Hello from KatieWritten by Katie on October 19th, 2008
Julie is feeling a little “blah” as she says, so I’m going to write an entry for her. Â She has been going in daily for screenings and to have her blood drawn. Â Yesterday she received platelets, she has some white cells now (I believe 200 but am not entirely sure?) and she was told on Friday that the doctors think she is doing “outstanding”! Â She is having difficulty sleeping through the night and the metallic taste is still bothering her. Â My Mom said Julie ate some eggs with toast and a glass of milk the other day and tonight she requested Mama Matthews’ Meatball Supreme (it’s delicious!) Â Hopefully her tastebuds will return soon and she can enjoy her “Coca-cola” (as she calls it)–one of her favorite treats.
We are all so proud of Julie and her positivity, courage and strength. Â I also am proud of her writing on this blog–I check it daily and love not only her writing style but also her honesty. Â
My Dad and I took Jameson and Guinness to Mason Neck yesterday and they had a very special message for Julie:
