"Back on 3 South (oncology)"

As you can see, tonight we were moved down to oncology (3rd floor) and we are happy to be with familiar faces! Ahhhh! AND.......just this week computers with Internet access were installed into each room here so we're both THRILLED about that. (As I type, Christi is awake and happily playing PBS Cyberchase so I had to step out to update you via her blog.)

I hope we're on the road to recovery from the chemo. Tonight she's eating and sitting up playing on the computer. We Praise him!! We're praying for her counts to show an upward trend so that we can be discharged - most likely this weekend sometime. Then we'll go to join Grandma Nonee back at the Ronald House.

CHRISTI FUNNY: All day my sweet mother kept trying to get Christi to eat by offering her food. After she walked out of our room one time Christi looked at me and said, "She can be so annoying about that stuff." Seriously, having her here has been a total blessing! I can't even begin to describe the helpfulness and the comfort she's provided - even if she is annoying about eating (hee hee!).

CHRISTI'S JOKE: Maybe she'll be out of here by Saturday. She just gave me another joke. "Why do they say money doesn't grow on trees when banks have so many branches?"

Praise God to hear that Christi is sitting up and eating some...and even playing a little. Drastic difference since I saw her on Monday! Let's hope and pray this is an upward trend! Angela, I'm so glad your mom is there with you. Moms are very comforting, especially during trials. God bless you!
Love you,

Just checking in one last time before I go to bed. I am glad to hear that things are going okay. Tell Christi she is HILARIOUS, she is making me giggle tonight. Give her a hug, a big one, that girl deserves it. Take care.
Good Night:)

Christi sounds like your doing good. Grandma's are like this they want to see you feeling better . I have a web site you might like for children that are gifted . My Daughter is in the 4th grade and is highly gifted so she thought maybe you would like this website . Take care we will continue to pray your counts come up and you can go home .

Dear Christi,
I'm glad you're feeling better. I hope the chemo got rid of the nasty cancer!!
I, too, love Jerry Spinelli books. I taught some of them to my sixth graders last year. My Check out to see if he's written other books that you will like. Some of them are good for older readers, so look at the synopsis before you choose one. His wife writes books, too. She writes children's picture books that the children in my kids' school check out a lot. Her name is Eileen Spinelli. They live here in eastern Pennsylvania, have six children and sixteen grandchildren!!
We are all praying for you to get well and discharged from the hospital very soon.

Good Morning sweet gals,
