I can't believe I'm already in memphis. I was in Hawaii less than a week ago! Anyways, today my blood test went ever so perfectly! My GGT is lower than its been a long time! (That's a good thing)
I also had my MRI! I was way scared cause they put me in twice as long as they usually do, after coming in to announce the doctor needed more images of my brain. So obviously I was freaking out. But when we went in to get the results, it was better than I thought it would be!
My tumor has shrunk, thanks to those of you who are praying for me. So thank you so much, you've really convinced God to be on my side. Feel free to continue!
Thanks so much, can't wait to get home tomorrow!

I just barely realized I haven't updated in over a month! Time flies!
Anyways, I've been feeling a lot more normal/Rachel-ish lately. I swear I hardly even get sick anymore!  Which for me has been terrific and such a blessing, and an answer to many of my prayers.  So Christmas was terrific, except I was really sick that night, throwing up, but the morning and afternoon were awesome, and I was so happy it was a white Christmas.
Also we went to Hawaii on the 30th of December and got back the 8th of January from my make-a-wish trip. It was very fun! But also rainy the whole time. So here are a trillion pictures, that I'm sure anyone who is reading is really interested at looking at.
Oh it was also cool, how I felt great the entire time! I know that some of you prayed specifically for me to feel good on my trip-THANKS.    I didn't throw up once! God was sendin some lovins my way! So blessed.
 The plane on the way there!

So as you can tell, we had a blast, at the PCC, Paradise Cove Luau, Parasailing, Swimming with dolphins, etc. We even got to see my cousins Barrett and Heather with their kids the last night, we went to cheesecake factory. It was so fun! They have THE cutest kids. 
Tomorrow (Sunday) I'll be flying out to Memphis where I will have an MRI to check the tumor and of course more blood tests. So much plane time! Ah crazy, but at least I'll only be there til Tuesday!
Thanks for the prayers and support! 
Much Love
