to see you Well I thinks NYC if muuuuuch further. I could give your Aunt Jeanna a call & ask I her if she wanted to take a ride & of course she would always say yes that was only a 2 hour drive. Also I wanted you to know I am proud to say I have the best grandson every, You always brighten my day. Just the little things that you do. Like the Sat. mom & dad went to Fairhope, you fell asleep holding my hand, oh! don't tell them were you slept we have to keep some secrets from them, can't let them know every thing now can we. You are a very special young man and I am extremely proud to say you are my grandson. You also have very special parents. Your mom never has lost her patients with you through this hole ordeal, she is wonderful with you. You'r dad (my son) has been amazing too!(oh don't let him know I said that). The next 3 weeks will be very long wihtout being able to see you I just hope they go by fast. Just might have to find out just how far NYC is. Love always. ma momma, G Mom, PAPA moma, Oh tell mom and dad to give you a big kiss for me and don't you wipe it off.

I promise not to send any more emails after this one....but I forgot one of my very favorite Central Park features for children and that is the Carousel, which has wonderful vintage, painted horse from the turn of the century. A ride is $1. Two additional Broadway shows are The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, if you haven't seen them somewhere already. Also, a trip to Disney Store, FAO Schwartz or the VERY large Toys R Us at Times Square(complete with a ferris wheel indoors)might be fun for Taylor. Okay, as I said, I promise to stop now.
Again, feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Fairhope, - Tuesday, June 17, 2003 11:01 PM CDT
P.S. I forgot you had asked about entertainment for a small child in New York. There are a number of things in Central Park - the Zoo, the Children's Zoo, a Marionette Theater, storytelling time, canoes to rent and row on the lake (also bikes to rent and MANY playgrounds, but don't know if those would be appropriate?). There are a lot of sculptures of interest to children--Balto, Alice in Wonderland, Hans Christian Anderson and the Ugly Duckling, etc. and there is a shallow body of water called Conservatory Water where you can rent remote control model boats or just watch other people do it. There is also a "Catch & Release" Fishing program if that is of any interest at all.

There are probably a couple of Broadway shows that are good for children, one in particular is A Year with Frog and Toad. There are a variety of storytelling, shows, films and other children's event every week. It is good to pick up a TIME OUT NEW YORK weekly magazine and review the KIDS section as well as the KIDS section in NEW YORK MAGAZINE, also a weekly.

Hope this helps.

New York, NY USA - Tuesday, June 17, 2003 10:45 PM CDT
In response to an inquiry from Jeanna Dennis about NYC transportation:

I live on Central Park South in NY and even though we have a car, we mostly just use it outside of the city. I take the subways and buses most of the time, but also do my share of taxi rides. I actually like the subways the best (I can get to about 8 different lines within 2 blocks of our apt.) because they go just about everywhere I ever need to go, are cheap, fast and not subject to traffic jams. To ride subways or buses you need a Metrocard with computer strip that you can buy in the subway station in various denominations and usage options. For the bus, you can also use exact change (coins only), but not on the subway. You can get free transfers from subway to bus, if the subway stop is not quite as close to your destination as you would like. A subway ride one way is $2 per person including a transfer to a bus. (Sometimes I go one way on subway and return by bus, saving $2.) A one way bus ride is also $2 and you can transfer to another bus free, but not to the subway. The bad news is that the location of Memorial Sloan-Kettering is the Upper East side between 67 & 68th Street on York Avenue. (I'm not sure of the address of the Ronald McDonald House.) The closest subway station is 4 very long blocks away at 68th and Lexington. There is however a bus that runs down York Avenue both ways (the M31 Bus) that goes South and then turns East on 57th Street would get you within 2 blocks of most major subway lines. (Avenues go N/S, Streets go E/W and Fifth Avenue is the dividing line betw. E/W)

You can buy unlimited ride Metrocards for the Subway and Bus $7 for a one day, $21 for a 7 day pass. Each person would have to have one of these. OR you can buy one regular Metrocard in any denomination you want from $4 Up and multiple users can ride with that one card--you just have to swipe it through for each person riding. For each $10 you buy on the regular Metrocard, you get a bonus $2 added (a free fare) If all of that sounds too complicated, it's probably my fault. Once you get the hang of the system, it's really pretty easy and efficient, too. You should definitely get a subway and bus map if this appeals to you at all.

Taxis are pretty easy to get and start with a base of $2 on the meter when you get in the door. The meter increases 30 cents for every 1/5 mile and also when idle in traffic (I think every 90 seconds or something like that). The good part is that all the people in the taxi (max 4) ride for one fare. SO, maybe this option will appeal to you more
One thing that you should know, however, that just giving the driver an address will not always get you where you want to go quickly. It is best if you can say "I want to go the 243 Lexington at the corner of 34th" or "220 East 23rd Street between Second and Third Avenue." Most landmarks and tourist sites are pretty well known, so you should be okay on those with just the name or address.

I will stop at this, in order not to confuse you any further. Feel free to email me if you want more info or even help while you are in NYC. (I'm a pretty cheap tour guide!) Good luck with EVERYTHING!

All good wishes,
Susan Chagrin

Hi Kim, I am really sorry that I could not get back down to the cancer center to be with Taylor. My prayers will be with Taylor as he goes through this next phase of getting well..... and for you as you deal with all the new "stuff" and learning your way around NYC. Hopefully you can update frequently so we will know how everything is going for both of you. Love, Ms. Nena and Ellie

Kim,

I have looked in a couple of times but never signed the guestbook. Thank you so much for all of the support you have shown me, my family and especially Nathan. I miss him so much. I look back and know I was just as busy while Nathan was sick. It still amazes me when I see other parents in the middle of the greatest fight of their lives. The drive, the dedication and the love show through the exhaustive days, hospitalization and treatment sessions. And on top of that you took time to encourage Nathan, support my family with kind words and console me. There really aren't enough words to explain the special kind of person you are. Thank you. I think of Taylor and am praying for his full recovery.

You are in our thoughts and prayers as you begin this new
journey towards Taylor's complete healing. Here is my prayer for you...Dear God, please touch this little boy with your healing hands. God, make him whole again and free from this monster. God, be with Taylor and his mom as they travel to NYC. God, be with the doctors. Please take their hands and cover them with the healing power only you can provide. Lord we pray when Taylor and Kim return home they can have a normal life as they await the birth of the new baby. Lord we pray this baby will be healthy. Lord give Kim and Jim the strength they need to get through each day. You have already blessed them so much but Lord they still need you. We give you all the praise, honor and glory, Lord. Amen
Be safe and have faith in God. Whatever be His will, trust in him.

Hello Taylor and family,

This is Christy, Ally's mom. We just wanted to drop in and say hello. I am glad you are doing well. You seem to have a very hefty appetite. It seems to always help us moms when their kids eat good. I really like Taylor language. Ally just says ma-ma and da-da and of course paw-paw. She mumbles alot and maybe those mumbles will turn into Ally language. I hope you are having a good day and if I don't get to write again I hope you have a great trip to NY. You tell mom and dad that Ally and I say hello. Ally will be in @ 4-tower on Wednesday for chemo so keep us in your prayers. Talk to you again soon. God Bless!!!

Kim, I'm a friend of Nena Moon and she asked me to let you know why she won't be able to see Taylor this week. Please be sure that she in o.k. but she is in the hospital. She went in last Friday with a fever that they couldn't determine a reason for. Since then, this morning in fact, they believe it's an infection in her knee where she had an injection of some sort last week. I think it might have been cortisone but I'm not sure. Anyway she wanted me to let you hear from her and to let you know that she'd be in touch as soon as she could.

When my little girl, Katie was little, she couldn't say Ginger (my step mom) so she picked up NuNu and still today at 12, she calls her that. Taylor is doing so well with all of his treatments...THANK GOD! Continued prayers for a speedy, full recovery so he can go back to a "normal" life and so can the rest of you. Check in later!

