2 busy weeks ahead

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We made it to Kemah, after 2 hours in traffic, to watch amazing fireworks. Karly has really enjoyed having Sam and Marcus here. She misses home, but having them here has made it easier for her.

These next 2 weeks are going to be busy for Karly. Today she had lab work done. We were not planning on going back until Thursday, but plans are always changing, and Karly will go back Wednesday at 11am. Her platelet level is low and if it is not up Wednesday morning she will receive platelets there in the pedi clinic. Thursday she is scheduled for chest xrays, a CT scan and a bone scan. Friday she will have another MRI, she HATES having MRIs. I completely understand why, that is the loudest thing!

Next week is full of clinic visits for blood work and doctor appointments. We will have follow up visits with Dr. Lewis, the orthopaedic surgeon, and Dr. Mahajan, the radiation doctor. On Thursday, July 16th (Lexie's 5th birthday), Karly will be admitted for cycle 6 of chemo.

After Karly's lab work this morning, we went and sat with Shaunie Selman and her family. Donny had brain surgery at MD Anderson today. The surgery went well and Donny was awake and talking when I left at 6:30 this evening. Please keep them in your prayers.

Thank you all for your continued support. We love you!

  1. What a busy week indeed! Tell Karly I will be thinking of her during her tests. Yuck! Tell her I said to "hang tough!" ;)
    I'm working on scheduling a time that we can come. Maddie has been sick - bronchitis/pneumonia and they want me to go back to work in 2 weeks. :(
    big love and prayers to you both!
