|Garage sign that greeted Lexe at home|
Last night Lexe joined her Avalanche "94" teammates at a soccer game in Utah County. Lexe was one popular girl. She had to wear her mask but that didn't seem to bother her at all. She was greeted by teammates, college coaches, and a host of others. Despite the cold night, it was great to see her enjoying a soccer game.

Many people have asked us how the rest of our children are doing. Mackenzie, our oldest, continues to go to school at BYU Idaho. Mackenzie wanted to leave school and come home after Lexe was diagnosed but we really wanted her to stay in school. Last week she was accepted into the nursing program which strengthened her resolve to continue her studies. She wants to be closer to Lexe during this tough time and travels down to SLC every few weeks to spend the weekends. Mackenzie spent several nights with Lexe while she was in the hospital. We have encouraged Mackenzie to stay in school and study hard. The twins, Colby and Hadlee, have also done well. They have not had much parent time but are very mature children and with the help of our friends continue to attend all of their scheduled activities. They are independent mature children and we are grateful that they have been able to understand this tough situation and adapt.
The folks at Primary Children's Hospital called today and they have schedule Lexe for an echocardiogram and a bone marrow biopsy to take place next Wednesday. This biopsy will show if any leukemia cells exist in the marrow. VERY IMPORTANT BIOPSY!!! They would like to start the 2nd round of chemo June 1st, however, Lexe's high school graduation is June 5th and we need to decide if Lexe will attended. If Lexe attends graduation we may delay chemo until after the ceremony.
Thank you again to all those who continue to support our family
