We have had quite the week. Brinley was feeling better by Friday, so they started her back up on her oral chemo and we started her steroids yesterday. And they are definitely taking affect this morning. We managed to get the prevacid this month, (thank you, you know who you are!) and I am hoping that gives her some relief from feeling sick this month. Her counts were really good, so they are talking about increasing her dose of oral chemo, which would be a good thing. They want to check her again in 2 weeks to see if her counts are still good. I am really hoping they are.


Mylee managed to catch the virus, but it is such a mild version of it I would barely even say she was sick. I guess she's got a pretty tough immune system.

Jade, on the other hand, is still sick. Her fever went away for Friday and most of Saturday, so David and I decided to go on a date (we both needed it!). When we got home, Jade woke up with a fever again. So I will probably take her in tomorrow to see why she's not kicking this thing. Please pray for Jade, it has been one full week for her. She goes from feeling pretty good to feeling sick again and we are getting a bit worried. Of course, as I type this she is playing and tackling Daddy on the floor, so who knows. David and I are not sick, thank goodness, so we will just try to survive steroid week with an added sickie. I'll try to pop my head up for air sometime this week, I think it'll be a rough one.

This woman I know has told me that there is also this sickness going around that makes you get fevers. They aren't sure what causes it, but the fever breaks then comes back with a high temperature.
I am not sure if this is what Jade is experiencing, but both Jade and Brinley are in my prayers.
