Also I want to send out a thank you to Ashley Haggerty and everyone who helped at the bake sale. She also has more of the ribbon magnets for $5.00 each - you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one. Here is a picture (they're actually orange):

So I got my new central line put in today. For those of you who don't know what that is it's basically a permanent IV - it's a tube that comes out of my chest that they can hook up to 3 things to. They can also draw blood from it so it keeps me from having to get stuck. So far it's not very sore at all so hopefully it stays that way. My lung test went better on Wednesday so the only thing they are changing is that they are going to shield my lungs a little more during the radiation - they are not decreasing the dosage of the chemo like they thought they may have to do. This will kill off more of my bone marrow which makes the chance of relapse of the Leukemia smaller so I'm glad my lungs were strong enough to go ahead with the high dose chemo. I go in the hospital tomorrow at 8 am and start the chemo. These last few weeks have been great out of the hospital and I can definitely say I'm ready for this!
