First off, A BIG BIRTHDAY SHOUT OUT TO MY BRO, JAMIN! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEST BIG BROTHER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! Next,these pictures are not in any order. These are all the events that have occurred in my life since my last entry. Sorry it's taken so long. Besides a wonderful weekend away in Las Vegas, payed for by going to a time share presentation and all other costs payed for from generous family, friends, and strangers, (HUGE THANKS) I received the best Birthday gift I could ask for. I officially have my life back! I am in remission! My scans look good!!!

I took this picture of myself after I was given the good news.

This is my Thank You, Thank You God, I couldn't have gotten through all of this without all of your love, support, and prayers, Thank you to my doctors and all the wonderful nurses who took care of me, I can't wait to give back to others, am I really cancer-free, It's a miracle, I am deeply grateful for everyone who stayed by my side whether literally or from a distance face.
Eric & Shelsi on top of the Stratosphere where we stayed the weekend in Las Vegas!
We were going to ride Insanity at the top of the Stratosphere but right before we were about to get on they closed the ride due to high winds. That a bit scary, isn't it? If anyone hasn't ever seen this ride, you are in a bucket seat that gets tipped so you are facing down in the middle of the sky way high up and spinning around in a circle. It's kind of like those swings at carnivals only a thousand times scarier and in mid air.
Mom and I had an awesome lunch at the Beverly Center on Tuesday the 24th of June after my scans at Cedars. I had to fast since the night before so I was starving!

Eric and I on my Birthday at a nice breakfast buffet.


We participated in the Relay for life a few Saturdays ago at Moorpark High School. It was a really neat and memorable experience!
Eric got me my first limo ride on Saturday in Vegas for my Birthday!
Good Times!!

Relaxing by the pool on the eighth floor of the Stratosphere
Eric's long time friend Richard Hales and his wife Nancy invited us to his parents cabin a few Friday's ago. We had a fun time!
Lighted luminary bags for cancer survivors and those who have passed away from cancer
Awesome bagpipe performance
Me and brother Jamin before the 1st survivor lap. Wow I look white as a ghost!

Daddy kissing my forehead, Me smiling at the camera holding some beautiful flowers that Lisa Hardy gave me (she invited us all to be on our team. Thanks Lisa!), and Jamin looking at something, can you guess what it is? I can't. LOL

Congratulations Shelsi! That is the most amazing news I have heard in a long time! We both have been so blessed and have received miracles that I know I didn't know how long it would be before I experienced mine, and here I am at almost 18 weeks! We even got to hear the heartbeat! It was incredible. I hope that all continues to go well for you and Eric.
