Clinic Update

Today's clinic was a breeze. Mollie was in such a good mood that when Kate asked her which finger she wanted her to prick for the blood sample, Mollie said, "How 'bout all of them!!??" Her ANC is perfect at 1400 (that's the prelim... Beth said she would let us know if the manual count differed significantly).

Mollie had a good day at school and got to eat dinner at one of her favorite restaurants tonight. And she ate a chocolate bunny for dessert. What could be better?


Easter Weekend

We had a fun Easter weekend up at Snow Hill (Matt's grandparents' farm). It's the first time we've been there since Mollie's diagnosis. I was a little paranoid about remembering to bring Mollie's medications and all the 'just in case' items like extra pills, thermometer, Huber needle (for port access), after all that was taken care of, everything else fell in to place.

We got there Friday afternoon and, after visiting with Mollie and George, we headed out for a bite to eat, followed by grocery shopping. By this time it was dark and we didn't realize we were about to be in the middle of a major storm. We got soaked and a little freaked out since we heard tornado warnings while we were driving on the Interstate, but made it back to the lodge safely. Then, on Sunday, we found out that a tornado touched down a mere half mile from where we were sleeping!!

We enjoyed baking cookies, fishing, dyeing Easter eggs, picking flowers, hunting eggs, church on Easter Sunday, and a fine dinner prepared by grandma Mollie and uncle Robert.

This week, it's back to school and clinic tomorrow to check counts. They increased Mollie's chemo a little (because she's grown) and they want to make sure she's tolerating the higher dose. Let's hope she is!
