Today was a... hum... I don't know kind of day. Ashley woke so early 5 am. She went to bed around 10:30. Poor baby must be tired. She vomited today around 9 am. A lot of vomit. A lot of beef jerkey. She LOVES Tony's homemade beef jerkey. The vomit wasn't green. She's so tired today. Numerous naps. She is only awake in about 2-3 hour stretches. She has been nursing in 30 minute increments. I'm drained. Drained of milk, drained of energy, just drained. I'm sleeping well but I'm drained. We called the oncologist today and again, they're not concerned about the vomiting unless its green. Whitney has been a CHAMP at school. She goes all by herself now and doesn't need mommy or daddy there. This is a big help for us.
I don't want to feed Ashley anything but water, oyster crackers and breastmilk. This seems to help her keep her food down. She did eat some Hershey's chocolate this afternoon when Tony stoked up an outdoor fire in the firepit and Whitney made smores. Ashley wouldn't eat the graham cracker... she gave it to the dog. Ashley wouldn't eat the marshmellow... she gave it to the dog. Ashley ate the chocolate. HA! Too bad Musashi. No chocolate for you. It seems as if Ashley is keeping the chocolate down. She's asleep right now. I don't know when she'll wake or when she'll be down for the night. I'm just going with the flow. For those of you who know me... going with the flow is not my style. I like to have a plan. Tony seems to be doing okay today. We find it hard to hold back tears sometimes. I try not to let it get the best of me. Thats all for now from me. Thank you to all of you for your kind thoughts and help. Bob and Sally Nakata... your the best grandparents in the world! You make us food, you mow our lawn, you clean our kitchen, you're there in the middle of the night if we need you. We so appreciate you.
Crystal Thomas, - your help seems like a full time job. I don't know where you get the time and energy to coordinate so many things for us. Thanks so much.
