Good News, Good News

Hey y'all! There's lots of things going on!  First and foremost...

Mom's MRI of her brain today showed SHRINKING of the 4 tumors!  (No treatment since the last MRI, which also showed shrinking post-Gamma knife... so to God be all the glory!!!!!!!!!)  The neurosurgeon thinks they'll continue to shrink in the coming months and he is turning her over to the oncologist to monitor the shrinking.  Praise God!

Secondly, Jonah's first birthday is coming up!  To celebrate his birthday, the blog world is having "Jonah's EB Auction" February 23-27.  The auction is a fundraiser for DebRA, an EB organization.  Jonah is my friend/former teacher, Patrice's son, that I know you've "heard" me mention before.  He has a rare genetic skin disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa which causes his skin to be super sensitive/blister easily.  Katie, another friend/former teacher, is running the auction and posted this message to the Facebook event:
Help us celebrate Jonah's first birthday by raising money to help find a cure for EB! We will be auctioning off lots of great goodies and gift cards and all proceeds will go do DebRA ( AND all auction purchases are TAX DEDUCTIBLE! How 'bout them apples?!  Help us spread the word and fight EB! Join us from 12:01am Feb 23 to 11:59pm Feb 27 and bid on your favorite item. Or items. :) Visit the auction site for more details - Be sure to bookmark it! It is totally online, so it doesn't matter if you live in NC, DC, the OC, or heaven forbid, Canada (just kidding Canada!) you can still take part!
So check it out, spread the word, do your thing so this can be a success!

Other than that... Game vs. Wake Forest tonight... look for me, I'll be there!  I hope the Basketball God's are lining up in our favor (we could use it)... Go Heels!
