Slow and Steady wins the race! Would you rather be the rabbit that races out and poops out or be the turtle that perseveres and wins the race. I vote for being a turbbit, a combination of both, and maybe that's what Maggie is, a turbbitt :)

After a fantastic weekend full of miraculous healing and energy, Maggie was pooped! Sleeping past 7:30 in a hospital is awesome!

Here's mom's report

May have gotten a little too excited too fast. Maggie's hemoglobin and platelets both tanked overnight and she will get a transfusion of each today. Her neutrophils are still 200 today but they say that it can take a little while especially because of the severe mouth sores she had..her white counts are going to try to heal those areas before they get too comfy in her bone marrow. Not bad news at all just shows we still have a ways to go and that is ok. Slow and steady wins the race:)

We as Team Maggie just need to do what we've been doing! Praying, sending photos and making donations if you're so inclined. Maggie has been seeing the pictures along with the entire world, and photos continue to come in.

Please keep praying. Prayers do work! They’ve made those little white cells grow, and those white blood cells are what’s making Maggie feel so good. The change in 3 days has been nothing short of miraculous!  Pray for a peaceful Sunday night and week ahead. Pray for a sense of calmness for Maggie, Lauren and the entire Rudnicki family. Pray that those white blood cells continue to grow, and grow quickly!  Pray for healing, pray for strength!

You can make a donation to help defray the medical and travel costs associated with Maggie’s care. Maggie has been down in Boston for 3 weeks. I know there are family going down this weekend to help Lauren and Maggie, but let’s face it, gas is expensive. If you want to make a donation, click HERE for the details

We now have over 100 photos of Team Maggie support up on the site. If you want to send your picture, you can upload it HERE or just click HERE to view them all. Please note, if you do upload them, they don’t appear instantly, as we are moderating all pictures, just to insure appropriate content. You can also send me your pictures directly at

More later. Keep the faith Team Maggie!
