Abby's still truckin'

Just a quick note to say, "It's HOT in Colorado!" Yes, just 2 weeks ago it was snowing and yes it is suppose to be spring here but once again leave it to Colorado to be different... The last 2 days it has been in the low to mid 90's... So... we broke out the pool! Abby loved it, she also loved not having to be attached to the IV fluids bag anymore too.
Quick update: Abby is on Vancomyacin, the strong antibiotic for her blood infection. She still is limping a bit so we'll have to get that checked next week. She is also on a medicine to help negate the neurological affects of High Dose Methotrexate (HDM). She only has one more HDM to go, a week from Tuesday. She what else... Eye Doctor appointment on Monday, and a CBC at CHOA. Other than that I think we are just going to catch up on our sleep, as much as the administration of Vancomyacin allows for, every 8 hours and a 2 hour infusion rate.
Abby's back to herself again mostly, and all the dwarfs have gone away for now, thanks for your prayers and comments. We love you all!

mark,
i must say that i have been following abby's story for quite some time now and i am just amazed at how God is working in this situation...i dont know if you remember me but i was in your class at yli last summer...long story VERY short, that class was such a Godsend and spoke straight into my heart. i just want you to know that you are an appreciated person who will always be a part of my testimony. You and your family are in my prayers and i have full confidence that God is going to pull you all through anything and everything.

To your wife,
May God grant you an underlying peace from the Holy Spirit that is with you always...

To you mark,
May God give you the strength and perseverance to have faith in times of frustration and doubt...

To your family,
May God's love and faithfulness carry you in this time...

And to dear ABBY,
When you are old enough to read and understand this, know that this was my prayer for you:

May God's peace, love, and joy abound in your life as you continue to grow and bloom into the child He loved long before you were born...
