Back for More

The Fashionista: tilted hat, bald head, purple arm sock and two different shoes. You make it look GOOD, Faye!

Faye went back to the hospital today to begin Round 3 of Chemo. Everyone was getting anxious because they only like to have 30 days between the beginning of rounds and Faye was at day 45. Her counts had been up to 500 but when she was tested again today they had dropped to 460. They don't know why and talked for a minute about sending her home! Luckily they didn't and she had a bone marrow biopsy, some AraC, and was admitted to a new room. The preliminary results of the biopsy look good but more thorough results are coming soon.

Here's some pictures of Faye's short stay at home...

Making "Cutter Cookies"

Aaahhhh... normal kid stuff. Thank goodness she gets a little of that in the midst of all this. But, let's keep telling that cancer who's boss! YOU ARE FAYE! Round 3 here we come!

My kids like to quote Punky Brewster "I have two different feet so I wear two different shoes." Your new kitchen looks nice! Nixon looks way too big. Guess I'll be seeing it all in person soon!
