Round two officially ended with Lexe coming home on Tuesday.  It is great to have her home.   Our wonderful friends once again greeted Lexe with some cool signage.  It sure is nice to know that this unexpected journey is 50% complete.

Lexe will be home for 10-14 days depending on how fast her counts recover.  Until then it will be a steady diet of home cooking and a comfortable bed.

The KSL SportsBeat Saturday segment aired last Saturday and we feel that they did a great job. Jeremiah Jensen provided me with the following link to the story:

We have received many comments from people, suffering from a variety of difficult illnesses and situations, who have been buoyed up by Lexe's positive outlook.  It is a blessing to all of us that Lexe has chosen to fight cancer with such an amazing attitude.  She is mature beyond her years.  We all hope that the media exposure that Lexe's story is receiving continues to help others and focuses attention to the fact that many people are battling cancer, especially leukemia.

We stumbled across this great picture of Lexe receiving her high school diploma from Alta High School Principal Fidel Montero.  The whole event was so rushed we were never really able to take a good picture.  This one really captures the moment.

Thanks again to all of our support group.  We know we can't do this without you all.

  1. Lexe,
    I am so happy to see that you made it through round 2. You are definetly a fighter. I just went up to the hospital this morning to get blood work done for a living donor transplant for my brother. I hope I can be a match for him and be able to donate . It would really be a blessing . I love your attitude Lexe and your willing to kick this.
    Love, Marilyn Bodily
