No chemo again

We went to chemo on Monday and her levels were still too low. Her white cell count had gone up so we knew that her ANC had to have gone up too. It was only 700. It has to be 750 for her to get chemo. I am glad though b/c she will have another week to get her ANC up so that when she does get the chemo she wont go to 0.
It is so hard b/c she is supposed to get a spinal tap on the first day on the new road map. So every time that we have gone we can't feed her. I don't know about you but I would feel like absolute crap if I hadn't eaten all day and then had to get a needle in my spine. Her new road map is every 10 days so we wont have the same days like we had with the previous one.
Kayla seems to be doing fine. She woke up with a sore throat but I think that it is because she was snoring last night. She had some tea and a cough drop and she says that she feels fine.
As I type this she is doing her home and hospital school. James wants to do work too but his attention span is not so great right now. He wants to play drums with the pencils and pencil box. So I gave him a rake and he is outside raking leaves. :)
It has gotten a lot cooler which made me realize that I am not ready for the cold weather yet. Jimmy said that we are supposed to have a heat wave later this week, here's hoping.

So sorry to hear that your daughter (as well as family) is going through this. My dad started chemo last week. I can only imagine how hard this is on such a little girl.
