We have lost track as things have gotten very crazy at our house. Marielle's birthday party went off last week-end. It was a carnival theme fully equipped with a snow cone machine and old fashion popcorn machine . The kids had their faces painted and fun having water gun battles and jumping in the jumping house. Marielle managed to get her face painted and than wanted to go back to bed. She was happy knowing her friends were having a good time. She was awoken to blow out her candles and to open presents. It was very hot so the heat wasn't the best for her. Monday morning she had to be back at the hospital for a 3 day stay for a chemo procedure but on Sunday evening she spiked a high fever and had to go in early. Due to that they did not do the procedure but she had to stay for observation. She came home yesterday but has to go back today. They will recheck blood and possibly do the procedure today which will be at least another 3 day stay ! Oh she is very tired of all of this .. but we all trudge forward. I have been babysitting with Hudson ( her brother) since school is out and i must say he is such a joy to be with. His eyes are so expressive and we have had great fun just relaxing at home playing good old fashion board games. It has done my soul good !

Now for a Buttercup update. Her stomach has finally settled down after a 2 week up and down of gastritis i think i have things back under control . I actually have gotten to sleep 5 hours straight for 2 nights in a row. We see Dr's. in about 3 weeks for repeat blood work to check her kidneys .. but i think they are better since she is finally responding better. We will keep yas posted !

Hugs to all ,
Pat & Buttercup

Sorry we're a little late getting to this. :(
Marielle is a true inspiration to other children in her situation. It's too bad she had to miss out on most of the party, but it must've lifted her up to know that her friends were having a good time. What a great friend she is as well. :)

We're also glad that Buttercup's improving.

Look forward to talking over pmail with you whenever you're up to it. XD

Someday when she's all better, Marielle will be able to encourage other sick children and grown-ups. Bless her heart.

Buttercuppy, I'm glad your tummy has settled down. {{hugs}}
