8 hours of our day. (Week 22)

That's right, it's Thursday. And J-L and I sit by the computer with the most hope that we have felt in 2 weeks. There is very little new to report except for this: Jack has grown and if his tumour has grown at all it hasn't grown as fast as he has. And that is a good thing. His heart is still going strong and his size is as it should be at 22.5 weeks. And so, a little glimpse into our Thursdays from now until May 25th.

and speaking of gifted ...Cynthia, that was lovely.

I've been holding it in all day but now there are tears streaming down my face.

Lord give us 4 more months of Good News Thursdays.

Thank you for sharing this. Simply beautiful.

I'm so sorry you are going through all of this, but Jack is already blessed with loving parents who are giving up so much of themselves for him. It's so worth it for your sweet baby boy.

I'm glad the tumor hasn't grown as much as he has, excellent news for today.

A) That is good news. You beat the odds, Jack. Outgrow that tumor!!

B) J-L is too cool for school.

C) Abby is the cutest sanity-keeper I think I've ever met.

Blast! I can't download your video. I'll try tomorrow. Anyway, I'm so happy that there is good news. I'm thinking that by the time he is a full-grown man, that thing will be a little bump on his spine, a reminder of this time in the life of your family.

Weeping at the good news, the beautiful video, and a prayer for more Thursdays that bring joy.

Trying to process the good news while Abby pulled my hand and begged me to "count! count!" was a wonderful thing.

And your song and journey through a thursday brought tears to my eyes.

Keep up the good work, God.

Abby is starting to look like a big sister already.

SO glad for the good news. That was a beautiful peek into your day.

This was so beautiful....and quite emotional. I'm so glad to hear that God is at work in little Jack's life, and that he is bigger then the tumor...fantastic news......We will be continuing to hold your family up in prayer, Taylor and I pray for your family every night.

Wow. The beauty midst the pain. The creativity that flows through you even when you must sometimes feel like you're simply stumbling from one moment to another. I especially like looking at the smile (with what looks like calm assurance or peace?) as you lay on the table. Such strength. I thank God for you and J-L and Abby and Jack. The four of you are amazing.
