Chemo Round 2: Day 7

The past few days have been exhausting as Shyanne has been pretty fussy. She does have some good moments but she’s been wanting to be held A LOT! Her ANC is down to 319 which explains a lot of this. She’s not feeling well and just doesn’t know why. All she knows is that she… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 7

Chemo Round 2: Day 6?

The days are starting to blur together now. I’m thoroughly exhausted already as little miss doesn’t want to sleep in her bed and there is no ‘co-sleeping’ allowed so I can’t put her on the pullout with me. We end up sitting in the chair with my feet propped up and my neck pillow while… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 6?

Chemo Round 2: Day 5: Lots of Labs

I know everyone has seen the paper balloons that you can write your name on in return for a donation. Those are for the Children’s Medical Network and I… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 5: Lots of Labs

Bringing her back to the hospital really makes me anxious as I’m constantly wondering if I’ve overlooked any important signs or if she might spike a fever while… Continue reading Bone Marrow Biopsy #2

Sorry… this had published last night but something wonky happened at the link wasn’t working… We’ve been home for a couple of days and enjoying our time here. It just seems to be going by so fast and I feel like I’m moving so slow. Shyanne however has been working on her sitting skills and… Continue reading Clinic Visit

Chemo Round 1: Day 24: Going Home

So it’s been hard not to say anything yesterday but I didn’t want to jinx anything. Things have been up in the air a bit because of her numbers going up and down. Then there was an issue of whether we could get her meds filled as they needed a prior authorization… so much suspense!

Chemo Round 1: Day 23

It’s been busy for being the weekend. I did sleep in until almost 7:00 as I stayed up last night making a Caring Bridge Page for Shyanne. I really like the site as it has many wonderful features. We can keep a lot of links in one spot to make them easier to find. They… Continue reading Chemo Round 1: Day 23
