Great news today! Jeff's white blood counts are back up and he no longer has to give himself a daily Neupogen shot. Woo hoo! Now all he has to do is take it easy and rest-up for the next cycle of treatment. In the meantime, the other great news is that I get to take the kids to visit him this weekend! They are all so excited. This will be their first plane ride and their first trip to Texas. I told Aubrey that Texas state law requires everyone under the age of 12 to wear a cowboy hat at all times--except when removing it in reverence to salute the Texas Flag (another state-mandated activity), of course. (Don't tell her I'm kidding until she gets home!) Ha! It would be great if we could take them to visit NASA while we're there, but that could interfere with our big plans for watching the Super Bowl in the apartment! All of us being together will be fantastic no matter what! Lest I forget, the kids are also excited to see Grandma Mary--they're going through withdrawal after having had her at home for the past three weeks.
All is right with the world.
Much love, Kelly
