Thursday Highlights

Highlights today include:

*Fever came down quite a bit

*After sleeping most of the day, Rachel woke up and actually had an appetite! Unfortunately, she was on a clear liquid diet and had to make do with Gatorade, clear chicken broth, and Sprite. Watch out tomorrow--pizza here I come!!

*On one of her trips to the potty, she didn't quite clear the door and bonked her head! No harm done...all three of us just laughed!

*Usually when I ask her what sounds good to eat she says, "Nothing!" But today she said, "Warm macadamia nut/white chocolate chip cookies with milk!". We just hope the appetite holds until tomorrow!

*The BYU Women's Volleyball Coaches came to visit her! You could tell it made her day!

*Some people have 5 pockets, or 5 brothers and sisters, or 5 golden rings...but Rachel has 5 different antibiotics going in at once! Seriously, we are glad that we are in a place where
Skilled nurses and doctors take good care of their patients. We know we are in good hands!



  1. YAY RACHEL! The fever is on its way down!! That makes me so so happy! We too are glad you are in good hands!
    WOW BYU! That is so great!
    Love you, i hope she gets another good nights rest!

  2. Hip Hip Hooray! I'm glad it was a good day. Please bless tomorrow is a good day too.
    And how awesome the BYU coaches came to see you.
    Have I rhymed enough yet? You want more I bet!

  3. Hi Rachel and the Steele family. We are thinking about you and will pray for a full recovery. My husband's 20 year old cousin has been battling cancer this past year so we know how tough it is! You are a wonderful family and have left a permanent mark on my life (I'm teaching piano lesson by the way Marie...thanks to a great piano teacher :) Glad to keep updated from the blog...hope to hear nothing but good news of your recovery!

  4. Hi Rachel,

    sleep well tonight.

  5. Hi Rachel,

    I bought a bus pass for Lyndi this week so that she can come visit you. While her driving skills are amazing, I would rather a professional driver take her all the way up to see you. After she returns from Youth Conference and is confident that she did not pick up any bugs while with 300 other youth, you can expect to see her at your door. Love you!


  6. Hey Rachel! I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing. You looked pretty dang great at girls camp. I've got orders for your T-shirts coming in left and right, they are gonna be sweet. Love you! -Mariah

  7. Hi Rachel, this blog is nice and full of love. I sent my love too. You will be always in our prayers. Enjoy the pizza!! Love, Mana Pang

  8. Hey Rachel,
