Boxes: more than just useful

Over Thanksgiving weekend we visited Grandma and Grandpa N in Coarsegold. Since we will (hopefully) be at the other grandparents' house over Christmas, we had a mini Christmas with some larger things that we won't be able to take with us on the plane back to San Diego. Madeleine got a very cool rocking Elephant that she completely loves. However, the box that it came in proved just as much fun, especially when Daddy joined her in it.

The day before Thanksgiving when we were still in San Diego, Madeleine stood up in the middle of the kitchen floor and took two very wobbly unassisted steps! Since then she has sort of been trying to walk, but no major improvements yet. We, of course, are thrilled with that development.

Not so thrilled about the continuing lack of sleep. I was awake from midnight to 3:15am, and then again at 5:30am. And again at 6:30am. Lovely. Of course she sleeps now.

Thank you to everyone for your comments on the last post. No news from any doctors yet about the next treatment plans. We do have a consultation with the radiation (radiology?) doctors at UCSD on Tuesday.

We are happy to hear that today provided better news than Monday. We love you all and wish Madi to be cancer free NOW!! I can only imagine the emotions you felt hearing that the 11 months of chemo is not working. As always let us know if there is anything we can do to help out.

Do you want to go to the zoo or a park on friday?
