Off to CHOP

The girls are up and on their way to CHOP. Sounds like they had a restful nights sleep at the Fours Season. Christi has double vision and must cover one eye in order to see straight. Angela snapped this photo from her cell phone.

Our friend Tim from The Philadelphia Mint is going to pick them up from the hotel. This saves Christi from taking another aweful taxi ride. She gets so car sick.

The scan is at 9:30 so I imagine that is going to be very ugly. They start at the head when they scan so this will get nasty quickly.

Last night when I told Shayla that Christi's disease had spread and that she may die, Shayla asked if it had spread to her heart. (I too am anxious to know if it has spread to any of her organs.) As I hugged Shayla she said "Dad, don't forget EASTER" I replied "Shayla I don't understand what you mean" She said "Easter is about HOPE and Easter is coming"

I am another silent follower from Minnesota and my heart is completly broke this morning as I read the last three entries to the blog. My head is spinning as I am sure yours are wondering WHY? and HOW? - I am just beyond words sorry to hear what you are going through right now and wanted to let you know that as always I am praying hard and pleading for things to make a turn for the better. Praying hard in MN. Manda

Praying for a turn for the best... Manda

All my thoughts are with you. I don't know what else to say. I hope so much that there is something that someone can do to at least buy you all some quality time. This is so, so unfair. Prayers, prayers prayers.
Love Lisa
