Chemo Postponed

Well, Audrey's numbers were not high enough to do chemo. Grandma Beadle, Audrey and I were deciding what to do for the weekend and we had a few plans. We spent most of the day laying around the room on Friday - as laying down is the only position that feels good for my back. When I was getting ready for the day on Saturday I had a thought - why didn't we go to Venice for the weekend? Ryan and Nathan were not coming down because we had planned on being in the hospital for Chemo and now that was cancelled. So, we jumped in the car and headed off to Venice. We weren't able to get together with any of our friends because Audrey's numbers are so low she is very vulnerable to any germs which might then translate into infection. But we were able to spend some time in the pool - it was wonderful for my back, and Audrey kicked around the pool with swimmies! (Sorry to all of my northern readers who are still bundled from the cold!)

Relax while you can! You guys can do this!

Audrey's prize should be delivered to your house on Thursday, so I hope Ryan & Nathan are coming down this weekend to bring it to you guys! :D Hope you like it. And just a hint, you'll want to look carefully at the packaging materials inside!

Tonya, I am so glad that you publish your blog to keep us updated on what is going on in your life. I know that it must be theraputic for you to write this. I hope that you can save it to review in years to come. I think and pray about your family often. I know that there are many other people that do also. I see that you are finding as much enjoyment as you can at this difficult time. Audrey has adjusted amazingly well and certainly will learn a lot from this experience We love you all!
