Quick Update!

We got a call from the clinic today to let us know the schedule for all the testing at the end of this month. Labs-8/13, 8/16, 8/23. MIBG Scan on 8/21, 8/22, 8/23. MRI and bone marrow biopsy 8/31. We go for labs on 9/5 and to meet w/the Oncologists to discuss results and to talk about what to do or not to do next. We will get the results of the scans before 9/5, so we will post them as soon as we can.

Click the link to the right for James Runde and read his families latest post or copy and paste this link in your browser http://www.babiesonline.com/journal/journal_view.asp?be=o/our_boy. As you all pray for Madelyn and my family, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pray for the Runde family and especially for James. Pray that his pain is minimal and that he fights and beats this disease. Neuroblastoma truly is a beast!!!

Thank you all and we love you!

8th and Final Round of Chemo is done!!!

Whooohoo!!! We finished our 8th round of chemo yesterday and it went very well. Madelyn didn't get sick or anything. It is almost like she knew that this was it. We made it through the long day at the clinic and now we wait. We will begin testing the end of this month and we will decide then where we go next, if anywhere. We are doing counts Mon. and Thurs. next week and the week after. Please pray that her counts stay up and that we make it through this final round w/no illness or hospital stays.

I took the girls this morning for their pictures. This was the first ones we have had done professionally with the two of them. They are adorable together. I'll post more later.

Keep on praying!!

We love you all,
The Bell Family
