Clinic Visit

Kate's clinic visit was same as usual except that I wasn't there today (at home with Jackson who has a fever). I'm pretty sure they'd frown on me bringing in a child with a fever! Her counts looked good with an ANC of 1500. Accoding to Jason, she received the IVIG, antibiotics and Vincristine without any problems so all in all, it was a great day!
She doesn't have to go back for treatment for another month either. Kate was asked to participate in the Neal Boortz radio telethon next Thursday so we'll back for that though, remember this? She had a lot of fun on the radio before and I suspect she'll ham it up again. You can listen online so when I more details I send them your way.

First Grade

If you can't tell, Kate was very excited to begin first grade yesterday.

She has a few friends in her class from last year but is just as excited to make new ones this year.

Her teacher is Ms. Herndon and according to Kate, "she is so sweet". I have also heard that she keeps the kids focused and engaged which pairs nicely with being "so sweet". We are all looking forward to a great year.
