Hey! It seems quite interesting to me that so many people want me to mohawk my hair but NO ONE will do it with me...... Hmmmm... I think the poll was rigged?! Anyway, we can't do that now cause he doesn't have any hair- just little prickles here and there!!

Thanks for supporting our blog, care page, and family!

Who is voting????


I would like to know is voting that I should get a mohawk??? I mean, it would be great and all but I do intend on going into the office to work when I am able while at home. I am not sure a mohawk would be appropriate or the hat that I would need to cover it. Trust me, I have been thinking about it.....

Anyway, thanks for taking the quiz and I can't wait to see what the next one will be......

Sorry we didn't get an update posted yesterday. It was a busy day.
Tuesday and Wednesday were good. Sergio got plateletts again yesterday but tolerated them well. We are on the really boring part of our stay now. He has to take meds and wait for his blood counts to come back up. Somedays I feel like this waiting should be able to be done at home but I understand that his counts are so low, home is dangerous for him now. Just can be frustrating. Hopefully we will be going home in the next 10 days or so. Have to wait for his counts to come up before he can have the port put in.
Kathy, Sarah, and Alicia came on Tuesday and stayed for most of the day. It was fun! We played Phase 10, had an italian feast, laughed and just had fun. It was a blast!! Almost made us forget where we are and why.... of course they brought stuff for us. The coolest thing is a remote control bug called N.S.E.C.T. and it actually shoots little foam missiles.... Sergio played with it again until the battery went out!
Stone, Sterlin, and their mom Lissa came up yesterday. These are Sergio's friends from the neighborhood. It was nice to see him smile like that and they wanted to stay the night. Misty and Greg came up last night too. It was nice to see them also.
McKenzey stayed the night on Tuesday with us and hung out all day yesterday here. It was fun to snuggle with her and love on her and then play yesterday. Although we didn't play as much as I had hoped cause I need to work when I can. And yesterday was a good day for that! So, I didn't sleep much on Tuesday night cause I kept waking up worried about her not being covered, smelling her hair, and just looking at her. I miss that little baby!
On Sunday there is a cleaning party happening at our house. My mom is gonna come sit with Sergio so I can go home and help. I really need to feel like I am making a contribution to all of this and so far I don't. So, I am gonna do some physical labor at home and SHOWER at home too!! Then come back up here. I hope it works out! I would love to go home and help make our house healthier for all of us and especially for Sergio.
The benefit plans seem to be going well, although I don't know much as things are being kept from me. It is going to be on October 4th from 4-10 at the Eagles Club on Locust in Davenport. Thanks to everyone who is helping with this! Our family greatly appreciates it!! I am hoping to get some small assignments so I can help with that too. And I REALLY hope that Sergio and I are home to attend!! From my estimation based on how things are going so far, we should be. He may have to wear a mask but time will tell.
Sorry for the long posting and missing yesterday! Have a great day!
Sergio and Melissa
