We are thankful to report that nothing to out of the ordinary (if there is such a thing when going through treatment for cancer ...) has happened in the past week or so. Marielles number still drop , she still gets chemo , platelets , and blood .. but her mood has been very up and she is studying , and doing her crafts. They will be scheduling another bone marrow test to see if the cancer has gone into remission yet , but we will let you know when that will be . Her appetite is still good , she has gotten to visit a few friends .. so for all that the baby has to go through things are some what normal this past week ! THANK GOD !

Now a wee bit of news about me... I have been feeling so good this past week and boy does mommy cherish times like these... i haven't shown any interest in toys for at least 2 years .. and i even grabbed a toy mommy was packing up to send to a pal ... mom was shocked.. i think i even shocked my self ! We have been going for stroller rides every evening , and i have been sleeping all night which i have never done in the 7 years since mom adopted me ! so for whatever reason .. we are so THANKFUL ! Mom says i have spring fever ! what ever we hope it continues for a long time !

Hoppy Easter everyone !

First .. let us say that Marielles first day home was super duper !!! She posted in her journal at least three times herself !!!!.. was , eating like crazy and really enjoying being home ! It was a great day ! Second... it was like spring here, upper 60's and beautiful. Buttercup got to go for a wheelie ride in her stroller and really enjoyed being out of her yard ! We came home and she got a bath .. but the amazing thing is she didn't nap at all ...all afternoon .. which was a first in a long while ... it was 10:00 pm and she was still walking around wagging her tail not even tired.. we haven't seen that in so long ... mom was thinking .. are you ever gonna go to sleep !! finally around 10:30 she finally went to sleep ... but she still was up at her 4:00 a.m. time .. soon as the time changes it will be 5:00 AM before she gets up LOL !!!! anyways .. looks like everyone had a great day yesterday ! Maybe it was the weather changing ! you know SPRING FEVER !

HUGS,
PAT & BUTTERCUP

So better news.. Marielles numbers are coming up .. Her ANI is 118 .. better than 18 but not good enough to go home..they want it to be 200 and they are most comfortable with it around 500... so a few more days in the hospital . Tonight mommy and daddy took chinese food for dinner to the hospital per Marielles request .. and boy what a buffet they had .. Marielle ate very well , was talkative and laughing !! wohooo !!! she even wanted to walk to take a plate of food to her new friend the guard that checks every visitor in and out of the pediatric ward. It was the most walking se had done since being admitted 10 days ago .. on the way back her little hip gave out on her and she feel to her knees .. it really scared her and so she was crying...she didn't hurt herself and we had her laughing in no time ! ..as we left she was asking for her night time medication which she says she hates to take,.. but she knows it is fighting to make her better , because she wanted to go to sleep .. She is a CHAMP , OUR HERO ! Keep the prayers coming !

Love you all,
Pat & Buttercup

Marielles numbers aren't rebounding so she is in isolation ..they have pushed back her scheduled chemo in the spine for tomorrow to Friday .. Only if her numbers start to come up! I'm sure many of you know what we are talking about.. She is sleeping a lot , and is in discomfort with a few sores in her mouth . ... So Popsicles are good , as is ice cream or milk shakes ! No idea as to when or if she will be allowed to go home ...Thank you all for the continued prayers ..god Bless you all and we will continue to update !

Yes .. you guessed it .. she is back in the hospital again .. oh what a long road this is ! She woke this morning with another fever which means she must go to the hospital and have all the test run to rule out any infections... her bodies ability to fight infection is nil so she can't take a chance .She also needed to get platelets . She will most likely be there until Monday afternoon sometime .. and of course she has to go back on Thursday for another injection of chemo in her spine . I know so many of you have gone through chemo yourselfs or know someone that has .. you have to agree .. they are true HEROS !
