Ella has now completed the infusion (putting poison into her IV) part of round 2. It finished this morning with a shot in the leg of one of the other chemo medications that she gets this round. So far, she has been feeling fine. I wouldn't say that she has seemed to be nauseous at all so far. ( I really hope that I am not jinxing her now. ) I am sure as this next week goes on, she will start to get more and more tired as her blood counts start to drop but that is to be expected and it really never got terribly bad last round. We will remain in the hospital while her counts drop and come back up to an acceptable level, just like last time. We were inpatient for a total of 27 days the first round so hopefully this round will be a little less since part of that was all of the stuff she dealt with those first few days.
Big sisters, Abbey and Emma came home Wednesday night and daddy brought them straight to the hospital to see Ella. I think they were all very happy to see each other. The next night Emma came with daddy for our switch off and Ella wouldn't stop giving her kisses and hugs. The next adventure for the big girls will be heading to Oregon on July 8th to spend a week with my cousin, Robin and my Aunt Judy and Uncle Denny. When I was a kid, I used to go up there during the summers and LOVED it. I think they will have a great time!! They really enjoyed being in TX and catching up with all their old friends. They have pretty much been lazy bums since they got back. I think that it what happens when you basically have 10 sleepovers in a row.
