Kim had another good day today - we appreciate each one, thanking God for our blessings. We went to Dr. Taetle's today, to have Kim's blood drawn to be sure she could get her chemo on Monday...it's a nail biter, since we will not know the results until Monday! Kim's appointment is for 10:30 a.m. Monday, with Marylynn, the nurse practioner, to review the results, exam Kim and then determine if she can receive her chemo. We will be praying through the weekend that she can get the chemo she needs to start fighting the cancer.
After her appointment, we went to Sunflower Market, Kim in her wheelchair, and stocked up on fresh fruits and vegetable to keep Kim strong. We baked some yams and Kim ate one like a baked potato and had a fruit salad that I made for her. She did pretty well today, but by around 5, she needed to get into bed.
The bambini's had a fun day at school. Tonio and Autumn attended a pizza party that was thrown for the students who achieved their accelerated reading goals three months in a row. After school, Tonio went shopping with Mrs. Schrantz for supplies the classroom needs for a project they will be doing next week. They also made a stop at McD's! Autumn played with some good friends until it was time to go home and Patti gave them both a ride to our house. I picked Cody up at school and he was jazzed - he had scored a 94% on his algebra benchmarks, a large part of his grade this quarter. He has worked so hard and with the help of Mrs. Lopez, seems to be understanding it well. It was a great end to his school week. The kids have one week to go before school ends for a three week Christmas break.
After we put Kim in bed, we ran down to Target so the kids could pick out some gifts to give to their mom for Christmas. They were very thoughtful as to their choices - they are so sweet. On the way home, we stopped at Red Box and picked up A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carrey, then, we ate some great chicken, rice and salad that our friend, Vonda, made for us tonight - Kim had seconds on everything. We started the movie around 7:30 and less than half way through the movie, everyone is asleep...so if you haven't seen this version, this might save you some time and $$!
Now, I'm praying that Kim gets a good nights rest and has a great weekend, looking to get going on the cancer fight Monday!! In Jesus' name we pray...
