No News is Good News

It's been a while since I've posted ... but wanted to let you know that we are enjoying a nice stable time with Elise medically.

Cameron, Elise & Jasper have been spending some good family time together at home. They've made friends with another young family at their apartment complex and have had some barbecues together. They also came to Elise's 4th of July party in Fall City. It was entertaining watching Cameron and the other "big boys" lighting off the fireworks. We had a fun time with lots of "ohs" and "ahs"! The kids (and kids at heart) even roasted some marshmallows for somemores.

Also, on the 4th, Elise's good friend from high school, Jamey and her mom came by ... bringing a beautiful scrapbook they made of memories from a cross-country trip Elise took with them while still in high school. There was lots of reminiscing and catching up going on!

Last Friday, Elise's step-sister Echo gave birth to Luke Andrew. We visited them at Echo & Joe's home yesterday. I'm sending a picture I took with Auntie Elise holding Luke, along with Jasper, Echo, and big brother Lane. After we visited with Luke yesterday, Elise and I took Jasper and Lane to the park to play then to our house to visit and have a some dinner under the shade trees. We wanted to give Cameron, Echo and Joe some time off to rest up.

On Thursday, we go to the doctor again to get ready for Elise's next round of chemo that starts early next week. Then, in mid-August, once Elise stops feeling tired from the chemo, we start some out-patient physical therapy to capitalize on Elise's increasing strength.

Stay cool ... Suanne (Elise's Mom)
