A beautiful day!

Difficult to express in words what this weekend has been like for us! We have throughly enjoyed having our entire family home for thanksgiving weekend. We have alot to be thankful for!
Lizzy's new room, which has been created to be a safe haven for when her ANC's are low is complete! Hardwood floors, air purifier, no tables left unturned! We are ready for round two, Consolidation! The purpose of consolidation therapy is to kill any remaining leukemia. Consolidation therapy starts tuesday morning and lasts about 57 days. We are expected to be at Childrens for the first 2-4 days after the chemo Liz receives Tuesday morning.
Christine and I are SO thankful for the prayer support that you all have provided for us. It is SO evident, God has blessed us with your care.
Your cards, meals, comments on the blog, emails have supported us, lifted us up everyday! The night we came home our neighbors even had our neighborhood lit up with luminaries, it brought us to tears. Liz is refueled and ready to go!
I wanted to leave you tonight with a verse that a friend of Christine shared with her that really moves me. Hope it resonates with you as well.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

Hey Liz,
Way to go kickin' some blast booty! We're still praying that the kicking will continue until there's no blast left to give the boot! (PS: Tell your Uncle John he should really do a triathlon with Team in Training and Coach Bob in your honor!!) Love and prayers, Lisa and the rest of the Duncans

Dear Goddaughter

I was so excited to hear that you got to go home for the Thanksgiving
holiday. What a day for thanks. You are a beautiful person inside and out, and the best part is that it shows all the time. Be strong and faithful for he is always with you.

Luv Uncle Joe

Hey Liz!
We Dodsons are thinking of you as you enter your new phase of treatment. Keep your eye on the prize! Every hospital stay gets you closer to being cancer free! Don't linger on how far you have to go. Focus on how far you've come and on your next trip home. But you might tell your mom to check Sonny's diet. He was stinkin' up the place this weekend!
Love Ya!
Mrs. D.
