Kerstin and McKinsey helped out with painting the basement on Friday. (I use the word help with tongue in cheek.) We will reveal the basement project on Tuesday. Keep checking back.

Visit From Pastor Greg

Pastor Greg came by for lunch today (he brought Doozy's) and stayed for a nice visit. He even got in on Kerstin's dressing change with the home health nurse. Posted by Picasa

A Trip To The Mall

With the permission of Kerstin's oncology nurse, Kerstin got to get out of the house and go to the mall. Her counts are high enough that she can have some limited exposure to the public. Of course we took precautions and wiped down the rides with Clorox wipes and used plenty of hand sanitizer after she got off of them. And a trip to the mall just isn't complete without a stop at the cookie store. (For more pictures click on the title "A Trip To The Mall")

Nail Salon

While Annie and I went up to Kerstin's school for the Ring Pop party, a good friend of ours came over to stay with Kerstin. They had a great time turning the kitchen in to a nail salon. Colleen left her supplies here so they can finish the job this Thursday.

Ring Pops

Both Kindergarten classes at Rousseau sold Ring Pops a couple of weeks ago to raise money for Kerstin. Today Annie and I went to school so the kids could present us with the money. They sold A LOT of Ring Pops. We want to thank all of her classmates and teachers for their generosity.

During the presentation, the kids held up a sign that stretched across the entire multipurpose room. You can see the entire sign by clicking on this post's title ("Ring Pops").

Labs Today

Kerstin went in to the "Infusion Center" at St. E's today for her blood work: ANC is 841 (up from 623 on Thursday) and everything else looks good. Other than that, just another day of school time with Mr. Knobel and goofing off at home.
