Weekend Update

Mollie had an enjoyable birthday, even with the steroids. She had cupcakes with her class at school. Then, after school, Isabella came over and played and helped Mollie open her gifts. Then we went out to dinner. Mollie's choice: Ruby Tuesday. She wanted ham, and ham she got.

The rest of the weekend was uneventful. The weather was warm, but we managed to keep our new Peruvian hats (from Mollie's friend Izzy and family) on long enough to snap a photo.

Mollie is very happy to be done with this round of steroids. She spent this afternoon playing at Isabella's house and baking a cake.

Mollie has had nausea and tremors (shaky hands) in the mornings recently. I think it might be a side effect of the 6-MP; it is known to cause hypoglycemia. The steroids probably exacerbate the problem because of the fluid retention, so hopefully she will get some relief now that this steroid pulse is over.


  1. A belated Happy Birthday to my hero, Mollie! I believe that the King family looks positively perfect in their Peruvian pizzazz!

  2. Can't believe Lu kept the hat on that long- cute picture!! I'm hypoglycemic-- they've probably told you what to do, but my doc says to carry peanut butter/cheese crackers around, as well as life savers. Proteins break down slowly and give you the sugars, but life savers are good in case you need a boost!
