Yesterday, Ella finally started walking EVERYWHERE!! It was as if she finally got up the guts to start trusting herself. It simply amazes me how just like that she went from mostly crawling with the occasional walk thrown in to walking almost constantly.
You may notice on a few of her closeups that he hair is REALLY thinning now. She lost quite a few big clumps this last week and now I can no longer do her signature water spout pony tail. We have regressed back to just sticking a bow in her hair but let me tell you, it is literally hanging on by a thread!!
She seems to be feeling great but we have to be very careful with exposing her to anyone because in the last few days, her ANC count has dropped to almost zero, something that usually we would still be in the hospital for. This round is definitely alot different from the previous rounds as her platelets and hemoglobin are still looking great. Just another day in the life of the medical mysteries of a child with Ds!!!
