One Year

It has been one year since KK was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV brain tumor.

When KK and I talk about the day we went to the opthamologist to figure out why KK was having double vision, we joke that Dr. Kazarian basically told us to "go to the ER, do not pass go, do not collect $200."

I am well aware of the median survival rate of those diagnosed with a GBM. I am so grateful for each and every day that we have had together this past year. We even got an "extra day" together this year (Hooray for Leap Day!).

Over the past year, I spent many days (and nights) praying over KK and whispering to her to "fight". God has given her an amazing fighting spirit. She is stronger than anyone I know...she truly is a fighter and an overcomer.

In the weeks leading up to this anniversary date, I was a bit apprehensive. My mom decided that we needed to do "something fun" and bought us tickets to see The Sound of Music in Boston. We are looking forward to finishing our first year with "Charlie" with "the sound of music".

Just try to tell me that this song doesn't remind you of KK's positive attitude...

I agree -- KK's amazing spirit is very much exemplified in this song! We continue to pray for you daily.
