PTL!!!! I'm free to go home!!!!!

Hooray!!!   I go home today!!!!  My own sister and brothers,  ALL my toys, sleeping in my own bed(well....maybe mommy and daddy's bed)  AAHHHHH!!  

In the middle of all the excitement and joy....I am still in isolation, BUT isolation at my house is FAR better than the hospital!!  Pray my counts keep going up and that my family stays well!!  We are on neutropenic precautions for at least 6 weeks.  I wanted to say thank you to the kind people who came to clean my house for us today...Mommy is delighted to just be able to come home and not have to clean like a mad woman!! 

More later....I have got some playing to catch up on!

I can hardly believe it!!!  Please pray my counts continue to go up...if they do...I get to GO HOME tomorrow!!!!  Can you believe it?!?!?  Praise the Lord!!  This treatment has been sooo long and exhausting for me...actually...mommy daddy, Aleks, Chloe, Kyle, Noni and Paw pa... Nana and Grandpa Pat too.  Everyone has been praying for me and worrying for me as well...  that, in itself, is exhausting.  Maybe that's why God says not to worry. 

Anyway...with that in are several prayer requests:
Pray my entire family stays well.  God protects all of us from colds and viruses!
Pray for us as we go home to try and figure out what our new "normal" life is like.  Pray that I continue to want to eat and that the food tastes GOOD!!!  Pray my counts continue to increase.  Pray for this spot on my lung....we have to wait 6 weeks for my next scan to look at it again.  Pray for Mommy and Daddy and all the decisions they have to make for my continued treatment.  Pray God's PEACE and COMFORT surrounds their hearts and God's love completely saturates them.  Pray the waterfall of grace just flows and flows for my family!!  We are in need of God's help and hope! 

OK...I think that is about it.  I need to get rest for my big day tomorrow....Lord willing...I am homeward bound:)))))))
