Day 157

Ella had clinic today. Today was the FASTEST we have ever been through clinic, especially considering she had a spinal and 3 chemos, plus she was scheduled to have 3 hours of hydration.  Ella's counts came back good, so they did her spinal.

Then, the staffed work really hard to get us the "heck out of Dodge!" They decided to train Steve to administer the chemo instead of keeping us at Loyola till Thursday. They had scheduled a nurse to come to the house, but she cancelled because of the weather. She was also scheduled to receive 3 hours of hydration, but they gave her 1 and had us hydrate her for the rest of the day. We were out of there by 2pm.

Can you believe after 3 chemos and a spinal, she is still awake right now and playing flashlights with her brother?  If you live in Chicago, you are probably doing the same thing we are right now- hunkered down in the house and praying that the electricity doesn't go out so you can keep the house heated! School has already been cancelled for tomorrow and Josh is so excited!  I am too. I love when we are all "trapped" in the house together.  Granted, if it is more than 24 hours we will probably be climbing the walls, but it is a great excuse to spend family time together.

I kinda see this as day 1 of the last 14 "hard" days of treatment. It's like a light at the end of the tunnel.

Stay warm and enjoy this time with your family.
