We will always remember Ellie for her love for others, her creativity, sensitivity, and delight in life! Ellie's light has spread far and wide... may it continue to shine in our hearts.

Ellie's blood counts were pretty good today, but the platelets were not high enough to start chemo...yippee! We are scheduled to take her in for bone marrow biopsies on Tuesday and then start chemo on Wednesday or Thursday. I am so glad. We will have 5 or more days...for her to EAT. So that's the big news.

After the clinic appointment, we went to visit Ellie's new second cousin who is one week old. We've pretty much been keeping Ellie in a bubble these days, so we figure that a new baby is the safest person for her to be around...and vice-versa. Ellie was thrilled - she was able to hold baby Aiden and even helped to feed him his bottle.

Hi. I live in Topeka Kansas and wanted you to know that my kids and I have been praying for Ellie and your family. Your story is an awesome picture of how the Lord holds us in His hand and guides us through the hard times. Keep looking to the Lord.
