We have not updated in a while, so Happy New Year to all who follow this site!  We had a wonderful holiday.  The kids had a blast and we got to see lots of family and friends.    

My main purpose for this quick entry is to alert you all that the sign up for the 2nd Annual Team Hailey 5k Run/Walk for a cure is now live.  Click on the event in the "Events" section of the site for more information.  We are looking to blow away our numbers from last year (500+ participants, 46K raised) so we hope you will all strongly consider participating and spreading the word to everyone you know to do the same. Grandma Peg and her team are and have been already hard at work on marketing, getting sponsors, planning, etc.  We are excited for year 2, and a little bit wiser from last year's first time experience! 

The quick update is that Hailey is doing well.  Next MRI is at the end of February.  We're enjoying the break from chemo and are using the extra time we have to catch up on life, business, family time, friends, fundraising, etc.  We're working hard (and playing hard at times too).   

Stay tuned....

Good News!  On Thursday Hailey had a follow up eye exam in Madison and at this time her vision is unaffected by the tumor.  She has had no loss of visual function.  And this will be the last eye exam where she has to have the electrodes hooked to her head and an eye taped shut (a process that scares her and really gets her worked up).  Uncle Joe came with us to the appointment this time and helped pass the time for us and for Hailey, and then he took us all to Ellas Deli afterwords for lunch.  Hailey loved it there.  We've driven by that place a hundred times and never went in, but we will definitely have to go back when Faith is with us next time.  

So we will have another eye exam in six months, unless something would warrant an appointment sooner.  We also have another MRI at the end of February, which will be the first of her regularly scheduled post-chemo MRI's.

Just a reminder, the Run/Walk sign up is now activated on the EVENTS section of the site.

No change in the tumor since last MRI!!!!! We've dodged another bullet this round.  Next MRI in 3 months.

We are so thankful for all your thoughts and prayers and your continued support.
