Yesterday we drove down and took the scenic route through rural Missouri and Arkansas. I had no idea Arkansas was so hilly! We made it into town about 6 pm and took Avery over to the Med Room for labs and check up with the dr's. This morning we got up early and were in diagnostics by 7:30 am for her MRI. St Jude tends to be protective over their info and wanted to do their own scans as well. Tomorrow we have appts with the Dr's again and Therapy. Wednesday we will meet with the radiation oncologist and do the simulation testing for the planning phase. As far as the rest of the week - well we really don't know as of yet.
Avery seems to be in good spirits and all her drs and the nurses have been very excited to see her. They all say the same thing most of you say, "look how tall she is!" To which we respond...nope -- same height as last spring. I swear the kid needs to grow just so we can say "I KNOW!" instead. For now we are staying at the Grizzly House but we assume they will be moving us to Ronald Mc Donald or Target House by the end of the week.
Jeremy and I are doing fine. The next few weeks will be tough as we won't be together but we'll get through it -- not the first time, but hopefully its the last.
