Things You Can Do While You Are OUT Of The Hospital

****A sequel to Things You Can Do While Stuck IN The Hospital.....


You can catch one of Cousin Ethan's footbal practices


You can kiss a cucumber (doesn't everyone do this?)


You can help mom shred important documents (don't worry, it isn't turned on or plugged in)


Help my mom by putting my diapers away


You can practice drumming (the music therapy guy will be impressed by my improvement)


You can kick back while at the mall school shopping for big sisters


You can have lunch with Grandma...Splenda anyone?


Who knows where I am here?


You can practice your golf swing.


You can enjoy the great outdoors...I love it!!!


You can help with the vacuuming (dang my mom makes me do a lot of chores!)


You can play a round of checkers.....who's next??


You still have to keep up with your blog friends.


Visiting Downtown Disney is a must!! (especially when you are meeting special friends)

And finally, you can sneak a peek of your sister while she is trying on clothes :)



But, I am sorry to say that the fun is over for now. Tomorrow (Wednesday) we head back in to the hospital to start round 3 of chemo. We are dreading going back but the longer we stay home, the longer this whole thing will drag on. Best to just get it over with. Once again, anyone local, don't forget to visit us!! And those that are far away, don't forget to pray for another uncomplicated round of chemo.

I just LOVED this post!!!Look at your warrior girl ... leukemia is no match for her.

What I liked also were the number of pictures that involved eating ... when she doesn't eat!

As for tomorrow,I know you hate going back,I remember that feeling well.But the end will be here before you know and we both can bask on this side of treatment, together, with our girls.And,on a final note,I will most definitely be there to visit!

Love to you all and prayers as round three begins!

Wish I lived closer so I could visit you guys in the hospital...I will be praying for you!! i love all the photos- she has SO much personality, I love it:)

Kristin said...

Praying for you. Wish I lived close enough to visit!

Tam said...

Praying for you and little Ella, all the way from Brisbane, Australia.

Tina said...

The thought of going back in is horrible, but then it also means the end to this dreadful thing is closer and I pray pray that it all goes well and that Ella will be a healed little girl very soon. Hope the hospital stay is uneventful, Ella feels as little discomfort as she possibly can and that you guys are home before you know it. Will be thinking of you constantly and not to forget saying many many prayers.

Now for all those wonderful pictures, wow you guys do get around alot and what's so beautiful is seeing Ella enjoying herself so much. I love each and every one of them, I see Ella is helping mom around the house alot, while mom relaxes?? Is that your foot by the way? Ella looks so well and always so full of energy and personality it's hard to imagine all that's going on in her body. She is going to beat this thing without any trouble whatsoever. Hugs and sending much love from this end.

Prayers from TX as always. Keep up that awesome spirit!

EL said...

We will be praying.. What a little trooper Ella is. She really knows how to live it up! And yes, we did go to the play group. Such a great group of families. I'm looking forward to when Ella can join.

Josh Hopkins said...

Ella, I think my favorite thing that you can do while out of the hospital, is definitely practice drumming. You look like you have some really great rhythm!

Too bad for your mommy and daddy, that those aren't real drums though.

Lori said...

Oh, Sweet Ella - you are definitely in our thoughts and prayers! Hope this round passes quickly and smoothly.

Sweet Pea's Mommy said...

Hmmm...In & Out...I'm glad I had it last night or I would be really craving it!

Ella, congrats on hitting the magic number and being ready for round 3! Here is praying for another uncomplicated round. You are an amazing little girl and I can only hope Sweet Pea brings as much joy to the world as you do!

Lacey said...

You know Ray is loving the In and Out picture. I'm just glad he doesn't make me eat there every night. Although he does know all the guys that are here from California to opens the stores. What a nerd!!
Lets get going with the treatments so we can be done forever!! If we weren't going to get Makayla in a month, we'd come down for the weekend and visit!

Jenny said...

That was so cute! Praying Ella does well with this round and things go smoothly :)

Rochelle said...

Praying this round goes smoothly and you are home again soon!
