Days 19 - 21 Consolidation - Nice surprises

It’s been a nice few days off from clinic visits and blood tests – especially since the weather has been so nice. It would have been better if Courtney could actually go out and enjoy it more. We have to limit her exposure to outdoor dust and pollens to avoid allergies that could lead to sinus infections. But still it’s been a blessing to have such beautiful weather in the middle of November.

On Friday, Courtney received a package from Jen Flynn’s 3rd Grade class in Omaha, Nebraska. Jen married my cousin Tom this past August, and Emma, Miranda and Aidan were able to participate in their wedding. It was really cute. Anyway, the package contained precious cards from every kid in the class. So…Thank You to Mrs. Flynn’s 3rd grade class for all of the wonderful thoughts and well wishes. Courtney really enjoyed them and had a huge smile on her face as she read each and every one.

That same night, Courtney also received a call from Amber, her long lost best friend from Utah. They had a lot of catching up to do since it had been over 4 years since they last spoke. Amber always had a way of making Courtney laugh, so she got a big dose of the “best” medicine Friday night. All in all, it was a wonderful way to start the weekend.

Tomorrow morning we go back to the clinic for a check up. Courtney will have her blood tested, and, if needed, will receive blood and/or platelets. That’s pretty much all there is for now. We’re still waiting for her blood results to return to normal to consider this round of chemotherapy officially over. As it is, we have just a little over two weeks to go before Courtney is readmitted to the hospital for the big BMT.

K, this might be the second comment I post because I didn't know what I was doing the first time. I just wanted to tell you that I love you and thank Todd again for finding me! My parents send their best. Scott does, too. He looked up your website and he said, "she still has her beautiful eyes". Hugs to all of you! Amber

Laughter really is the best medicine. We are glad you had a pleasant weekend. It was good to see the family today. Sorry we did not have more time to talk. It was a busy day in Primary. We miss your sweet disposition so much and can't wait to have you back with us. We hope that tomorrow is a good day!!

Hi Courtney! I'm so glad you had a good weekend free of clinic, that's a nice break I'm sure. We're up here in Utah enjoying some nice weather also but it's supposed to get ugly tomorrow so enjoy some sunshine for us! :) Have a great Thanksgiving!

I came across your blog through one I check often. I will keep you and your family in our prayers. My dad is fighting small cell cancer and I know how hard this is for you and your family. Have a happy Thanksgiving.
