Thank you Sarah

Thank you so much for your prayers Gail

Thank you Jo

Thank you Lisa That's what we're hoping to do with the passport. Hopefully the CMs will understand.

Hi Danie, nice to have you here. We'll be at Saana on 4/24, for Dine with an Animal Specialist.

Thank you Beth. Really appreciate the hugs.



When we got to the lab in town, we found out that clinic had only ordered a CBC, and they usually do a CMP too, so we had to call & fix it. They added a retic., and the lab tech had no idea what that was. She drew a 3rd vial for it, but clinic has never done that, so I don't think it was necessary. Took longer than usual to fill the vials. Can always tell that Angel's hurting during it. There was some miscommunication when the clinic nurse made the arrangements for the labwork, because they were supposed to be processed right away, and faxed to clinic. They weren't done yesterday at all. A different nurse called & made sure they would be processed first thing today.

Found out that ants search for either protein or sweet, and our bait traps were protein, and they weren't interested in them at all. Got a sweet bait trap, and it's been very popular. This should take care of the colony.

After getting back from having the labs done, I found out I needed to go back to town. Busy, busy day, and didn't finish my packing.

Now to try to get the BG pictures posted.

This package is from PrincessMickey

She sent beautiful purses for Angel & me.

The DIS is about to go down for an hour for their daily maintenance, so I'll split it into 2 posts.

This one is mine.

She's pointing to the clasp. Sarah thought it looked like Eeyore's tail, so she added a bow.



Eeyore's tail , which is adorable

Thank you so much Sarah for making me the adorable Eeyore purse! It's so soft and comfortable to carry, and big enough to hold the accordion folder I bought to carry the massive amount of paperwork we need on this trip. The folder didn't fit in the purse I had, so I was very excited that this one was big enough.

PrincessMickey's package, continued.

Some of the pictures are blurry, because she kept moving the purse around to look at it.



Investigating the magnetic clasp



Thank you so much Sarah for the beautiful purse!

Sorry that going to the lab didn't go smoothly for Angel. Hope you get the test results this morning. Glad you got the right ant bait so you can be rid of them and won't have to worry about an invasion while you are gone.

PrincessMickey's purses for you and Angel are so nice. Glad that yours will work perfect to carry your files with you!

I'm sure that Angel is so excited and can't wait for school to end today. Her wish trip starts tomorrow! Enjoy your trip and have lots of fun.

That Eeyore bag is insanely cute. I love the bow.

Have a great trip, I can't wait to read about it. Sorry the lab work was a fiasco, I hope everything comes back OK. I am sure you are also ready to get out of this crazy IL weather and into someplace warmer!

Jen

2 packages arrived yesterday.

They were both from Ahrizel

There were so many different types of items that there are a lot of pictures, so I'm going to make 3 posts.

Lots of stickers on the boxes :



Lots of packages inside, with more stickers











Thank you so much Mary for all of the the wonderful items - duct tape sheets, scrapbook paper, sketch pads, drawing pencil set, pastel sets, colored pencil sets, and markers!

Lab results weren't what we were hoping for But part of it is very good

hgb 13.2 (was 13.6, but that was actually "high", so 13.2 is good )

platelets 95,000 (was 84,000) YAY

ANC 900 (was 3630) Big drop, and it would have been much easier on the trip if she were still in the normal range.

Next clinic appointment is Thurs. May 9



Hope to be back in a little while with the last post of Mary's package

Sorry about the ANC drop. 900 is definitely doable though, armed with the expensive Lysol and collection o' sanitizers. (You *might* have put Bath & Bodyworks in my head, and I *might* have bought 15 new little sanitizers.....) Hurray for hgb and platelets, though! Ride all the rides!

We're heading off to our family camp, so this'll be the last time I'm on before you leave.

Have a fantastic trip and I can't wait to hear all about it! Lots of faith, trust and pixie dust to all 3 of you!

Sorry to hear lab draws were so frustrating... Glad to here she has good #'s! ANC of 900 isn't wonderful, but it isn't too bad either! I know they usually like my daughter's anc to be over 1000, but 900 is pretty close! Hopefully you guys have the best trip ever! Good luck and have a fantastic time!

Thank you so much Lisa, Jo, and Jessica

Jo - about your 15 new sanitizers. Have a great time at family camp

Jessica - Angel's first Dr. used 1000 as his cut off for restrictions instead of 500. We're used to her hovering just below 1000, but had been so excited when she was in the normal range last month.
