Maggie's garden project

Not exactly the garden we had imagined...but it was a creative way to learn the different types of science lab tools!

Monica had an appointment with her new oncologist specialist this morning. She wants to run more tests for 2 reasons: 1) they want to be sure they have it identified correctly as a metastases of the kidney rather than primary lung cancer because the chemo protocol would be different, and 2) they want to do more scans to be sure it isn't anywhere else. This will delay the beginning of chemo treatments, but the doctor has assured her that while this is frustrating, nothing is really going to change between now and when she'll get started. As for guidelines, healthy eating is in order. She also said to keep her strength up, which does not mean sitting around inactive. She gave her permission to do the things that make her happy, so expect to see Monica around! Monica is overwhelmed by the fact that so many people have already signed up on the care calendar for meals in less than 24 hours! Wow...thank you! The best of all is notes and prayers, these will help sustain them through this fight. That's about it for now, friends. _ Jennifer
