So far so good

Hi all, before I start I'd like to apologies for the lack of an update last week.
Ellie was very unwell after chemo last week and had to go back into hospital. She spent the night on St. Johns Ward and 24 hours later she was much better thankfully.
On the upside Ellie got to see the magic show before she left the hospital, Ellie and the other children laughed so much their stomachs were sore.

To the staff on the ward and Mr. Magic a big thank you.
Laughter is a fantastic medicine.

Thankfully Ellie has just begun another short break so this week was just bloods and dressings, blood results were good.

We are looking forward to another three weeks chemo free and hopefully Ellie can put on a few pounds.

Thank you to everybody that has sent cards and well wishes. A special thank you to the ladies that made beautiful handmade cards.Below is a picture of just some of the hand made cards Ellie received.

We also got to see the Lorax 3D last weekend.
A great movie with plenty of laughs.

All going well

Ellie back in hospital yesterday, bloods are borderline and we need to keep a close eye on Ellies temperature. Ellie has a slight touch of a cold/flu so hopefully she can shake it off without having to go into hospital.

Hair is getting thinner but with the help of bandannas and some pretty cool hats Ellie is looking as beautiful as ever.

On another note Ellie went to Croke Park to see Dublin play Wexford with dad, brother Aaron and big sis Leah last weekend.
We all had a great day and the Dubs won.............again.

Here are some pics of Ellie and Leah doing Jedward jumps on way to the match.
Aaron is looking on pretty embarrassed in the background.

Talk soon.
