Emotions swirling


Even though Kayla has been off her steroids for almost a week she is still very agitated and hungry. Once she thinks of a food that sounds good she wants it NOW. She will whine and cry and whine and cry until she gets her way.
It is that exact reason that I am dreading chemo on Wed. She is scheduled to get a spinal tap on that day too and that means she can't eat. awesome.
She will be getting 4 hours of fluids before they even start the chemo. We call days like this "long chemo days."
Kayla has also been getting restless and wants to go to the store. She can't go though. Last week her ANC was under 750, which means that if we absolutely have to take her somewhere she has to wear a mask. She wants to go to the grocery store and go feed the ducks at the lake. For all we know her counts could have gone up but have a new mantra that I live by "better to be safe than sorry."
Sorry I haven't posted very much, there really hasn't been much to say.
She is sitting on the couch right now asking me when Daddy will be home with her funions.
:::sigh:::
