Tuesday April 3rd- Clinic
She was happy that her favorite Doc was back and she knew she would be getting an Easter Basket today. Today Josh came to clinic with us. I think as more time passes, and I let him know that Ella won't be going to school because she has chemo, that he thinks she is off having fun and going to Build A Bear, and not so much the getting chemo part. So, this time he asked if he could come. He was actually really good about being there for her, he colored princess pages with her and snuggled with her in her chemo chair. He also asked Carrie a lot of questions and hid his eyes when it was time for her port to be accessed. I think she wanted him to see how brave she is because she barely flinched and didn't cry at all when they inserted the needle. She was very brave. Her counts were good, but her temperature was a bit elevated at 99.3. You wouldn't know that now because she is outside as I am typing yelling "lala, lalala" over and over again while running around the yard.
Ella is already counting down the days till her birthday. She is requesting a Barbie Fashion Show Birthday with nails, makeup and hair. I am so excited to celebrate with her.
