Is it really Friday already?

Well, it looks like we will probably be going home today, but my baby is having a cousins sleepover at Memaw's house tonight so we will not be getting her back. For those of you who don't know, my hubby also has kidney cancer (diagnosed in 2007) and received his first treatment (besides surgery) this week at Vanderbilt. Things have been going okay, but he feels like complete crap and the mere fact that he is allowing me to type while he lays in the hospital bed beside me is a miracle. They stopped his treatment after 6 doses (supposed to get 14) because of his liver and kidney function. His platelets are also low, and he received a transfusion last night. If they remain steady or increase, we will be getting the heck out of dodge today. I am looking out the window as I type, watching snowflakes fall to the ground. It is so pretty and I almost hate to leave before the world turns wintry white and beautiful. But, we don't want to get snowed in here and not be able to see our precious little angel tomorrow.

She has had a great week. Nanny took her to get some crafts earlier this week which she really enjoyed. Then yesterday, she spent the day with my aunt Leisa and did even more crafts. She even got to go to the video store and pick out a movie which is a first for her (we have Netflix at home). Last night, I was a little down and called my mom. Summer surprised me by wanting to talk to me. So, I had to regain my composure and talk to her. What a sweet voice she has. "Where are you? Where is Daddy? I love you!" It made my day because usually when I call, she is too caught up in playing to really want to talk to me. I sure do miss her and can't wait to give her a big hug and a million kisses when I see her again.
