Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Hope you are all enjoying your day of green cheer and beer! Max got to make some special St. Patrick's Day cookies from the Child Life group down here at Children's. He enjoyed decorating them, as you can see in the video and, of course, eating them!
Max is doing well this week. His tummy issues have improved and he is feeling good overall. He is back to eating and drinking some and running around the room here! His blood levels are definitely dipping big time so the chemo is doing its job so far.
We bring Ellee in on Thursday for some preparative blood work so, things are starting to gear up for the big day! Ellee and Alex are adjusting to Max and one of us being gone all the time although, they don't like it...just like us! It's the toughest thing to be apart like this. We'll never take it for granted again!
Enjoy your St. Patty's day and we'll write more soon!
Kristi (and Matt, Max, Alex and Ellee)
