Bumpy start

Yesterday was a bumpy day. We went back and forth around the hospital getting ready for chemo . Lily got accessed, we waited for lab results, got upstairs, had to head back down for her echo which turned into an hour and a half wait. Of course by the time it all settled down and chemo started, it was 5. We played in the playroom awhile, but lily was ready for bed by 8. At this point they wanted me to go to admissions and sign the same waivers we sign every time, mind you she had been up on the ward all day... I tried to sleep, but we had the machine from hell that felt compelled to beep every 20 minutes. Lily managed to sleep through the racket and even slept through a morning puke session. Of course she woke up mad because we were moving her and not allowing her to sleep in chemo laced vomit, we're so mean that way. She watched the hospital's 30 minute informational program on breastfeeding, and after a million questions finally let me change the channel. Apparently we are squeezing in check up scans today*said sarcastically as today's treatment won't start til 4 PM. We don't expect to see anything, protocol requires the scans. Right now lily needs some snuggles so I must go!

  1. The wonder of it all--breastfeeding and life. Amazing that a 4-year old can focus on one thing for 30 minutes--great attention span. Always in our prayers--Love, Grandma Allen
