We ran away. No really, we did. :) We're in Hilton Head for a few days with Grandma and Grandpa. Tracy has some work to do all day Monday in the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area and Julia Grace and I are hanging out at my mom and dad's house.

We have several things we're going to go do today - I think Julia Grace will have lots of fun. I wish Mallory could have made the trip with us, but it's not her weekend to be here. I really hate that she can't be here with us - I'm hoping maybe she can make it down with us in November or that maybe her mom will let her come over in 2 weeks when my parents are in town. Yeah I know. We'll wait and see.

Update on mom: she's feeling some better (I'll try to post a few pics of her this evening if I can get her in any with Julia Grace today). She finishes radiation on Tuesday - 15 treatments flew by! They will do some more scans in 6 weeks to see how well it worked. I never knew it, but radiation keeps on working for 6 weeks following your last days of going to receive treatment. She says her neck is still sore and hurts but maybe not as much. She said her hips feel a WHOLE lot better and that's where the bone lesions are. So we'll see. She is hoping that they will start chemotherapy on October 20 - not sure of the start date for that yet, but it will be 18 weeks long. She did get accepted to the clinical trial so this is a plus.

I'll keep you posted but for now we're getting ready to go have a fun afternoon! See ya!
