They are not too miserable but since Iza's fever has been coming and going Since Monday night I have kept her home, Magi is stuffy and sneezy, Mimi on the other hand has been the healthiest of them all. She has been reading books to Iza and Magi, playing Uno, Go Fish, writing notes. So learning is still happening even though they are not in school.
They are getting a vacation before their school vacation.

In the morning she seemed fine and then fever came back again, 102.9, came down with Tylenol but as soon it was wearing off fever was back. She spent the day taking cat naps, seeing some friends, making crafts. Her blood counts were not terribly low so that was not a concern. At some point in the morning she had a flu swab, a tiny q-tip in the nose, she was not a fan. Results showed she in face did have the flu so we had the option to stay another night or go home with a box of Tamiflu. Mimi chose home sweet home!
Her chemo is on hold, so for now we will just do the Tamiflu and Tylenol as needed for fever. Spinal Tap has been rescheduled. Also no school, which is really hard for Iza because "that is NOT fair!"
Magi had a lovely date day with Daddy she keeps telling me she wants to go on dates all the time, I am not sure if Dan knows what he started... She went to the mall, got her hair trimmed, picked out valentine gifts for everyone and also had lunch.

We will be shopping this week and filling a box of arts and crafts supplies, birthday candles, stickers and whatever else the girls think of. If anyone else would like to contribute to our Wish List box for Camp Sunshine let us know :)
What the girls DON'T know yet is that the week of Winter Vacation they WILL be going to Camp Sunshine for the winter session. I have not told them yet so far I have been able to keep it a secret. I can't wait to see their faces when they find out. They have been asking to go back almost daily, they wished it while they blew out their birthday candles and even asked Santa!

We have been quite busy, reason why had no time to update. We have all enjoyed the snow, yes I said WE ALL. I think I like it more this year because I am not watching it from the hospital windows like we were last year. So fat this year we took full advantage of the cold New England outdoors as well as the the craft closet indoors.
Last week Mimi has a clinic visit for counts, on the worst snow day, we figured if the awesome nurses can get there so can we! Clinic went well Mimi's counts did not change much since last time ANC was 1400. She is still on 50% of her dosage of her daily Mercaptopurine. We go back on the 15th for a spinal tap, I did not tell Mimi yet since last time she spent two weeks looking at the calendar being upset about it. We will just focus on Valentine's Day for now!
Our Snow Happenings in Pictures...
Sledding!!! Magi's first time and she loved every second, she is a dare devil just like her sisters.
Iza and I walked out to the fresh deep snow and made a giant heart path.
This is a hawk. Something we usually don't see outside of out kitchen window. We watched him have his lunch this day it was pretty amazing, although it was "just a bird eating a bird" to the three year olds.
