Homeward Bound

My counts began to come up saturday, and continued to rise enough so that I can come home today! We're just about done packing up the room, and now I can finally get out of my cave for a couple of weeks. So yes, I am pretty excited. The estimated re-admission date is the 27. I will keep you updated,

    OK, so I know this is random, but since you were a big "Bachelorette" follower I thought you might find this interesting. My friend put together her own blog: http://themormonbachelorette.blogspot.com/
    It's actually very well put together . . . you might want to check it out if you get bored.

    We love you and wish you the best. We're happy to hear you get to go home. You're always in our prayers. (I wish you could hear Mitch's cute voice every time he says "Pees Bwess Racho")
    Love, the Rasmussens

  13. Hi :) my name is Taylor Steele, and we are not related, but sure have a lot in common! I'm 16 years old, and I'm also battling cancer. I've been fighting ovarian cancer for 4 years and I found your blog while looking for my website. Glad to hear your counts are up and you got to go home :) I see you're a volleyball player, I play soccer. My team mates made wristbands to honor my battle that say strong as Steele :) I was hoping we could keep in touch, it's kinda nice to be able to talk to other teen girls that are going through similar battles. If your interested in keeping in touch, please email me at steele@softcom.net. :) thanks, hope your feeling good :)
