Phoebe is doing great! As expected, she needs a blood transfusion for low hemoglobin just as she does each time she has this particular round of chemo. Tomorrow morning I will take her in to Dallas to be transfused which usually takes about four hours, and then we should come home.
There has been a pretty joyous atmosphere around here lately. It feels so good to not have the next round of chemo looming ahead. I can’t believe that when her counts come back up they just get to keep going up, up, up! It will be such an incredible feeling to be able to take her out and about without worrying about her immune system.
She keeps telling everyone, “My hair’s gonna grow back!”…it’s the sweetest thing. She already has a little bit of peach fuzz and looks so sweet.
We had our meeting with the social worker to apply again for night help and we are still waiting to hear back about it. He was very encouraging and we feel very hopeful that we will be approved. I will continue to post updates and pictures as Phoebe recovers. You all have become so much a part of our journey through your prayers and encouragement these past 14 months that I can’t imagine not keeping you posted!
All our love and gratitude to you, Amey
