This Week

Tomorrow is the three week mark for this round. Counts are still at zero, but we are hoping to see them come up sometime soon. Cross your fingers. I have been confined to my room for quite some time now, but we were able to talk one of the doctors into letting me walk out to the patio on the 3rd floor at 10:30 last night. So I put on my mask and Emily and I ventured out of the room for the first time in a couple weeks. We hit up the vending machines on the way out, and I got my now and laters (a necessity) and then we went down to the patio. It was the first time I had been outside in 3 weeks, so I felt pretty special haha. We also watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid last night, which I highly recommend. Thanks to everyone who has come to visit and has been following the blog, it's been great. I really appreciate all that is being done for me! Signing out--



  1. Rachel, we all know those counts are going to go up, right to where they want them!
    You are an amazing lady! I am so proud of you and how well you do this! Thanks for being the best example for all of us!
    Love ya,Shelley

  2. I'm glad you got to escape for a deserve it! It was especially sneaky since it was at 10:30 at night. Cami keeps telling all her friends and cousins about visiting you and that you had a huge poster picture that goes to camp. Ha ha it cracks me up, I think she's still a little confused about that one ;)

    I'm sure being outside is just what your body needed to get those ANC's up where they belong. (hugs)


  3. Good job. You look much better in the picture with Cami than when I visited on Monday. You should have left your hat off so people could see your new hair. Hope you are feeling better. Love you lots.

  4. oh my gosh, I LOVE "Diary of a Wimpy Kid"! We saw it on a whim and thought it was HILARIOUS!!! Excellent recommendation, Rachel. :)

  5. Rach:

    Been missing in action for a while but still been following your post. Wonderful people make wonderful things. How blessed you are! I know that your counts will rise and with it all the hopes and dreams of a lifetime. Keep keeping on. Know that I luv ya and pray for ya.


  6. I'm so glad you are doing better. As far as going outside, I just sat outside watching soccer, and can I tell you, freezing your toes off in the cold is not all that great! Missed you there! Take care of yourself and we will see you soon!
