Things are going well for Ally. We continue to have fun filled days with friends. Last week Ally finished up Dance Camp. She loved it so much we are going to sign her up for weekly lessons in the fall. She is also going to do a month of soccer camp, in the fall. It feels so nice to be able to do these "normal" things.

This past weekend Ally attended TWO family reunions. On Saturday we met up with the VERY generous (Mommy’s Daddy’s) clan (Thanks to everyone who participated in the auction and 50/50 raffle, we feel blessed to know we have so much support). Ally had tons of fun playing horsey with Grampa and Uncle Jason. She also played with some of her cousins, but was not so sure about them when they held Grampa and Uncle's hand. (A little bit jealous!) On Sunday Ally visited with the super the fun (Mommy’s Grammy’s) family. Ally had a blast with her cousins and Auntie Kelly and Uncle Mike. I actually got that day off (and Daddy had to work), and have enjoyed listening to the stories about the day.
Tomorrow Ally gets her second dose of Rituximab and on Wednesday she gets low dose Chemo. Please keep her in your thoughts to keep the side effects to a minimum and for quick blood count recovery. In the next couple of weeks we will draw HAMA again. We are really looking for this to be negative, so we can get back to NYC. Ally is only allowed on the protocol until February, so we want to get as many antibody treatments in as possible.

I'll update later in the week to let you know how her 2 hospital days went.
