Homeward Bound

I hope! Summer is getting platelets as I type. They were only 19,000 this morning so I guess I'm glad we didn't go home yesterday because then she wouldn't be getting these platelets she needs. Her white blood count is up to .8. Still pretty low, but it is rising. Maybe we will be off the shots come Monday. The Dr. gave us the clear to book a quick trip to Florida so I did that yesterday. Now we just need the ANC to get up to a safe level and we will be in good shape. I am sure we will go to the clinic first of next week for another check so we can be sure she doesn't need any platelets or blood before we leave. Woo-hoo! I can't believe we are actually getting to go. I am probably more excited than Summer, but I'm sure she will love it. We are staying at Splash which has an indoor water park for kids so that is perfect since chemo patients should not be sun worshippers. Does anyone have a fast forward button because I am ready to leave? I'm sure it will be here before we know it anyway. I hope Summer is feeling more like her playful self by then. After the chemo is out of her system for a few weeks, she is usually back to normal. I just love that word. Normal. LOL Here are some pics from the past month. I hope you will enjoy them.

Playing dress up






















Acting silly while helping Mommy make popcorn







I just love these sunglasses!
They will have to be packed for the beach!!!












Summer enjoyed the fair at the mall...





....especially the swings.









But, her favorite was something similar to the tilt a whirl. She loved going around and around and around.




Making thank you cards for her angels.










One of my old Jazzercise friends made her a cupcake hat.










Wearing her Curious George mask we made at the Discovery Museum.











Playing with her cousins is always fun for her!