Taylor, have you been getting in the tub every night? I don't have a tub right here where we are living, just a shower and how I miss my tub! The day our house gets finished, I have told my husband......DO NOT DISTURB me and if you need to find me, I will be soaking in the tub for hours! I hope your having fun and enjoying yourself.

MY, MY, the temper is FLYing isn't it?! Can't you just see him in the back seat screaming about that fly on his hand?!!!!!!!!! He wasn't so mean tempered then was he? What would have been great is if you had of had a camera and could have gotten that on film......video recorder would have been even better, you probably would win the $10,000 and that would come in handy now! Oh well, at least after all of this all of you still have a sense of humor. Your making the most of a difficult situation and it will show in the long run. Taylor knows the unconditional love you have for him. If he doesn't now, he will. Glad to know your almost outta there and on the way to NY. I hope you will have a way to communicate with us while your gone. Oh, yeah, you have a laptop don't you? I HOPE you take it! I read your update on the way home from Fairhope. I enjoy going over there, but I didn't for those 2 days. Glad you at least got to see the beach while you were here. I know it made Tina's day to see the two of you. Take care and I will check on Taylor tomorrow! Love, Cathi

Hi friends, We're just checking on our little buddy. Glad to hear you are all doing so well with his treatments. Such a blessing!!!

We're out of town right now, but my heart is with you all while you're grieving for Austin. So, so sorry. I understand completely what you wrote the other night about not planning this "season" of our lives. We'll never be the same.

May God bless you friends with many wonderful memories!

Good Morning! I see you haven't updated....guess your just way to busy! I bet Taylor is keeping you both hopping. I don't see how you get time to ever update! Is he still picking up his toys?! I am glad to see that the radiation isn't taking it's toll on him. I will check in later on you guys. I haven't slept 2 hours straight since Austin passed away, so I am catching naps when I can. Thank you for being Tina's friend. Love, Cathi

Hi Kim... glad that Taylor is enjoying his Biblical Kid... I always tell the boys that it is a Bible character and they seem to like that. Not many boys want someone else to think they are playing with dolls. I will tell the ladies that made his Kid (Covenant Kid) that he really liked it. I will send you copies of the photos when they come out of the camera. Hope to see you all again the first of next week. Love, Ms. Nena and Ellie

Kim, Jim & Taylor,
Just wanted you to know how special you all three are. God has special people he gives special children to and he really made the right connection with you three. Some people never know what it is like to really, I mean really love their child or children. And cherish each moment with them, they are always worried about the everyday things we lose ourselves in of life. That we think are so important to us and we lose sight what a special gift God has given us. I always say, I LOVED and ENJOYED my daughter from the moment I found out I was going to have her and she is now 27 years old with two of her own. But, for Taylor's grand parents I can say from being a Mimi twice now the love you have for that grandchild is so special and so good because you are a little bit older and wiser(maybe not) and can enjoy the little things that when you had your own children you felt like you just couldn't take the time. Thank God you are experiencing this now. Think how great the new baby will have it with such GREAT parents and a BIG BROTHER that will be able to teach him/her anything she ever wanted to know about life, courage and the will to fight. I know it may get to much sometimes but your attitude and love are what touches so may people. I really don't think you will ever know. Thank you for letting us be a part of your lifes and allowing us to LOVE Taylor.

It's now 4:41 am and I am still up after sending Tina a message. Decided to sign in and say hello! Hope all is great with all of you and I wish for you a special happy day today. I am going to send you a copy of the program for Austin's services through your email. It was so beautiful....both at the church and the cemetary. They had 3 groups of balloons that Tina, Jimmy and I think Meagan let go at the end of the service at the cemetary. One red balloon escaped from all of the group as if it were Austin saying....I'm here, I'm ok now. So sweet and yet so sad. Tina held up great for the whole endurance, but I know her hardest days are ahead. I know she will get through them though, but she needs to grieve her loss. I think I have done enough for both of us. It's hard to believe that my friend from K-4 all the way through life has lost her child that she longed for for so long. She wasn't supposed to be able to have children at all and went through alot to finally get both of them....I just am having a hard time understanding as I'm sure after reading your last entry, you both are too. Your trying to understand why you, why your child. That's what I'm trying to figure out about Austin. A 6 year old that loved life as much as he did, and for him to have done so well and was almost home in remission...it doesn't make sense does it? I hope one day to figure this all out for myself, but right now my heart aches for Tina and her family. Let me go get this information out to you. I know the words will touch your hearts as much as it did mine. Take care....Love and hugs to Taylor! Love, Cathi

Gosh Kim, you could almost publish that entry. Cancer does in fact put things into perspective, unfortunately. And slap bracelets, how could anyone forget!?

Dear Jim, Kim and Taylor, I am sorry I missed seeing you at the visitation. I got there at 3:05 and started looking for you ( I remember you from Taylor's pic page) and I never saw either of you. My girlfriend and I stayed until almost 4, then went on into Daphne to find something for me to wear tomorrow. Tina looks wonderful doesn't she? Her hair is darker and straight and it has NEVER been straight and was always a light blonde when she was a teenager. Tonya and Tara looked great too.....I haven't seen them in FOREVER. I wanted to meet you, but there were just so many people there, I could have missed you in the crowd. Taylor, you need to eat now son! How are you gonna build those muscles without food?! I bet you had lots of fun with your pawpaw while mom and dad were gone, but I know you missed them. We started to go to the Riveria Center today too, but went to Wal Mart and then into Spanish Fort to the other mall. The girl I went with today was one of my best friends growing up and I named my first child after her. We have been friends with Tina forever too and this was the first time we have all been together in 21 years. Bittersweet reunion....that's all I can say. I pray she will be ok, but I know it will take time and the hurt and pain will really never go away. We can only imagine. Well, you guys take care and EAT TAYLOR! Check in later.....love, Cathi

Uncle Bob and I just got back from the Beta Sigma Phi convention in Montgomery. So many people asked about you and said to give you a hug. They were talking about how strong and brave you are...and what wonderful parents you have. I gave out some little cards with you url, so you may start getting some BSP e-mails.
Here's a ((((((big hug))))))) from us.
We love you!

We have all been saddened by the news of Austin. I believed he was going to get his miracle, but God knew best. At least he is not suffering anymore, but that doesn't make it any less difficult for those left behind. Tina is a strong woman, but I know she will have her breaking point. She and Meagan will be great comfort to each other for their lifetime. I hope all is well with you all today. I bet Taylor has been up watching cartoons already. I hope that your week next week is a better one than you have been having! Take care and hug Taylor for me! Love, Cathi

Good Morning! Sorry I didn't get to sign in yesterday, I was having computer problems. I am so proud of you for sleeping in your own bed! Big boys need to sleep in their own beds and in their own rooms. Now you will have to teach the new baby to sleep in his or her own bed one day too. I hate you are having such problems with your appointments...it's bad enough that you have to be there in the first place, muchless having to deal with insensitive people. The pregnancy hormones probably aren't helping much either! You will get through it though....I HAVE FAITH IN YOU! I will be waiting and watching for the news that you are getting ready to go to NY. I wish you all the best and will keep the prayers going for Taylor and both of you. Take care...check on you later! Love, Cathi

Good morning T! Just wanted to check in to see how you are feeling today. The dump trucks are still out here working and as soon as I heard them crank up today, I said, I better go check on Taylor! You could sit in my yard and watch them all day. They have dumped now about 16 loads of dirt all up and down my driveway and the bulldozer is moving it back and forth to spread it out. They have in chuncks of concrete to put in huge holes we had wash out by our culvert too. My husband got on the bulldozer yesterday and knocked down a few trees.... I thought you would have loved to seen that! I hope you have a great day today and eat lots and lots! I bet you are putting some weight on. Take care and I will check in on you after while. Love, Cathi

