First, I wanted say that we got some good news at her appointment, yesterday. Hannah's counts are indeed on their way down. The chemo is doing it's thing to kick the cancer out.
Infact, she will need to go in a couple times this upcoming week for transfusions. Now, those are LONG hospital days.
Hannah and I however, just got something that is going to make that a bit easier. For her birthday, I got her a portable DVD player. Disney princess pink, of course.
Yesterday, was her first trial of this new entertainment at the hospital. I couldn't believe how much easier this made the day.
I'm sure many of you know how difficult it is to keep a young child busy during a boring outing. Well, most of our time while not getting chemo is spent in the waiting room, waiting (odd, right?) for different phases of the appointment to take place. It is an exhausting struggle to make that "fun".
Here is pretty much how yesterday went.
Discovering it works in the car.
In the waiting room.
Blood pressure and temp? No prob, just work around the screen.
Waiting for the Doc, still not a problem
Transfusion Room for chemo, "What else you want to do?"
I'm sure the novelty of her new device will wear off, but for now, I hope it helps her get through the next few appointments.
