In our room....

at the hospital. Yep, yesterday she started running her usual fever since her counts are bottomed out (101.5 at its highest). So last night around 9:30 we arrived at our home away from home. They started her on an antibiotic a few hours later and then gave her blood since her hemoglobin was below 7.

She is doing pretty good today. My cousin is in from Iowa, and she came by to visit. Summer mentioned that she wanted some Fudge Rounds and Krystals so my cousin went out to fetch them for her. It was nice to see her and her hubby. We do love visitors when we are here!!!

Hopefully, we will be out Sunday or Monday. Then we are going to try to head to the beach before her next chemo cycle. WOO-HOO!!!!! Summer has actually been asking to go to the beach so I am sure there is sand castle building in our future. We'll just have to make sure to do it early in the morning because she is not one to stay out in the hot weather. She's not a sun lover like her mommy......yet. :)

No fun...hope she bounces back soon and that fever comes back down.

Sometimes having low hemoglobin makes people hungry! Tell her to take advantage and eat whatever she'd like.

Poor little Summer. :(

But YAY for the beach! Sounds like just what the doctor ordered.

Sounds like a lot of fun, the beach. Hope she is up to it.

I am praying for you guys to be able to leave the hospital soon and that Summer remains fever free! Remember if you need anything, I am free all next week! The only thing I have planned, it work of course. .. .
