We hope that everyone had a very enjoyable Christmas. Because of her compromised immune system, Julie recently developed a case of shingles. Shingles are painful under normal conditions, but with her chemo-sensitive skin, she has been in some pretty severe pain. She is still hurting, but there has been a bit of improvement, and we're hoping that she's turned the corner and is on the road to recovery from this issue. If there are no complications, the current plan is for us to return to Houston New Years week for a scan and her next chemo treatment. We are hoping that her white blood cell count will be high enough for her to receive the treatment on Thursday, January 4th.
And we wish everyone a happy, wonderful, and prosperous New Year!
