Jordyn was supposed to go in on the 19th for chemo and an lp, but her counts were really low, so we had to cancel. Her anc was 100, and it needs to be at 750 to continue the treatments. We were kind of happy that we got to have a nice Thanksgiving without a really sick and miserable girl though. Clinic rescheduled her appointment for today, but again her counts are too low. She is at 500 now, so maybe next week she will get her chemo. It is nice sometimes to get a break, but at the same time, I worry more when she isn't getting the only medicine that is keeping the cancer at bay. I figured even though this is short, it would be good to update everyone. Even on our break things have been kind of rough for all of us. Jordyn is still having steroid withdrawls, which make her very emotional and grouchy sometimes. We are so grateful for everyones support and prayers.
Also, for those interested, a friend of mine from our ward has set up a fundraiser for this weekend. It is on December 1st, and there will be lots of crafty items, blankets, holiday decor, and lots of other fun stuff!

And just for fun, here are some pictures.
Jordyn absolutely loves her dress ups, I am not sure she would make it through this without them.
And she adores ponies as well. She even took one to dance class with her, and lets them sleep in her bed. So I decided to put up pictures of her and two of her favorite things that help her cope with the cancer stuff she goes through.
Her little brother also has a favorite thing to do... He loves to color on things he is not supposed to... This time it was crayon on the dishwasher, usually it is marker on the couch... Or chalk on the walls... Or marker on himself... (I have no clue how he manages to get his hands on so many coloring objects, ugghhh... We love him anyway though.
