Josie's day was a great one! Matt told me that her meds are at the right level and she is feeling well. Another great day at school with her friends with no headaches. Then home for family time and bike riding with her little brother Josh and daddy while Sam took a nap. Everyone was able to enjoy each other's company and regroup a little bit. Lots of deep breaths, smiles, hugs, and sunshine.
Tomorrow back to Hershey for some tests. It will be a busy day for Jo so Matt and Alissa have arranged a room at the Hershey Lodge for afterwards. Depending on how Josie feels after her tests, they plan to swim, play, and eat lots of chocolate and candy! Of course they will squeeze in some dinner and a good night's sleep. I bit of indulgence before Josie's first minor surgery on Thursday. At that time, a biopsy will be done to determine the exact nature of this tumor. I talked to Alissa this morning...she loves reading everyone's comments. She and Matt are so happy to have a place to turn to hear from so many people who love and support them and are with them through this most challenging time.
Matt, Alissa, Josie, Sam, and Josh...your family is so strong. XOXO
