From Elizabeth Garner

I just spoke to Maddy. She continues to be down, but her
voice sounded a little stronger than yesterday.

She received the results of the bone-marrow biopsy; the
cancer has gone from 100 percent to 25 percent. While
this sounds like good news to me, she had been hoping it
would be zero, and she is depressed that it isn't.

They are scheduled to start her second round of chemo--
with the stronger stuff--today. This is done in her room,
and she has the numbing cream sent from Canada to help.

I told her Emily is doing well, and that we are working on
an Emily-Maddy visit in the hospital parking lot. I'm
confident that would do wonders for both of them.

100% to 25% sounds like improvement to me, too.

Maddy always was a perfectionist.
