Inpatient again.....

Well,Tessa began to run a fever while at the appt to get her new eye made so we had to rush back to the hospital and of course are admitted. Her counts have hit bottom and now she will recieve blood and hopefully we will get to go home in a few days. They are having a big Halloween party and she will get to "trick or treat" here so I will take alot of pictures and post them.
The girls at home are looking forward to their party which is tomarrow and tonite Marie will take them out to trick or treat!

No Mo Chemo!!!!!!

Well her last chemo is done with and she did great!! Tessa and I are back her at St Judes today for appointments and she is having her "new" eye done tomarrow. We are going to have to stay until Friday due to her lab values being low and they will transfuse her then also...
We now know that we will be starting radiation on Nov that means we will be here through two holiday's but then it will be over...Yea!!!

Back at St Judes

Tessa and I arrived at 8am YEAH!!! I made it...boy 4am comes early....
She is now is a procedure to check her hearing and get an echo on her heart.She should be done soon. Her last Chemo is set for Thursday . Praise the Lord I can see the light at the end of the tunnel....well kind of....Ha Ha.
I am trying to get a jump start on our housing for radiation treatment. We will be here for 5 wks
Monday thru Friday and the kids just didnt do well with me gone so I am trying to see if we can do something different, were we can alternate kids or stay some where that all of us (or most of us) can stay....
I will be going home after her eye exam tomarrow and then Mike will turn around and come back on Thursday and stay until Sunday when her treatment is done.
I am anxious to get her eye exam behind us because it seems like her eye has had more "funny" movements lately and that is what I saw with the eye they removed...
will update more later

Sorry for not updating sooner....

Tessa is home from the hospital! Praise the Lord! She is still having a fever at nite, they are not sure why. The Dr's are giving her a much needed break and she doesn't have to go back for 10 days. It is a welcome break but in some ways it makes it harder to go back!
She is out with her siblings playing and just being a kid. Thanks again to everyone who has sent packages,meals,prayers and support.
