Day 2 is looking good

Summer is having an awesome day!!! She has been eating and playing since around 5:00 a.m. this morning. Well, that is what time she got up. Thankfully she was happy to watch cartoons in bed so I could get a little more rest. That lasted an hour or so then she wanted to watch a Blues Clues DVD. So, I got the laptop out and put it in. It made me appreciate Barney even more. Even though we watch a lot of Barney, he does not annoy me as much as Blues Clues. He is always teaching something positive and probably educational. But, looking around and seeing paw prints???? Not for me. Bring on the Barney! At least I can sing with Barney. Summer is starting to sing more and more. She was listening to her Ipod the other day (Yes, she has an Ipod, cancer too so....) and she was singing. She stopped to tell me, "Mommy, I know all these songs!" It was cute, as is listening to her sing. She is just so precious. I could go on and on.

She emptied her stomach twice today. Same as yesterday. But, afterwards she was ready to play again. Around 10:00 this morning, she told me she was really hungry but couldn't eat. So, I suggested a Popsicle. She thought that sounded good and called the nurses station to ask for an orange one. She ate almost the whole thing. The last bite fell off the floor and the preacher pitched it in the trash for us. Then her belly hurt, so she got in my lap. Then she was cured. LOL. I must have a magic touch. I get that from my mom. She definitely has that touch even now. Of course, most kids are comforted by their parent's touch. It is just so awesome to experience it even though it doesn't always work. I definitely feel like I am getting a little attached to Summer myself. :) I guess there are worse things in life.

We should be getting out tomorrow. Chemo should be finished midday and hopefully they will get us out of there shortly after that. This trip has been pretty good for her. I can't complain, unless you want to hear about small rooms again. I did manage to snag an electric bed the other day too. The room next to ours had one and it was empty. God is always there in the darkness shining a little light to help lift me up. Sometimes I just have to look for it.

I'm SO GLAD to hear she's doing so well!

What a little trouper she is.

Here's hoping for an early discharge tomorrow. :)

Our boy has an iPod too. He doesn't know how to work it. Yet. We have oodles of movies and music. No schlepping extra stuff. And we like Barney...but his favorite is the little red monster. You know--ELMO!!

Momma's always have the magic touch!
