If you are so inclined........

You can donate to Catriona's care here

Giveaway and update

Nancy over at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is having another giveaway.  This time, it is fall colors in floss!

Catriona is doing pretty well.  She is off of the oxygen now, which allows her to leave her room and go to the play areas.  Her and her mom went to 2 of them on Thursday or Friday and it was a HUGE morale booster for little Catriona.  I saw a picture of her playing and she was practically glowing!  Keep the prayers and good thoughts coming.  She is far from out of the woods.

Thanks!

Presenting

Princess Tough Cookie
Or is she ...
Tinkerbell?

She is doing well.  Her appetite has improved and she kept her lunch down today.  Her spirits are good, too.  She got mad at her dad (my son) today for no reason :-)  she has had one round of chemo and has the next round Friday and Saturday.

Please keep the prayers and good thoughts coming!

Preliminary diagnosis

Is Pleuropulmonary Blastoma.  I googled it, but couldn't get past the word "cancer" to read any more without crying.

When I can quit crying enough, I'll find out more and let you know.

Update

She is still in the hospital, on oxygen, IV fluids and antibiotics, and pain meds from when they did the biopsy (Friday evening).  We hope to have results back soon.  She's being a very brave little trooper.  


The post I mentioned before got posted to the wrong blog!  Oops!  I've removed it from the Chatelaine Stitcher's blog.


Please keep sending good thoughts and prayers.

Update

They were wrong about it being a cyst or abscess.  They don't know what it is and she is having surgery tomorrow at 1 p.m. Eastern time.  Please continue prayers and good thoughts!

I will update again after surgery tomorrow.

(Looks like the post I did earlier with good news never made it here.  Sorry for any confusion.)  Darn blogger!  :-)

Prayer request

I am praying for Texas, but I  am also requesting prayers for my 4 year old granddaughter.  She has a spot on her lung that is growing.  It is either cancer, a tumor, or severe pneumonia.  She sees a lung specialist tomorrow morning at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis.  Please, if you can, pray for her and her parents.  Thank you!!

Odds and ends

Found at a yard sale.  I have never seen one on legs like this!

Yup, went to see Neil Diamond!  Bought this blanket and the t-shirt below.  Also got a hoodie, but the picture didn't come out.

Be back soon with more pictures.  Maybe even tonight!
