Day Two

Allie said today was a little easier and tomorrow shouldn't be too bad either. She's in good spirits and is very grateful for all her wonderful friends and family.

Keep it up everyone...one day at a time!

Ladies' Day!

Day One

Allie and Jeff arrived in Minnesota and Monday was filled with appointments for lots of tests. They tested her Renal functions and also did the bone marrow biopsy. Allie said they put her to sleep for the biopsy but since they took samples from both hips, she's a little sore today. The next few days will be filled with more appointments and tests but Allison wants everyone to know she's doing well. I'll keep you posted as I hear more.

Thank you again to everyone who is following their journey, praying and helping out. With so many of us behind them, I know they'll get through this and be back home soon with all of us who love them!

That part sucks...here's the good news: the test for cancerous cells in her spinal fluid was negative!! She's been having headaches and they are working to figure out what is causing them.