Hello strangers! Sorry I haven't signed in for a day or so, but my hubby is off and we have been running everyday. He doesn't get much time off, so we try to make the best of what he does get. I don't blame you one bit over that hospital "mix up"....it's always your fault, your the one that has missed your appt and don't you just love it when they take others ahead of you if your late?! It's your right to get ugly if you feel like you should, it's your child. How would they feel if it were someone in their family. I think people that work in the health industry forget that we are people too. Good luck with the treatments though, I know he will do great! He is such a strong and inspiring young man! Hey Taylor, fallen off any dump trucks lately?! You would love being out at my house right now....there are 2 dump trucks out here, a backhoe and a bulldozer. (sp) We had a major road and driveway wash out with all the rain the other week and they are out there trying to fix it. Take care little guy and I will always check in on you! Love, Cathi

Hey Guys! Northwest Airlines also has a pretty good deal for patients at Sloan. They have a program where you can get reduced fares. You either get their 14 day fare regardless of when you buy the ticket or 50% off the regular fare. The best part about this program is that the tickets are fully refundable and can be changed without penalty. If you are interested in this, let me know and I will give you the number to call (it is different than the regular reservations number). I believe they also have a program called Operation Lift Off where they give donated frequent flyer miles to people needing medical treatment. You can find out about that on their website www.nwa.com
Also, the fee for the RM House can be waived. Contact the social worker, Diane Ianuzzi. If you need her number let me know.
I hope all is going well and I look forward to meeting in NY in June.

Hi guys. So sorry to hear about all the "Junk" you're having to put up with. Even if things go right, you're still going through the hardest thing in the world. But when things go wrong, because of someone's mistake, well, sometimes that's the straw that breaks!

I'll be praying for endurance for you. And a gentle spirit for those poor technicians. Don't they know what they're dealing with? Is their any other population more stressed than a cancer kid's parents? Oh, I hope you don't loose your cool on them. I hope I don't see you on the news again, except this time it won't be a blood drive.

Keep smiling. We're all praying & cheering for you & sweet Taylor!!

I can honestly say I know how you feel about having those tests come back positive. It's a horrible, horrible feeling because it's a horrible, horrible disease. HOWEVER! In the midst of the horror, fear, pain, anxiety, and never ending trauma, there are people around you who care for you and a God above you who loves you. You're not alone! (P.S. And yes, I ALSO think we need to organize a cleaning party!) :-)

Well I am not sure where to start first of all I didn't even realize till now your pregnant congratulations. I am so sorry for being so flighty. Anyway I pray for the best that all goes well with the radiation and that the abnormalities are taken care of with the antibodies I pray for your strength and pray for Taylor. I probably won't have time to check in in the next couple of days since we will be preparing for the stem cell rescue on Monday but I will keep you in my prayers. God Bless you all.

They truly want to do the very best job in helping Taylor get well. I know it was a trying time for you. I will try to get down to see you all the first of the week. Hopefully I can get there early enough that Taylor can play with Ellie beforehand and then he can walk her back to the treatment room. Hang in there mom.... Love, Ms. Nena and Ellie

Hello and happy Wednesday! I am so glad things are looking up and things are getting scheduled. The next step will mean another and another and soon you will be done. I hope your pre natal visit goes well...maybe Taylor can "help" the doctors with your tests! I just checked in on Austin and he is home for a while to see how he does. His WBC is high...keep those prayers up! I would love nothing more than to see these two kids beat this. Austin is such a wonderful, giving, caring child...it just seems as though he has been through such a tough time to give up now. He has come too far. Did you read the update where he gave his mom a diamond ring? That moved me to tears. Taylor, keep up the good work and take good care of frog. Your a good daddy to him! Check in later! Love, Cathi

We will be thinking of you. our hospital has not checked Sophias marrow since round 2 of her chemo treatment and they only test 2 sights, their standard policy.

Wow! Does this sound familiar or what? After Morgan's post-transplant bone marrow tests came back positive we were truly devastated. We all but gave up hope of her beating this terrible disease. People came out of the wood work telling us that this is not a very unusual. It just means that now you know for certain that doing 3F8 will be the best thing for Taylor. We will keep you guys in our thoughts and prayers.

Good Tuesday morning! Taylor, I just don't know what to make of all these fits you are having! I guess just being 2 is reason enough. Boy, your appetitie is sure going strong these days! That is wonderful....but you may have to go to weight watchers before it's all over with! I hope you get your email soon, I know your ready to begin this new leg of your journey so you can get back home. I have you in my thoughts everyday and I continue to pray for complete healing of Taylor. Love, Cathi

Hey Taylor how are you doing. It sounds like your moving along much better which is great news.

Hello Watts family-

I am a ped/neonatal nurse from Ohio who stumbled across your web page from reading your posts on babycenter. I also have a 28mo. old little boy. Your story is amazing and your son is so beautiful. I enjoyed looking at his pictures and seeing his smiling face despite his conditions. You are an inspiration and a testimony for what God has done in your lives. It was great to see how much faith and love you all have for the Lord through your struggles. I will be praying for Taylor and for you all (his family). Just stay focused on the Lord and what He is doing in your life through this and you can't go wrong. My family sends their love and faith your way!

GOOD MORNING TAYLOR! Well, what in the world could you be into this morning?! I know it has to be something good! I was out cutting grass ALL DAY yesterday so I wasn't able to check up on you. We left at 6:45 am and got home after 5. Then I went to get supper....I certainly wasn't going to slave over a hot stove after being out in the heat all day. We just got an Arby's here in Atmore and I was going there. We are always about 10 years behind here and not to long ago we got a Burger King. I have heard that Arby's has GREAT chicken fingers, you should try them. You could hold them in your hand and eat with your fingers! Mom is going to kill me for suggesting that! I am so glad that you are eating...that will help alot with your recovery. You have to be big and strong. Well, buddy, take care today and try to get into something! Check with you after while! Love, Cathi

Dear Jim, Kim, Taylor, and Baby # 2,

Hi. my name is Malissia Loucks, and I am originally from Alabama. In fact my daughter was born there too, and treated from a birth defect at Children's Hospital in Birmingham. I just wanted to let you know you will be in my prayers. My husband, Steve, and I found out that our daughter, Abigail, was suffering from neuroblastoma when she was 4 months old. Luckily, her's had only spread to her lymph nodes, and the surgeon was able to remove it all. Her tumor was the size of a medium orange. I read about how you finally found out about Taylor's cancer, and all about his treatment, and I can relate to a lot of things that you said. My daughter was born with an unattached esophagus and then shortly after was diagnosed with cancer, and you can't help but wonder why me? Luckily Abby is now in remission. I just want you to know that I am praying, and I hope that God gives you strength, and that he heals Taylor. May God be with your family.

Hey Taylor! Just wanted to see how things are going. We have had some bad weather down here for the past two days and when I got up this morning, our whole little community out here in the country was almost under water! We live up on a hill so we weren't totally flooded, but as you go down our driveway, you go downhill....well,....we almost didn't go anywhere! We had a MAJOR washout down there by the water....I need you to come with some big machines and dirt and do some work! I know you like tractors and road machines...all little boys do. I have had to turn the computer off due to lightening and then I went to school today, so this is my first time to check up on you. Glad to see things are still good, but you do need to eat or you will loose those muscles that I KNOW you have! Be sweet and I will be back on later! Love, Cathi

Hi i am glad to hear he is getting healthier. The no bactrum thing is due to low platelets,so I was told. sophia had a monthly dose of pantamodine(sp) in place of the bactrum. I found that easier as she does not like the bactrum. Sophia is doing well and off to NYC to MSKCC in June. Take care

I know sometimes you feel that your days will never end, but just keep looking towards the future. Seems as though you have a great support system and wonderful family who is always ready to lend a helping hand. That means ALOT! Kiss Taylor for me and I will check in on him tomorrow.

