I just got caught up on the blog entries. I'm bursting with pride for the job well done for Tessa Jean. She worked so hard to reach her goal. She is truly an amazing little girl. Kudos to her Daddy and Mommy as well. None of this, from diagnosis to now, has been easy. You have both been incredibly strong. I love you all very much. Missing you. Zanny

What wonderful news!! I'd noticed Tessa looking taller and (maybe I'd imagined it) actually more mature looking than 6 months ago. She's a gutsy little lady. And she's very lucky to have the family and friends she has too. Cheers to you all!!


Congrats Tessa on a GREAT report. I could certainly tell that you had grown some from the picture in last year's photo. Dad, thank you for sharing your heartfelt sentiments. What an awesome dad. I continue to hold all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for sharing your window into your world. It is wonderful to see a family growing and so full of love. "Sunrise, Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof is the song you quoted!!

Have a good one...



It was great to hear that things are healing so well and that the travel time will be dropping off. It's a huge accomplishment for Tessa (and the rest of you) and I hope you all have some opportunity to take in the feeling of relief. School's out...........

We are getting going on some wedding and party plans this week - any suggestions for songs on the play list would be surely considered. Dad and I did some practicing on Saturday - much work to do.

Have a great week and savor the time,

Great news about the Baltimore Doctor visit. I am so grateful that this all turned out so well for Tessa, and she still has a few weeks of summer vacation to enjoy. I just had Kat and Nate come down and see the pictures of Tessa and how her leg has changed. They had just finished drying the dishes for me and later , Lisa is taking them to swim at the YMCA, followed buy a sleep over at her house tonight. We will probably have Sharon with us when we come on Labor Day. She bought a new Ford Explorer and wants to put some travel time on it, and visit with Marv, and you. More later. Delores

Good Morning!
I was so touched by the sentiment in your blog, I forgot to "Name that tune." It is "Sunrise, Sunset" from the musical "Fiddler on the Roof."

Have a great day!

Wow, what wonderful news. The BLOG entry about your feelings about the experience Tessa has gone through, and the pictures of her 6 months apart were so touching they brought some tears to my eyes. Reading this for the last 6 months, I've often wondered how this does affect a child. You see the obvious physical differences, ponder the emotional differences, and yes can only guess at how this has made her a stronger individual. Then, you can know, in your heart, that this has formed how she will approach every challenge from here on in.

She couldn't have done this without the love and support of her parents, family, and friends. You are all very lucky to have this person in your lives.

What a touching and thoughtful entry. Thank you.

I am so glad that the news was good. What a relief it must be to know that you don't have to return until next year! That's awesome.

I am fighting insomnia tonight, so I think I may go back to bed and try it again. I am so glad I checked your blog though. With such good news and such a poignant entry, I should sleep well and have very pleasant dreams.

I love you all ...
