Fourth Round of Chemo

I go in Monday for blood tests and my fourth round of Chemo. I am really tired of this and would just like to get it over with. I hope to get out by Saturday to go to my State Bible Drill Competition in Houston.

Email me! Dad got me my own laptop and I love to get emails. It gets disappointing when there are none to read especially when I am in the hospital. There ain't much to do around here, especially on the weekends when the teen room is closed. Click on the link to the right for my email address.

Katie is in Hospital Again

Katie went for blood tests today. She had just returned from seeing the Amazon exhibits at the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi. She was feeling sick and weak. She was running a fever. Her white blood cell and platelet counts were very low. She was admitted to the hospital for a platelet transfusion and for an infection. Any infection at this stage could be life threatening. Pray for her.

Finished Third Chemo Round

I am feeling a little weak, tired and sick today as I came home from my chemo. Thanks to all your prayers the side effects from this chemo round were very light. None of the vomiting, constipation, or big mouth ulcers and sore throat. Thursday I felt much better and was back to my old self.

Third Chemo Round

My blood counts have been very low and I haven't been back to school or allowed around a lot of people. The flu has been going around. I go back in the hospital today for four more days for my third round of chemo.

Hilary Duff Concert

My friend Sammie Greenwood and her Mom got me a ticket to the Hilary Duff Concert in Corpus Christi in January while I was still in the hospital. Dr. Alter even postponed my next chemo treatment so I could go to it. Kids With A Cause helped us to get backstage and meet Hilary Duff personally, and have my picture took with her. It was a real thrill. I got an autographed picture, sweatshirt and pullover. After this I start my third chemo treatment.
