This started out as the adventures of Rubi and Grady, two boxers that always seemed to have a story to tell. Rubi, 7yo, tells the story of her and her brother, Grady – who recently passed away from cancer (histiocytic sarcoma) at the age of 4. This is Rubi's "tail" of everything from dealing with Grady's diagnosis, coping with his death, to how life goes on now with her new brother, Bauer! The adventure continues while Rubi still tries to be the center of attention in a world as big as her own.

YAY!!! No More Radiators!!
Today was Grady's last day of special doctors, going bye-byes and leaving me here by myself and last day of his radiation therarpy. It's been 6 weeks....a long 6 weeks....and 6 treatments, but the beans are happy with how he's gotten better.
This is what his boo-boo looks like today (the day of his last radiation):
And just to give an idea of what it looked like before radiation. This pic was taken on January 7, 2012:
So that big lump is gone and because of that, the beans said he doesn't have to have those radiator treatments anymore. Which is great....cuz he comes home all tired and smells funny each time they take him.
