February 8th, 2008--Update on Lilly

Lilly at Christmas

From Daddy and Mommy:

Lilly's mouth is doing much better and we are going back tonight for her next dose of methotrexate. Our hope is that we will be in the hospital for five days and able to come home for a couple of days and then back again for another dose of chemo that will last five days. That should complete phase two of treatment.

Lilly is doing well and aside from having a sore mouth this last week. She was still smiling and she even giggled for the first time!! Our prayer is that Lilly will handle the methotrexate with little side effects. (this is the one that causes terrible mouth sores.) Also that she will be able to keep her weight up and of course no infections, fevers, or trips to the ICU!!!

Thank you again to everyone that has helped us out. Your support means so much to us. Knowing that all of you are behind us and praying for us makes this difficult time easier to bear.

This is our family life verse: 'I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.

In Him,
Lilly's Family
