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.

Just wanted to let you know that today is a pretty easy day. We will go to the hospital for some blood work this afternoon and then Ellie will recieve a radioactive injection (in her medi-port, so not painful) to prepare her for the MIBG scan tomorrow. So there's nothing painful or difficult to anticipate today.

The schedule tomorrow is an opthalmologist appointment in the morning, followed by the MIBG scan. The scan is not overly difficult - just a lot of lying still for a while. Thursday Ellie will have her bone marrow aspirations and biopsies. That will be the hardest day. They take samples of her bone marrow from 4 different locations in her pelvis - two from the front and two from the back. The worst part is that it is just difficult for Ellie to find a comfortable position to lie down afterwards. But she usually recovers quickly. We fly out Friday evening.

Thanks for all of the prayers for the tests!

We so much appreciate the updates and knowing how to pray! Please know we are celebrating Ellie's birthday with her. I'm sure it is amazing to walk those same halls that you've been away from for a while now. I am praying you'll have much much patience and endurance tomorrow.

I am glad you are enjoying your latest adventure in NY. Let Ellie know I have a new paper punch it is a paisley, and I have pink and purple paper to match the design.
