Clinic Update

Mollie had a clinic visit today. Liam had his 2 month appointment today too.

Can I just tell you how sick & tired I am of clinic waiting rooms?

Mollie got her 2nd H1N1 shot and they measured her blood cell counts. Her chemo dose was increased last visit because her height had increased, so we had this mid-cycle visit to check counts to see how she is tolerating the higher dose. Her ANC is 1600- perfect. All her other cells are in the normal range, so her next appointment for IV chemo is in 2 weeks. And... this brave kiddo took the shot like a champ!


Weekend Round-Up

We went to the horse races (the Aiken Trials) on Saturday in Aiken, SC. We had never done it before and it was fun! The weather was just a bit cold, but we only caught a few minutes of rain. The girls made their picks as the horses were paraded around the paddock before each race and they enjoyed watching the jockeys in their colorful silk jerseys mount up just before they went off to the gates. We brought snacks and drinks and tailgated during the down time.

Today was Mollie's birthday party revisited. Since Bella was sick last weekend, we had her over for another tea party today. She and Mollie played all day long and Mollie went out to dinner with Bella's family tonight. It struck me how much both Mollie and Bella have matured since they first became friends. Today they were both perfect little ladies, no whining or bickering from either one!

My big triumph was managing to get a few pictures of all 3 of my children at the same time. Next challenge: the whole family.
