One more day of chemo to go!

Summer is sleeping right now. She was having some crying fits so I got them to give her some Benadryl to help calm her. She is wearing a diaper which in itself is a little upsetting for her. But, it is necessary right now because she does not have complete control of her body. Earlier she woke up crying because she had wet herself, but she couldn't tell me that. She can't really verbalize her thoughts right now. I hate to see her like this, but a mom has to do what a mom has to do. I have to take care of my baby. I'll be so glad when Tuesday morning rolls around and this part of the nightmare is over.

When I got here this morning, she was so happy to see me. It was great to see her in such high spirits. She ate some Doritos and some lemon yogurt. She also had a little water to drink. I'll be surprised if she eats anything else today. I really just hope she sleeps it off so her body can rest and heal while the chemo is doing its thing.

I've been trying to decide what to do for her no more chemo party. I think I am leaning towards bowling. She said the other day she wanted to go sometime. That is what we did for girls night out last night and it was fun. We almost had them put the bumpers up. LOL Anyways, we will wait until her counts are back up and she is feeling good before we try to have it. No need to rush anything.

Keep your eyes open for pics sometime this week. I know everyone is anxious to see Leah (our new cat). :p She is here at the hospital with us. I just love electronic pets! Guess who is getting toy hamsters for Christmas. Yep, my little girl. Time to stock up on batteries!

Sorry to hear that she isn't feeling well but am glad to see that the chemo is finally coming to an end. Praying for a good week for you all.

I am so far behind in my reading. Being without a laptop is for the birds.

Hopefully by now you guys are snuggled in at home and Summer is feeling top notch.
