Monday 10/20


Mike here again (From Mott's Hospital) Here's a snapshot of the kids this past weekend. We are back at Mott's for the 6th round of Chemotherapy. Looks like surgery will have to wait for a few more weeks. The team here at the hospital decided they'd like to reduce the masses even further before going in after them. A bright spot in this is that she'll be home for Halloween - so long as she doesn't crash about then. (low platelets or white blood cells or something) Hey, maybe she should dress up as a "low hemogoblin".
Maranda is now aware of her condition as well. She was shaken at first. The thought of surgery frightens her most I think. (Us too) We're trying to move up the date to talk to the neurosurgeons about her condition to this week since we're here. We'll pass along any updates as they become available.
Thank you for the constant stream of prayers and positive energy, they continue to sustain us.
