A Good Day

We are so pleased that Gabriella is having more good days than bad.  It's so amazing to see her bounce back from these treatments every week.  We are starting to see more of a pattern of how she's feeling, the toughest days being Thursdays after her chemo treatment on Wednesday.  Wednesday is always a packed day and Friday is off and on.

Today Gabriella visited school again.  She was so excited to see her friends, check out the gifts (thanks Stacey for the bear), but also surprised me by picking out one of her Barbies to give to her friend Shelby.  She continues to amaze me every day by her kindness and strength.


Bridget ended up staying with G at school and both girls played with their friend Lily.  Bridgy just feels so comfortable and confident having her big sister there to protect her.  It's adorable to see!  
Yes, this is the same dress she wore for the recent photos...thanks Michelle for letting us borrow it.  She loves it!   

After running back and forth from school to whatever errands I could fit in, we finally made it back home.  Auntie Jen and cousin Ella brought an adorable hat and some great chemo books then Nana and Papa came over for dinner.  

Gabriella was so excited when a box from Jelly Belly came but I made her wait until Bridget woke up from her nap to open it.  It was a wonderful package from the Berkeley Firefighters with purple pillows for both girls, jelly beans and a jelly bean dispenser.  I can see we will be eating a lot of jelly beans in the near future!  Thanks guys!  They loved the package.  

Another visit to Lucile Packard tomorrow for G's chemo.  Hopefully we won't be too long so we can come home and relax.  Actually, it's a busy week with Bridget's birthday coming up but I'm excited to celebrate B turning 2!
