Vacation? What did you say.… Day 528 26APR10

We started of our day early and headed off to the clinic to get Joshua accessed and get some blood drawn for labs. He did great and it was over in just a few minutes. While we waited for his counts to come back he played with Wotjek and Jarrod. His ANC came back at 864 which is lower than it has been in quite a while so we will be keeping a close watch for a bit. The results from the IVIG test will not be back for a few days so we do not know yet if that will continue or not. After we left we headed over to the Children's Cancer Center to drop off a bunch of things that were left over from the memorial service for my mother. We decided to donate them in her name to the cancer center. As we were leaving we got hit with a big surprise, a benefactor of the center had just donated a condo on the beach for a week and they wanted to know if we would like to use it. So after taking a few seconds to let it all register we said sure! We would love to take a vacation at the beach for a few days. So tomorrow afternoon we are headed over to Pass-a-grille beach to stay for the rest of the week. The boys are terribly excited and are looking forward to being in the water most of the time. Renee and I are just looking forward to a little rest and relaxation time. What a wonderful surprise especially since I am in between semesters this week!

We stopped by to see my dad for a bit afterwards and then took a quick side trip to take a picture of the billboard that Joshua and Madison are on. It is pretty unusual to see a picture of your child suspended forty feet above the ground, but it is pretty neat.

The rest of the afternoon was consumed with school work. Joshua has a spelling test tomorrow so we studied for that before I went into Tampa to take care of some stuff with my dad and have dinner with him and Danny before he leaves to go back to Alabama.

Vacation in Pass-A-Grille, that's a wonderful gift and we are so glad you are able to use it right now. It will give you some decompression time and lots of beach and water time. Enjoy every minute of you because you all truly deserve it.

Love, Laura & Frank
