Continuing our theme of “good news”…Yesterday was the first day Meri wasn’t hobbling around like an 80 year old lady. Her rash has increased, but her pain level seems to be continuing to decrease little by little (as long as she keeps the meds on schedule) and her appetite has come back with a vengeance. She is clearly making up for lost calories! She had a follow up with her regular doctor yesterday who thought she was progressing well. She begged us to let her go to school today, but Lars and I aren’t really ready for that. Our concern is that she doesn’t know how to rein herself in and she would overdo it in her excitement to be back in the social world of Roswell North Elementary. They have spring break next week, so we’ll let her go back then.
I can’t tell you how many people have reached out to us – by phone or e-mail, sending cards, gifts, well wishes, prayers, good energy – it has been overwhelming and we have truly felt touched. Thank you all!
