ANC.--Update January first...

++++We are getting out today :):):) ( january first )+++

One of our Fave Child life workers and Regina.
Thank Kathy for Great New year wishes. BTW. Reginas ANC decided to finally show up. it is 560 now. She had 2 sets of labs drawn today. She is off fluids. BUT now she has another issue. More diarrhea... Nick is in hospital with him, because I was just way to tired to function in hospital environment. MOST of 4th floor rooms are empty. they just sent whole bunch of people home today. Regina has to stay for at least 3 more days- Antibiotics...

Now , that this year is almost over- in 4 hours. I would have NEVER ever imagined that we will be doing what we are doing right now. Regina was talking all year long going to Big Bear to do more snowboarding. Then she wanted to go to Estonia... Then she wanted more sleepovers with her friends.... I am sure relapse was not one of her plans, but hey, if life gives you lemons , you just have to make some sweeeet lemonade... And I am sure we have made plenty of lemonade to last a lifetime.

We are so lucky and happy to have Regina with us . Not in Million years we would have thought that chemo works so well and REgina is pretty much cancer free. Not in million years would I have thought that I would have so much patience and energy to deal with situation the way I am dealing . Not in million years would I have thought that I would ever Love CHLA and Dr Dhall... But we do. We all do. We love our 4th floor nurses , we love Dr Dhall and Finlay and other doctors who have very funky names ;), we love our childlife girls , who always find a moment to fill Reginas wishes for that thay...

We are so grateful for Laguna Niguel Elementary school and it's staff. They have been so understanding and helpful and I am just amazed the support I have been getting from them.

AND most of all, I would have never ever thought that we are surrounded with such great people all around the world. We are humbled by every card, letter, phone call, package, advice, help... etc. We are so blessed to have you all in our life... I just hope that you understand that we do care and appreciate your support. I am sorry for not sending out thank you cards for all of you. I just hope that you all will be there whenever we will need you( most of the time my Needs list consists of one thing- TAKE good care of my boy Gabriel ;) ) ...

Anyway, this past months have been very exhausting months, But outcome speaks to itself. We had HOPE, and We have Regina. Never stop hoping for a Miracle. Never:)

Happy Ney Year

I'll send all my best wishes your way now at the beginning of another New Year. May 2008 bring lots of happy days with cute little moments of joy and dancing and laughing and warm feelings to your family. And a better back to you and success in his business to Nick.

Have a Happy 2008, y'all ;)!

Regina truly is a miracle. I'll never forget reading about the scans in June and the predictions of the doctors. What a little miracle she is.

And what a wonderful way to start the new year, with Regina at your side!

So happy you are out of there now.

And Happy Ney Year to you too.

Happy New Year Diane,

Yes, God has been so good, and I'm so grateful for the many MIRACLES I've witnessed with Regina, first hand.

I'm just so blessed we still have her too.

Praying for many more "millions of things" to be thankful for in 2008!

Your friends down south,

Susan & Jordan
