It started out as a rough day again, when they kept me up from 3am-4am doing the same things they did the night before. I was pretty grumpy until Mommy's friend Kate from work came in bearing toys and yummy treats to bring me out of my funk. I didn't even want to go out to rounds once I got distracted by the toy basket, and that it is usually one of my favorite parts of the day. Daddy and Kate went out to get another huge basket full of comfort and entertainment items for Mommy and Daddy, while I licked a lollipop and used my new markers in a coloring book. The thoughtfulness of Mommy's friends from the Intermediate and Middle School amazes me!
I got worn out after just a few minutes of playing with the new toys, so Mommy put me down for a nap. I woke up really hungry and ate three chicken nuggets (quickly), as well as almost a full bag of Sun Chips. This was the most I had eaten in a few days.
I got my second blood transfusion today (I'm O+, by the way). I think it will help me have more energy... I hope so, anyway. I fell asleep around 4pm again, right after Nana came in and before Lily and Nanna B. arrived. That morphine stuff sure makes me tired, but I'm glad they're managing my pain a little.
I woke up from my nap roaring mad, because Mommy and Daddy were gone, and Nanna B. and Nana were with me. Why did they leave me? Nana carried me down to the cafeteria, while Nanna B. pushed my IV pole. Mommy, Daddy, and Lily were getting dinner, so I guess that's why they abandoned me. Lily was acting a little loopy, and Mommy and Daddy kept attributing it to the fact that she didn't have a nap. I know I don't act right without a nap either.
After dinner, we were a sight to behold... Mommy carrying me (because I wouldn't let anyone else do it) and holding a weeping and heartbroken Lily by the right hand, while Nana pushed the IV pole, Nanna B. carried all of the "stuff," and Daddy held Lily's other hand. Lily ended up sobbing and having a total meltdown when she had to leave with Nana, and Mommy and Daddy cried in the alligator (elevator) on the way up to the room. Man, this is really hard...
