Lily Lou celebrated yet another rebirth day (number 8): together with 3 friends she first had a sleep over and next spent the day in her favourite Dutch amusement park de Efteling. Lily Lou is doing great, attending school, playing field hockey and enjoying life! Last month she spent a week in Lenox, MA, our old home town, visiting friends and making plans to possibly attend Lenox Memorial Middle and High School after she turns 16. Lots of big plans!
Today was Lily Lou’s 7th bone marrow Bday, and we feel lucky! Lily Lou is still going strong, attending school, playing field hockey and enjoying life! Next month we will return to Orlando with Lily Lou, her best friend Mirthe and her little sister Roosje, almost 8 years after our Make-a-wish adventure, to celebrate once more her second chance at life!
Today we celebrated Lily Lou’s 6th bone marrow Bday! We had a really big Bday cake and went shopping. Lily Lou is still going strong!
Lily Lou celebrated her 5th bone marrow Bday on April 1st! She handed out delicious cupcake gifts and “kanjerketting” wristbands (in support of a charity for children with cancer) to her classmates. Lily Lou is still doing great!
Lily Lou celebrated her 4th bone marrow Bday on April 1st, exactly 4 years after her new bone marrow started working. Together with her best friend Mirthe and oma Bos we enjoyed chocolate cake, and went shopping. Life is good these days!
Lily Lou celebrated her 10th birthday on our favorite island in the North of The Netherlands, together with her family, friends and her grandmother Oma Bos. It was a memorable day with lots of Harry Potter birthday cake, great gifts, a trip to the pool and dinner at her favorite Pirate restaurant.
On the medical front no news, next week Lily Lou will have another check-up but she is feeling fine, with lots of energy. School started earlier this week, as did field hockey practice and she is actually enjoying both!
It has been a while, but no news is usually good news. Lily Lou celebrated her 3rd rebirthday (March 18) a little bit late this year, since her grandfather (opa Kees) sadly passed away on March 16. On April 1, the day her new bone marrow started working 3 years ago, we celebrated that we are so happy that her bone marrow is still doing a great job, and thusfar all doctor’s vistis are uneventful. Lily Lou is living a great active life without restrictions and to the fullest!
The turkey has been ordered: we are getting ready for the holiday season! Next week we will celebrate Thanksgiving with our family, one week later Sinterklaas will visit all Dutch kids with gifts, and the week after we will decorate our Xmas tree. Lily Lou is doing fine, and her recent check-ups were uneventful. She is very much looking forward to the holiday season and has urged me to make another jibjab Xmas video:
