Friday was another bloodwork appointment. We go in for bloodwork appointments every Tuesday and Friday. Her counts are dropping and her white blood counts are pretty low. This means she's susceptible to any type infection. We need to keep her away from people and any germs. Her red counts and platelets are low also. She'll probably need a transfusion sometime this next week. I guess transfusions are common during chemo. We had the doc's give her more IV fluids on Friday. We just wanted to be safe for the weekend and not need to stress about bringing her to the ER if she got dehydrated.
I think we have our little girl back. She hasn't vomited since Friday. Its now Sunday and she's been running around the house trying to dance. She seems to think if she rolls up onto her tiptoes that she's jumping. Her diapers are averaging about 20-25 oz a day and she has been motivated to eat solids for the first time in weeks. Mac & Cheese and popcorn are favorites. And she wants to drink water. We try to give her juice but this kid just wants water.
Its nice to be home. Things are beginning to feel a little more normal. I was able to clean house yesterday and Tony put up a new shower rod and curtain in the girls bathroom. Tony and Whitney even went to Costco yesterday. - April
