Happy Thanksgiving...

The Johnson family has alot to be thankful for, how about you?

We are all together here in New York. We will be heading down to a private viewing of the Macy's Day Parade. We will be in an office building that has a great view and will be serving breakfast for us. Later the are having a feast at the RMH. Last night we rode the Police bus down to where they have all the balloons ready to go for today's parade. The public was aloud down one side of the street and they had the other side blocked off. It was used as a private viewing area. It was crowded but not nearly as bad as the public side of the street. They really make the kids feel special when we are here in New York. The Ronald McDonald House staff and volunteers are great.

Yesterday Cody had no pain again. We will go in Friday for the last treatment of this cycle and then head home Saturday. He will have his blood drawn for the HAMA test in two weeks. We hope and pray it is not positive. You never know.

Thanks for reading and don't eat too much Turkey..... :)

From our family to yours Happy Thanksgiving! I am glad that you had a good time last night and I am sure that the kids will really enjoy the private viewing of the parade.
I am also glad that you all got to be together today.
We remain hopeful for no HAMA.
Take care,

Happy Thanksgiving from MOM Johnson
Sure sounds like you are all going to have a fun filled holiday.At least you and Diane don't have to
cook but I know you all would rather be home. I don't have to cook either.My brother Bob asked me to eat with him and his family.
Two weeks will seem like forever
but we all pray it will be GOOD news. Have a safe trip home....

Mickey, Diane, Justin, Daniela and Cody,
Have a wonderful wonderful Thanksgiving day in my city! I'm so glad you got to see the balloons up close last night and will see the parade today. It's such a nice start to the day. Watch out for my favorite - Clifford the Big Red Dog! I didn't see him in last year's parade and think he was taking an SRD (scheduled rest day). ;-)

Glad you're all together and having a great time together!

Happy thanksgiving to you all, Mick. Last year, my wish was that we'd be toasting Cody's good health. I'll have that wish again. And am thankful he has responded so well to treatment. I'll pray he hasn't gone HAMA...can't remember how many more of these treatment cycles he has...

Continued prayers for a No HAMA result.
