We Have Hit the Six Month Mark!

We have hit the six month mark and Erin is still alive and strong. It did not come without some challenges. Especially the last week. Erin started with a very bad headache on Friday, April 14th which lasted for 8 days. Finally yesterday there was some releif. I took her to the doctor and got her blood work done. I took her to the Chiropractor. I took her to a friend of mine who restores the body using the feet. It was the longest week ever. Along with the headaches her bowels were backed up and each time she would eat solids they would come back up. Liquids would stay down. The doctor said she was not dehydrated and that all the levels on her blood looked great. That was good news. Now we had to go to work on the bowels. We added more water, apples, apple juice, aloe vera juice, etc. When none of this worked the next step was prunes or a garlic enema. Well I knew Erin would not eat prunes. We did the enema. With in an hour it was working. Amazing!! The headaches let up and we are getting this all figured out.

More Exciting News!!

The most exciting thing happened today. Steven has a relative on his side of the family who called us today. He is a reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune. He had been reading Erin's web-site and was touched. He said they were looking for a good human interest story and were wondering if we would mind if they ran a story on Erin. He said she is so cute and her story just appeals to you. Well of course I said yes. They will put together some information and then contact us this week to come and take some pictures. I will keep you updated so you are sure to read the article.

All our Love and Thanks. Erin is doing so good and we are so grateful.

Erin's Miracle!!

Yesterday we received the best news we have heard since we started this journey with Erin. I tried to talk with Dr. Calzada unsucessfully last week. I finally talked with him last night. All the lab work was back in regards to the tumor. THERE HAS BEEN NO GROWTH OF THE TUMOR AT ALL!! It is not growing. The Doctors removed everything they could see on the MRI at PCMC back in October. Since then no growth has occured. It is a miracle!!

Words can not begin to explain the joy as a mother I feel. What we are doing is working. God is truly blessing this little Angel. I believe she has a purpose on this earth and is meant to be here.

Lastest updates February 26, 2006

We recently returned from our second visit to Dr. Calzada who is Erin's Doctor. We think the world of him. We went this time to have Erin's blood work done and to get more treatments. The results were very positive.

Erin's red blood cells, white blood cells, triglycerids, everything that is off with cancer patients, were normal! This is a huge improvement from our last visit. Erin's energy is high, her color looks good and she is doing great. Overall she looks very healthy. Dr. Calzada said, "Erin's body is healing, her blood work is normal. I feel she will heal. Ultimately it is in God's hands, but I think it must be God's will that she heal."

February 7, 2006 Update

Well it has been 3 months since Erin came home from the hospital. I am so pleased with the progress she is making. Last week we took her to the Doctor. He was impressed and amazed that her weight was up. Usually by now most people with this type of tumor would be going downhill fast. Not Erin! She is strong.

She has returned to preschool and loves it. When she is not at school her friends miss her and ask about her. Where ever she goes she touches the hearts of those around her.

The latest example of this was our recent purchase of a new car for the family. Dave Folkman at Low Book Sales in Lindon was so impressed with Erin and touched by her situation that he wanted to install a DVD player for free in our car and pay for it himself. WOW!! His boss Dave Nielson wouldn't let him but agreed to have Low Book Sales of Lindon pay for it. Now when we make our trips to California to see Erin's specialist we will not be bored.

December 31

Just wanted give an quick update on Erin. Erin's headaches have gone away. Erin, her sister and brother had a wonderful Christmas due to all of you that gave so much to our family over the holiday.
As of today Erin is feeling and doing terrific, I have even noticed that she is walking better and she is even riding her bicycle again.
We are so thankful that she is doing so well and hopeing and praying that it stays that way.

It's Official

I am very excited to let each of you know that The Wishing Wizard from the Make-A-Wish Foundation called us and Erin's wish has been granted!! YEAH!!! Erin's wish was to have a princess party at Disney. After all Erin has suffered she deserves to be able to forget about her challenge and have a week full of fun!!

The Wishing Wizard was holding in her hands our airline tickets. We will fly out of Salt Lake City to Orlando, Florida on Friday January 13, 2006 at 8:25 a.m. where we will spend 7 days at the Disney World Resort. They were even able to reserve the "Give Kids The World Suite" for us. This is the icing on the cake. Erin will be treated like the Princess she is.

Update on Erin - December 16, 2005

Erin had a pretty good day. She has been saying her head hurts when she wakes up the last few days. This concerns us because of the possibility of pressure building in the brain from the surgery. We took her and had some work done. This got the spinal fluid moving which was what was causing the pain. She was a little tired so today was a slower day. Overall recovery is coming along.

Thanks to everyone for your love, prayers and support!

Love, The Galbraith Family :>)
