OK here it is, I had planned on doing this update late last week, but then we found out that our friend Sammy was not given much time to live as his leukemia had returned, very sad and heart breaking. Sammy gained his angle wings on Saturday. Please keep his parents in your prayers, they are amazing people!

So here is our little update. Amelia has been doing really well, she will be 9 months post transplant next week on the 27th. her counts are doing fairly well too. She is bored and wanting her counts to be high enough for her to be able to go back to school for at least half days, in secrete I want that for her too! she needs the socialization...she is a little butterfly. Her doctor here is extremely cautious, Amelia would say a little too Cautious!! She is planning on trying out for cheer leader at the end of March.

On the health front, Marshall has been leading the pack! He has an ear infection, and it doesn't want to clear up so we will be making an appointment with the ENT. He went to the dermatologist and had two moles removed and one of them came back precancerous, so next week he will go back and they will have to cut more cells out. We will need to check them out regularly now. He has also been having some issues with his liver levels coming back elevated, so we went to the hem/oc. He is sending us to a GI doctor. Marshall had an ultrasound of the abdomen and his gallbladder is still full of gallstones. They have been there since after transplant and for a few years it would flare up, but it hasn't flared up in pain since some time in 2006. I guess we will see what the GI doctor says. The hem/oc doctor feel that it is causing the increase in the liver functions test, so they are thinking that it will need to be removed. We will see in the upcoming weeks. We also have to go back to having his IVIG done monthly.
Ty will be having eye surgery one March 8th. They will be tightening his left eye muscle so it won't be wondering!
So there is a lot going on, so we will be very busy over the next few weeks!
Here are a few pictures of Amelia's hair it is getting thick and very curly! I will have to get one of how it is normally, there are from a day i talked her in to letting me use the flat iron on it

Well gotta run early day tomorrow as it is Mardi Gras here and I am going to take the kids to the parade for a little while tomorrow!!
Hopefully I will try to update of just plain ole blog a little more often!!
