We are on the "possible" list for heading home tomorrow=) Her WBC is up to 1600 now and the doctor is hopeful that it will continue to improve. She continues to have body aches and a slight headache, which are both side effects of the medication that is supposed to be helping to increase her white blood cells. She is finding relief from these symptoms through Tylenol w/ codeine.

She met with representatives from the Make-A- Wish today and here are her wishes:

#1 meet the Jonas Brothers =)

in no particular order...go the Rachel Ray show in New York, a horse trailer with living quarters or a camper for the back of the truck (air conditioning for rodeoing), and she added a 4th wish to choose from and that was to get an all around rodeo horse.

Later this afternoon she received a call from Make-A-Wish asking her to elaborate on her Jonas Brothers wish. They asked why did she want to meet them, what she wanted them to know about her, and what she wanted to do with them. She said she wanted to "hang out" with them and go to their concert. Carlene had difficulty answering some of their questions and called the girls for their help...Alicia did not know the lady could hear her and was making her laugh with their silly conversation about marrying them. It was quite a hilarious few moments=) (especially when Alicia found out the rep was listening)


  1. LOL that is hiarious. I wish I could have been there for that conversation alone. Please please please promise me that you will video record her wish when it comes true. I really want to see her expression when it happens....ESPECIALLY IF IT'S THE JONAS BROTHERS!!!
    I am thrilled to hear she can possibly go home tomorrow. I will continue praying for her...seriously, I don't think I have prayed this much before.
    And a very Happy Birthday to you Dad.

  2. That is just too funny and precious at the same time! What a wonderful opportunity. I am sure Carlene, you will inspire and encourage the Jonas Bros as I am sure they will inspire and encourage you. Wouldn't it be neat if you all prayed together. What a special memory you will all make together!
