October 16, 2014...Part 2

Today Is MRI Day and we decided to keep the girls out of school and go to the hospital together as a family.  Getting an unexcused absence is well worth the emotional craziness of the day being apart and having the girls ask to call us all day long to see how their little brother is doing.  It may be a lot more chaotic and loud and stressful when all three of the kids are together, but Ingram would have it no other way!  First up, Assessment/Triage appointment at 7:00am for statistics and his IV...

Holding Steady At 49ish Pounds And That's Without Food For 12 Hours Already!

We Didn't Need This To Know He's Getting Taller!  

Someone Had Her Giggle Box On This Morning And Snuck In The Height Stick!

"You Can Poke Me If You Can Find Me!"

It Only Took One Poke And Barely Any Tears!  It Must Have Been His Girls "In The Building"
Bringing Him Good Luck.  They Definitely Weren't In The Room With Us While We Were Attempting The IV, Because They Just Get Mad And That Does Not Help!

Ingram And "Mr. Dr. White" As Ingram Calls Him!  Mrs. White Works At ECS In Ingram's Classroom And
Mr. White Is Doing Rotations At St. Jude And Found Us In E Clinic.
They're Both Sporting Ingram's Favorite Color!

Doing Crafts With The Ladies Of St. Jude To Pass The Time!

These Boys Are Hard At Work Putting Lightning McQueen Back Together Again!

Daddy Helped Ingram Get Dressed For His MRI And Something Looks A Little Off Here!  Ingram's Gown Is On Backwards, His Pants Are Rolled Up To His Knees, And Daddy's Missing His Socks!
But At Least Ingram Has An Ironman Coloring Book So It's All Okay!

Hugs And Kisses Before Ingram Is Off To Sleep!

"Lindsey, Give Me A Kiss!"

"Scooby's Already On For Me, Mommy!"

All Snuggled Up In A Warm Blanket Watching A Show While His Class Is Doing Work!

He Wanted To Show His Class His IV!

Waking Up After Having 100% Oxygen Just Makes Your Nose Feel Really Funny
That You Just Have To Rub And Rub It!

"Are You Ready To Wake Up Yet Ingram?"

Wait There Goes The Nose Again!

He Was Too Tired For The Wheelchair So He Crammed Back In The Wagon To Sleep It Off!

Then He Remembered His Donut And Apple Juice Was Waiting On Him!  It's 1pm Now And
This Is His First Food Since 9pm Last Night...Starving And Sleepy!

We're Not Quite Sure What Happened Here, But We're Pretty Sure Lindsey Put Him Up To It!
Ingram Can't Walk By Himself Because He's So Groggy, So He Was Just Laying Down In The
Wagon.  Lindsey Decided She Would Pull Him Around The Lobby And This Is How They
Came Back!  We Should Have Learned Our Lesson From This Summer's MRI Day
Where Lindsey Had Ingram Pushing Her In The Wheelchair!

Practicing Fine Motor Skills While "Drowsy" Is Really Fun!

While We Were Waiting For Ingram's Last Appointment Of The Day To Get His MRI Results, This Came Across Facebook On The Tim Tebow Foundation Page!!  They Had Called Us Wednesday Afternoon To See If Ingram Would Like To Spend Some Time With Tim Tebow!!!  Are You Kidding Me?? The Above Quote Is EXACTLY What He Said!

Ingram Was Asked For His Favorite Bible Verse By The Tim Tebow Foundation And This Picture Pretty Much Sums It Up On A Couple Different Levels.  His Verse Is John 3:16 And Ingram Says It Exactly Like This..."For God So Loved The World That He Gave His One And Only Son For The Whole Entire World!" The First Level Is Exactly What The Verse Says...We Have HOPE In Believing That Jesus Christ Died On The Cross For Our Sins, Rose On The Third Day, And Ascended Into Heaven To Prepare A Place For Those Who Believe In Him To Live Eternally!  The Second Level Is That We Have HOPE From Our Wonderful Doctors, Nurses, Specialists, And Researchers At SJCRH That We Are Going To Continue To Have CLEAR SCANS Until That Day Comes Because Of The Knowledge God Has Given Them.  

Celebrating CLEAR SCANS At The Two Year Post Treatment Anniversary! Please Continue To Pray For Those Affected By Childhood Cancer For The Good Days And The Bad Days.  Next MRI...4 Months :( But Today, We Celebrate!

  1. We are so happy to hear that Ingram's latest scans came back clear. We think of your whole family often and pray for you, too. This is very welcome news for us. :-)

    Also, Ingram is getting SO BIG!
