10:30 PM: We haven't posted an update in a while, but all is well. Mom is visiting, so we've been too busy hanging out, doing fun things, and visiting to spend much time on the computer. Sophie is doing just fine. Her cough is all but gone, and she feels well. The dressing change on Friday went pretty badly, but it did get changed. I know it will get better, but I do hope it will work out to get rid of the PICC line after her next treatment on 9/19.
Elisabeth's birthday is on Thursday, and she's very excited about it. It's nice that Mom can be here for that. Randall and I will actually not be here for most of her birthday. Randall won a drawing for a free night at the Washington Duke Inn, so we're redeeming that and going out to dinner in Durham. Mom and the girls have big plans for that night, so she'll have a good time (and we'll celebrate with her that morning and at her small party on Saturday).
We found out today that Sophie's Make-a-Wish trip to Disney World will almost definitely be November 13-19. Of course, Sophie is scheduled for treatment that week, but I'm sure they can move it forward to the week before. Just one more official sign-off, but they say there's no reason to think it won't happen on those dates. It's exciting to have the date set and know it's going to happen. What a wonderful treat that will be!
