A Good Day


Showing off the stickers she earned from tests and procedures


Practicing walking around the crib with Gram
Jordan slept great and woke up in a fantastic mood on Friday. We will likely in the hospital for awhile so we are trying to make her room a bit more fun by decorating it with pictures/cards and creating a play space with the help of a large mat from Child Life Services. Despite our efforts to entertain her on the play mat, Jordan has the most fun while practicing walking around the room…her crib is especially useful for this as evident in the pictures above.On Friday Jordan had some scans and x-rays to determine the extent of spread to her bones. The tests showed the cancer was only in the bones around her eyes, which we already knew about….this doesn’t really impact her staging/treatment, but it certainly makes Craig and I feel better…the fewer places to worry about, the better. Jordan should get a reprieve from tests/procedures this weekend until we start prepping for the surgery on Sunday afternoon.
