Today, Elena has reached yet another milestone.
Today is her first SURVIVOR clinic appointment! Praise God!
While we are so very grateful and happy to have reached this milestone, we are also faced with the ugly truth that at the same time, late term effects from treatment are always a possibility for Elena.

We already know that Elena's treatments have already affected her brain and bones. We are praying that today only brings good news of great health and continued recovery for Elena!

Today Elena will have a pulmonary function test, echocardiogram, EKG, chest x-ray, and a bone density scan. She will also have blood work done and be seen by an endocrinologist and a survivorship doctor.

It's been quite a journey to get to this point. We finally feel like we are moving past simply living in survivor mode to just living.

Thank you always for your prayers and your presence in our lives!
We will send out an update with today's results when we get them.

In Him,
The Tates
