I'm afraid to say it out loud, and yet at the same time, I want to shout it from the mountain tops.  Jackson's scans showed "NAD" or No Active Disease!!

I guess he's in remission.

We are finally where we've been trying to get for a year.

But I'm afraid to say it out loud... because what if that jinxes us?

Jackson's counts are finally coming back up.  He goes out in public with out a mask on now.  The only thing we have been waiting for is for Jackson's body to grow platelets so that we can get his central line out.  But- things there are looking up too... Jackson is scheduled for surgery this week (contingent upon his counts).

We feel so lucky.  So blessed.  So grateful.

But I'm still afraid to say it out loud.  In fact, I can't say it out loud with out getting teary eyed... my gratitude and joy just overwhelms me.

So, for those of you who have been waiting for an update... please feel free to celebrate with us!  But do it quietly, because I'm afraid if we all cheer too loudly that it'll jinx us- and we don't want to have to fight for Jacksons life again.


  1. there is lots of silent screaming going on at our house...ok..that just sounds creepy...but we are very very (quietly) happy! :)

  2. Yay! We're so happy for you! (but it's a quiet nonjinxing happy)

  3. congrats super hero jackson you have fought the dragon ... we love you guys

  4. Sooooooooo happy for your guys! What a warrior Jackson! You are an inspiration to us!


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
