What a great week! Ally and the rest of our family had such a fun time this week. The weather was great, a little hot but still a nice week.
Ally had some labs drawn on Wednesday and then we got her results on Thursday. Two of her liver function levels came down and one has gone up. The docs aren't sure what that means because typically the all go in the same direction. So, tomorrow we are off to duPont for a visit, and more lab work. Ally looks fantastic though, so we are hoping for good results tomorrow.
On Friday we took the girls to fun days in Boyertown. Ashley had a good time with her cousin Katie on the rides. Ally didn't go on any rides but she had fun just being out and people watching. On Saturday we took the girls to the family fun day at Galeotti Family Chiropractic Center in Oaks. This event was a free admission event, but any donations made will go to Ally's recovery fund. It was a little too hot for Ally, but she had fun hanging out inside the office. Ashley had fun outside in the moon bounce. If anyone is looking for a chiropractor or some massage therapy, Chris and Wanda Galeotti are some of the nicest and most generous people I have ever met.
Later Saturday, it was home for naps in the afternoon and then Ashleys' babysitters and Ally's nurse arrived. Shane and I were off to have a night of fun at the beef and beer. We had a great time and as always we were amazed at the amount of people that came out to support Ally. It was so nice to see so many friends and family that we don't get to see that often any more.
Sunday we spent the morning outside playing and then in the afternoon we headed to Grandmom and Pop's for a picinic and some swimming. This was Ally's first trip to the pool. Needless to say she wasn't to wild about the water but she did okay for her first time.
We just wanted to thank everyone that organized and helped with the Beef and Beer event, I would have to say it was a huge success. Also a special thanks to Chris and Wanda Galeotti for the family fun day. The winning ticket for the Florida trip was drawn Saturday at the beef and beer and the winners were Bill and Miriam Spaide, congratulations! Thank you to everyone who bought tickets, this was a great fundraiser. Also a huge thank you to Aud and Larry Eddinger for making this trip possible by donating the one week stay. Finally thank you to Judy Hunter of Hunter HR solutions and Bill Hunter of Affirmative Funding for donating $400 used towards airfare for this trip.
Shane will try to update tomorrow night so we can let you all know about Ally's lab work. Also we have new pictures!
Thanks to everyone for all the support and prayers. For those of you that don't know we have a link off of our website for John Maicher. He is a friend of ours who was also waiting for a liver transplant. John and his family have been having some very difficult times lately so please keep them in you prayers.
Take care, Jill
