I think the repeated stress and lack of sleep took its toll and I started to feel pretty overwhelmed with a cold on Monday. Andrew was really energetic and peppy on Monday and Tuesday, so I had a rough time keeping up with him. My mother-in-law graciously enough flew out from Indiana to come stay with him, so she has spelled me for the last two nights and has been a most wonderful gopher for us. We're so grateful she's dropped everything to come help us out.
Andrew took a long time to bottom out. He finally hit zero today, more than a week and a half since chemo began. I've noticed he's always clingy and fussy when his ANC is low--I think there's definitely a general malaise that sets in when you don't have neutrophils.
It's been a really, really hard day. So grateful to know there is a Plan of Salvation. I'll post more on Andrew soon to keep updated. I'm sorry I've been such a lousy updater, Mom.
Time at home with daddy
In for round 4, and Andrew's giving us a run for our money. We were just wiped.
Andrew's line broke the first night back, and saline and blood just got everywhere
More and more and more chemo
Somehow, Andrew was so happy even a week after chemo started
Pretty sick today
