Moving over the hump

We are officially half way through the week! Of course the kids had no school on Monday and I was off of work so we tried to make a day out of it. Eden and I got up early and headed to clinic for labs and quick peek for Dr. Yeager and to get her meds for the week. All of her Counts are doing fine. WBC=4.7, Hem=11.6, Platelets=175 with an over all ANC of 2300. Dr. Yeager was happy to hear about all of the energy she has and she had gained a little weight.

After leaving clinic we went to the house and grabbed Riley and Andy and headed to Dave and Busters for lunch and a warm afternoon playing games. The kids loving going there and always have a blast. They ended up with about 1800 tickets that we talked them into saving for next time so they could get something really great.

By the time we got home it was coming on 5:00 so the we decided if we were going to hit the hill for a little sledding we better get to it and CeCe joined us. I have never laughed so hard as I did watching Riley and Eden going down that hill. Eden was all bundled up in her snow gear so she looked like a big pink puff and she would put her sled at the top of the hill and take 10 or 15 steps back and run at the sled and jump on it. The funny part was half the time she didn't get all the way on it and it would go for a few feet and then she would just kinda roll off of the sled and just lay there because with all the stuff she had on it was hard for her to move.

All in all it was a great day!

Monday night she start her Chemo back up (which of course she was not happy about all of the additional pills and liquids) But in the end she got them all down. About 1:30 in the Morning she started throwing up so we got her all cleaned up and her bed chanced and she fell right back to sleep and has been fine every since. We have Zofran to give her at our discretion but we try to hold off until we know she is going to need it because we don't want to put anything more in her body then absolutely necessary. After that night we have been doing the Zofran as a part of her normal routine and will continue through out this cycle.

I am so glad to hear that you had such a nice Monday together and that you were all able to have so much fun! The good counts are excellent news and I hope Eden continues to feel well on this round of chemo after Monday night.

As always, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for sharing the news!

So glad to hear things are going pretty well and that her counts remain fine. I can imagine Eden all bundled up as a pink puff kinda like the pictures blow, too cute! She should teach me how to sled, that's whenever I finally get to see snow in person! Although of course she'd rather not take all these pills I just pray they're doing their job in her little body. Fry NB cells, fry! I hope she continues doing well on this round of chemo and that side effects stay far away. Stay Strong!
