Round Two...

Reid was admitted to the hospital Tuesday evening for the second round of chemo.  As expected, his platelets had gone up to a safe level.  The way things look now he should be coming home on Christmas Eve, but will have to return to the hospital on Christmas Day for the shot that helps build up his white blood cells. 

Keith will be arriving from Austin on Christmas Eve and Troy will come over on Christmas Day, but we expect that Reid will not be feeling well.  After the first round of chemo he was sick for a week, so we will celebrate Christmas at a later date when Reid feels better and Keith is back from Austin.

I probably won't have time to post again for a while.  I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and you find lots of surprises under your tree!

Circa 1949?


  1. I'm glad that your son will be able to come home for Christmas even if he won't be up for much. I'm sure he will feel better at home than at the hospital.

    Cute picture of you on the bike!

    Merry Christmas to all at your house!

  2. Merry Christmas, Betty. For whenever you celebrate it!

  3. Hi, Betty! I am sorry that your family can't celebrate Christmas on time; hope all goes well with the chemo and I'm hoping hard that Reid might not feel as sick this time. Is that possible? Thinking of you (cute picture of an easier time for sure, eh? -- I'd love to shoot back to the early 50s myself)

  4. Praying that Reid will have an easier time of this round of chemo....

    The picture is precious.... I love the black and whites.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    Merry Christmas

  5. Betty, sending many wishes for moments filled with peace and hope this holiday season.

    You are all in my prayers.
