8.25.16 :: Home Stretch

So this little bundle of sass just left for the hospital. And just as sassy as she returned home two short days ago, she heads back just the same.

I’m trying to process the different emotions happening right now.

It was such a shortlived amount of time, but so well worth the quality time to be around her, enjoy her, and experience her living a “normal” two-year-old’s day. She was HOME.

And here we are now in the home stretch. She goes back tonight to start the second half of this round. It should last just a few days. What’s stressful will be the possible side effects.

Last weekend’s chemo round was supposed to last only a few days. But it was a tough one. After a series of fevers and side effects, at one point she hit 104.9.  She was nauseous and vomiting. She had no appetite. It took her a little longer to rebound. I was worried for her. It took her a few more days than usual, but eventually she regained her appetite and the fevers went away.

I never want to get ahead of myself, so let’s continue to take it one step at a time. But I won’t lie. Saying goodbye to her tonight was tougher than usual.

I will just continue to pray for her complete healing. I pray that she will be protected through this last round and that she will sail right on through recovery.

We’re. Almost. There.

It had been 30 days since she stepped out of the hospital and onto this curb. She came home for such a short time, but she was ready to go!

Some QT spent living the life of a normal 2 year old.
