Stronger Indeed


Wow, I have hesitated over and over to post anything because I can’t think of anything better than to just watch the “Stronger” video over and over.  So…stronger.  Yes, stronger indeed.  The last several days, Allistaire has spent hours riding her bike.  Hours.  All she wants to do is ride her bike.  In the morning she pops up out of her crib and asks/declares, “Ride bike?!!”  At night when I put her to bed, it is the same thing.  When I tell her that there’s something we have to do, she says emphatically, “ride bike later.”  It has been so lovely to be outside walking and her intent on the joy of riding.

At her clinic appointment on Monday she had gained .3 kg since last Thursday.  Her ANC was up from 178 to 552; platelets were up from 122 to 212 and her hematocrit is now holding steady.  She is doing great and I am so hopeful that the results from Thursdays test will be great.  I asked Dr. Pollard if she thought we could get results back by the end of the day on Friday and she said yes, this should be possible.  It is nearly incomprehensible to me that we could be coming down to the last week of this.  Of course it won’t really be over, but her treatment will be and that is monumental!

So, here is a little look of Allistaire nudy sporting her tubies.  We look forward to those suckers being gone for good!
