Well of coarse I ended up taking you to the ER last Thurs. You had a late nap and woke up fevered and screaming that your poor little ear and face hurt. At least I got you there at a decent hour this time. (about 5:30) After blood counts and cultures were taken they gave you some Tylenol. Finally you got some relief after a few hours of crying from the pain. I wish I could have given it to you sooner but the docs have to check you out first. I ordered your food while we waited and by the time it came you had a big appetite. That was reassuring. My awesome little girl... you passed up the fries, choc shake and cookies and ate the green beans, fruit and chicken cordon blue. I love that you like healthy food. Your counts came back great. TOO GREAT! I was freaking out. I thought there had been a mix up at the lab and if not, then what did it mean to have counts that high? They gave you Rosephin and fluids and I think we would have gotten out of there sooner but since I was freaking over counts... well I think that slowed things down. You played with the nurses and braved having your port de- accessed. The needle even sort of snagged on its way out, and you were awesome about it. Oh and accessing it when we got there was no fun. The numbing cream had worn off and the nurse had to re do it because the 1st needle wouldn't draw. Anyway, we were home by 11:30 pm and woke up the next morning to our regular routine. YAY! It must have just been an ear infection, because the fever fizzled out on Friday and never came back.
I'm a very happy and delightful person. I love spending time with my family. I am active and affectionate. I am strong and inspiring. I love all living things and I am easy to please. My mom thinks I am very easy to love. I bring joy, light, and love to our family. I am like a sweet sticky substance that bonds our family together. On July 6th, 2009 When I wss only 13 months old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I started Chemo Therapy the next day. I'm not going to lie.. it is nasty stuff, but it is saving my life. I am doing my best to not let it slow me down. I love life. I have a lot yet to experience and I am always reaching.
