Slippery slides....

Hey's Nick bloggin from Verde Lane. Kristin asked that I post a quick update while she is catching up on some rest. Here it goes:
While k stayed home, the kids and I played yesterday and today at two different houses— each with those awesome slippery wet banana slides. You pretty much know summer has started when those things come out! Per usual with a 4 year old, it's all fun until someone catches a skim board in the upper lip! Yes, Fisher got smacked hard, but no, he didn't need stitches this time. Everyone had a blast (including me) so thanks to our friends for the invitations and thinking of us.

Unfortunately, Kristin has had a minor slide of her own...last night, she had some chills and a fever. I have in my pesky chemo notes that this isn't entirely unexpected, but something we need to watch diligently. She started some prescribed antibiotics today and the fever is down, but still present. It sounds so backwards, but she is really, really hoping her white blood cell count is high enough for chemotherapy tomorrow. So, we're monitoring any fever activity and we will move forward as planned. The Brett Michaels frame is packed, SuperBad is loaded on the iPad and Becka and Diane will both be here in the AM. Keep your fingers crossed and we hope all goes as well as possible...stay tuned.


  1. Fingers, toes and eyes are crossed that the blood counts are in range for chemo tomorrow. She will need some TLC this week, but I know she's surrounded by lots of love and help. I'm also available and you know how to reach me! Gotta like watching "Superbad"...what exquisite taste you have in that Jules! :-) And Jules and I send our biggest hugs and prayers for a good week ahead too! xoxo
