Today was a great clinic day. We got there at 9:45 and were gone by 11:30! Labs looked great. Her ANC (which is a very important number when you have cancer) was up from 480 2 weeks ago to 2,080 today! This makes surgery a go for Friday. Ansley was energetic all day long. We attempted to eat out tonight with some friends from MUSC. About 20 minutes after arriving, Ansley came up and said, "Mommy, I itch all over and my mouth really hurts. Can we please go home?" Both of those complaints are normal responses to chemo. And so, we got our food to go and headed home. So, so small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things. We are thankful that the only rough spots today were itchiness and a sore mouth.

Friday morning will be an early one and our plan is to have a very low key weekend as Ansley recovers from her surgery. Thanks for continuing to ask Our Savior for perfect healing of our little girl. Rejoice with us today! Tomorrow will worry about itself...
