Karly's birthday was on Friday and if you have to be in the hospital on your birthday I guess the Children's Hospital at MD Anderson is the place to be. The nurses sang to her, she got balloons, a cake, a card and a Target gift card from the hospital. Lexie and I had decorated the apartment for her, I think Lexie enjoyed the decorations the most!:) The 3 of us enjoyed pizza, cake and Karly opened all her cards and gifts from everyone. Then we went to SLEEP!
Karly is doing good. We are so thankful that this round was easier than the last round of 5 days. Yesterday, she even felt like going out for Mexican food at one of our new favorite places.
We both would like to ask all of you amazing prayer warriors to add our friends Keaton and his mom, Karen to your prayers. Keaton had testing done this past weeks and the results were not what we had hoped for. Keaton is a very strong young man and we know he will continue to beat the odds! Keaton and Karen have been here since September of 2007 and we look to them often for advice and information. They have become great friends to us. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/keatonlee
Thank you so much for all the cards, calls, text messages, flowers, and gifts for Karly's birthday. She really did have a good birthday even though she was not at home!
