Since returning back home on 9/20/12 Jorden has been busy with school work, spending time with family and friends and playing lots of baseball.

On that day we had to be up at 3am to catch a 6am flight, and once we arrived to Orlando, Jorden was happy and excited to be home in time to attend his Little League practice that night.

Since then he has had practices and scrimmages (9 in 10 days) for both his travel team and his Little League team.  Today was his first travel team game, and they played a double-header in South Daytona.

It was with such satisfaction, happiness and pride that we watched Jorden bat and take the field today. This is what Jorden has been dreaming and thinking about since getting sick, and it was so nice to see him play so well. Jorden’s talent and ability is still there and his determination to get to this point was rewarded with solid plays.  At one at bat Jorden had such a smile on his face; as he stepped up to the plate you could see the true joy he has for the game.

Even though the team lost both games. They played well and Jorden fielded well, was walked twice, scored twice and had an RBI.

Today was truly an accomplishment, a day that has been in the making for nine months.  We have prayed for this day, for our child to be well and do what he loves.  We are so thankful.

Jorden is also excited for his  Little League season to start. Opening ceremonies are this Friday night at Dr. Phillips Little league field.

Tomorrow at 9am we once again head to the hospital for blood work and chemo – we are hoping that Jorden makes counts.

This past week his liver function tests were much better. We are hoping for even better counts tomorrow. If all goes well, he will have chemo each day this week Monday through Friday.
