Wow! Has it really been over 3 months since I updated the blog? I started a full-time job in a nutrition research lab in August and time just flies these days!
Mollie had her quarterly clinic appointment yesterday, which consists of a physical exam and CBC with differential. Dr. J says she is looking great and she has the blood counts to prove it! Her ANC is 4000- we got our Christmas wish! We have weathered a few fevers and colds without having to go to the hospital (although the anxiety made me want to check in to a mental hospital!). She is taking dance classes now (ballet, tap, and jazz) and is just enjoying being a kid. She is doing great in school, but her neuropsych evaluation revealed some areas of relative weakness. We are looking forward to meeting with a team at her school in January to develop and IEP or 504 plan to address these areas.
Lucy and Liam are doing just fine, too. We found a wonderful child care center and they have adjusted well. It is really warm and family friendly. Mollie goes there for after-school care and loves being there with her siblings!
I wanted to send a special THANK YOU to everyone who donated to CURE Childhood Cancer for Matt's NYC Marathon fundraiser. We raised $2150 for pediatric cancer research and support and Matt had a personal best!
Mollie doesn't have to go back to clinic for 3 months(!) but I promise I will update the blog before then. I think I need to do a big photo post.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
