Time to catch up!

Hey everyone, it's been a few days since we have updated the blog so figured it was time to get everyone current on what's going on with Moo Moo's treatments.  There hasn't been much change other than the fact that she is in her 4th week and the treatments are really wearing her down.  There are days when she really has to reach deep down to find the will to go to these appointments.  But, like the amazing individual she has proven to be, Macey finds a way to get herself focused and pushes forward.  Her good attitude and continued love and support from friends and family are key in what gives her such strength.  She only has a few more radiation treatments left and she will then begin the "boost" portion of treatment which generally focuses the radiation more directly on the tumor itself.  The other treatments do this as well but are expanded to treat areas outside of the site just to be sure there isn't any residual growth.  Macey is more than halfway through her treatments so that is good.  She will get a one month reprieve coming up and won't have to do chemo or radiation.  After the month break, she will do just the chemo for another month.  This is ok because she handles the chemo much better than she does the radiation. 

Macey had a nice little visit from Tyler and Blake Welling last week and it was so great to see such dynamic, charismatic, sharp young men stop by to bring her flowers and some amazing fruit sorbet.  For you girls who don't know who Tyler is you can check out this link and see him on the red carpet.  He appeared in High School Musical 3 and is living in Los Angeles pursuing a career in acting.  This clip shows him with Ashley Tisdale and then posing in a group photo op.  Macey was awe-struck to say the least and really likes him.    Link to Tyler Welling.  And as Macey's Dad I wanted to thank both Tyler and Blake for taking the time to come visit her.  I know she was supposed to go on a date with you all and just wasn't feeling very good that day but the fact that you still came by and brought the flowers and gave her a rain check was very noble and caring of you.  And you other guys reading this blog, take note.. Chivalry is not dead, as proven by these two young men.  So from Macey and all of us, thank you!

Wednesday was a good day too for Macey.  We hired a great masseuse by the name of Paul Kekacks to come to our home, set up his table and give Macey the full treatment.  She had a look on her face like she was laying on a table sent straight from shangri-la.  She really enjoyed this and had never had a massage until now.  She is sold.  She wants them all the time now.  We figured she has been through so much lately it was time for her to get something that was relaxing, that left her feeling wonderful.  Paul accomplished this and we want to also thank him.  We'll be calling you soon.  So be ready!  :)

Well my Sister Lori, Macey's aunt arrived from Alabama yesterday with my nephew Michael.  It was so great to see them both and it made Macey cry.  Macey loves family so much and when she got to see her, and it was long overdue, she broke down.  They both look great as usual and Michael has sprouted like a weed and is taller than his Mom now.  We all sat around and visited and I had Michael play on the four wheeler for a bit and we finished the night playing 21 with my 8 year old Kylah.  These two, even though minors should visit Vegas soon.  They both are amazing card players.  They both ended up money ahead and did very well understanding the concept of the game.

Well it's Friday and Macey has her last treatment for the week and gets the weekend off.  So we plan on laying low, taking it easy and enjoying the beautiful summer-like weather we're having in the fall.  We might even take the boat out tomorrow.  It depends on how Macey is feeling.  Until then, we'll update you all with more later.  Continue your support and please keep Macey in your thoughts and prayers.  We love you all!
