Allright, this is a 2 parter:

Part 1:
God is so good! We met with the Dr. this morning and she said, that in her professional opinion... the tumors that are in Randy's bone's are actually gone and that the spots that showed up on the last bone scan were actually his healthy bone tissue regenerating itself. Who in the world would have thought that it would actually repair itself?!?! The holes in his bones are fixing themselves. WOW! ok, so onto part 2

Part 2:
As a mom of a boy who loves video games, this is proof to all of you nay sayers out there who say that it makes them monsters. If any of ya'll know Randy and Conor, it's their "thing" to play games together. Conor grew up in a gamer house, and believe me, I've gotten A LOT of flack from other parents who say that it will turn them into little brats and make him spoiled, stupid, etc...well get this: In the car on the way to the hospital today he said, "You know what just clicked in my head, I mean I just realized this right now... games aren't as important as my family, friends or God. I need to spend more time focusing on that". So take THAT! He came to that conclusion all on his own. It's proof that even 10 year old boys can make the right choices even when it seems like all they think about is themselves and what they want. Then he wanted to do his homework in the hospital so that he had time to spend with his sister later... now i want to reward him with a video game. Funny, just like God, parents like to reward their children when they make the right choices. Here's a pic of how our life is at this moment, "Homework in the hospital":

Kristyn: Very proud of your son to see where video games should and must fit into the importance of life, love, family and God... very perceptive for a 10 year old.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!!!! Incredible, wonderful news. I am so thrilled for you guys.

When my Jake got his first video game, I was sure I'd have to put limits on him - no way. He limits himself very nicely. Guess he's just not one of those kids that gets totally sucked in. If he gets a new game, he might play a little more, but only for a day or two. But he's not so perceptive as Conor! Great job raising great kids!

That is such good news to hear. It's like...when Jesus healed all those lepers and told them to go see the priest...only one came back to thank Him and that one, He not only healed, He made whole. Thanksgiving is such a powerful thing.

What great news. I am amazed continually at how our bodies work. Tell Randy that Ava has her class at school pray for Randy. We pray for his healing every night before bed.
