We went in this morning to check her blood counts. She is going to need another platelet transfusion on Sunday.
Nana Fran came to the hospital this morning. This is a picture of them reading a very big pink Barbie book!
Wednesday she had a red blood transfusion. All these transfusion are time consuming but the fact that we need them at all is reassuring. The chemo is working and kicking cancer right out of there!
Here is a picture of Hannah getting the red blood transfusion and being silly.

The chemo is having a big effect on her legs and feet this week. She mentions often that her has sprinkle toes (they go numb) or scratchy legs. Sometimes her hands and feet get really hot and to make her feel better we take their temperature. They are generally a degree or so hotter! I love those new thermometers. Just press a button, set the thermometer on the skin, wait a second, and presto. You the temperature of whatever the sensor was touching. Where were those when the boys were little?
Yesterday, Hannah got to spend the day with Grandma Patty. She had the time of her life! She has spoken of little else since then. She was just a normal kid having a great time and it meant the world. She got to step in a little baby pool, play with bubbles, and throw a ball around in the backyard.
