Chemo Round 1: Day 22: A light at the end of the tunnel

Well last nights lab results got me down but overall they still look pretty good so we are very thankful for that. I had let my thoughts wander to what we’d do when we got home and made a few plans which I shouldn’t have done until I was certain we would be going home.… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 22: A light at the end of the tunnel

Chemo Round 1: Day 21

Wow! We’ve been here 21 days now… that’s the longest I’ve ever been away from my family! It’s amazing to think about how we’ve grown and what we’ve learned in just the past three weeks. This is making us stronger as a family and as individuals. This experience is teaching us so much about how… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 21

Chemo Round 1: Day 20: Counts Are Climbing

It’s 10:00 and we’ve had quite a busy morning already with OT coming by a little bit ago. They were pretty impressed with her progress since last week and she loves showing off. It was a good distraction for her while she was hooked up to the IV as well. At the rate she is… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 20: Counts Are Climbing

Chemo Round 1: Day 19: The Numbers Keep Climbing

It’s almost midnight and I just realized I haven’t updated for the day. I’ve been busy with a lot of other things today and just didn’t get around to doing it.

Chemo Round 1: Day 16: Bath Day

May 22, 2021 Little girl is sleeping in this morning… it’s past 7:00 and she hasn’t woke up since 3:00. She seems to prefer sleeping on her belly now and she’s so cute the way she rolls her head from side to side. Equally cute is the way she keeps Slothie snuggled up next to… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 16: Bath Day

Chemo Round 1: Day 14

May 20, 2021 Wow… it’s hard to believe that we are only two weeks into this. I guess I should look at it as we are two weeks closer to being home but this whole process is overwhelming and exhausting. I’m so thankful I’ve been able to be here for our baby girl though. She’s… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 14

Chemo Round 1: Day 13: Transfusion #3

May 19, 2021 It’s almost 4:00 am and it’s been another restless night. She’s had a fever all night and has now started throwing up too. We both just got an outfit change… I guess it was a good thing I had sent our clothes home to be washed. We are waiting for the next… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 13: Transfusion #3
