An Admission – Finally!!

Lizzy’s blood counts were high enough yesterday to allow for an admission today.  After arriving for Lizzy’s 7:30am appointment this morning, the first order of business was to make sure her body was hydrated enough for chemo. Unfortunately, it took a lot longer than we anticipated for her body to get sufficiently hydrated, so her chemo treatments didn’t get started until late this afternoon.

However, while getting fluids through her IV, Lizzy received a visit from a very special guest!

Lizzy also got her picture taken as part of the decorations that the CBDI floor (Cancer and Blood Disorders Institute) will use to decorate their Christmas tree in the lobby of the hospital.

She continues to bring joy and smiles to everyone around her!

If all goes as planned, Lizzy will be home just in time for Thanksgiving. The day before Thanksgiving, Nov 21, will be the one year mark of Lizzy’s diagnosis. It’s hard to believe a year has gone by. So much has happened. I think we’ve squeezed in a decade or so of living in this one year. I’ll have more on all of this when we get to the one year anniversary.

In the meantime, thank you so much for your continued love and prayers and support.

Soli Deo Gloria.
