9:00 PM: It was cold and somewhat dreary today, so Sophie couldn't really play outside (although she did suggest it several times). Randall headed out of town this morning for a three-day workshop out at the beach. Sophie had a fairly good day and was happy to read and play with Sabine while I worked at home. We had big plans to pick up Elisabeth from school, go out to dinner, and then do a bit of shopping. Unfortunately, Sophie got sick in the car on the way to the restaurant. We cleaned her up, got some food to go and headed home. We did go ahead and give her some zofran, even though we think it was just motion sickness and probably not chemo-related. Although we gave her a bath, the smell really got into her dressing, so we went ahead and changed it. She was quite upset while it was being changed, but once the new bandage was on, she happily helped me smooth it down and take the tape edges off.

Elisabeth is spending the night at a friend's house and will ride to school with their family in the morning so Sabine can head out early to the clinic with us. It will be nice to have her help and company, and she will get a better idea of what Sophie's treatments are like. We think all Sophie has to do tomorrow is get methotrexate through a spinal tap. If we're right, and she doesn't have to take any IV chemo, we should be able to leave as soon as she wakes up from the anesthesia.


I hope that all goes well today - I'll be thinking of you and Sophie!

I think you guys are an awesome family, just by reading the updates daily. I'm so glad you take the time to post Sophie's progress, we are so anxious to hear what is going on with all of you. My daughter, Madelyn is a classmate of Sophie's and we are looking forward to seeing her back at school. With God all things are possible!!! Love & Prayers, Deanna
