First of all it has been almost 3 weeks since you had chemo! What a difference 3 weeks can make! You look and act like your feeling better every day. Your color is good. Your spirits are up, and you are riding your bike!! Woo Hoo! I love that! It makes me so happy when I get glimpses of the old WeeMee. You definitely still tire easily, and you still have a good size appetite, but thats easy stuff!

Recently, daddy's cousin Lacey told me about a family that just found out their 9 year old has AML. Her chances arent so good as yours, and her cancer is a lot more aggressive. I keep thinking about this poor family and cant help but cry. How terrible a thing to have to face with a good prognosis like yours, but to have to face this knowing the odds are not in your favor...I dont think I could do it. It says a lot about the strength of this family. The Lord knows they can do it. Whenever Im having a hard time I always think about how the Lord has promised us that we will face no trial we cannot overcome. I take great comfort in that... knowing that the Lord thinks I can do this. I hope the family of that little girl knows that too. They have a long hard road ahead and my heart goes out to them. I will remember them in my prayers.
It turned out good that you didnt get chemo for one reason. We found out on the 12th that Alyssa had to get surgery on her foot! We took her into the dr because she had a bump on her foot that wouldnt go away and was hurting her. Turns out it was a lipoma (a fatty tissue cyst) that had to be removed....on Thursday. The same day you were scheduled for chemo. Me and daddy decided he would go with you and I would stay with Alyssa. Weird to think he'd be at a surgery for you (another back poke) while I was at a surgery with Alyssa. Amazing how everything works out. Alyssa was a trooper and has bounced back with little to no pain. I have such brave, tough kiddos.
