Hope all you Virginians are surviving El Blizzardo. I'm sure the capital area has all but closed down for the snowpocalypse. It is COLD here, but not much precipitation.
Things here are quiet, which is good. Well, not literally quiet, except for nap time and after bed, but quiet on the medical front. And I know all our dedicated blogees are checking for updates. Evy's been healthy except for nausea, a little dehydration, and needing a blood transfusion, which is pretty typical after a round of chemo. But, no fevers or illnesses, and she's been keeping most of her feedings down. She is also starting to take nibbles of food, so we hope she gets her appetite back. Walking keeps getting better and better, and she mostly needs confidence now to start roaming freely.
Other than that, we're just hanging out waiting for proton therapy to begin on Tuesday. Evy has had good experiences with anaesthesia, and we hope that will be the case once she starts getting it on a daily basis.
Stella is our little nurse, and we often find her pretending to be putting medicine into Evy's tubes. She has also become much gentler during all this, often stops to give Evy hugs, and is always making sure that Evy is included, has one of whatever she has, and constantly asks "Ebbie?" (her pronunciation of Evy). Both girls are picking up new words all the time and will be spouting off full sentences in no time. Which is frightening.
So, that's what's going on. We'll let everyone know how our first days of protons go in a couple of days.
