Update - 8/29

Overall, today was a rather uneventful day. Campbell remembered last night that we had promised her to a trip to Toys R Us while she was in the ER last Thursday getting her initial IV. (Who said she is not going to remember anything?) So, off we went to Toys R Us this afternoon. We stopped on the way and got her a new haircut since we had to cut the knot that was in her hair after the surgery out and then took her out to lunch at her favorite place (Panera Bread, of course...odd child...)

She had a visit from her "Aunt Genene & Uncle Mike" this morning and we were all happy to see her acting like herself again.

We are still trying to get used to how quickly she crashes but we are learning just like she is and are starting to get it.

We had a bit of a scare this evening with another episode of her vomiting. It is very scary for all of us to not know exactly who or when to call when she is sick. We gave in and called the pediatrician who returned the page about 2 minutes after we called. His wife is also one of the Pediatric Oncologists that will be treating Cam. Needless to say, we could not be happier with the care that Dr Porter and Dr Fritz have provided Campbell. They truly care about her and we would not trade them for the world (If you are looking for a recommendation for a local pediatrician, Basking Ridge Pediatrics is my vote). Luckily, it does not look like anything to be concerned with at this time. Again, we will continue to watch it and hope that it stays a non-event.

Our outing tomorrow morning will be to church. More than ever, we are feeling truly grateful- for our family and friends , for Cam's health, and for the doctors who have brought us this far.

Please continue to pray for Campbell - that the news next week come back positive and that she has a speedy and complete recovery.


  1. Hmmm..and some brain surgery causes memory loss?? HA! Oh and I too love those Panera Pumpkin Muffies...yum. She has good taste!

  2. Will happily keep the prayer chain going.

  3. Sorry, we have not been able to add our thoughts and prayers to this site while we awere on vacation last week, but please know that many many payers have been and still are being offered for Campbell, and for the whole family. Wish we lived closer so we could help out a little. It is very heart-warming to see all of the local support just pouring out for you guys.

    May God continue to Bless Campbell and provide her with improving health and getting back to her normal self. May God also Bless her family and provide the care-giving strength and support to nurse Campbell back to her normal self.

    Lots of Love and Hugs to Campbell, along with Caitlin and Caroline and Robin and Greg.
