First, let me thank my wonderful husband for updating this site over the weekend. I just took a mental break and did not want to do much of anything related to Grant's cancer.

As David said, we had a GREAT Saturday. Sunday was good for us too. It was the first time since Grant's diagnosis that we all got to go to church together followed by our usual standard - breakfast at Skeeters. After breakfast, Grand and David went to Toys R Us for another sword (Grant wanted to fight his daddy who was not in possession of one) and Claire, my mom, and I went to get a pedicure. It was so nice to just being normal weekend things.

Today I took Grant to clinic after dropping Claire off at school - which by the way she just walked right in, sat down and said "Bye Mommy." Anyway, after sitting around clinic for a while and getting his blood tested, they decided to postpone his next round of chemo until next week. His bone marrow is filled with too many baby new stem cells and they don't want to kill those off. SO WE GET A WEEK AT HOME!!! Yeah!!!!

We will try to go to the movies tomorrow since Grant's ANC is really good and we are going to try and plan a weekend getaway. We need it!

Okay, I am going to go turn on my soap that is about to be off the air and relax for a little bit!
