2 Down 3 to Go

I am proud to say that Julia and I have made it through her first two chemotherapy treatments as an inpatient at Children's in Minneapolis. Hopefully the sleep tonight is better, but overall I think things are going well. Julia has had the opportunity to meet some other kids who don't have any hair and seems to be learning that they're kids just like her and there's nothing all that weird about it. Plus, people keep commenting on her beautiful hats! The flashier the better from time to time! We talked again today about whether she would like to have her head shaved to speed up the process (and so that she wouldn't have to deal with hair all over everything). She seemed interested for a while but then decided it's kinda neat being able to pull out chunks of hair at a time and have it not even hurt. I took a picture of her doing that - not sure if it will do the scene justice though. I'll have Torey put some pictures on the blog when he comes to the hospital next, with his laptop. Have a wonderful evening with sweet dreams...

Hey Julia, I have 3 hats ready and want to make 2 more today. Hope they fit and you like them. Plan is to mail them Thursday. The hats will be nice for inside, but probably not warm enough for outside. The butterflies are cool. Love you, Grandma Beth

You are all dear to my heart. Having you at the Koch household for Christmas was pure JOY! Julia's and your family's abilities to deal with all of this is truly taking every ounce of strength. She's an amazing young lady and you are amazing parents.
All My Love,
Aunt Cheryl
