Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves and blown here and there ... Eph 4:14
We are indeed becoming stronger because of what we are seeing. I realized today on our way into the clinic for another blood draw that we would never become better people if our battle with cancer was an easy one. If this went too smoothly, we would l never be "in the fire" and change from the experience.
Endure the pain, or stay the same....
So, Evie had a good day. We are still keeping up on the morphine so she continues to drink from her bottles and eat. She seems to want to do more baby food again than adult food. I think the textures are hard for her to swallow due to the soreness of her throat from the chemo. But she ate her dinner well tonight and after her bath was ready for bed.
Her hemoglobin was on the increase, so she did not require a blood transfusion today.
She was hilarious at the hospital...the minute the elevator door opened and she saw people she started waving...she never really stopped until I put her in the car to come home.
Tomorrow she and I will hopefully enjoy a relaxing day at home, then Thursday she has chemo and Friday an eye doctor appointment. I'll have to call the eye clinic ahead of time and see if we can bypass the waiting room since she will be susceptible to germs.
Take care, everyone!
Sometimes it's just really good to look back and to see how far you've come...Love, Tammie, Jeff and Evie (who cut a new tooth today! that makes 9!)
