Round 2

Well I am back in the hospital and waiting for chemo to start.  I am a little dehydrated and waiting for that to be taken care of. I guesss all that running around with my my sister and brothers, tea parties, and jumping on the bed wore me out these last few days.  I had fun though!!

Yesterday we celebrated Father's Day together as a family! We thought celebrating early would be good and that way we could all be together.  God has blessed me with the BEST dad!! He loves me so much and I love him too.  The things he does for me.  He has let me paint his nails and even wore a tiara.

Please keep me in your prayers.

Another Praise!

I went to clinic yesterday and my immune numbers are climbing and above what they need to be for chemo.  Yeah!!!  They have tripled since Monday.  Isn't that great?  I am so thankful.    Not only do I have a wonderful God that loves me and lots of people praying for me, but my numbers are even better than they wanted for me to do chemo.  They also said that my weight is to my advantage... how did they put it... because I started out a ...little heavier and I have lost a few pounds that it is good.   My taste buds are changing, so what I think I want..may not taste very good.  I used to like strawberry milk but right now I like chocolate milk, hot chocolate and little sausages.  They say that it is good sign that I am eating and walking and even running.  I have enjoyed serveral tea parties a day. 

I am on schedule with my chemo which is good.  They say they really want to start out strong because there will be times that they have to delay chemo for some reason whether my counts are not right, or a fever, etc.  Wouldn't that be cool if God miraculously kept me on my chemo schedule the entire time.   Imagine what those doctors would say.  Let God get the glory.  Well I know that God is the Ultimate Physician and is in complete control.

When I go in for chemo on Saturday, it will be for 3-4 days.  Please pray for me.  Pray that there will be no adverse reaction to the chemo.  Also, please pray there will be no damage for my heart, liver and kidney, and for the cancer to be destroyed.  Please pray for my family too!

Thankfully another day at home!

I am home again! Yeah!  I have fun playing with my brothers and sister. Chloe and I had a tea party today.  I am feeling much better.  I  have been wanting my mom to hold me alot since this all started, but today I have feeling better and spunkier.  I did not even take a nap yesterday, just rest times.

I go to clinic tomorrow for a checkup. Hopefully my immune system is still improving!

Gotta run...

Fun day at home!

Oops forgot to write about my day!! I had a fun day today at home with my family.  I slept in since I did not have nurses coming in checking on me.  I watched Underdog with my sister in mommy's bed.  I was even caught jumping on the bed.  Oops-I guess I am feeling better.  It was good being home.. back in mommy and daddy's bed!!  Tonight when daddy came home we had some good family time!

Thank you Lord for letting me feel better and getting my numbers to go up!

Praise God!!

Praise God... I get to go home!
Wow-My counts are going up!  Thank you God and thank you for your prayers! My counts went from 90 to 350 overnight!!   Let God get the glory!! I am so happy. They unhooked my IV and I thought that was great!! Freedom to walk around, but getting to go home is even better! 

I will still need my numbers to go up so I can be ready for chemo, but look what God has done already!  I am enjoying having my brother, Aleks here.  He and mommy are going to start packing up so when the dr signs my release papers we can go!

Someone asked if I could eat anything I want.  Well I can especially when I take chemo.  They are just happy if I eat or drink anything.   Mommy and daddy want me to start eating better and healthier than I have been.  That is part of the reason they want to get me home.  Yes I do like popcorn... but only the "good" kind, "not the bad kind."  I am not sure if I like carmel popcorn.  I have not had it.   My taste buds are changing!!

Well keep praying - and don't forget to Praise His Name!!

Another Good Day

God is so good to me.  I woke up happy and hungry today!!  I was excited to see my breakfast for a change.  I am ready for new day and hopefully, Lord willing, will be able to go home today.  We are waiting to see what the doctors say.  My platelet levels have doubled!!!  Yeah!!!  Of course, they would like for them to keep getting higher!!  We are also waiting to see what my immune system/ANC is.  Please pray that my immune system numbers will start shooting up so I can be ready for my next chemo!! God is able.

My brother Aleks was able to spend the night with me and mommy! See we find a way to be together, even if it is in the hospital!!

Getting Stronger

Hello everyone. I am having another good day! Me and daddy are hanging out right now!  I have played and rested!  Thank you Lord for my making my levels go up!  He is so good to me.  If they keep going up maybe I can go home Monday or Tuesday.  Wouldn't that be great??  Mommy and Chloe stayed with me last night.  We had a girls' night!  I am hoping my brothers can stay with me tonight!

I know there are so many of you praying for me and my family, I just want to thank everyone for your prayers.
