Lexe has really enjoyed her time at home.  Everything feels so normal.  However, all good things must come to an end.  This coming Wednesday Lexe is scheduled for both a bone marrow aspirate and a spinal tap.  This will be outpatient surgery and Lexe will return home after the two procedures.  She will be readmitted to the hospital on Friday morning for the start of chemo...round three.  Chemo will be given for only five days, unfortunately, the strength of the chemo will increase ten fold!!  At this point Lexe's attitude is lets get to the hospital so we can get this over with.

During this break from the hospital Lexe has turned to golf for exercise.  Lexe and Laurie have taken a lesson and spent time on the driving range.  Lexe has developed a very good golf swing.

Last week lexe received a package in the mail from Amy Rodriguez, a forward on the USA Women's National Team.  Amy wrote Lexe a really cool letter and included a shirt signed by the entire Women's National Team.  The team played a final warm up match against Canada in Salt Lake City on June 30th
and then departed to London for the olympic games.  Really awesome of Amy to take an interest in Lexe.

Overall things are going well.  Lexe is positive and happy.  Life is good!!
