Resting Peacefully

Summer is down for the count. She had a really good and playful morning. She woke up to the usual belly ache. But, she ate some bread that her daddy brought her from Outback last night and drank about 4 oz. of water. So that was awesome!!! Then we played and laughed and played some more. Her daddy brought her some dried strawberries from his cereal bowl which she gobbled up as soon as she got them. It is so good to see her eating today.


Chemo started around 9:30 a.m. this morning. She didn't get tired and snuggly until about 10:45 a.m. She wanted me to hold her, so I took her in my lap and she fell asleep. Then I put her in the bed and had a snack. Now a little me time. :) My mom is actually taking off half a day today to give me a break. So, I am going to go home and shower since it has been two days. I know, gross. Then I am going to meet my hubby for some lunch. Not sure what I'll do after that, but hopefully I do something for me instead of needlessly rushing back to the hospital. It is crazy how that works. I am usually ready for the break, but when I get home I feel the need to hurry back and be with my baby. Funny how that works.


Yesterday was not too bad. She didn't eat anything until just before bedtime when I asked her if she wanted some popcorn. She said yes, so I ran down to the parent kitchen and popped some. She ate some and had a little water so that was a nice way to end a mostly sleepy and foodless day.

Well, major breakdown!!!!!!!!! Gotta go........

It's so hard because you want to be there for them but it's SO exhausting and you need at least a little break. I hope she gets through this one okay and her appetite comes back sufficiently.

My son has eaten a lot of yogurt and rice today. I think he knows that he needs it, because he is on those horrible antibiotics.

Glad to see that she is eating. Hope you got to enjoy your time away. It is nice just to get aaway sometimes even if it isn't for very long.

Sounds like overall, things are going pretty well.

I sincerely hope that continues to be the case.

Big hugs!!

Hope you got in that shower. I'm no where near as busy as you and I often don't get a shower each day. LOL. Hope she eats better soon.

First, oh! She is so gorgeous!! Those eyes and that smile!

Glad your mom is able to help. I can't imagine the stress that must be involved in the processes and emotions...

Crossing my fingers for her. Hope she has many more good days and that the chemo does what it's supposed to do!
