Can you believe it is already August and school is just around the corner? We sure can't! Karly will stay enrolled in Seminole High School and she will complete her work through the school at MD Anderson.

Tuesday evening, we had a night out at the ballpark. We had a wonderful time. The Astros did not have a good night but we stayed until the very last out. I will post some pictures from the game.

Yesterday, we had lunch with Dana and Daniel Quisenberry. They were here in Houston for their check ups and they both got great reports. They are such a great inspiration to us. Dana is so full of knowledge and support for me and Daniel KNOWS exactly what Karly is going through and it is so great to see him now, so healthy! We loved Karly's radiation doctor the first day we met her, but we love her even more now that we found out she was also Dana's! Dana is proof they she is a GREAT doctor!

Karly went in today for regular blood work. She has had an irritating cough for the past few days, so the doctor listened to her to make sure her lungs were clear and she didn't need a chest xray. Her lungs sounded fine and she is taking some cough syrup. Her platelet level dropped 1/3 of what it was on Monday so we have to go back in tomorrow for more blood work and I expect her to receive platelets. Monday her level was 150,000, today it was 46,000 and it needs to be 150,000 or higher. Her white count has not increased much either even with me still giving her the injections. So, as they say "she will have her tank topped off" tomorrow.

Thank you for all the continued support.
