|Thank you to my niece, Katie, for making this.
Tomorrow Emily has clinic for lab counts to see where here counts are. Hopefully she doesn't need any transfusions and hopefully her counts are on the up and up and she will be back in school by mid week. Emily has a cough right now, which at first she only had at night when she was sleeping, but she has it during the day now, so hopefully its just a cough and nothing else.
We still haven't had an update on what is going to be covered with the shots that Emily will need for antibodies, so we hope that everything will work out and we won't need to pay out of pocket. I know that we needed to send a copy of our prescription card over to have them review it through there, but we haven't had any update since then.
We also are not sure when antibodies will start since we are waiting for the approval, so as soon as we know more about that, we will update you all about antibodies since we have had a lot of people asking questions about what it involves and why Emily needs it?
Again as it appears we will be traveling to Michigan during the week of October 8th, we will probably be driving this time since we are still waiting on dates. The last email I had was from our nurse, Julie, from Helen DeVos who said they were working on dates, so we should be hearing soon.
Our fanbase picked up on facebook, so lately I've been getting messages on facebook from fans on things that are helpful for us and where to send things for Emily, and I just wanted to let you guys know the address is:
PO Box 5383
Midlothian, VA 23112
Things that continue to be helpful is gas gift cards for traveling, gift cards,and just cards for Emily. Emily loves to check her mail and see cards that people make her. She absolutely love cards, and she thanks everyone of you who sends her cards thinking of her, it puts a smile on her face. Today Emily received a card from Ashley's Special Cards and she loved the card all done up with Justin Bieber. It was really sweet.
We will continue to keep you updated on how things are going. Keep spreading the awareness of childhood cancer and our children, and make sure you hug and kiss your kids and tell them how much you love them.
