Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the great comments about the hair (or lack of hair) pictures. It was nice to have something fun to post for a change. I read many of the comments to Ellie to encourage her in her new look...she was so pleased. She really does seem comfortable and secure in it. Your encouragement has helped!
Planned order of coming events:
Thursday - clinic appointment to check blood
Friday - bone marrow biopsies; possible hearing test
Possibly Friday - stay in the hospital to start round 5 of chemo
For now the race is on for Ellie to gain as much weight as possible. (After the next round of chemo she may have stem cell harvest as well as surgery to remove the adrenal gland w/tumor, so she may lose more weight next time than usual.) Her weight as of tonight was 48 pounds! We are happy about that, but she has a goal of making 50 pounds before chemo. We are so proud of how she's been eating these days, and it helps for her to have a goal to work towards.
Thanks so much for praying. I'll let you know how the rest of the week goes. Hope you all have a good day!
