Body Scan twins!

Madalyn went into CHOC children's hospital for a bone scan and I went into check to see if any of the cancer had come back.  It was a week of scans for the two of us!  I got good news!  No more cancer cells showing!  Madalyn got bad news....she has osteoporosis.  Unfortunately she is too young and small framed to take the prescription drugs for osteoporosis.  So for now she is using a bone stimulator machine that she wears 30 minutes every day to help strengthen her bone.  The goal is to get her bone to grow around her hardware.  

 Here is her latest X-ray also.  So weird to think those screws are 1 1/2 inches long and they do not puncture her lungs!!

5th Grade Science Camp

Meredith was able to go to 5th grade Science Camp the week after Thanksgiving break.  The weather was going to be cold so they were all hoping for snow.  However all they got was lots of rain!  Their bags and clothes were soaked.  They were so wet that the camp actually took the kids clothes to a local laundry mat to dry them (thankfully).  The camp was in Big Bear and Meredith had a great time!

 These were very popular Target special boots that lots of girls wore!

 Welcome Home!  We missed having Meredith around.  It was weird to only have four of us at the dinner table each night.  It gave us a sad realization that this is how it will be for our family in 9 months when both Mackenzie and Madalyn are away at College.
