We finally got a call from the Dr. about Lyrics blood tests and heart exam and the results are great. Everything looks good this month including her first heart exam. Lyric will have to have a heart exam every year for the rest of her life since one of the chemos she had is so serious, a person can only have it once in their lifetime, but it has a high chance of causing heart damage later on. Thank the lord her first exam looks good. Choosing to allow her to have that particular chemo was a tough decision but when your facing what we were facing we wanted to try anything.
Please continue to keep Lyric and our family in your prayers since we still have a long road ahead of us. Thank you.

Today we are visiting the Vanderbilt Cancer Clinic for Lyric's Jan checkup. It also happens to be her one year checkup since we have been home. This is an important visit. We were told when we finished chemo that the next two years would have the highest chance of a relapse and now we have made it to the one year mark with great results.
We are one step closer to the five year mark when they will declare her full remission. Thank you to all who trully supported us and please continue to pray for Lyric and our family as we continue this journey.
On top of Lyric having to have her checkup she is sick for the first time in a long time with a deep cough and sore throat. We will have to have that looked at also.
The last visit was the first time Lyric really new what was going to happen when we got to the clinic before we even arrived and she was not happy (Giving blood). It is the hardest thing for a daddy to watch you children go through things you know are for the best but hurt them so. It breaks my heart. I know she will throw a fit when we take her to the blood draw room this time.
I will give an update later after we get results.
