Sitting together in the chair having blood drawn for counts! Green blankie is front and center!
My apologies. I posted to Facebook that Ella's counts went back up, and never posted to the Blog. Bad mommy!

Ella's counts shot from 188 to 600 to...............wait for it.................2600! so she is doing well and back at school. Going back to school was a bit of a transition, but she was Star Student in her class this week and was happy as a clam.  Her teacher even sent me a text to let me know she was all smiles this week.  Pretty awesome! It is like the last month never happened for her. How I wish I could let it go as easily as she seems to. That is one of the reasons I think kids handle this a bit better than adults. We know how things are "suppose to be" and we are disappointed when things are not as we expect them. I think kids have this wonderful "oh well" ability sometimes.  Ella bragged to her class that she got "spoiled" when she was in the hospital, but I have not heard her mentioned once that it sucked that she was in the hospital for Christmas. I know that is the first thing that came out of my mouth when anyone asked me.  So maybe this week I will try to be more like my daughter and adapt an "oh well" attitude!

Bear Necessities 

I got an email from our Child Life Specialist yesterday with this photo attached. Notice that 2 of those cute smiles belong to my girl?  This Year Bear Necessities is using 2 of Ella's images to help raise money and awareness for Pediatric Cancer.  The bottom left picture was taken almost exactly a year ago. Crazy how much can happen in a year. Now, she has this head full of red curls! I am so grateful.
