Today was another good day.  She woke up very happy and ready to eat and play.  Grandma W showed up early to play with Charlotte and do some walking.  Charlotte even kicked Mommy out of the play room when she was in there this morning with Grandma!  Grandma and Grandpa E showed up just a little bit later so Charlotte was in her glory with all of these fun relatives here to entertain her!  She wanted to walk the halls, and play, then get pushed around the halls in the stroller until she was ready for a nap!

She slept for almost three hours while Mommy and I went out to Kohls to do a little shopping for about an hour!  We returned and Grandma W was still taking good care of her (playing her Nintendo DS while Charlotte slept!).

Charlotte didn’t have any blood tests taken today so we aren’t sure what her numbers are…but if they are low at all, one would not know it!  She was full of energy and had a cute little attitude like any other two year old would have.  I think we will have some labs tomorrow to figure out if she is still on the right track in her treatment.

She was happy today.  She was energetic today.  We have said it before, and today we can say it again-she doesn’t appear to be sick at all.  We see a lot of sick and tired children here.  And we sometimes feel guilty that Charlotte is running through the halls hooting and hollering-having a great time while many other kids and their families are suffering.  Amy and I try to believe the doctors when they say that her attitude and activity level are great signs that she is doing well.  We all know that Charlotte still has a very long road ahead of her and Mommy and I don’t want to get too excited about her progress in case there are more rough times ahead and we end up like one of these other families.  But Charlotte is doing all she can to keep our minds off of her rotten disease.  She reminds us that while we may be the parents of a two year old with cancer, we are still the parents of a two year old.  And we like being those parents.
