Day 143 & 144

Ella doing Homework
Ella had a better day today. Monday night she didn't sleep. No really, she sat in our bed, asking for food and watching the Disney Channel till 4am -then Steve took over. Tuesday night she slept, so today she was in a good mood and asked to do homework for almost 2 hours today. So, side effects for her have been insomnia, cravings, bloating, mood swings, hair loss and leg weakness. Really, not too bad. Except for the hair loss, it is kinda like she is already a teenage girl!
We spent a good part of the night last night making these cute colorful head scarves for Ella. Josh even designed one for her. We pulled out glitter, glue and jewels and went to town.  It was our last night with grandma and grandpa so we hung out and got crafty! So looks like Ella and I will be wearing these for the foreseeable future. She isn't so much into hats right now, so this is a good option.

Next week will be one of the toughest for Ella. She has a long day of procedures on Tuesday and then a nurse will be coming to the house Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to give her chemo. Tuesday she has a spinal with chemo, then a new chemo that requires a 3 hour flush of IV fluids. Plus they warned us that there is a good chance that she will need a blood transfusion, which also requires a couple of hours to make sure she doesn't have a reaction. How much can her little body handle?

Please pray that her body holds up, but the Leukemia doesn't!