That was sort of my problem yesterday...I needed a pair of lavender shoes for a class reunion to match a dress. Well, I went to every shoes store in both malls and other places. I FINALLY found a pair that are Lilac colored and will match! The things we have to have! It's like going on a treasure hunt or rather scavenger hunt! Taylor, your sleeping habits are quite erratic aren't they?! Poor mom or dad during the night...!!!!

He may be scared on the plane and need a big boy to hold him! I hope he finally got better...with Dr. Taylor taking care of him, how could he not be better?! Better go watch these children, I have 6th graders today and my own daughter is in this class. She's good though, so I don't have to watch her! She just made yearbook staff here at school for her 7th grade year. I'm really proud of her! I'm proud of you too because you are such a brave little guy and your tests results were so great!

Hello to Taylor's family:
Just dropping in to see how things are going for Taylor. We lit a candle for him at our service of thanksgiving last Thursday night. We wanted to gather friends and family to give thanks for all of God's love throughout the whole cancer ordeal and part of the service was lighting candles for each child we have known (even just over the internet, like you!) who has battled cancer. It was incredibly touching. I am so glad that Taylor is through this difficult part of treatment! For us, that was the last of the worst stuff and although it was still quite a while before things seemed more normal, at least we spent alot more time at home and Jackson felt good more of the time. I hope it is the same for Taylor! Take care and God bless,

Christine Hay <barryhay@attbi.com>

Hello to Kim, Jim and Taylor... I work at AmSouth and started following your website after getting an e-mail at work about a blood drive for Taylor. I haven't made an entry into your guestbook before because I feel like this is something personal for your family and friends that you have been gracious enough to share with the outside world. I enjoy the updates on Taylor and your personal touches of life with a two year old. The reason I am writing today is God did not allow me to sleep last night as he was calling me to pray for Taylor, Austin, and Deanna's family. So I guess that brings me into the realm of family - the family of God. Take care - enjoy baseball tonight - the best sport ever!

Good morning! I'm anxiously waiting to hear about you throwing the ball at the game. I sure hope they gave it to you as a souvenier (sp). That would be neat especially if you had all of the players sign it. I know you were a hit with everyone there. Hope your feeling good today and pulling out lots of toys...which I KNOW you will put away! Let us know about last night! Check in later! Love, Cathi

Hi Taylor,

Glad to hear that you are getting stronger each day. Congratulations on soon becoming a big brother. I hope that your Mommy feels good.

So, you might be going to NY soon, huh? Well, that'll be exciting! If you stay at the Ronald McDonald House like I do when I'm in NY, I think you'll find lots of other kids just like us -- having had chemo and transplants and now getting antibodies, and more importantly, kids who know that the number one rule is to have fun.

The best part about the antibodies is that it doesn't take away my appetite or make my blood counts low, and it even lets my hair grow. Even if it hurts (and it does sometimes), it doesn't hurt for long and the nurses give some good medicine to take away the pain.

There are some neat things to do nearby, too. Just a few doors down from the RMH is a pottery painting place -- and you can do sand art there, too. The Childrens Museum of Manhattan isn't too far away, and neither is Central Park. If you like pizza, you might like my favorite nearby place: York's Pizza.

Go ahead and ask me anything; I'll answer it for you. Right now, I have a HAMA (human against mouse antibody) reaction, so I can't go back until at least July. That's when they'll test my blood again. If I get to go back, it'll be after that. I've been getting antibodies for years, on 2 different protocols because I had a relapse inbetween. But I'm NED now, thanks to the antibodies. Have fun!

Dear Taylor. Kim, and John, I am a friend of the Baker family in Fairhope and have seen the many entries you have made on Austin's website. I know they are a great comfort to Tina, Austin, and all of their many friends in the Fairhope area who are praying so hard for a miracle for Austin. I know you are a special boy like him, Taylor and I am sure there are many people praying for you and hoping your medical treatments go well. In the meantime, I was looking at your website and saw that you are going to throw out the first pitch at the Barons' game. How cool! I am a lot older tha you are and I've never been picked to throw out a first pitch at a game. I'm sure you're going to throw a strike. Have fun at the game.

Without all of the wonderful people like you that Pama has met, I don't think she could have survived all of this herself. We will continue to pray for Taylor. Now that we have been through this with Deanna, our family is certainly more aware of what all families go through when they have a sick child. God Bless You and your family (including your new addition. We will continue to check on you and will always hope for the best. Forever Deanna's Aunt Kay.

Hey friends,
I have been reading all of Taylors updates. I am so glad that he is doing better. I hope that he continues to flourish. He has such a grand spirit.
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Taylor will truly love having a brother or sister once she arrives. I am one of those odd people who LOVES being pregnant. I enjoyed both though I was huge. Kim, take care of yourself. We continue to pray for our little friend Taylor.
God Bless,

Tina

Hey! Happy Mother's Day! I just wanted to share something with you. I believe that Sloan Kettering does not like to poke kids too much. From what I have seen, I believe that they will put an IV in at the beginning of the week and leave it until the weekend. This way Taylor would only have to be poked at the beginning of each week of treatment. Just a little info that I thought you may find interesting.
I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful.

Happy Mother's day Kim! You have 2 very special reasons to celebrate this year....Taylor is doing well and the new baby! I think of all of you often during the day and have done so much praying for Austin, that I am exhausted. I don't understand some things, but I do know that God is stronger than this disease that Austin has and his family certainly deserves a miracle. Keep the prayers coming for Austin as I will keep them coming for Taylor! With all of us praying so hard, something good has GOT to come out of it! Take care and have a great day today! Love, Cathi

Happy Friday Taylor! Glad your mom pitched a fit and got you in today! Hey, it never hurts to show your backside sometimes. It is hard to keep a 2 year old happy and quite under normal circumstances, muchless in a hospital waiting room! I have heard a little about Austin and I am real angry at this point. I hate to be because I feel sure Tina has to have some peace about all of this. I feel so bad for her though, she has been through so much and now this is just too much. Keep praying for him though, you NEVER know what God has in store. He does perform miracles and I feel like he will perform one on Austin. He has come way to far and was doing so well, to just do a 90* turnaround. I am hoping for a miracle for Taylor too. I feel real close to all of you since I have been writing to you and want to see him well and home. Take care and I will check on him tomorrow. Love, Cathi

I am sorry to hear that you will not be able to do the antibodies at home. But, on a positive note Sloan-Kettering is a wonderful place to be treated and maybe we will finally meet. We are supposed to return to NY on April 18. They can do the antibody treatment through any kind of IV line, so you can go ahead and get the Hickman taken out. Morgan still has a port too so we are planning on taking her Hickman out as soon as she is off TPN. Will Taylor be doing radiation?
Prayers to you all!

Dear Taylor:
I read your entire web site, every single word on every single page. Your now in my mind and my heart for prayers that you will be comforted and find healing of this dreaded disease. I am pulling for you son to not only survive this life threatning illness but that one day you will become a well young boy able to growup and perhaps one day go to college on the Plains. You are a champion with your courage and an inspiring young many too anyone who reads this web site.
Now, for your loving parents and family. I don't know how you continue to do what you do for this child, perhaps only the love of a parent could survive what you have already endured, we trust God above will give each of you the strength, courage, and the sureness of his love for what you are doing to care for this fine young man. I pray God will grant you his understanding and that Taylor will win over this illness and that you can raise him to become a great man, he is already a great boy!

I hope everything goes well for you and hope that you find time to get some rest and good sleep throughout your pregnancy. I told Tina we had a bad storm here last night and I had turned off the computer, unplugged the phone lines and unplugged the computer itself. I can't risk loosing this thing to lightening...it's my lifeline! I had just gotten it back up this morning and didn't even realize they were back. I sure hope they find another successful treatment there for Austin. If they can't, I hope they move him elsewhere. Our children are our children, and we would all go to the ends of the Earth for them. Keep up the good work Taylor and try to eat more than the cheese off the pizza! I will check back with all of you later to see how things are going. Be good! Love, Cathi

What a shame for him...he was doing so well. I'm not loosing hope though. They are a strong bunch and very determined that he will beat this. I feel like he will too, it will just take a little longer. Thanks for your love and support of them! How are you doing today?

