Things are looking up!

May 23, 2011

Classic Taylor…..never one to see the negative in anything, she has embraced everything that LPCH has to offer….including PROM.  She started school today at the hospital and was told that they are having a Prom next week.  Where she got this dress I’ll never know.

Anyway, her first procedure it tomorrow morning.  She has asked for an In & Out Burger for dinner cuz she can’t eat or drink tomorrow.  Fingers, toes, eyes…everything crossed that tomorrow is a great day!

    Of course there is a prom at the hospital tomorrow, and of course they have a lavender strapless dress for Taylor to wear — she looks lovely!

    We’ll be pulling for her from here 😉

    What a GREAT idea going back to your blog. Leave it to you guys to figure this out. Thank you for keeping us all posted. I sent Jeff a note the other day so the rest of the family can be aware of what’s going on. You may hear from him (he asked for Rick’s number – OK to give to him?).

    Positive energy and prayers coming your way today and tomorrow.

    Hugs to all,
    Beth
    P.S. Sorry about not getting back to you on your request for a ride for your mom. We were in Chico moving Emily. Best way to reach us is through Laura’s or my cell phones. 🙂

    Seems to me we can all learn something from Taylor–and the rest of the Lowells. Sending good energy your way today . . . hope for a great report and pics from the prom!

    That’s my, girl! Taylor, you’ve been on my mind and I’m so happy to see you in pretty prom wear. I know you will face whatever lies ahead with spunk and style!

    Laura,
    I am sending you my love as you go through this. Claire let me know. I don’t know if she told you that I was diagnosed with leukemia (ALL) in early February, so I have been in and out of the hospital these last few months. I have had two hospital stays, each a month long. So I can relate to what you are going through. I am jealous of Taylor. I never got to go to Prom at the hospital. 🙂 They let me “walk the yard” three times a day, but that is about it. During my last stay we brought a card table in to do puzzles and play cards. I know the feeling of not knowing exactly the plan. Doctors only tell so much. They don’t want you to anticipate too much.
    I am looking forward to hearing more about Taylor’s success in getting this thing taken care of.
    If you are interested in catching up on what I have been up to these last few months, just register on my website:

    Lots of love,

    Laura,
    As I read your blog, I see you had quite an adventure. I haven’t read all the entries, so I don’t know the extent of it yet. So glad you were able to do that without any medical emergencies. So glad you and your family were able to have that experience before all this went down with Taylor. I know that is how I feel about our trip to Costa Rica last summer. So glad I was able to enjoy two weeks there with no other worries. So glad we did not have any big plans this summer.Our big plans this summer is to cure me…which will happen.
    In the bonds,
    Beth

    Taylor – you look amazing. (And as a mom I love that you made your bed in the background, too.) Max (5-1/2) says he loves purple and Megan (10 weeks today) will probably like to borrow it when she’s older.
    Our positive thoughts are with you and know that you are such a strong girl that you’ll be just fine. And what great stories you’ll have to tell us about LPCH school!
    Love,
    Kevin, Cristina, Max and Megan
