Izzy loves parties, but not pity parties.

If you want to feel sorry for someone, please don't feel sorry for her or our family.

This blog is for family and friends to keep up with Izzy and to document what a tough little girl she really is...

Don't worry - - she will kick cancers butt!

Best Big Brother EVER!

This guy has been such a great sport through all this. I came home last night to stay with Tommy. We snuggled in bed and watched Polar Express.

He came up on Monday to hang out in the waiting room while Izzy was in surgery to get her port removed. He saw her come out of surgery and he was really sweet. Izzy was pretty upset because of the surgery and I'm sure the medicine as well.

Here they are reunited for the brief time that they got to see each other. It's been a juggling act to try and be there for both Tommy and Izzy. They are both going through this major crisis and need support in different ways. It's not that we haven't had family and friends tell us that Tommy can come to their place to hang out because we certainly have, it's that he needs his parents just like any other 7 year old kid does. We will get through this though and our family will be stronger than ever.

Much Love,



  1. oh jennie. i freaking hate this. you're doing such a good job with this juggling act - i am so proud to call you my friend. tommy is an amazing kid, we always knew that, but now we know why he's so awesome. i love you and you're always in my prayers.

  2. I really hate that you're going through this horrible time, and this post brought me to tears, as I have a 4 year old and a 7 year old too and I can't imagine having to do what you're doing, you are amazing and such a good mom!! You guys are always in my thoughts and prayers! I wish Tommy and William knew each other so we could have Tommy come play, maybe when life isn't so chaotic we can have a play date!


We LOVE comments, thanks for the support
