Out Of Communication...uugghh!!!

This is a very quick update. I had a whirlwind day and a half at home with very little time to update my blog and my husband informed me last night that our computer at the hospital stopped working so they took it back and we are now on the waiting list for another one. Who knows how long that will be. So I know I won't be doing any updates on my blog or facebook for a couple of days.

Ella's bone marrow is definitely in recovery mode. She is making platelets and hemoglobin. Her ANC started to go up and then dropped a bit but that is expected and I am hopeful for some big jumps in the next few days. I am heading in to the hospital as soon as I drop Abbey and Emma at the Ronald McDonald house to catch the bus to camp. Because they have a sibling with cancer, they are eligible to go to this wonderful camp, free of charge. These are the wonderful things that come out of your donations of change when you go to McDonalds. I will never not donate my change again!!!

I am hoping and praying that my next update will say that Ella is home!! For now, here are a few pictures of some gifts we have received that I finally got pics of.


Mickey hat handmade by Aubrey's mom


Adorable flower hat given to Ella by Lindsey and her mom






Rockstar blanket given to Ella from Preslie and her mom




****Anyone know how I can get that stupid "Cutest Blog on the Block " logo out of the middle of my post title? And how do I get my header picture to fit correctly?****

That Mickey beanie is to die for!!!!
Sorry - probably can't help you with your background... but I'm guessing the logo is a glitch in their new backgrounds and they'll fix it soon... did you click in the 'shrink to fit' box for your header pic? just a thought...

Love all the presents so cute! What a cool thing that Abbey and Emma get to go to camp. I never knew that existed.
Aidan's school collects pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald house. He goes out of his way to ask people for their tabs so he can take them to donate to all the kids. He will be super excited to hear about a camp that they sponsor.
Sorry about the computer going down at the hospital, hoping to hear you are home soon!

Sorry about the computer fritz but I am thrilled with the news about Ella!! I, too, hope that your next post says that you are FINALLY all home!!

I love, love, love the hats!! I'm thinking Aubrey's mommy should sell these!! I'll place an order NOW:) I love the hat with the flower on it, but something tells me that Landon would resist on that one!! And the "rock star" blanket is the best. Landon has the exact same one:) Our kiddos really are such "ROCK STARS".....very fitting!!!

We donate to the Ronald McDonald House every year. The things they do for families ARE nothing short of AMAZING & GENEROUS!!! That little bit of change goes to such a great cause!!

BTW, sorry I cannot help you with the background glitch......you have NO idea how long it took me to change mine, and it's still not what I had originally wanted!! But I absolutely LOVE your new background and the new pic of Ella......BEAUTIFUL!!

I am so glad to hear that Ella's counts are going up. I am praying that you get to go home soon!!

Love the hats and the blanket!! Very cute!

Also - love the Ronald McDonald House...our sorority in college supported the RMH as our philanthropy. I was always touched when we went there to do some work. I am glad that you are being well cared for there.

Sorry -- no help on the logo -- but I actually think the picture is kind of cute the way it is =)
