On several occasions the doctors have stated that they are very happy with both Natalie and Alice's response to this whole process. Once again, we tribute this to the many prayers being offered.
Alice finished her last pre-transplant chemo therapy today. She has done well and looks fabulous. She is still playing well enough. She received her first blood transfusion today. It bothered her a little, but was well enough. Tomorrow is transplant (day zero), a big day for her as we celebrate her "new life" birthday.
I have kept a prayer in my heart all day for Alice's donor. She donated today, and the marrow will be on a flight for Utah so Alice can receive it tomorrow . We are very thankful for her.
I think Tyler had the hardest day today. He's feeling a little cabin fever, so he went for a run outside to get some fresh air. He and I have been taking turns finding a bit of time to exercise. Sometimes just going outside for some fresh air is very therapeutic.
Evie had another wonderful field trip to my Uncle Dale and Aunt Michelle's house. My Aunt and Uncle have been able to take her for the daytime and then bring her back to me in the evening. She always comes back happier; Tyler and I feel so thankful for the extra help.
Tomorrow we will post lots of fun photos and videos. Stay tuned. :)
Love to all,
