Ally had a blood draw today, to check her counts from last week's chemo. She did great! Her white blood cells were around 2.5 (normal person = 5 or 6), her ANC was about 850 (last week it was ~1100, so not a huge drop), and her red cells looked good, her platelets even went up!

We will draw for HAMA next Thursday! It would be a great birthday present for me if she was negative!

We are having a super fun week. Today we made some whoopie pies and delivered a few to Uncle Larry and were surprised to see Uncle Andy and Aunt Deb there! (I wonder if Uncle Larry shared the whoopie pies?) Then, we delivered some to our neighbors, and Daddy is bringing some to work tomorrow.

Since Ally's counts are good enough we are even going to go out and about tomorrow and Friday, then we spend the weekend with Daddy and next week I go back to work (but less than 2 months until Summer Vacation!!!)
