Half-Way Done!

Wahoo! Lauren got her 9th week of chemotherapy today. Her ANC went up to 1600 by Tuesday so she could get her treatments today. It marks the half-way point. It's so exciting knowing next week there will be more weeks behind us then left to do. She did pretty well with lots of distraction today. She always HATES the smell of the alcohol-based cleaners they use to prepare her skin, so I let her sniff gum to make it a better experience. Courtney even joined us today so Brady could have a fun one-on-one time with Grandma at "This is the Place" and the Hoogle Zoo too! Courtney was the BEST baby and even slept for an hour of her appointment! Brady had the best time ever and has been telling me all about the pioneers and all he got to do. He even made me smell his face since they 'shaved' it for him. . .I'm sure my family will get a kick out of that. Thanks mom for EVERYTHING you do!

p.s. the ADORABLE hat was made by my Aunt Arlene. Thanks to her daughters and daughter in-laws (my cousins) too for the adorable hats and yummy freezer meals to have on hand. We have been showered with lots of LOVE and truly appreciate all the help we have been given. THANKS to all who have helped us!
