Follow up

I thought I should write a quick post to let you guys know how the night actually went.  I guess we finally got the cocktail right because about 9:30 G finally stopped throwing up and went to sleep.  She slept pretty well during the night except for the frequent trips to the bathroom.  I got up this morning to find her feeling pretty lousy.  She tried to do some jumping jacks while watching Mickey Mouse and it broke my heart to watch her get two or three done and collapse back on to her bed.  The doctor came in early and told us that this is how kids usually act after chemo.  The fact that in the past she has ran around the grounds of ECH after her chemo is not the norm at all.  We drove home around 11:00 and she made it all the way to the driveway before she had to vomit in the bushes.  She is resting now and getting really hungry.  Hopefully she will be able to hold down some food and get back on her feet in the next day or two.  Cancer sucks but I am so proud of my girl and her ability to stay strong and positive when she feels lousy.

  1. It's so aggravating to hear about her throwing up so much. Are they giving her the anti-nausea stuff (well, they did for my friend and it really helped). I just can't imagine how you two watch this happening. My energies sent your way for all of you.

  2. You guys are doing great. Gabriella will be herself again and running around in no time. You're getting so much closer to the end!! Way to stay strong and positive!! BIG HUGS!!
