Chemo/Chili's - Day 4 of Round 9

September 23rd -- today at Chili's Restaurant 100% of all net profits go to St Jude's for the children and Childhood Cancer Research. All you have to do is go in and eat or order out.  We don't normally eat out, but tonight we decided to eat out for the kids and for Emily.  #morehope

Today also is Day 4 of Round 9, which means its time to start the chemo. Hopefully this chemo remains easy on her stomach and she does well and can handle school ok. We will do the chemo at night since there really is no other time that she can do it since she is in school and then having 3 hours of no eating. She did really well with this when we did it during Round 8, so I'm sure she will handle it well this time. Because her weight went up, Dr Gowda increased her irenotecan a little bit also.  We are hopeful for another easy round of chemo.

Daddy went and had lunch again with Emily today since he was is working late. Emily enjoys having daddy come for lunch just as much as daddy enjoys going.

Busy times coming ahead with celebrating Emily's younger sisters birthday Thursday, she will be 4. Older sister has a dance on Friday night and then 2 birthdays next week, daddy's birthday on October 2nd and older sister Jessie's birthday on October 3 (she will be 12)!

Just a quick update with how things are going. We will continue to keep you up to date.

Remember to hug and kiss your kids and tell them how much you love them.


A few things going on right now, a couple of fundraisers:
