Didn't we just do this?

Didn't we just do this?

Well, Abby's just finished up this months Decadron/Chemo pulse week. We started early, last Thursday night. She wasn't suppose to start this chemo pulse until Tuesday of this week, but they wanted to see her early and Thursday worked great because the Make a Wish Store party was on Thursday too. The Wish Store was pretty fun. Basically Abby got to go off, by herself, into a room and "buy" gifts with her wish dollars. They also had face painting, family photos, hot chocolate, Santa and Mrs. Claus... (what's her first name anyway?), and lots of fun crafts. Abby had a blast going shopping and I did too. It was a good way to make the trip that involved a spinal tap more fun!

And now it is over. It wasn't too bad this time, demanding but not too bad. It is nice to know what the overall tone of these weeks will be like. Abby wants to be held a lot and is generally tired and a bit moody. Also hungry of course and like to rest a lot instead of playing. But that is pretty good really, I'm glad that she tolerates it so well.

Other than that, not much has gone on around here... that is probably a good thing. I like it when it isn't so exciting/crazy around here... ahhh relaxation!

Merry Christmas... drink lots of egg nog for Abby since she can't have any this year.
