I am so very sorry that it's been a while since the last post. Let's see, what's new.

Kami went back to the hospital for a little to get rehydrated and receive a part of her chemo treatment. She had to stay for about a week until she got through some rough spots with some of the side effects. She developed ulcers in her mouth again and had to get a blood transfusion. She pushed through all of those and is doing better.

She wasn't aable to be home for Thanksgiving, but the docs released her for a couple of hours to be with us all at Grandma's house for a huge Thanksgiving dinner. It was great to see her with the rest of us, she's a big reason for why we are all so grateful at this time of year. She played with her cousins and sisters, ate a little teeny bit of Thanksgiving dinner, and sat on our laps. She was smiling and giggling and giving high fives.

She was discharged the next day and spent the weekend at home. Kami was at Spencer's , my son, birthday party, last night, and asked to sit closer to Spencer when she couldn't see him open his present's from across the room! She was in good spirits, but pretty tired and little cranky towards the end.

Tomorrow, Kami leaves with her sisters and Grandma for Pittsburgh. In the event that she needs to have a transplant or a more complicated surgery than the docs can handle in Hershey, she will need to have preliminary tests and work done before hand. They will be in Pittsburgh for a couple days. Her fourth round of chemo will start after she gets back.

Thanks to everyone who has helped and prayed and donated and done some much for my brother's family. It means more than you can ever know.

  1. I'm glad she got to have a little Thanksgiving with the fam! What a precious girl. I hope their trip to Pittsburgh goes well, and I'm sure they'll enjoy being with Grandma! Thanks for the updates.
