Popsicles & Pain

Right now my friend Cassie and I are relaxing after a long day of rock band. She is spending the night and we are planning on going to church in the morning. My surgery went well as McKenna said in my last blog. The pain is manageable with the exceptions of a few tears every once in a while. (: Im absolutly OBSESSED with ICEE popsicles from SAMS. I eat so many a day, its unheathy haha but i could care less... It helps the pain (;

Surgery Complete!

McKenna here. Just wanted to get a brief update out that Liz had her sugery this morning. It was bumped up from tomorrow to today. She is in recovery right now and the doctors think everything went well. This was a very extensive surgery, so continue to pray for Liz as she heals from this surgery. She will be resuming chemotherapy on March 4th. Thank you for your continued prayers for Liz!

Praising HIM!!

This is McKenna, Liz's sister-in-law. Liz is in the hospital starting her final chemo round before surgery and the hospital doesn't let her into blogger to post blog posts for some reason. I think it has to do with "proxys?"

Anyway, there is wonderful news that just can't be wait to be shared! Liz met with the surgeon this morning and he has decided that she can have the limb salvage surgery and avoid amputation!! We are all so excited and thankful right now. Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray for Liz as she finishes this last round of chemo before surgery. She will resume chemo a couple weeks after her sugery. The surgery is scheduled for February 18th. Praising Him!!! ~McKenna

I went in for chemo Friday after my AMAZING 3 week break. I was having a great time in my friends hospital room with my new cancer buddies Paige, Darling and Jonathan, when they came to get me for my dumb old scans. Me and my mom were worried because they were supposed to do them after my chemo. She talked to my nurse practitioner and she said that it will not make a difference. All of that went well as far as i know. So i got my chemo and was out Monday night. Tuesday i just sat at home pretty nauseated. Yesterday i got my last scan and ended up feeling good enough for church. Today im planning on going to my schools bball game and im so happy to finally see then play again (:
Everyday i miss my school more and more. If i felt good enough, i would be there all day EVERY day. The decision will be made next week about my surgery. Im very nervous...
Please pray that i will be able to control how nervous i am and keep trying to take this one day at a time.
