Happy Holidays

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is enjoying the last few days of 2008. Christmas was nice and things actually felt like the good old days. We didn't have to make any unscheduled trips to Motts!! Yeah!!

Lisa was slowing down a bit by Saturday and not surprisingly she need blood and plasma when she went in for her blood work on Sunday.

We were hoping it would be enough to boost her levels for today so she could have her stem cell collection done...unfortunately counts weren't high enough. On a good note, she was able to get anesthesia and get her temporary collection line put in AND was allowed to go home for the rest of the day (normally when kids get a temporary line they make them stay inpatient). She will go back tomorrow morning and if her blood counts are high enough, they will do the stem cell collection.

So, Lisa and I are enjoying the sun and watching the water rise at the lake house while we wait for Mike to return from work. The other kids are hanging out at home with their cousins from Alabama. We've quarantined ourselves here in the hopes of keeping Lisa away from colds and other bugs that family and guests are passing around our Canton home.

Oh, by the way......did you know that Mike is awesome!! Not only did he take Lisa in for blood work yesterday, he also did me the great favor of getting her to Motts by 6:30 this morning (a feat I am not capable of) for her procedure. I'm sure I'll have to make it up to him somehow...but I just wanted it to go on record where he could see it that he is awesome and I truly appreciate what he did. Mike---you rock!

I'm sure knowing Mike, he's already thought of a few "ways" he wants you to repay him;)

Yep, we always say: "Mike rocks". And, so does Linda and all the McMaster kids.
