That is Clint's new nickname for Summer. I am not sure she will go for it since yesterday her name was Mogo Noodle. She just laughed when I asked her if her new nickname was Chemo-sabe. So, I guess we are sticking with Mogo. I don't know where she came up with that nickname, but she really seems to like it.
She started her chemo less than an hour ago. So far she is still playing and acting like her usual self. She has eaten really good today. So far 10 bites of pancakes, 7 pretzels, 20-25 cheetos, 2 peanut butter crackers and some sushi rolls. She also drank about half of a chocolate milk. Last night the Dr. said he is concerned about her weight. When she started this journey she weighed about 33.5 lbs. Now she is just above 30 pounds. She has been eating good since the chemo stopped, but now we are on another round and the nauseating drug is being pumped into her as I type. He says they might put a feeding tube in her if she loses much more weight. Exactly how much, I am not sure. But, that is not something I am looking forward to. Pray that she will be able to keep enough food down to keep this from happening because it would be at least one more surgery. I talked to another mom this morning who has 20 year old who is also under treatment in the children's hospital that has had 3 surgeries for his feeding tube so far. Yikes!!!
My sister came up this morning to give a chance to run to the gym and then home to take a shower. I also cut my hubby's hair which was a first for me. I didn't do too bad. I did better than a
Supercuts hairstylist did on one of our friend's hair the other day. It was WAY crooked. I only had two gaps that don't really look too bad. Maybe in a few days I'll cut it again but go shorter this time. He said he likes it a little shorter anyway. Anyways, the cut looks better than I expected it would and he is NOT going to the hair salon today.
Summer got a few packages in the mail from her chemo angels. I haven't gotten them out of the bag yet, but I did bring them in case she needs some cheering up later. I gotta go. Someone wants me to hold them. :)
