We're on!

Woke up at 5:00 am for a 6:30 am procedure downtown at Children's. Liz's counts were good enough to start Delayed Intensification 2, ON TIME! This has never happened, she has never started a phase on time nor has she ever ended a phase on time. God does still work and show miracles.

I will up-date you with what this phase will entail later on this weekend. Please pray that she gets to go to the homecoming. She has been nominated for freshmen attendant and we will find out in a few hours if she will be on the court or not. Joel, her cancer buddy and classmate has also been nominated. More importantly, in the grand scheme of things, please pray for her vital organs to be protected in this phase. DI2 is intense on her heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver. Effects from these chemo's are irreversible.

Please keep all these children and their families in your prayers. Children's is such a blessing and I thank God everyday that we have such a wonderful hospital in our backyard, but it can also be a very sad place to be.

Love and prayers to all of you,

Always, always, always in our prayers.
My daughter just texted me from lunch (pretend like I didn't just say that) but she said that Liz won Homecoming court. She is so happy for her!

Hey Liz, you better start practicing that big smile and queen wave for the homecoming. Congratulations! Maybe I will show you a picture of me from high school when I was the queen. It is hilarious. 1970's ya know. Have a great time and praying for no nausea. We would not want barf on that beauty queen dress. Love, Annette
