Pre-birthday birthday

Mandy's bloodcounts were great today! So she bellied up to the bar for her weekly Vinblastine. She had a blast at chemo. How's that for a bizarre sentence? But, this is why we love our nurses, our child life specialists and our clinic! 'Cause frankly, if you can manage to make chemo fun for children, well, frankly, that should qualify you for sainthood in my book.

They sang happy birthday at the top of their lungs. They all had a card for Mandy's birthday tomorrow, signed by everyone and they gave her a Hannah Montana Barbie for a birthday present. Really? How much do these people all rock? There is a special place in heaven for each and every one of them.

Nurse Louise, Nurse Lisa, social worker Monique and child life specialist Michelle singing happy birthday to Mandy!

Opening her Hannah Montana doll! Wooohooo!!!!!!!!!

One of Mandy's super favorite nurses, Miss Emily

She even got lucky enough that Miss Kyleen and Miss Jamie from the Children's Cancer Center just happened to be at clinic too! What a great birthday surprise!!!

These people are not just Mandy's nurses, social workers and child life specialists. They are not just a great medical staff. They are all have those things, but they are so much more. They have become friends. They love Mandy. They put up with me and my neurosis. We adore them. We are so lucky to have them guide us through this journey. Thanks for making Mandy feel so special today!

Love to all~
