Awake and eating

Summer seems to snapped out of her sleepy land. She is still not as active as usual, but she is on her way I hope. Yesterday, at her appointment, her ANC was 100....almost bottomed out. Her platelets were still good at 210,000 and her hemoglobin was above 9 which is good too. Her white count was .3 (I think) which is normal when her counts drop.

She is eating spaghetti and chicken noodle broth today. She also had a powdered doughnut and half of a mini ice cream sandwich. Last night at my mom's house she ate a hot dog weenie. So, things are looking better in the eating department. As a matter of fact, she just told me she was hungry again. :) The funny thing is she only eats a little of whatever and then says she is full or her belly hurts. Oh well, I will take whatever I can get into her. She had lost 3 pounds as of yesterday, down to 29.2.

She is such a lovely girl. Well mannered and loving. She always says things like, "Mommy, I love you so much." Plus she is just a Mommy's girl right now and I am loving that.

She is beckoning me to help her pee and then fix her something to eat. I do love babying my little girl......
