Weight Check Wednesday & Snotty Museum Girl
Hannah has a chemo appointment tomorrow. They have also scheduled her to have a feeding tube placed unless her weight is up. Here we go again.
We went down this road during the last IM phase. Something about the combo of Vincristine and Methotrexate really kills her appetite. That said, she has been forcing herself to eat more this week. She HATED the feeding tube. I think, she just might make it.
She has been feeling pretty good all week and really wanting to do more than hang out at our house. So, for New Year's Eve, we went to the Spaghetti Factory, (eating is awesome) and we went to the Tacoma Glass Museum. Unfortunately, when we arrived they informed us that there was only 30 minutes left before they closed. Holidays. It didn't really make sense to pay for the whole crew and only get to be there for 30 minutes.
Hannah was so excited. She wanted to go in. Her ANC was up, she was feeling well, and we were already there. We asked if perhaps we could get a discounted rate just for the short duration we would be there. The snottiest woman I have encountered in awhile told us in that, too bad so sad, tone, that it wasn't an option. We could, however, pay the entrance fee and go in.
Sometimes, I am just so stubborn. I bought a membership. Problem solved. We could go in, and the money not only wouldn't be wasted, it would ensure we could go lots of times. Two trips to this place would have been the cost of membership, anyway. Plus, I did read in the little brochure, that there are glass sculpture projects for kids and it is indoors for godsake! You can't have enough indoor places to go around here. If you can't tell, I am trying like crazy to justify that decision! That wasn't in the budget, at all. Sigh. Look at this face, though. What are you gonna do?
