But today Beth and Elle went out for breakfast at a local Saco eatery called The Golden Rooster. It's awesome for many reasons, one of which is that they serve breakfast all day. Elle wanted pancakes. She got one. Enjoy!

There was one upside to Elle going to the hospital...the reintroduction of the ages-old game of Fishy-Whip! (Yes, the exclamation point is mandatory.) I believe it was first played by the Vikings in the Sixth Century and then permeated throughout Europe before being lost to memory during the Black Death 600 years later. But now, here it is recreated for you by Beth and Elle. These are Beth's pictures and comments below. It is, by all accounts, a rollicking good game and much better than Shin Whacking or Catch the Greased Weasel. Enjoy!

On the upside, the delay meant Elle could go to her first dance class of the season. Following are two post-practice photos. Keep Elle in your prayers and thoughts tomorrow. She's tough as nails...but every bit helps.

These are from this morning. Elle has to get another ECG (a standard procedure) to make sure that the chemo isn't affecting her heart. Some of the meds can play with the heart if they aren't flushed promptly and properly from the system. Which is why it's great Elle has the two lines; she can get her chemo and flush at the same time.
The photos are courtesy of Beth, who has the toughest job in the world right now; wrangling a bored Elle.