P.S. I held one of God's miracles (Gracie Coffey) in my arms today-how awesome!

I am so sorry to hear of Austin's setback. It breaks my heart,too. But he sounds like a fighter and he has such strong parents they will do what is needed to get him back into remission and then cured. It is only a setback, nothing else. When he gets back from Disney they will start anew in finding a cure.
Give Taylor a big hug for me and tell him NO FEVERS!

I am Benjy the traveling bear from Henry Barnard School in Enfield, CT. I am traveling across the country to different school libraries. I am visiting Hard Elementary library and the students told me about Mrs. Dennis' nephew, Taylor. I just had to visit the site.
Taylor, you are too cute. Keep getting better and eat and drink so you'll be as strong as a bear, okay?
I'll tell everyone about you as I travel around and maybe they'll visit, too.

You may just have a little artist on your hands...that would be great too! Have fun today little man! Check back when i get in tonight...Love, Cathi....P.S. Get on to Miss Tina when you see her....tell her to get on the computer at the clinic if they have one and FILL US IN!

Hey Taylor! I checked in yesterday, but didn't sign the book. I had to go out of town for the morning and got back just in time to unload my groceries, change clothes and go help my husband cut grass. We went to bed at 8:30! That's a first for me in a Loooong time! Seems like you are just doing wonderfully! I'm so proud of you for eating and drinking and now your walking around without being on your heels! You are a true miracle little Taylor and I am so thankful that you are going to be just fine! Keep that progress up and let us know about it! Check in later for an update! Love, Cathi

Hi Taylor!

I'm sorry I haven't been by to "visit" you on your site very much these past few days. I have had a very busy week and haven't gotten much done besides work, sleep (a little) and eat (a little). I do apologize!

I am so glad to hear that you are doing so well! I will keep praying that you continue on this upward trend!

Take care, little guy!

I hate Austin has been sick, they haven't updated yet, so I'm not sure what they decided to do or even what it was. I will keep checking on you sometime tomorrow...won't have computer access until late tomorrow afternoon, but I will be thinking about you! Be good! Love, Cathi

Taylor if your mom runs out of gum(excuse me-sticky) I'm sure there are plenty of us out here that will be sure you get more. Just be sure you put all the wrappers in the garbage can. Listen, you need to think of something good you would like to drink. Give your mom a big hug-she's the best and we need to be sure we all let her know that.

Congratulations Taylor! I got goosebumps when I read that you had eaten the marshmallows out of the cereal and some cheese! That is so exciting! I hope Austin has found something he wants to eat too. Tina hasn't been able to update since her computer is down. If you all hear anything, please post it on his site. THANKS! I am so happy to hear all is well, and hope the leg pain is due to grafting. That would be even more exciting news to report! You are doing so great Taylor, and we are all so happy for you and your family! Check in later, I want to see how your doctor visit went! Love, Cathi

HAPPY EASTER. I was glad to hear that Monday was still a GO.
I saw Jeanna & Bob at breakfast this morning & they said that they were going to see you today ,so I sent a package that they Easter Bunny left at my house by mistake. ( I think he was afraid of FROG ). ( Give him a hug & tell him to give you a BIG HUG for me) I hope the next time I write you will be at home in your OWN bed. Love, Nancy

Hey Taylor! Those white blood cells must be multiplying because they know the bunny is coming! I hate you can't be home for Easter, but as I said, he will find you! I hate that the doctor was rude to your grandmother. They all think you should just take whatever they do with a grain of salt and I'm sure it was hard for her to watch or listen. Some people have no bedside manner. You have been on my mind today and I told you I was leaving town for a few hours, but would check in when I returned. Glad to see there is GOOD news! Keep it up, your doing GREAT! You and Austin will be the talk of that hospital when you leave. You both have defied many odds.......Sleep tight and I will be on tomorrow afternoon. Love, Cathi

Taylor, I know your glad they have stopped your ear drops...I hated them as a kid and still do! They make me get the chills when they go to the bottom of the ear and it clogs up! I still to this day won't get my ears wet in the shower or in a pool because of the feeling of them so long ago. Kids don't forget, do they?! Hope your feeling good this afternoon....guess my prayer for appetite stimulation was overlooked! Maybe the Easter bunny will bring that along with lots of chocolate..just what you need....SUGAR! I hope whoever is staying with you this weekend gets a good rest and I hope you sleep well too. Check in tonight! Be sweet and play hard! Love, Cathi

- Thursday, April 17, 2003 11:52 AM CDT
Good Morning! Sorry to see that you have to stay longer, I know you were looking forward to going home tomorrow. The Easter bunny will find you there at the hospital though Taylor! Popcorn kernels? YUK! I like the popcorn, but the kernels have to go to the trash. I made some brownies last night and they were sooooooooooo good...you may want to try eating brownies and pringles like Austin did. That was all he had a taste for after transplant. Something sweet and salty. Then a good old COKE to wash it all down with! Glad to see that your doing well and got to take a real bath. I will check back with you throughout the day to see how things are going. I asked last night for a stimulated appetite today, so let's hope it happens! Be good! Love, Cathi

Just think Taylor....it won't be long until you have the run of the house again!! I'm so glad to hear that you are doing better. Please try to eat some so your mom and dad won't worry too much. Maybe you could have a tasting party or play a game and chart the kinds of faces you make when you taste different things.
Can't wait to hear that you are at home again!!

Dear Taylor, just wanted to say good night and I mean that literally for mom and dad! You and Austin just need to find something that you like and get it down, even if you have to swallow it so you can both go home. I will have you, mom and dad in my thoughts tonight and pray for peace, healing and a good night's rest for all of you! Check with you in the morning! Love, Cathi

Thinking of you all during this time. Please know you are all in my constant prayers. Keep climbing that mountain. I know how hard it is to be trapped in that hospital room for days on end.....just wait until you get to "bust out"!!! Praying that the busting out and going home comes very soon! Fight hard! Get those nasty bugs and show them who is boss!!!

Dear Kim & Jim.....it's Cathi again with a quick note to you both....I came across this today and all of you in B'ham crossed my mind. I have already posted it for Tina. "REMEMBER, AIM FOR PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION". AUSTIN IS THROUGH ALOT OF HIS ORDEAL, BUT THIS REALLY APPLIES TO YOU. Everyday brings new things to your life up there, not knowing what to expect or when to expect it. Each time Taylor puts that one foot in front of the other and moves forward, you will get that PERFECTION, but for now, you have to accept, cherish and celebrate the progress. Just wanted to pass this along and hope it helps you get through each day. Love, Cathi

Have a good evening and a restful night!

McCalla, - Monday, April 14, 2003 6:06 PM CDT
Hey! Hope you guys have had a good afternoon! Just a thought....what about him trying to eat something like a popsicle? It would be cold and may help numb his mouth and shouldn't taste bad. Maybe some like the red, orange, and purple that are nothing more than colored water. We used to live off of them when we were little and sick. Let me know if he decides to try one. Been thinking of you today and I am loving seeing all this good news that is being reported! Keep up the good work T!!!!! Talk with you later! Love, Cathi

Hello guys! Glad to hear that things are looking good, except for the no diapering! I can't believe he won't wear one, you would think the wetness bothered him.....oh well, what can you do with a determined 2 year old?! Hope his appetite returns, even if it is slight. A cookie here, a cheese stick there, as long as it is something. Glad to hear some of those lines are gone, it's hard enough to maneauver (sp) around with 1 IV in your arm. Hope you all have a great day and I'm real excited about all this new news! Prayers today for another good night and hugs to Taylor! check in after I get home. love, Cathi

Good morning friend,
I am so glad Taylor is doing well, each day is truly a gift. I guess we have an odd advantage over 'normal' families. We realize how precious life is, not easy at times, but a tresure to enjoy. I, too, am glad that we are friends, it sure helps on those difficult days. My dad once told me that throughout life you make new friends, and even lose others, that some will stay with you forever (like Cathi). I never expected to go through this journey but the friendships I have made will last a lifetime.
I hope today is a great day for Taylor!

