Chemo Round 3: Day 14

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 months since we learned that our baby girl would be in for yet another battle… I prayed so hard for it to be a mistake but it wasn’t.

Chemo Round 3: Day 5: No More Chemo!

All I can say is Thank God that today was a better day and Thank You all for your continued prayers! Shyanne has had no fevers today and she has eaten much better than any other day since we’ve been here and that makes me feel so much better. We also got our food tray… Continue reading Chemo Round 3: Day 5: No More Chemo!

Chemo Round 3: Day 3

Last night was pretty rough and today wasn’t much better. Shyanne’s fever has kept coming back and has been as high as 39.7… we’ve been using Tylenol, cold compresses, and ice packs to keep her temperature down. As soon as I think it’s better it come back again so its kept us pretty busy today.

It feels like it has been forever since we’ve been here and it was… Continue reading Chemo Round 3: Day 1

Chemo Round 2: Day 27

They did get her set up on a continuous drip of morphine but we just had to get it… Continue reading Chemo Round 2: Day 27

Chemo Round 2: Day 15: Bath Day

Last night was another sleeping in the chair night. Thankfully the new seat cushion and the neck pillow have made it a little bit more comfortable. Shyanne ate pretty good at breakfast and lunch. At dinner she was really picky and would only eat her banana pudding. I’m hoping her appetite picks up tomorrow.
