We have had a wonderful week with Phoebe at home! I don’t know how to explain the change I see in her, other than she seems more herself. Her eyes are brighter and she has more energy and it seems like she’s getting her sleep cycle back to normal. In so many ways I can tell she’s feeling better and stronger. Here’s what we’ve been working on this week:
I am SO proud of her! Life has felt semi-normal this week and honestly, I needed a break from blogging all the details. It was nice to simply live the moments and have nothing extraordinary to report, other than “she’s doing great!”. Tuesday marks the beginning of the next round of chemo. This will be our first time doing chemo as out-patient. We will go to the oncology clinic each morning, get a quick chemo “push” through her port and then get sent home with chemotherapy to put through her ng tube. After the week of chemotherapy is complete, she will be home for FOUR WEEKS! This is good, because it means more home time, but the downside is that she is off for four weeks because this particular round of chemo will knock her counts down for longer.
Thank you all for praying for our girl, she is doing so well and we are feeling so blessed.