Love,

Tina

Happy Saturday Taylor! Guess SOMEBODY was listening to me last night when I was praying for all of you to have a good night's sleep! I'LL DO IT AGAIN TONIGHT! I'm glad to hear your feeling better and trying to eat. Pizza doesn't even taste good to you????? Boy, that would almost be impossible to believe! THANKS FOR THE AUSTIN UPDATE! I guess dad doesn't know how to update us, so Tina does it when she gets back. I will let everyone know since they think something is wrong when there is no update. Taylor, I will pray real hard for those white cells to just multiply so you will feel much better and you can eat and play! Hope you had fun with your paw paw...I KNOW you did! Check in later tonight! Love, Cathi

Seriously though, you are to be admired for all you are going through. It has to be tough, but worth every minute of it. Your child is your child no matter what and any of us would do whatever we had to do to get them through this. He will read all of these entries one day when he's older and he will know the sacrifices that all of you gave to help him. Keep your chin up and SMILE!

Kim,

I am so glad you got to get out with us last night and most importantly that it made you feel better. I thought about Taylor tonight when Andrew said..."I can't brush my teeth or wear my retainer because of this ulcer on my lip from when I bit my lip last week". That is very normal and I thought if this bothered him that much, I can only imagine Taylor's discomfort. No wonder he is grumpy!!! Bless his heart! Always remember..."I can do everything through him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

A quote I want to share...
"Man can live for about forty days without food, and about three days without water, about eight minutes without air ... but only for one second without hope".

A Friend…
When you need something to cry on, you can use my shoulder...
When you need someone to listen, you have my ear...
When you can't find your way, my eyes will help to guide you...
When you reach out for someone, I'll always be near...
When your days are all rainy, I'll bring an umbrella...
When you really need a friend, remember I'll be here!

Call me if there is ever ANYTHING I can do!
Love,
Linda

I'm so glad you got out for awhile and also got some rest. I know a lot of the things that happen are not funny, but I sometimes have to chuckle a little bit when I read your updates. You have unique way of making some us feel good even when you don't feel so good yourself. I am praying that Taylor will be pain free and he will have good numbers next time. Oh yeah, I like Jim & Nicks too! Good food-good friends-just what you needed. God Bless!

I'm so sorry y'all are going through such a tough time...it would be bad enough without having to deal w/mouth sores! Can Taylor have something like a Icee? I would think the cold would feel good on his sores. Kim, that's great that you got out for a little while and got to have some fun. You deserve it! I'm praying for all of you!

Kim,
I am so glad you got away a little last night. When Bob read your post yesterday it broke his heart. You have been a rock through all of this, as has Jim, and he knew how fragile you must have been to write that. He isn't up yet this morning, but he'll be SO pleased to hear you got away for some R&R!
Give my little fellow a hug. I am calling this morning to set up a time to give platelets. If I am CMV neg they are Taylor's!

Just wanted to stop by and offer some encouragement during this difficult stage of your journey. Someday soon you will look back and wonder how you did it!! I send hope for patience, quickly rising counts, and for Taylor to feel more like himself soon. You ARE doing what's best; even though it's hard to see that now. Hang in there!

hi Taylor,

We just wanted you to know that we're thinking of you. We know that you might not feel so good right now, but just know that it will not last forever. Your mom might want to look at Chris' webpage history at around June 18th or so of 2001 to get a feel of how things went for him then. He didn't feel so good either, but he felt much better before too long. I know that he's older than you, but think of him as sort of a big brother who has been there. You will feel better before too long.

Hang in there!

Hi Kim, Jim, and Taylor!
I hope you all are doing as well as you can. Brett, Brooke, Meris, and I have been thinking about y'all and praying for y'all. I really admire your courage and strength- your daily notes are an incredible story of both.
I used to keep up with y'all through Nicole, but as you know she has followed her heart again and left Bham, Odyssey, and the kids she has taught for so long. Brooke turned 4 in January, and Meris turns 2 on April 14th. We like Odyssey, but it is sure not Morningstar - nor are it's teachers - they just are not warm and seem to hate talking to the parents. Please let us know how long y'all will be at Children's. If it is okay, I would like to bring Brooke to visit you and Taylor again. Let me know. Keep your faith up, and things will get better. We think of y'all often and wish you the best.
All of our love, The Gilliam Family - Margaret, Brett, Brooke, and Meris

Gosh. I wish I could donate platelets directly to you so that you could get through this particular moment. I do hope they find some platelets soon for you!

Kim,
Hang in there sweetie. Things will get better, I promise.
About the mouth sores, someone here at work suggested Chloraseptic spray in Cherry. It deadens the throat and would deaden the rest of his mouth too. Someone else suggested Orabase instead of Oragel because it has no taste and it covers the sore sort of like a "bandage". Maybe one of these would help.

Kim/Jim: I think that katie is a match to Taylor. I'm waiting for her to come home from school to ask her her blood type. She gave blood a couple of weeks ago and they told her her blood type. I hope that she can give platelets. Sounds like times are tough, I can't even imagine what you are going through. Just remember that we are lifting you, Jim and Taylor up in our prayers. I wish that there was more that we could do to help you at this time! Joy

Hi Kim, I have just been catching up with you guys and reading what your weekend has been like. Though I have not left you and Taylor a message in the last few days you have never been out of my mind and my heart. I am so happy to read that he has basically stayed on target as to where he should be in his treatment, but I am so sad to read of his discomfort!! I have copied some of his precious pictures and put them up at the shop. The more people that see Taylor and know about him, the more prayers there will be for a speedy recovery!!!!! Tell that sweet young man that we have some TOY STORY stickers for him. We are working on another fun care package for him, hopefully it will be ready this week. If there is anything he especially wants besides the toys I know about would you please let me know? Otherwise, I will just put together a surprise!!!!!!! I want to also tell you and your husband what a testimony you are to me and I am sure countless others. Your unbelievable spirit never ceases to amaze me!! My heart is with you today and every day and I can't wait to hear of his daily improvements!!! As always give him a BIG hug and kiss from his girlfriends at Salon Magnolia!!! Love, Simin

Alright Kim you have to sing this for Taylor tonight as he "reads" his guestbook. This is what I have always sung to him when babysitting and he needed rocking. The last time I sang it to him he did the "uh huhs" with me. And remember to bounce him a little as you sing it.

Get ready, 1...2....3

Froggy went a courtin' and he did ride, uh huh, uh huh
Froggy went a courtin' and he did ride, uh huh, uh huh

Hi, the pain will stop soon. Katie was on a continous morphine drip, is that possible to get him on one on those? And just when she was in major pain they would add an extra bolus.....Katie's counts came up on Day 9 and she was alowed to go into step down...hold on and in just a few short days you'll see he'll be so much better. Stay Strong....and know that it's hard right now but the days ahead will be so bright!

Hi Taylor,

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that you are having so many problems right now (fever, mouth sores, etc.). I wish I could wave a magic wand and make all that nasty stuff and especially the VERY nasty cancer stay away! I know I am not the first one to say that, but I really do wish I could do something for you.

Did you get your package with the photo album and stickers? I hope you like them. I know it isn't much, but I thought it might add a little bit of cheer to a gloomy day.

I'm thinking of you, little guy!

