Piano Concerto

I thought some of Ally's Army might like a little video performance by Ally on her piano. She had asked for years to try it. We started lessons back in September. She has been a quick learner, as she had no experience at all. Her teacher is really wonderful. She goes to the Piano Preparatory School. Ally's Mom is unable to help, but would also like to take lessons at some point. Anyway, I thought some of the family would like a short concert (and also to see her ever-growing-longer-and curlier hair). The piano was actually my Mom and Dad's piano (but they didn't play either) but I feel very blessed to now have it in my home.

We are heading to the clinic tomorrow for chemo. We should be there almost all day with her IVIG infusion and antibiotic infusion also scheduled. Her stomach is a bit better but still hurt pretty much all month. We will discuss with Dr B. Her cough is better thanks to Dr Matt and good old amoxicilian.

  1. A beautiful concert from a beautiful curly-haired doll. Ally you looked so pretty when you turned and smiled. I never had the chance to learn to play any musical instrument when I was a little girl and you did so good for starting in September! Keep up the good work and glad you are feeling better. I pray for you every night that you will be well and strong. Grandma of 4 in Ohio

  5. Fantastic!!!!!!!! Seriously, great. So elegant, and I'm not trying to be cheesy. I love her hair. Curls are the coolest (even if they don't seem like it when you're a teenager). I'm really hoping your day today went as quickly and as well as possible. thanks for posting.

  12. My favorite is the great big smile at the end!

    Have a good day tomorrow. I hope all of her symptoms from winter crud go away. It's always so hard to tell what's what when chemo is involved. Always thinking of you and praying!
