I forgot something, go figure!

Yes, they are holding Peyton’s chemo. Don’t know how long, but hopefully it’ll give her some rebound time. I can’t wait to see those counts come up.

Thank you all so much for your encouragement and for the ones who are sharing about your own experiences, you don’t know how much you’re helping.

    Okay, so I know that I have no idea what it's like to have a child with cancer, but I take Valtrex for cold sores on my lips and I can honestly say that I think it's the best drug out there! When I first feel the tingle, well, being me, I don't feel the first tingle, because they happen when I'm asleep, and take Valtrex, the cold sore does not even come out all the way and it's totally gone in a few days. I don't want you to think that I'm trying to downplay it, because I KNOW how painful they are and I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy, but I think that the Valtrex will really help Peyton and she will be feeling better soon. On to the other issue, my daughter Ashton, 11 years old, has always had a constipation issue, (she will absolutely kill me if she knows I've written this), and what I've found to help her that's all natural is the GOYA fruit nectars. they are in the regular grocery store with all the other GOYA stuff and they are like a thick juice with a lot of fiber and they really help her alot. I try to go natural on that kind of thing whenever I can. I think it's the pear, mango and peach ones that she likes the best. They taste soooo much better than prune juice and I don't have to bribe her to drink them. I hope that some of this information eases your mind a little bit, I wish I could take the pain right away from poor Peyton, she's such a little doll!
    We will be keeping her in our prayers! along with the rest of the family, great job on the painting by the way Rachael!! LOVE THAT!
