Wiped Out!

After the egg hunt this morning, we walked home and the girls HAD to sort through all the goodies. Kerstin was complaining of a headache and stomach ache. I (Annie) gave her some Phenergan and an ice pack and then went to fix lunch. By the time lunch was ready, Kerstin was crashed on the living room. I moved her to her bed (she didn't even open her eyes), and she took an hour and a half nap. When she woke up, she was feeling much better. The rest of the day she felt pretty good. She came down with another headache this evening, but felt better after taking some Tylenol. The last few days have seemed like a series of ups and downs, although not as bad as two weeks ago.

Thanks so much for checking on us! Happy Easter to you all! Posted by Picasa

Egg Hunt

Our wonderful neighborhood association holds an Easter egg hunt each year. This year Annie and the girls even got to help clean up the park and hide the treats beforehand. There were many wonderful goodies to be found. Kerstin even found a numbered egg that meant she won a HUGE Easter basket. McKinsey won a cute butterfly. There were only a few raindrops before the hunt began, otherwise it was a beautiful morning! Posted by Picasa

Feeling Better

Kerstin's runny nose has seemed to clear up. She went back to school yesterday, but experienced several headaches during the day. They don't seem to be as severe as she has experienced, but it would still be nice not to have them at all. The kids have the day off from school (Good Friday) and it looks like the weather is going to be great. I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time outside today.

We hope you all have a great Easter weekend.

Runny Nose

Kerstin stayed home from school today because of a runny nose. No fever, or headache, or stomach ache, just a lot of green stuff coming out. So far, her new ATRA dose seems to be working without giving her some of the problems she has been having in the past few weeks. It's always a bummer to have a head cold with such nice weather.

Spring Cleaning

Kerstin and McKinsey and I (Annie) spent the rest of the afternoon today working outside. The weather was beautiful! The girls decided it was time to clean out the play house. They swept and mopped and filled 2 bags of trash. They also rearranged the play house and had me move in their portable chalkboard. The play house has not been transformed into a one room school! What fun! Kerstin felt great all day! We pray that this will continue all week long! Have a blessed week!


Kerstin, McKinsey and Annie were able to spend a few hours this afternoon bowling with the Lincoln Candlelighters. This group is for families of children with cancer or other serious diseases. We haven't been able to get to a monthly meeting since December, so it was nice to be able to go today and have a fun time!
