12:05 PM Here's one member of our household who isn't all that thrilled about Sophie's return from the hospital:
Actually, I think the cats are a little unsettled when our family is in disarray. They much prefer the world to be predictable (don't we all). We are all doing well--when do the girls go back to school? Sophie continues to recover and is doing a great job taking her antibiotics (super-large capsules) three times a day. She has a hacking cough, but we suspect that she is developing asthma (Susan has asthma). Compared to leukemia and chemotherapy, asthma seems totally manageable, though!
We are looking forward to a wonderful family Christmas, and we hope Christmas is a meaningful and blessed event for everyone we know and love.
