Going Great!

Everything is going great and Dawson is doing fabulously much to every ones surprise. He is such a strong boy and such a fighter, we knew he could handle all of this! The MRI today was just more encouraging news with the surgeons feeling great and they believe they got all of the tumor! His brain is still swollen which is to be expected but so far GREAT!!!!! He ate a pudding tonight along with milk and loved every bite, those of you that know him our any of us for that matter know our love for food soooo. He also had a few bites of my rice, I could not be happier at this stage in the game. (always a game right?)
We are so blessed by everyone and can feel the love, I do not wish this type of tragedy on anyone but if you could feel what we feel from everyone around the world it really helps!! What a support we have. Until tomorrow just keep praying for good healing and maybe a little sleep! please a little!
(Sorry no pics haven't left the hospital) Keep commenting it is so encouraging!

Heavenly Father certainly has big plans for your special little boy. It is so great to have the gospel in our lives and to know that there is a plan for all of us. I am so greatful that no matter what the situation we have the power of prayer to bless our lives. The pictures of Dawson were humbling to see and I think helps all of us put our lives in perspective. It helps us focus on what is really important in life. We love your family so much, and are awed by the things you have been though in the last few days. We continue to pray for all of you and wish the very best for you. Dawson is a very special boy and has great things ahead of him. You have a very special family and we are glad to see that things have to a turn for the better. We are here for you if you need anything at all.
