We made our half way mark for radiation and it feels good…. sort of. Emma is really starting to drag around. Although Dr. Pi tells us that after radiation is over she should perk back up again!
So today was a big day! We had six appointments on our schedule and only had to reschedule one so that’s doing really well!
Radiation was first.
Then Emma got to see Dr. Pi (the radiologist who over-see’s her therapy) we really like him and think he looks like a undergrad instead of the experienced physician that he is.
Next Emma had her weekly blood draw = “labs”. Where there are always really great nurses who make the weekly stick bearable!
We had some time to kill so we went upstairs to the second floor (where all the inpatient kids are) and waited in the waiting room up there since it’s usually quieter and we can listen to the juke box and get on the computer to check email and blog.
Then we saw her primary care intern Dr. Chuuk, a nice young chinese physician. (I forgot to get a photo I think David was giving me trouble)
And lastly there was a visit with her Child Life Counselor Kristiana ( who is really great and I also forgot to get a picture)
We came home and had a late lunch and relaxed a bit. Emma went and played games with the University of Boston kids and David and I got a nap. Our family comes tomorrow to bring big sister Claressa so she can spend next week with us for her spring break. Boy am I glad to have her! I’ve missed her and all her help! Boy do I miss Claressa and Nick both! But we’ll be home before too long!
Davey boy is feeling better and that is a relief to me. So it’s off to bed. Hugs to you all! – Catherine
