Hi Again!

Things are looking good for Mel. She had some blood work done at Logan Regional Hospital and her numbers were all up! She is optimistic and happy. She is enjoying spending time with family. Her nephews and nieces love to play with her "new" toys that have been in her classroom for years.

On a more somber note, one of Melanie's neighbors in the LDS hospital has passed away. He was in pretty bad shape. It serves as a reminder of how unpredictable leukemia can be. It was some tough news for Mel and our mom to receive.

Melanie will be heading down to Salt Lake on Monday night. She has a lumbar puncture scheduled for Tuesday morning. I asked Mel if these make her sick and she doesn't honestly know because she has always been in the hospital on so many other medications. I guess we'll know soon enough. Keep her in your prayers. She will stay in Salt Lake over night to be close to the hospital should anything go wrong. I know she is hoping to be back for Kaden's game on Wed.

We love you Mel!

Really happy to hear about your good numbers, Mel. It helps and gives you great cause for staying optimistic. So sorry to hear of the passing of your hospital friend. This really is a roller-coaster ride all the way, but we hae high hopes and many things to be grateful for! Love you,
