Dear bloggers, I am sorry that I don't have a more exciting title for my post today, but today is wednesday so I thought it fit nicely. Not much new has happened, but I am due up for another transfusion which I am actually getting right now. I had a slight fever today but it didn't get too high and didn't stay for long. Oh! And I am done with chemo now, so now I'm just waiting for my counts to come back up.

I wanted to let you all know, that I am so grateful for all the support and prayers. I really feel so blessed to know so many great people. Even with the long days here in the hospital, I just feel so comforted to know I have got a lot of people on my side. The nurses and doctors here are amazing. I couldn't do this without you guys. I really appreciate all the prayers, thank you thank you thank you.

Things here are going good, I'll keep you updated.



  1. You are so loved Rachel!! I'm glad you are doing well and jumping back from round two!

  2. Hey Rachel,
    It's your cousin Missy. I just wanted you know that we were thinking about you out here in Austria and we have a little something heading your way :) Keep fighting! You are in my daily prayers.
    Much love,

  3. I'm glad to hear your fever didn't stay long and you're done with round two! I have you in my thoughts (and of course--prayers) when I look down at my orange bracelet many times a day!

  4. YAY! Round two is done! You know I think just 'Wednesday' is a great title! Nothing big happening is good news! Just simple day to day stuff is what we all want for you! You may think it is boring and it probably feels boring but boring is good!
    Watch movies! Eat lots of pudding, Play Checkers:)
    I love you all!
    Shelley STAY STRONG!
    I am doing a cake today for a couple girls I work, with who are doing a breast cancer 3-day walk! I keep thinking I wish I were there to do one for you and all who support you!
    I am away, but I am supporting you!
    Love ya

  5. Hey, no news/'boring' news is good news, right?! Jake still talks about "Rachel's duck" and has one just like it--only a LOT smaller. (Do you look at our blog? I don't want to repeat boring things!) I am glad we could see you last week. Your fish is still alive and kicking! Well, he is still looking at the corner... his name is Sparty, right? I have a BAD memory right now--okay, always. We love you and can't wait for you to get home!

  6. Rachel - Lyndi and I will be coming to see you this Sunday as we travel north to visit some schools. What's your schedule like around 11 am?

  7. Finished round 2! Nice work!
