Long Time No News

It has been a long time since my last update. Where to start? Emily and Kathy have been home for about a week and a half and are still getting settled in. As you can imagine home feels a little wierd after what they have been through. It is getting better every day!

Emily has her first set of labs, since comming home, tomorrow. On Wednesday she has her first doctors appointment. She will have another biopsy in a couple of weeks. So far everything is going great - we just need to see how this week goes.

A week ago Sunday, my friends at Imperial Outpost games hosted another fund raiser. It went very well and Emily and I were able to stop in and thank everyone in person. Thanks again guys! It is a big help. There are a couple more gaming events coming up.

Emily got a card from her former teacher and it seems that they also had a fundraiser over the halloween holiday. They had a haunted house and raised some donations. Thank you! As soon as I get the flyer scanned I will post it up.

Kathy was back to work last night. Her first night of work in three months. She was really stressed but it seems that all went well.

More news when I have it. No news is good news...right?

Emily is Home!

Kathy and Emily got home at about 4:30am today. My Dad drove over last night, after the doctors OK'ed the return, picked them up and turned around and drove all night. This is all starting to get real. I can't believe that we have gotten through this nightmare!

More later...I just can't believe I have to work today!

Almost Home

Sorry for the lack of post but things have been pretty quiet, thankfully.

The last couple of weeks Kathy and Emily have settled into a routine. They are back in the Ronald McDonald House, in a small room. The TV doesn't work very good and they are too far away from the wireless signals to access the internet from the room. They have been able to get out some and see the area but resourcs are limited for this type of activity. They have been managing but they are getting restless.

On Wednesday, Emily has another biopsy. They have been told that after the results are back the doctor will release Emily to come home! It will take atleast a day to get all the results back but it seems like she might be home by Friday. I just can't wait - it is even worse for them. We are so close now.

It is hard to believe that almost 15 weeks have past since all this began. It seemed like the day of her homecomming would never arrive and now it is just a few days away. Time flys when you are living through a family crisis!
