Hospital Photos

So here are the pictures I promised! These are just of the hospital. Someday I'll be putting up pictures of Girls Camp and other summer activities. If you want to see the picture bigger just click on it.

In the fancy ambulance-transport chair - those things are amazing!

On the way to the ambulance!

Acting weird - I pretended I was having a serious problem where I couldn't breathe.

Here are the transport people putting me into the ambulance.

Being weird again - I was acting freaked out about being stuck in the ambulance :)

Here's the security guard from the ambulance story!

My backside looked like this a few days ago: the white patches are the lidoderm patches that contain lidocaine to numb the area and the gray circles are hooked up to the TENS machine that gives little electrical impulses that feel like a massage for a while.

Lounging around in a chair - I got sick of the gowns so I've been wearing sweats a lot.

Some of the young men in my ward came to visit. It was fun to see them all! Thanks for coming by you guys - it helped bring a smile to my day!

The cookies are delicious - a big thank you to Dad's company!

The cute flowers from the young women - thank you so much!

How I try to feel about getting the chemo... I REALLY feel about getting the chemo.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures! We'll have more to update you on tomorrow!
