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!

Elle got out of the hospital on Friday and is doing well in her post-chemo recovery. She had one bout of vomiting (or as Elle said "I did the barf.") but her Zofran seems to have kicked in and hasn't done that since Friday evening. She has a slight foot-drop issue with her left foot, a side-effect of the chemo meds. But she tends to somehow make that go away in a few days. She attended dance class this morning and by all accounts did just great. The one thing I have noticed is that she gets a little more tired the first day or two after she finishes the chemo. Now, though, that has vanished as well and she is running Beth and me ragged...again.
