Happy Birthday Miss Ellie

Well after the good news of the positive results from Ellies MRI, what better way to celebrate than with a birthday. Ellie will be 9 years old on Monday the 17th of September.
We had a lot of Ellies friends over to help us celebrate on Saturday afternoon. We had lots of sweets, cake, pizza and hot dogs.
We organised Little Miss Party Nails for the girls, Jacqui and Elaine kept the girls entertained by doing lots of lovely nail art, tattoos and jewellery making.

Ellie started maintenance chemo last Tuesday September 11th, all went well and without any sickness.
Her chemo sessions will be three weeks on then three weeks break and so on till September 2013.

A big thank you to everybody that has sent get well cards, birthday cards and presents to Ellie recently.
They have lifted Ellies spirits and put a smile on her face.

Talk soon.

Well we got a call from Our Ladys giving Ellie good results from the MRI she had last week.
Growth in the tumor has stalled and there may even be a very slight decrease in the size of it.
This is the best news we could have got, Ellie has gone through a lot these last few months and although this doesn't shorten the course of chemo. It means that we can plough into the next 12 months and a positive result is more likely after this MRI.

Ellie is back in the hospital for chemo tomorrow, she begins a twelve month period of three weeks of chemo followed by three weeks off and so on.

Thank you to everybody for their prayers and well wishes recently.

Here is a photo of Ellie in her school uniform with a little teddy bear.
The teddy bear was made by daddys friend Breege, thank you so much Breege.
