All she does is sleep!

I think the new nick name for Lisa should be "sleeping beauty"! This session of chemo ends tonight at 10:30 and pretty much the only side affect Lisa has had from it is, she sleeps! The doctors said that sometimes this is the side affect, but it is definitely not the most common one. Gail said that she has been awake for about a total of 20 min. since this started a day and a half ago. They definitely feel God's hand on Lisa right now.

They expect to be home on Monday, and if all goes really well it may be as early as tomorrow sometime. Lisa will be home for 2 weeks, and I have even heard mention of her going to school some, I am sure they will see how everything goes to determine that. During this two weeks they will have to make a few trips back to Portland for check ups and some blood work to monitor her progress. Lisa will check back into Deornbecher on Feb. 18th for another 4 nights of chemo. This is supposed to be some real strong stuff, so your prayers could be that Lisa's body will tolerate it well again. The sched. after that is; back again on Feb. 25th for 4 nights, and again on March 4th for 3 nights.

We will continue to let you know how Lisa is doing through this blog. When Lisa gets home I hope that she will add to it herself! There are a few fund raisers in the works so watch for that as well. Thanks for all the love and encouragement given to the Harders.



  1. Lisa...Let us know if you are up for visitors when you get home...Sequoia would love to come hang out with you. I am so happy that the chemo treatment went well. You are such a strong girl.

  2. Hi Lisa,
    I'm so glad your weekend went so well. You go girl (HOPE). :)


  3. I got to spend some time with Lisa Lu Lu this weekend!! What a special young lady that she is....and VERY tough I might add. She is handling the treatment very well, and as of this afternoon she still had not gotten sick to her tummy if you know what I mean. We are praying for you constantly Lu. We love you! Kyle & Jamie B.

    P.S. Don't forget about the next fundraiser Thursday February 5th @ Hawthorne Pietro's Pizza. From 4-9pm mention Lisa's name and they will donate a portion of the sale to her!!! Thanks.

  4. Hi Lisa,
