I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

quick trip to the clinic

Kristen's appointment at the bone marrow clinic went well. She is doing what she does best, being a rockstar.  She will continue on the IV fluids for at least another week. Next Wednesday Kristen will have a spinal tap. We are not looking forward to that, but it is what it is.
We got home around noon and this is where Kristen went.....

...right up to her room. I guess the trip to the hospital wore her out. She loves to be  in her room. She doesn't sleep, just sits on her bed, organizes her things and watches the Disney chanel. In the next week or two I am going to start taking her for a morning walk at the park. We love Spring and the fresh air and short walks should do her some good. The docs said not to expect much from Kristen for several weeks, even months. It is perfectly normal that she wants to rest up in her room.

Love that first picture! I think it's great she likes to be in her room. Doing her own thing. She sure is looking darn good for all she has endured.
