WOW! What a weekend!
Our extended weekend was a blur!
Thursday, Eden had to be at Children's at 8 AM for a blood count check. She was still low pn platelets, so we stuck around for a refill. By going in at 8 AM, she was accessed, checked and refilled and home by 1 PM. We stopped by the garage sale (since it wasn't open I thought it would be a safe bet to stop). The garage sale set-up day was in full force when we got there. Tony and Roby drove all the way from Urbana to help. Roby was an absolute angel and played in his playpen all afternoon with Eden "babysitting" (entertaining him). Mommy picked Eden up after work since we had so much work still to do.
The garage sale turned out to be a HUGE success. We didn't price items, but took donations only. WOW! People are very generous. We had many people buy things and then return to donate others!
Friday night Lt. Dan's New Legs did a benefit show for Eden at The Barn in Dublin. What a great show and another huge success. I finally got my green apple martini! Mommy, Andy, Aunt CeCe, Rod, Stephanie, Jill and many others were there selling raffle tickets and raising money for Eden. Daddy and I were very late to the show due to the garage sale, but we made it.
Mommy has some great support around her, too. She has raffle tickets for sale to win an OSU football that will be autographed by Jim Tressel. The winner will be presented the ball by Jim and will have their photo taken with him, too. Tickets are 1 for $10 or 3 for $25. Contact Lisa for ticket purchases: mailto:email@example.com I think Rourke will have some tickets for sale at work later in the week for all of you Honda people out there.
Eden has an appointment at 9 AM today for more blood counts. I sincerely hope that she doesn't need to have a transfusion. She needs to get her next round of chemo started, but her platelets have to be 75, 000 and last Thrusday they were only 23,000. Lisa said that she hasn't had any new bruises over the weekend, so we are very hopeful that her counts are on the rise.
I'll update later when I know something concrete.
