Phoebe feels better each day that her counts come up. She has spent the day toddling around the house playing with the cat, kissing her dog, snuggling her brothers, laughing, dancing, singing “Ho-Ho-Ho-Hosanna, Ha-Ha-Ha-lelujah, He-He-He-He saved me and I’ve got the joy of the Lord!”
I keep thinking that this will be even more commonplace when chemo is over and she ALWAYS feels this good. I can hardly fathom life without chemo, but we are all really excited that it is coming so soon!
Phoebe will begin her last chemo treatment on the 26th. She will have intrathecal (spinal) chemo and it will be a tough round. And then we will leave the hospital and BE DONE! Ahhhhhhhhh!!
I wish she could understand that this is IT! I am so happy for my sweet girl, just knowing that life is about to be a lot more simple and enjoyable for her. Needless to say, there is a lot of excitement going on around here and we are beginning to dream again..and plan, and look to the future, and that feels good.
Last night we were blessed to have a dear lady from church come volunteer to spend the night with Phoebe so we could get some rest. Phoebe has never met a stranger, so she loved on Miss Linda just like she was family. Tomorrow we are meeting with a social worker about getting some night help. Please pray we are accepted this time and it goes through.
Thank you for all of your prayers and love,
