Ups & Downs

Ups:  We spent a week at Camp Sunshine in Maine and had a blast catching up with old friends and making new friends.  The kids were very busy with their activities each day and even made a few new friends.  They are already asking when we are going back! We continued our vacation through the weekend, heading down to Colin and Maddie's cousins birthday party on Saturday and to the carnival at Lighthouse Point today. Sunday ended with both kids sound asleep by 7:30 which is unheard of!

Downs: The Friday before we left for camp Colin was very pale and his blood draw results indicated that his hemoglobin was down, registering at 8.9. A transfusion is required at 8.0. Although his energy remains good, his color has not improved and we will be heading to clinic in the morning (Monday) for a blood draw to check on his counts. We also learned that someone close to us relapsed earlier this week so we can certainly use some extra prayers and positive thoughts. 

Favor: we entered the kids into a photo contest to win a themed party and photo shoot, with their birthday's just around the corner we thought they would love to celebrate in style. We were in the lead for the first few weeks of the contest but have fallen a bit behind. Can you please take a moment to vote for us? You can vote once per day until July 1st. It’s VERY simple.
