Ella Update and Disneyland


Sorry that is has been awhile since my last update. Ella has been doing just fine recovering from this round so there hasn't been much to write about. She had to get a red blood transfusion yesterday and her ANC has dropped to 154 so I am hoping that things will be turning around in the next few days so we can get the heck out of here. This round is exactly the same drugs as last round and she was only in the hospital for 17 days. Well, today is day 14 so I am really hoping that we only have 3 or 4 days left. However, I am trying not to let myself get too set on that yet. Here are some random pictures were taken the last few days.




Mommy and Ella being silly






Hmmm....what to do with this sock?????


Since I won't eat any food, might as well eat the sock!!



Ella is sitting on my bed with her new blanket
that our friend, Megan, brought by for her.
Megan is selling these "Quillows" in order to
raise money for an international adoption.
Please click on her name and check out her blog



Last thursday and friday, I took Emma to Disneyland for her birthday. We had a really nice time just the two of us. Below are some pics from their new AMAZING water show. I am hoping to entice some of my far away friends to come see it so that we can meet up :) Pictures don't begin to do it justice!!!

Aww I love that girl and I am so happy to hear that she is doing well :) I can't wait to see her!

So good to hear that she has done so well yet again. I love those pictures of the two of you they are so lovely and I love all the ones of Ella, I can never have a favourite because she is so very vey cute, she never ever doesn't look cute in any of her pictures, so full of character you can just see it. She is amazing that little girl of yours, going through so much and with a smile on her face all the time. These amazing kids of ours could more than teach us a few life lessons I tell you. Will be keeping her in my prayers and sending positive energy your way.

Oh man, now I'm even more homesick! We wanted to see that show, but it was opening weekend, and we knew we'd never get seats. We'll be sure not to miss is in November though! Ella is looking as beautiful as always! Hey, maybe we'll get home the same day. Cool for both of us!
