The Good, The Bad and The Chicken Pot Pie


The Good....Emilie's counts recovered quickly after her last chemo treatment.  We are also thrilled to have had 14 days at home with NO fever!
The Bad....Really, not so bad.  Since her counts are up again, her doctors want to start her next chemo treatment right away.  We have gotten fond of "home".  We are off to Stanford tomorrow morning for a 1:00p.m. bone marrow aspirate and lumbar puncture, followed by R & R at the lovely Bass Center!
The Chicken Pot Pie...Emilie has been havin' a hankerin' for Nana's chicken pot pie.  Nana came through with the fixin's and left the pie crust for Emilie to assemble on the pies.  She did a great job rolling and making a "floury" good mess.
Check back for updates and please keep praying for great results from her procedures, pray that her legs will be restored to "normal" and pray that her next chemo treatment will go smoothly.
