Thanks for all of your positive thoughts today. We will not have news about Ally's Brain MRI or the echocardiogram until next week.

We are off to NYC for 2 weeks. We leave on Sunday. The first week is more scans. The second week will be 3f8 (antibody therapy) treatment.

We got Ally's blood counts back for today. Her red and white cells are great! This means no transfusion and NO MORE SHOTS!!! (The poor girl has been getting a shot in the leg for 16 days.)

Bonus snow day! I got to stay home with Ally today (and get some shopping in this morning...although it was for school purposes).

Here is the rest of the week...dreading Friday:
Wednesday: Daddy home with Ally (because he is working this weekend)
Thursday: Auntie Lynn comes for the day
Friday (February 19th...our least favorite day in the world) MRI scan, Echo-cardiogram and meeting with the nutritionist.
2/19/08 - We learn Ally's cancer is high-risk
2/19/09 - We learn the cancer is back.
Saturday - packing
Sunday - Off to NYC with Auntie Kelly.

Lately Ally has been randomly bringing up things that happened months ago; for example, she started talking about how much she misses Scott the Builder who made her Make-a-Wish Playhouse!

Here’s a photo of Ally walking home from the store!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today we took Ally to the dinosaur exhibit.
She was terrified!!!
She actually had a pretty good time, although the life size moving dinos did scare her a bit. She really liked all the little games they had after looking at the dinosaurs.

“Big teeth!”: Ally at the Dinosaur Museum
