Yea Party!

Abby's last bag of chemo was taken down at 9 last night. She is on the medication they give her to protect her bladder now until her discharge later today. Her potassium levels have been low this time so they want to be sure that is stable before she leaves.

The Child Life staff is throwing her a "Yea Party" at noon today to celebrate being done. It will be good for her. Her spirits are a little low today...she is very homesick and I am certain that she knows that although her chemo is done, this isn't really the end. She is not looking forward to being neutropenic and her neupogen shots. So, pray that we will be able to turn her focus off of her fears and onto God. He has never left us and we are confident He will continue to carry us through the rest of this.

We'll post from Tucson after her stem cell infusion.

Celebrating with you from my office

To Abby and the rest of the Oldham family, I am celebrating with each of you today! This chemo series has been an enormous challenge for Abby personally and for you all as a family. You have overcome this hurdle with incredible strength and courage and you continue to be an inspiration to many who continue to follow your journey. I pray that Abby will feel her angels around her so that her fears and homesickness will diminish. Love to all. YEAH ABBY!!! YOU ARE A SUPERSTAR! Aunt Shelly

My prayers are certainly with all of you.

Abby, please enjoy your Yeah Party. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. You are such a brave young lady, and always in my prayers. I'm so grateful your Uncle Rich pointed me to this site. C.R. and Amy, you are a wonderful inspiration for me. Thank you for showing me how faith can work.