Hey little guy! Just got back from Foley from having my daughter's wisdom teeth taken out. She is fine, but had a rough time with one of them. I just had to get on here and check on you. I'm sorry your not feeling your 100% today, but at least this is one more day behind you. Keep moving forward and you will be just fine. A tough cookie like you can't be held down for to long. I will say an extra prayer today for a good night's sleep and minimal mouth pain. I hope your appetite comes back soon or the pizza joints will have to go out of business! Take care today and I hope your feeling much better the next time I check in! Love, Cathi

I am very excited that Taylor is doing well and is on schedule. I pray that his bad days will be few and that you all will have the strength to make it through them. I know it must be difficult to see such an active child (especially your own) lying there. Hopefully he will be up and cancer free before you know it. I am praying for you guys.
Love,

Hey guys,
Taylor is probably wide awake after Austins bandage got changed. He was screaming so loud that it sounded like we were abusing him. He is very grumpy, as I would be after such a long day, but tomorrow is new day!!!

Taylor remains in our prayers. I know just how hard it is for you to sit and watch your child when he is not at his 100% form. BUT rest when he rests. It will help and I promise that time will heal this. I pray that his mouth sores will be minimal.
God bless you, my friends,

Tina

Happy New Birthday!!!! We have not been online awhile becouse my "puter" had a nervous breakdown. Wish we could come see you but Alan and I have been passing the flu around and so far we have given it to 3 other people and we did'nt want to give it to you! As soon as we are not contagous we will be up to see you. Give a kiss to mom and dad for us. By the way the party Aunt Jeanna talked about sounds like a great idea. Let us know when and where.
Love and kisses, Aunt Georgie & Uncle Alan

One of the teachers here at Hard, (Monica) brought you back a t shirt from Japan with the Japanese words on the front that mean "long life". I'll get it to you so your mom can wash it and let you wear it. I think it is VERY appropriate right now, don't you?

Taylor, you know me and my big ideas. I think it would be a great idea for us to have a huge coming out party for you when your 90 days of isolation is over. We could have it where we had the Christmas party and invite everyone who reads this website to come for cookies and punch...and a chance to see you and what all their prayers have accomplished. Wanna party?? I think we should plan it for September. Talk to your mom and dad about it and get back to me:-)
Oh, and Happy New Birthday (Uncle Bob's is tomorrow so we'll have no trouble remembering this date).
Lots of love, kisses and hugs.

Good morning my tough little Tiger! Today is the big day and things are going to go great, I know. I have faith that God has BIG plans for you and will get you through this so you can fulfill his plans.
You don't know about him yet, but "Big" (the one you call Pop when you see his picture...Pa-Pa's dad), well, he is watching over you today and he will make sure that everything goes well...he wouldn't have it any other way. He's your own Guardian Angel and you couldn't ask for a better one.
I'll say a special prayer at three, but you'll be in my heart all day...as usual.
Lots of love, kisses ans hugs!

(as are Mommy & Daddy!!) Just keep hangin' in. I feel that God has certainly been watching over sweet Tater Bug and I just know that he's going to be OK. God has sure kept us all going, hasn't He?? Remember that day y'all were over & Taylor played with my little wooden ring box that had the springy bug in it??? I need to find that for Tater, don't I?? He'd probably enjoy sharing it with some of the nurses at the hospital :o) Take care & call if you want company ANY TIME!! luv y'all...

Happy Sunday Taylor! I am so glad to see that your eating! I don't really like the bottom of a bisquit, but the top is good if it's the right kind. See what you get for eating your breakfast...peet peet for lunch! What a reward! I wish I could have pizza as much as you do, it's my favorite food. It doesn't like me real well though, I do put weight on when I eat it alot! You need to put weight on though to keep yourself big and strong. I'm proud of you for letting your dad do your mouth care, you don't want those mouth sores to get bad...if you even have them yet. I have to go back to work tomorrow...we have been out on spring break, but I will be able to check in on you at school until I can get home. Be good today and have fun! Love, Cathi

Taylor,
I enjoyed my visit with you so much yesterday. I know it is probably the last time I'll get to visit for awhile,so it was a very special visit.

Taylor,

I'm so sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well today. I am glad, though, that your blood pressure is in a good range. Does this mean no PICU for now? I hope so!

Take care, little man.

Hey Taylor! I'm sorry your not feeling good today. I am glad though that you had eaten alot the other day because now as I predicted, your appetite is not good. Austin went through that too. Nothing tasted good to him, but you DO have to eat to keep your strength up. You are a tough little man and you will get through this part of your journey just fine. Let the nurses and your mom and dad do what they have to do to get you well. You want to spend as little time as possible in that hospital. I know you want to go home where you can be with your family and have all of your own things. I will be back later to see how you are! Love, Cathi

Hey Little Tiger!
I took some room decorations by your house so hopefully the hospital room will look a little more homey. I hope this doesn't get too boring for you. Let your mom wash your mouth, try to eat and drink, and before you know it you'll be at home riding your gator and eating at Golden Corral!

Dear Taylor, Glad to hear things are going well for you up there and that you are such a hit! I knew you would be with that precious face, who could resist! Since you and Austin can't probably see each other, maybe you could talk on the phone. That would be fun for both of you. Don't be chasin all of the nurses up and down those halls now! Be sweet....I see your appetite is GREAT! That's good too, keeps your strength up for when you may not feel like eating much. They may have to roll you out when it's time to go home, but that's ok too! check in on you later tonight or in the morning....Love, Cathi....P.S. Did you get the pictures I sent on the email?

Hey Taylor and family,

I am one of the girls that helped give Taylor his tour when he came to Auburn. I have never seen a more friendly, energetic, and adorably cute little boy. Every since that day I have been checking the site daily. I am so glad to hear that Chemo is going well so far. Taylor completely stole my heart while he was here. I think and pray for him daily. He is such a stong kid that I know he will come through with flying colors. Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you all. Can't wait to see Taylor again soon. Hope everything keeps going well. GO! GO! GO! Taylor! War Eagle Buddy!

Love Always,

Hi friends, we're cheering for you!!!! Hope things go smoothly. Know that we are praying for you daily - many, many times!!

I asked my girls last night who they wanted to pray for. Sarah Anne said "How about Taylor?" I said "Taylor who" (we have a little girl friend named Taylor at church & I wasn't sure)? She said "You know, my little friend at the hospital that I haven't met yet." I was so proud. She hasn't met him, but we talk about you guys often & I mention him in the prayers we say out loud at night with them, but for him to be the first person she thought of when we prayed was very good for a 5 year old. This whole cancer nighmare has had some wonderful effects on my girls. They are such sweet, caring ( a little spoiled too) kids. I've noticed all the cancer kids seem to be the best kids. I wonder were they that sweet before, or because of the situation they've been in? Anyway, keep looking for the positive effects of all of this & when we all get past the bad, we'll be better people & closer families (and friends) because of it!!!


Praying for many blessing for Taylor & for peace & comfort for you two.

Love,
Kelly

Hello to you all. First.........I am so thankful for the continued good reports. I have been keeping up with Taylor for quite a while. I hope you all enjoyed Disney World. I also understand that you just visited Auburn and met a lady named Sue.........well, that is my mother and she and I have talked about your visit for quite a while. She actually emailed me while you were there to let me know how it was going. I hope Tayler got some good autographs on his Auburn hat. It's never to early to love AU. I hope to see you all down there this fall. I read Kim's posting on Janie's website, and yes, my daughter Taylor and Janie were very close friends...........she misses her terribly, but knows that she is well in heaven. Please know that I visit your site frequently and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.................War Eagle and God Bless.

So Taylor, you gonna rules those tigers or WHAT?! I know they had as much of a blast as you did! Who knows, maybe we will see you out there on that field one day in a jersey all of your own, only a much larger size. Even though I don't know you personally, I can say that I DO KNOW YOU! I enjoy coming to your site everyday to check on your progress. Hope everything goes smoothly until the next step is taken...GLAD YOU HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME ON YOUR TRIP TO DISNEY WORLD AND TO THE AUBURN TIGERS STADIUM. Many kids would give anything to see and meet the players and tour the complex, so you can say at 2 years old that you have done things a grown man would love to do! Let them be jealous! You deserve the BEST! Take care little guy and I will be back on later today! LOVE, Cathi P.S. if you would like to see my puppy, cat and dog, i will send them to your email later tonight. The daschund's name is Tanner and he is 8 months old, the cat's name is KIKI and he is 10 years old and the black lab's name is Wrinkles and he is about 8. I will send you a picture of me, my husband, Ray and our two daughters too.

