On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

Chemotherapy Day #2

I talked with John tonight and Erin seems to be doing pretty well with her chemo so far.  She hasn't eaten much, but that is to be expected.  She and John had a good time working with an alphabet puzzle and some blocks going over the letters, their names and their sounds.  She has spent so many hours watching LeapFrog's Letter Factory that she could probably quote the entire movie.  On our last stay, one of our nurses mentioned that when she left our room she would have the Letter Factory songs stuck in her head all day.  We are thankful that Erin loves to sit and learn because she can't move, jump, and wiggle too much while she is tethered to the IV pole.

Erin was moved to a bigger room in the D Pod today.  She is now in room 4421.  It has a pullout couch and the room is slightly bigger than most of the other rooms.  It also has a fabulous view of the Salt Lake City valley.  We like rooms in the D Pod because there is less foot traffic so it's quieter and the view is much better than all the other rooms.
