She's a camper!

Last night, Summer camped out with Memaw and Nanny in a camper on their property. They had a campfire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. It sounded like they had a really good time when I called and talked to Summer this morning. She asked me if I would go camping with them sometime. :) I think they might go canoeing today.

Yesterday was her Muga scan. We do not have the results yet, but should get them on Tuesday when we go in for cycle #7. I am curious to find out the state her heart is in, but worried at the same time. I'm not sure how comfortable I'm going to feel with her getting the Doxyrubicin even if they think her heart is strong enough for it. I just don't want to see her suffer any more than she already is. I will just put it all in God's hand though because He is in control anyway. Her port is not getting a good blood return thanks to a nurse who didn't use the right heparin before she deaccessed her. They tried putting something in it yesterday to unclog it, but it didn't work. I think they will try again on Tuesday. I really hope they do not have to replace it and so far they are not talking about it, but they do have to get blood out of it so if it doesn't start working.....

I can't wait to get back to her tomorrow. I sure do miss my little girl!!! Three nights away is plenty right now although a week on a tropical island does sound pretty tempting.

Ports are just screwy. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. A new access will probably be fine especially if she got TPA to open it up.

Aww I hope they can get it fixed up. It's so scary to think that one nurse's mistake can cause a problem like that, thank goodness it wasn't something more serious.

I'm so happy to hear she had fun camping! Have a great weekend.

Hi Summer Sounds like you had a wonderful time camping out !! I am so thankful you are enjoying yourself. I pray the problems with your port will be solved and you will not have to have it removed. Please know that I am thinking about you and keeping you close in prayer. Hugs and Blessings

We spent the weekend camping too. It was fun. We even made smores.

Hopefully that port will start working soon. :(

Keep us updated on her scan results, please.

XOXO

I pray that her port will clear up so you don't have to worry about her getting a new one.
