Ready to Go!

We went to clinic this morning to check Abbey's numbers once more before heading off to Disney World. They are better. Still low, but slowly rising. Her ANC was 600 and again all cell lines were up a little from Friday. Her oral chemo is still on hold until her ANC reaches 750 so on the way home today, Jim and I were talking about how this really ends up being a blessing in disguise. Since her number are rising, we know that any day they should be back up to where they want them to be. When she is on her oral chemo, she needs to fast for 3 hours each day between lunch and dinner so her medicine is taken on an empty stomach. It will be nice to not have to deal with her medication while on vacation and even more nice to be able to let her have ice cream (or any other snackies) at anytime during the day :)! No fasting this week! We feel confident that her body is getting stronger each day and that she will have no problems on vacation and the break from the chemo will make things easier for all of us. It sure was a reminder to us this morning of how much God loves us and cares about every detail :).

We are packed and ready to go! Our limo arrives at 8a.m. to pick us up and we will be outta here!!

We are taking our computer with us and of course our camera and video camera too so will be sure to do some late night posts with lots of pictures :).
