Knocked out

The day was pretty good up until about an hour and a half ago. Summer had been asleep pretty much since 11:30 a.m. Around 5:30, she started vomiting. She has done it twice more since then. :( So, they gave her Ativan. She is already on Benadryl and Zophran. Today, she got these two chemo drugs: Iphosmafide and Etopside. She gets those two Thursday and Friday too. They are the evil chemo drugs. Well, the evilest of the evil that she gets.

She had a visit from two of her friends today, Willow and Mason. They came this morning which was best because she was not really feeling the chemo at that time. I think she enjoyed the visit, as did I. My best friend from high school is Willow's mom and it was nice to see her too (along with her sister, Mason's mom). The last time we saw all of them was at Summer's birthday party. Hopefully, Summer will be up for a birthday party on Sunday for another one of her friends. She has already missed one of her friend's parties due to hospitalization.

I guess I'm gonna spend the evening playing Spider Solitaire and watching TV. Looks like my angel is gonna be zonked all night. I'm sure we will be up every few hours tonight to go pee. Last night the nurse helped me remember to make sure she went every few hours. It is a good thing too because I was too tired to get myself up. I hope the rest of the evening is uneventful, but just in case I've got the puke bags ready.

Here is a link to a video from the Princess Alexa Foundation. Summer is the clown about two and a half minutes into the video. She and I both enjoyed watching it. Of course, it brought tears to my eyes......

I hope she feels better.

Praying that Summer feels better tomorrow. The video is so sad. It is hard to see that many children going though something so bad.

Poor little sweetheart. I hate to hear when she is feeling icky from her meds. How much longer will she be on chemo?

I just watched the video. So touching. Makes my heart ache to know what Summer and so many children are going though. And yet, look at their beautiful smiles. Such joy in the midst of such pain.
