I'm running out of good titles... another appt.

Just got home from rescueing Anna from a potentially germ infested house of our freind who was watching her while Abby was at the clinic. Seems like Anna is a germ magnent! She could stay inside our super clean house, in isolation from all sick kids and the like and it seems like the first time that we go out or she plays with another kid... boom!... She gets sick. I guess we'll see this time.

I left early from work after getting a call from Tiffany who had just got a call from our freind who was watching Anna telling her that her little boy was throwing up. I sure hope Anna doesn't get it because it seems like when one person gets a stomach bug the whole family gets it and boy I really don't want to have to watch Abby get anything else if we can avoid it. But it happens and if it does no big deal, we'll deal with it. Abby's counts are up so at least we wouldn't have to take her down to the hospital.

On that note, Abby is doing good still. She's still a bit cross-eyed but that's ok, I can deal with my cute cross-eyed little cancer patient until it clears up in a month or two. Until then we still need to patch it for a couple hours a day but she does fine with it so far. I'm going to get her the pirate get up and we can pretend that we are on a ship sailing the 7 seas! ARRRR ye scurvey Dawg!!! I just really wanted an excuse to type that:)

As for her appointment today, it sounds like things went well. Abby's a bit tired and when she is like that she can change into a very, well lets say "spirited" little girl... ok so she get a bit, no not a bit... really nuts sometimes and out of control, screaming and all. Not a fun experience but it has happen both yesterday and today, hopefully whatever is waking her up at night will stop waking her up and she can get some good sleep. Better yet, since her counts are up, ANC =900 today, we can give her Ibuprofen to take the aches and pains that she may be having away! Yippee! Pray that that will help, her cute smile can only go so far, you know?

She also got her PEG shots, (one in each thigh) her Vincristine (the one that gives her the aches and pains and muscle weakness too), and she had a lumbar puncture (spinal tap with chemo). So lots today in the office but at least she is off the Ara-C and 6-MP (oral med) for a week... that will be nice.

That's my quick or not so quick update. buh byeeee
