Another little sister for Sarah

Hello All,

I know it has been over five months since we have written on the blog. Sorry for such a long break. We still need your prayers for Sarah and thanks for everyone who keeps asking how she is doing. Below are some "highlights":

1. Anne has a scheduled C-Section on Monday, 16th at 7:30 AM. Sarah will have her fourth little sister!!

2. Over the summer, Sarah went through three months of counseling with a Psychiatrist at Children's Medical.  We've seen great results from this time. Sarah is learning to handle her emotions much better and although she still has along way to go, we are seeing progress!!

3. Sarah and Hannah started school at McKinney Christian Academy. Sarah has shown her progress from the counseling sessions and has made new friends, was picked for the honor choir, and doing great with her school work.

4. Last week, Sarah had her appointment. (She goes every other month to the clinic). It was a great report as all of her blood counts were great, but it was also a sad day. Dr. Appel from Children's Medical is moving to Colorado. Dr. Appel has been incredible during these three and a half years. She has not only been a rock for Sarah, but for me and Anne also. We are going to miss her, but I believe she is a big reason why Sarah wants to be a children's oncologist when she grows up. :)

5. With the current changes at Children's we are not for certain if anything will change with Sarah's schedule. At this point, we are supposed to continue 6 check-ups per year at the clinic until 2015.  So that means every other month Sarah has her blood tested.

Thanks again for walking with us,
