Round 6

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

We started round 6 of chemo on time on Wednesday, November 9th. This round consisted of 3 days of inpatient chemo and then we were able to do the last 2 days at home. So Sunday, November 13th started with some chemo in the morning and then we finished it off with a Bears game in the afternoon! Thanks to my cousin Scott and Harris Bank, we were given quite the VIP experience.

They had some gifts for us and wouldn’t you know, the foam bear claw was the biggest hit!

Bear down!

It was a beautiful 70 degree mid November afternoon. It was a great day for a football game and Drew had an awesome time - until he puked in the 3rd and we called it a night.

We then spent the next couple of days playing “Bears Game”.

This particular day, he recruited Brooke to play too. They put their jerseys on and Drew came to me and said, “ok mom, now chase me and tackle me!”

I don’t know if you can see the football under his arm in this picture, but he insisted on posing like this and acting all fierce and intense.

Drew still has weakness in his right leg and some of the chemo affects his feet making it hard to lift his toes at times. Now this doesn’t really limit his getting around at all and he climbs and plays like normal, but we talk a lot about how when he gets better and stronger, he will be able to run again. Well he asked me to go find his little football and when I brought it to him he said, “mom, I want to run.” Then with such confidence he backed up down the hall and took off with the best stride we have seen since this all started!

Kelsey is 5 months old now and is rolling all over.

Drew & Dallin

Boys - somehow everything always turns into a "shoot" game. Good thing Dallin is such a good little actor, he keeps the game interesting each time he's "hit".

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are so grateful to all be home together as a family for the holiday. We also wanted to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all that you have done for us. Whether it has been bringing us a meal, shopping, helping with the kids, sending a card or picture, words of encouragement, prayers, volunteering and fundraising or other selfless acts of giving, we can't express enough our thankfulness. We are very humbled to know how many people care and love and support us. Please know that all of your efforts have been received and have helped to sustain us through this. We count our blessings every day as they are numerous and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
