Friday Update

Allison has had a great week.  She made it Tuesday and Wednesday full days at school.  Because of conferences there was no school on Thursday and Friday.  Yesterday she went to her friend Kenzie's birthday party for the day.  She enjoyed hanging our with kids and just having fun.  Although last night she was tired and pretty sore.  

Allison ran a low grade fever last night but that is the first fever she has had since the day of fevers on Monday!!  This is a big Wow. It is so nice because it allows her to do her life as normally as possible.  

Tonight will be her third dosage of Methotrexate.  This will be her first full dose.  Hopefully she will continue to be fine and not have any adverse reactions to the medication.  From what we hear it can take 6-7 weeks for it to kick in so it could still be awhile before we see any side effects.  

Just wanted to give a quick update.  Allison is resting up for the walk tomorrow.  We are all hoping and praying she will feel great in the morning and be able to participate with our team.  If you are on the team we will see you there bright and early.  If not Allison will post the results tomorrow after the race.
