Nonna.… Day 500 29MAR10

Today is Nonna's birthday! Well tomorrow actually but you are reading this today not yesterday when I wrote it ;) We all wish her a wonderful birthday and wish we could be there to celebrate it with her. She lives much too far away and we miss her. We have got to figure out how to get Virginia closer to Florida…

Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!

Today is also day 500! We have been at this for quite a while and unfortunately we still have far to go. It is hard to believe that so much time has passed.

Joshua went to the clinic today and his counts are still okay at a little over 1000. They have dropped a little bit and his chemo has been ramped back up to full strength so we will be very interested in how his counts are looking next week. After clinic the boys and Renee headed over to my parents house for a bit before heading home to get some school work and play time taken care of. Renee has been busy putting the finishing touches on Joshua's party preparations for his birthday this weekend. She is a fantastic party planner and I know Joshua will enjoy it a lot. The weather will, we hope, cooperate and be lovely. So far the forecast is looking good.

So as we pass by the 500 mark on our journey we say thanks to all of you who have journeyed with us so far! There is lots more road ahead and we will continue to traverse it one step at a time.

500 days - what a significant number. Joshua, you are a true warrier and are still kicking cancer butt. Jarrod watching you grow into this amazing young man through this has been a joy.

Happy birthday to "Nonna" also! Have a great day:)

Lee, Renee' and family are very special people. I know you wish Florida was a lot closer also.

Love, Miss Laura
