Happy December! We have much to be thankful for this year and we intend to enjoy every minute of this holiday season. Our sweet Mady is such a trooper, she has endured 31 rounds of radiation along with daily low doses of chemo in July and August and as of November 19th she finished round 3 of her 6 high dose inpatient chemo sessions. She is doing ok, lost alot of weight which seems to be the real struggle at the moment. We are just hoping that she can stay above the weight requirement to avoid a feeding tube. Her spirits remain very high with all that she has been through in the past 6 months and we are just so grateful that our girl is a fighter and remains happy during all of her treatments.
To impart some happy news we received, Mady's dog Meko who was stolen on a trip to Arizona in July of 2012 was found!!! He was picked up wandering the streets in Prescott Arizona and taken to the Yavapai Humane Society who scanned for a chip and contacted us on November 12th, 2013. Mady declared that day as the happiest day ever and James traveled more than 500 miles each way to bring her best friend home. Meko has since then has resumed normal life sleeping each night with Mady and spending as much time as he can with her when he isn't teaching manners to our newest furry friend Joey who we adopted 2 days before Mady's diagnosis.
Our family has been through many lows since Mady was diagnosed and this was a very happy and joyus event which we hope to be the first of many.
Next treatment date is scheduled for December 13th, fingers crossed that she makes counts so we don't have to spend Christmas in the Hospital.
Thank you so much for the love, support and prayers for our little angel and family, we feel them every day!
