We had a great trip to Vegas. It was a lot of fun to see our family and watch Taylor play soccer. Her team played great, then ended up losing in the semi-finals to a team from Vegas, but it was worth the trip! We got to visit with our family and it was relaxing to be away from everything for a few days. David gets a HUGE thanks for being so willing to stay with Brin while we went off on a fun trip! On the drive home, both Taylor and Jade came down with some kind of stomach bug, and Jade threw up in St. George. We then stopped at every town for a bathroom for sick girls until we got home. It was a long drive, and I am nervous about Brinley catching it. Luckily it wasn't a terrible one, but they are both running very low fevers today.

In the meantime, Brinley had a rough weekend. (Which of course means David did too!) She started the steroids again and was up a lot at night and was not feeling well for most of the weekend. Today she looks pretty sick, her eyes are all red. She is demanding most of the attention, so I have just been giving it to her, I know she feels sick. I guess when you are battling cancer, you are entitled to a few perks, right? Her peach fuzz that had grown back in is falling back out now, I am wondering if she will lose her eyebrows and eyelashes during this phase too. She was happy to have her sisters back, I think she really missed them! We are almost three weeks into this phase already. That means we have 5 weeks to go, then we move on to long term maintenance! The countdown continues.....

I'm sure it was nice to be back in Vegas! I sure miss everyone there. Hope your girls feel better and I'm sending happy wishes to Brinley.

Wish we had had warmer weather for your visit and that you didn't take the stomach flu home with you. David is awesome!

It was a fun weekend! But it went by way too fast. David - you deserve medals of honor for making it though the weekend by yourself. I know that was hard! On the bright side, you are almost half way through this horrible stage. Just one day at a time. Each day is probalby like climbing a mountain. But just hold on, it won't last forever! (I'm stocking up on the "I can do hard things" magnets, just in case you change your mind.)
