Tricia and Gwyneth will be traveling to Durham early tomorrow morning with Tricia's mom. Both of my girls have appointments all day. Tricia has her second round of chemo as well as a transplant clinic, and Gwyneth has an appointment with her preemie docs.
We're praying that the transplant clinic shows that everything continues to look good, especially concerning rejection. We're also praying that the chemo goes well, and that, when we return in a few weeks for an exam, it will show that the treatments are killing the cancer.
We're praying that Gwyneth has grown to, at least, 8 lbs, and that her all of her blood work shows that she is as healthy as can be.
And, of course, we're praying that everyone will travel safe and be home again by tomorrow night or Thursday morning at the latest.
Yesterday, half-way to Norfolk, VA for Gwyneth's eye appointment, our car's computer decided that it wanted to confuse our transmission and cause problems. We had to turn around and take the car to the mechanic. It should be fixed and ready to go by Wednesday afternoon, but we'll have to rent a car tonight so that everyone can get off to Durham by 4am tomorrow morning. We've rescheduled the eye exam for later in the month.
My Band is playing at Kitty Hawk Kite's Watermelon Festival all day Thursday, so I'll be staying on the beach (in case Tricia gets "stuck" in Durham for more than a day). BTW, the Watermelon Festival is a huge family event that KHK sponsors every year...proceeds go to a few national and local children's charities. We're scheduled to play from 11am to 2pm, and the weather looks to be perfect.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers this busy week!
