Day 34 Update - 16DEC08

Josh is doing good today, no ill effects from all the procedures yesterday, just a little sore.

 He got scheduled today for surgery on Friday to place his medi-port (finally...) but we do not know what time yet. Probably early in the day. It is an out patient procedure so he will not be staying more than a couple of hours. It will be much easier after his port is set and he can get his PICC line removed. The port will stay in place for the rest of his treatments.

Both Jarrod and Josh are counting down the days until Christmas, I love to watch the excitement in their eyes :)

Jarrod and Josh, I hope all your Christmas wishes come true. You guys look great!

Josh once the port is in it will be so much easier for the treatments to continue.

Only 9 days until Christmas. Renee and Lee you are such awesome parents. We feel very blessed to know you.

Love, Miss Laura & Frank

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

No shirt?!?!?!? Must be warm. I have on the obligatory two-three layers as usual.

Glad to hear you will get the port on Friday. Hope all goes well.

Only 8 more days before the jolly old fat man comes!!!!! I bet you both are sitting on the ceiling.

Keep fighting Snuggle Monkey - you're doing a fantastic job.

Love, hugs and kisses

Hi Josh, I had the pleasure of meeting your mom today, so now I can't WAIT to meet you! My name is Ms. Lydia (I'm also Talon's aunt) and I'll be working with Ms. O'Neill to help you finish up your first grade work. I use to work at Apollo Beach, so I know how wonderful your teacher is. Together, we are going to make sure that first grade ROCKS!!! Since we have dinner together every Wed. night at my mom's house, Talon is going to help me with our pen pal project. Start thinking about some questions you want to ask him and he'll write you back each week. Oops, I guess I should wait to meet you first before I start assigning homework, huh? No worries, your only assignment for now is to have a fantastic holiday and I'll see you in January!!!
Your friend,
Ms. Lydia
