Hey y’all! Hope everyone is doing well on this President’s Day. The Guishard household is currently going through some disinfecting as Kevin, Ellie, and I deal with a nasty cold. Poor Kev came home feeling ill last Wednesday and we both been feeling cruddy since then. Ellie has been battling a cough for over a week and just can’t seem to get past it. However, we all feel a little bit better and today has been the closest to normal we’ve been. By the grace of God Ava and Kohen have shown no signs of catching our cooties.
As usual my mom has been the true MVP of the week. She’s taken care of Kevin and me as well as the kids. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m sure when she moved in with us she never imagined she’d be back to raising kids at the age of 60. Yet here she is taking kids to practice, basketball games, mass, lunch and anything else we ask of her. She does all this and somehow manages to make sure the adults are fed and taken care of. So grateful to have her.
Ava’s been feeling great and growing so strong. On Saturday Kev took Ellie to the pediatrician to get checked out. When they returned Ellie told me that she weighed 72 lbs. It amazes me that just a few months ago Ava weighed two pounds more than Ellie does. The transformation she’s gone through is a true miracle. Add to it that there’s a good chance she’ll be in school in a couple weeks and I’m just in awe of God and the power of prayer.
This week is a big one for us. On Thursday Kohen turns 12. How that’s possible I’m still not sure. Also on Thursday Ava goes into clinic for her next study labs to see how well her CAR-T cells are doing. We’d love your prayers and continued well wishes that our girl’s CAR-T cells are strong and keeping the B cells and leukemia away.
