One more night

I just found out that we got a good nurse for our last night in the hospital. :) Then I saw the "bad" nurse walk by. It made me shudder thinking we could've got her. LOL

Summer got blood today since her hemoglobin was just above 7. Her platelets were down to 40,000 so there is a possibility she will be getting some tomorrow before we go home. Probably so if they are around 20,000. If so, I hope they get an early start on that. We have been invited to a private party at the zoo tomorrow night, and I want Summer and myself to get a good nap before that.

They never came up with any reason for Summer's fever so I guess I'll just chalk it up to being part of the process. Hopefully, the end of the process. She is still on shots which she has been fighting me a little on. We are almost through though. Maybe another week or so of them.

There have been 3 more pediatric cancer diagnosis' this week at the hospital. It is so crazy and sad to see "new people" in the oncology section of the floor. My heart feels for them and I want to comfort them. Cancer is such a bummer. Why, oh why, does it have to exist in this world? God please take it away! Just as we are finishing our journey, so many others are just starting theirs. Heartbreaking.

I guess I'm going to snuggle up to Summer and finish watching Barney with her. I am hoping she will want to watch "The Tigger Movie" after it ends, but I think she might be ready for bed. She told me she was before we started the Barney movie.

Thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts. I don't know how we woul'dve gotten through the past 8 months without them. Oh yeah, scans are on November 16, 18 & 20th. NED here we come!

Yay for the good nurse..boooo for the bad nurse! lol

Praying for Summer to be feeling much better quickly and have a fun time at the zoo party! Very neat!

I'm so glad Summer is starting down a new road, one I pray will be of good health and normalcy (well, with alot of fun thrown in)! I do pray for all those little ones who are struggling through this disease. I hope they can look to Summer, such a little fighter, as a role model and that beating the beast that is cancer is possible. And I believe Summer will be a grand example of that!
