It has been another incredible week and a half at the Elske house.  Last Sunday, Charlotte and I were able to to participate in a fishing outing on Lake Waubesa with the Badger Childhood Cancer Network.  She didn’t like the loud motor or going very fast, but loved being on the boat and looking out at the water.  She had an even better time once we caught a few fish!  It was an awesome time, but now Daddy wants a new boat!

Last Monday Charlotte had another photo shoot for the article for Inspire Magazine with another little girl with ALL.  They both did so well, we can’t wait to see the pictures!

On Friday we had a great time at the Relay for Life.  Charlotte’s Angels helped the Columbus/Fall River area raise over $27,000 for cancer research.  Thank you to all of our generous donors!  Charlotte loved walking the Survivor lap with Grandpa Elske and friends of the family Joan and George.  It was such a sweet sight to see her walking among the rest of the adults with their purple shirts on.  I only wish they didn’t have to make them in children’s sizes.  Many thanks to our friends and family who came out to walk with us until well beyond the kids’ bedtimes.  And Amy and I would like to sincerely thank Scott, Lyle Jr and Chris for walking with us through the night.  Scott walked until well after midnight, then drove another hour home.  Lyle and Chris walked until after the closing ceremonies at 6am.  Charlotte’s Angels was often the only team on the track, and it can get lonely out there at 3am.

Charlotte’s clinic appointment with Dr Diamond is coming up on Friday morning.  We haven’t met with her since before CJ’s transplant, and we are praying her test results show things are still on the up and up.

6 words can say a lot.
