Blood and Bruises

April 15, 2011

Titles are the best part of blogging. Reminds me of highschool journalism class.  Headlines and blog titles… they are interchangeable. Get their attention.

We’ve got the steroid devil living with us again.  Those little pills make such a fuss in our family.  Thursday morning Isa woke up with a bloody nose, a sure sign of her platelets going low again.  She had MTX, VCR and DEX on Wednesday.  So no surprise that she went from good to all chemo kid again. we’ve got a month to go. Other parents have said that the weeks before going OT also seemed sort of tough for them.

Beside the nose bleed, she’s lots of bruises up and down her legs.  Her feet will be firmly planted on the ground.  She did enjoy two days of riding her bike.  And I felt nervous the entire time. Crankiness and hunger from the steroids has set in.  But this time it seems more emotional.  Just like she can’t control her feelings.

Amazing that we started this thing, Isa was only three, now at almost five and a half, she seems so grown up.  Two and half years is a VERY long time.  A very long time.

Thanks for reading!
