Cycle 6, Day 2

She is sleeping peacefully beside me as she finishes up her chemo for the day. When I started to eat lunch (spaghetti) about an hour ago, she threw up. So I guess the sight of it made her nauseous.

Last night she weighed 33.4 pounds which was up from about 32.5 the day before and 31.9 the day before that. That is awesome! She hasn't eaten anything but a few bites of yogurt today. She also had about 6 or 7 ounces of orange juice, about half of that came back up. I doubt she will be up for eating anything else today. More than likely she will sleep the rest of the day, but maybe not. My aunt is coming to give me a break in a bit and I hope she brings a book. I kind of feel bad leaving her here with Summer just sleeping, but I do need to get out of this room for a little while.

Earlier, she was hoping to go out and ride the tricycle after her chemo was finished for the day. Now I'll be surprised if she gets on it at all today. She was on that thing a lot yesterday. She can go really fast now and you can't drag your feet when you follow her pushing the IV pole.

Please pray she rests peacefully and doesn't empty her stomach anymore today. She's such a trooper and is so blessed to have so many praying for her. Thank you all!

Sleeping is probably the best thing she could be doing right now...

I hope she's feeling better today.
