Courtney is doing wonderful!  She will be 19 on December 10th.  It's crazy how fast the time has flown by since her diagnosis when she was 16.  All of her scans have come back negative, and her next scans are January 6th.  My mom will be flying in from Florida to go with us to the appointments this time.  It is very nice to have the additional support, and EVERYONE needs to see what a wonderful hospital St. Jude it.  It's absolutely amazing, and we are very fortunate that they have a melanoma study. 

Courtney moved down to Alabama in June when she graduated high school.  She lived on her own for a brief period, but now lives back at home and drives to University of Alabama every day for school.  She absolutely LOVES college and is making new friends.  She will also start back at work next week 3 days a week.  She loves to be busy and will get a couple dollars at the same time.

She is not thrilled that she has to live at home as she loved being on her own, but she is happy to be closer to her family.  I suggested that she live at home the entire 4 years, but she got tears in her eyes, and said that she wants to do everything she can in life, and she does not know how long she will live.  That absolutely broke my heart hearing this from my child.  She said she normally does not think about dying, but it does cross her mind at times.  No child should ever have to worry about this. 

Today is Halloween and, yes, she is going trick or treating.  She stopped going when she was about 13.  I tried to convince her to go every year, but she was "too old."  Not this year!!  :)

Thank you so much for the update. We will be watching and praying. She has a very proactive treatment plan given her diagnosis. For that we should be grateful. The results should be much more promising that current statistics. There is hope and expectation for a bright future for Courtney. ♥ thank you again for the update. ♥
