This is my first post. I am doing good, the staff is really nice except the water here does not taste all that great. And, I get to carry around a way cool huge iv to the bathroom every 10 minutes due to the fluid they are pumping in to my body. I start treatments tomorrow, and i get a cool little tube put into my chest. Soooo today is actually good because I am just sitting here. Thankyou everyone for your love and support.

  4. Hey Rachel, your brave little brother "Sammy" just called us to let us know about your blog and what's been happening this week. We just want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and that you CAN do this. We will do what we can to keep Sammy busy and occupied. I also wanted to tell you that Tia came home last week from volleyball camp talking about you and how you guys won the warm up game that morning and how much fun she had winning with you. She really looks up to you and has enjoyed learning from you in volleyball and enjoyed your friendship. All the Bruins will be routing for you!
