|Kate, 9.13.2011, "Waiting to hear..."|
Good news for the McRae family and their many friends and supporters (We're everywhere!): Daughter Kate's MRI yesterday was unchanged from the one in July. Her mom Holly explains in her journal post on CaringBridge how difficult it is to plan treatment in this type of cancer after remission. They've decided to continue her current chemo regimen for a year, contingent on continued good scan results. Her next scheduled scan is in November.
Her father Aaron tweeted yesterday, as they faced the anxious period of waiting for results:
Say it ain't so, Aaron and Holly, say it ain't so!
This whole family is on a journey and so here's a shout out to Kate's Most Excellent Siblings -- Olivia and Will. Maybe the three of you can influence your parents' television choices?! As always, Kate, you are very special and much loved by everyone here at The Manor. Keep up the great work in school and at therapy. I so much admire your good attitude, too, about chemo and all the testing, appointments and stuff. My dear friends Captain Haddock and La Bonne et Belle Bianca Castafiore are also big fans of you and your family, and want to send along their best wishes. The Captain is thinking of naming his next miniature pink submarine The McRae, and Bianca loves to sing "Little Light" in the shower...

This song was written by Audrey Assad, a Nashville Singer-Songwriter, during an online Global Night of Prayer for Kate McRae. The lyrics came in one pass that night and the chords/melody came the following morning.
Look at all the angels watching you
Your eyes are brilliant, deep sky blue.
And Jesus bends to hear you breathe;
