Little victories are oh so BIG!!!!

The last few days have been a blur. Actually, let me change that. The last 5 months have been a blur! But, just when you think you can't handle anymore, God gives a breather. This nice breather has come in a few different ways. First, Ansley's vomiting and overall yucky-ness is better today than it has been in 4 days!! She is having a big treat tonight and sleeping in her brothers' room! She hasn't felt like doing much of anything since Saturday. But, today she feels a lot more energetic. Zofran is an amazing drug! Our family was also blessed by the Dickert family. These sweet people brought gifts galore to lavish on our family for an entire month!! It has been so fun to watch Ansley get excited about asking, "I wonder what today's gift is, Momma?" She has already gotten fun stuff that we took to clinic today. Thanks isn't enough to all you sweet Dickert's!!
And, finally, clinic was great today. Ansley's labs were remarkable!!!! In fact, her counts were so good, for the first time since diagnosis, we get a week off of clinic! That means no clinic next week !! We will go the following Wed. for chemo but we have next week off! The little victories are so very big!!
Blessings to all the precious people praying. I am a tired but thankful momma tonight! Continue to plead for healing for our baby girl. We are 5 months down, 7 to go. Psalm 31:24 "Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord."
