Monkeyin Around

Today did not go much more smoothly, but things gradually fell into place. Lily had her scans, and Phil arrived right after she was sedated to wait with me. Then I had an appointment so he was there with her when she woke up. It was a very rough wake up- and I've been there for most of them- they rarely go well. I guess there was much kicking and screaming involved. By the time I got back to the room, Phil and Lily were snuggling and recovering from the experience.

Before the scans, Lily painted and played with some of her favorite friends on the ward. They have reduced her cisplatin dose by half due to the hearing loss, so she will get to come home tomorrow.

  1. My Dearest Jen Jen, I often think that I should be able to give you words of wisdom. I remember going through the same decisions you are. How many of us have had to decide on life or death for our children? It should NEVER have to be a decision. Yet, some of us are stuck with it and we ponder whether we are doing the right thing. You and Phil are doing everything right. You are one of the strongest couples I know. You have so much love that it hurts and I am in awe. Maybe the legacy that we The Connolly's have passed on is one of hope and love. I hope so. Love , Mom (Grandma)
