Thank You

We want to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who has helped us over the last month. Words cannot express what it has meant to us.

Rowan (and Megan) are still in the hospital. Rowan had developed a UTI- that's what caused the fever. It is a very low grade fever, and Rowan's white cell count is still strong (Rowan's in the most danger 8-12 days after chemo). She's happy and energetic. This morning she "read" her first word: "Moo," off page one of Sandra Boynton's "Moo Baa La." For those unacquainted, Boyton's books completely enthrall anyone under the age of five. They make anyone over the age of five want to rip their ears off.

Meg's mom is in town giving us some extra help and relief. We might try to make a movie this weekend (is Batman still in theaters?). Thanks again to everyone.

Word of advice, don't get any Boynton music. It is pure filth. Evil, terrible filth. Beware of any songs or music, the text is bad enough. You are welcome. Best of luck with USF.

She READ? Great, now I have to add another thing that V must do ASAP. We're falling behind!! (That's one of her fav books, btw.)

I hate to say this, but I actually like Boynton's books.
