Long blog!

So I realize that it has been a very long time since we have blogged and while not blogging some crazy stuff has happened. First as you can see by the picture below, little Eden has some medical issues. In the matter of a week, she had two episodes which altered us, and by the end of the week we were at BC Childrens hospital. In a nut shell our little girl was diagnosed with a brain tumour, it was diagnosed on a Saturday and removed the following Monday. It has taken almost one month for us to receive pathology results, which have named the tumour and have given us a little piece of mind. The giant medical name is desmoplastic infantile glanglioglioma, grade 1 begien (which is a favourable diagnosis).

EEG at Victoria General

"Really Daddy, the other guy looks much worse", Eden 5 days post op.

And hey look at me "I'm home, put on your seat belts we're going for a ride". Two weeks post op.
She looks wonderful!
We also have celebrated 3 birthdays. Thalia's double digit, she is now 10 years old on Feb 24th, it was most unfortunate we were in Vancouver but I know she had a great time at her party with friends at the gymnastics club. We arrived home in time for Samantha's jump into the teenage years on the 4th of March she is now 13 years old, and just recently we celebrated my dads big 50th on the 25th. Throw in Easter and well we have been just a little busy.

Eden, it is so good for Aunty to see you looking just like your old self, makes my tummy warm.

You keep getting into things, screaming and moving about. You keep your mummy on her toes, okay?

See you soon, Hugs and Kisses, Aunty Allison

I am so relieved to hear that the results of the pathology were positive and that Eden is on the mend. I've been thinking about you a lot. Take good care of yourself Erin, and keep up that great attitude. You're amazing! Next time we bump into each other, let's go for a cup of tea, shall we?

I was just about to call you to see if there was any word on Eden diagnosis. Good news, I'm much as I can be about a brain tumour. The pictures are awesome you guys, you all look great. Have to say, a little jealous of the hiking pics as we got fresh snow this morning and I walked over my 4 foot fence yesterday, like I mean, I literally didn't even see it because there is more than 4 feet of snow on our property still. (sigh)

We love you. Healing thoughts are coming at you!
Love the McCalls
p.s. David just got engaged to Andrea! Wedding probably in summer of 2009!
