So I want to apologize to everyone for the post count reduction over the last couple of weeks.  As is probably the story with your families, things get pretty hectic around the holidays.  And because Charlotte is still nice and healthy, we have been kept busy as well with normal holiday type plans.  We spent the last few days doing last minute Christmas shopping and wrapping and celebrating.  We wanted to get to church Friday night but decided against it because of the close quarters the Eve service usually provides.  But we did spend a little time that evening driving around Columbus looking at the Christmas lights.  Charlotte loved it!

Christmas was a swell day.  Charlotte had a great time opening her gifts from Santa.  And she had a good time opening Molly’s gifts.  And Mommy’s and Daddy’s.  She as a standard two year old though, she wanted to play with some of Molly’s toys more than her own.

Charlotte has been sleeping well at night.  She is getting between 10-12 hours of sleep a night so that is great.  Molly is a little different story.  She still gets up a few times during the night wanting to feed only to not want to fall back asleep.  So we still need her to get a little better…but she could be worse.

Charlotte is going to be readmitted tomorrow for a couple more days of chemo.  But hopefully she will be back home by Thursday or Friday, then we go back on Jan 4th for another couple of weeks as she will get more chemo and then they expect her numbers to drop low enough to keep her there.

We still don’t have any new information on the bone marrow transplant.  But we do expect that there will be more discussions about that to be had over the next three weeks while we are at the hospital.

We hope you all had a wonderful and restful Christmas weekend.  Now have a safe and healthy New Year!
