Chemo cycle #11 is over! Yippee!

Karly's blood levels were finally back where they needed to be on Monday and she was able to do chemo cycle #11. Everything went smoothly, she received both chemo drugs at the clinic plus the mesna and then came home with a backpack of fluids. She had radiation both Monday and Tuesday and is doing great with it. Twelve radiation treatments down and only 19 more to go.

Saturday we all had a great day at a Pumpkin Painting Party at the home of one of the nursing assistants at the pedi clinic. We took to Miss Carmen right off and she is great with all the kids. She was kind enough to invite us to a party she was having. The girls both had a great time. Lexie ran around with the kids, rolled in the grass and climbed trees like a wild woman. Two of Karly's nurses and their children were also there. One of the nurses has been out since September 9th so it was great to get to see her, she is recovering from breast cancer surgery. Cancer knows NO boundaries, she takes care of children all day that are suffering from cancer and she was also hit by the same monster. She is doing great, and looked as beautiful as ever.

The rest of the week Karly will have radiation every day and blood work on Thursday. Thank you again for all your love and prayers! Please continue to pray for Robert, Monica and their children.