Welcome home!!! I have kept up with your Disney trip and it sounds like you had a blast. I am glad that you had the opportunity to go somewhere before transplant. Bring your photos up here so you and Taylor can look at them on his 'down' days.
Kim, I know only too well how frightening this is. I was very overwhelmed when I found out that we had to have a Stem Cell transplant. BUT, this experience has not been a bad one. The staff goes out of their way to meet all of your needs and they will do everything they can to keep Taylor comfortable. We have been here since Jan. 4th and I have become very close to the staff. You will love them, just as you do the nurses on 4 Tower. Taylor will do great. The only thing you have to do is take it a day at a time. Being up here is not much different from being anywhere else except you are taking the last steps in this journey AND God will walk it through with you.

WOW! It sounds like you all had a wonderful vacation and are ready for some 'down time'. I do hope all goes well with your pre-stem cell tests and I will keep you in my prayers as you go up. I'm sure we'll see you up in the 'gated community' since we get to visit a few times each week! I am so thankful that your bone marrow is clean! That is a definite answer to prayer! Have a great week!

So glad you all had a great time...maybe you can all go back again one day when he is older and can do more. I know your ready to begin your new journey with the transplant. I will be praying that he does as well as Austin has done. He will be be ready to go home any day now...all he has to do is gain some weight. I see he was having a grilled cheese for breakfast....what is it with cheese in Birmingham??! It must be the best cheese in the world! If you guys like it so much, eat all you want! I will be checking in with you all week to see how things are going. Think good thoughts and keep looking forward to tomorrow! Love, Cathi

He was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 3 months of age and only by the grace of God and all of the wonderful people at Children's. He had surgery and they were able to remove the tumor.

You guys have really done your homework. We are making plans to travel to Sloan the first week of April to begin scans, etc. for the antibody treatment. It was not an option to do it here in NC, and our research indicates that it is showing some great results. Of course, we are hoping that this will provide some extra insurance against relapse.
We are thrilled about your test results. The Lord can do anything!

I found the site that your mommy and daddy made for you through the "Chubby Chica" site. Your story really touched me. I will hold you and your family in my prayers.

I'd like to send you a card, but I am wondering what you like. Do you like Barney? Arthur? Bob the Builder? Sesame Street? Winnie the Pooh? Dinosaurs? Dogs? Or is there something else you like? I'd like to send you a card that you will like to look at, so I don't want to send the wrong kind! :)

What Cancer Cannot Do...
Cancer is so limited....

It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit

to my prayers as well as pass on the e mail requesting prayers! I have a friend that her son, Jackson, in Minneapolis, MN was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage IV at the age of 2 and was recently declared cancer free! He continues on his meds and we continue to pray. He has had a long battle but has come out the winner, just as you will.

Thank you for signing Gabbie's guest book. I know it must be very hard to come to a Web site where a child has died from the same cancer that Taylor has.

Keep your faith and I will add your family to my prayer journal. I know neuroblastoma can be so frightening so you really do need to turn to God every single day.

God bless your family,

Taylor!
I had fun with you yesterday and look forward to Thursday when I'll stay with you again. I am going to come up with a new "eating song" for you to see if you'll eat something besides poptart edges and tootsie rolls!
We love you bunches and bunches!

I know how anxious it is waiting for the results of all these tests to come in. I will pray for the Lord to bless all of the results that you are getting and for them to provide evidence that the Lord has removed every cancerous cell from Taylor's body.

Kim and Jim, I just read the history link on your website, and I remember so many of those things happening while we were also in 4-tower. You have both been so wonderful, always asking how other children are and concerned about everyone else too. Thank you for being so positive and cheerful even when I know you wanted to just stay in your room and hide. You have been such an inspiration to the rest of us parents. You ALL continue to be in our prayers. Alice and Alexis

Thanks for sharing how it all started. It is such a familiar story to us. Morgan had not been feeling well for three weeks and after what seemed like the 100th trip to the doctor (and being sent home with -- it is a virus) I finally told them that I was taking her to the ER. After one CT scan, the oncologists were coming to see us.
From there, our stories are very similar. Morgan was also able to have the tumor removed initially and there was also marrow and bone involvement.
And now here we are, nine days out of transplant with a white count of 0.3.
Taylor is in our thoughts and prayers daily. We know that this is a tough disease, but we also know that the Lord is much stronger and He is going to take care of both of these children.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Kim and Jim,
Thank you so much for checking Jay's web page. Taylor is such a cutie - beautiful big eyes! Jay and Taylor seem to have a lot in common.....Jay's absolute favorite food is cheese! He also loves Golden Corral! I hope that Taylor's counts come up soon so that he can get out of the hospital.
Take care and God Bless.

Hey Taylor, Mom and Dad! I just had another idea on the cracker thing.....since he likes pete pete so well, get him the new goldfish crackers that are all different colors. My 12 year old loves them and I know Taylor would. They are made of the same cheddar cheese that the original ones are made of...just more fun to eat! How are things going today? I hope this finds him feeling great and ready to face another new day! Take care and I'll check in soon....Love, Cathi

Hello Watts Family -- I am so sorry to hear about the fever. It is never fun going back to the hospital. I have not been able to check in for a few days, for some reason I could not pull up your site. I am glad I was able visit today. I will say an extra prayer tonight that this fever will break and there will not be a long hospital stay. We are now on Day +8 and this morning Morgan's white cells came back at 0.1. This is a start. We were warned that they could drop back down, but we are praying that they will not. God Bless You All!

I like Cathi's idea about the crackers. Here's another one...oyster crackers. One bite and they're gone! No broke crackers.
Had a good time in our short visit last night. I am still a little dizzy from all of the spinning we did!
Much Love!

Dear Jim & Kim, I'm sorry to hear about the counts dropping, but we will keep praying for them to multiply. I have an idea for the crackers......get some peanut butter and "fix" the crackers. Give him a fork, spoon or butter knife and show him how to put them back together, then eat what he has fixed. Maybe this keep them from being wasted and give him a sense of an accomplishment that he can eat! Let me know if this works! Take care and have a great week end! Love, Cathi

Morning Tiger!
I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed the new pictures. I showed them to everyone here at work who came through the library. The first was the favorite, but the Bob the Builder Hat pix was a runner-up. Several wanted to know about the spoiled T-shirt for their babies and grandbabies.
We're going to think of someplace you can go that is close, fun, and easy to get reservations at...how about my house?
Just kidding! We'll find some place more exciting.
BTW, saw you on Ch 13 this morning. They should show that new picture!
LOVE!

Jeanna and Bob

Good morning Taylor! Love the new pictures, doesn't look like your appetite is failing! I really like the first picture of you in your bed! Looks like your posing and it's precious!!! You remind me of Austin when he was little with your white hair and blue eyes. I had just checked in with him and then it was time to come to Taylor's page. Isn't it neat to have your own page on the internet where all the people who love you can keep an eye on you? I don't even have my own page! Looks like you have plenty of toys at hand too! Well, you be a good boy today and keep up the good work! Check in with you after while....LOVE, Cathi

Hi Kim, Jim, & Taylor!! Just wanted to say hello and let you all know I think of you and pray for you every day. Hope things work out so you can go on your trip next month. I am thrilled the blood drives have gone so well so far. Gonna check with my doctor to see if I can give blood for Tater this week. (Don't know if you'd want mine or not...., but I'm gonna check it out.) I share your story with everyone. I figure the more prayers going up for you, the better. Hang in there. I love you all!! Donda
ps tell Gram this goes for her, too :o)
