Becca ate a cookie today! I don't think I've ever been so excited for her to eat such a food, but when your child hasn't eaten in almost a week, the doctors start discussing putting in an NG tube, and she starts to show interest in eating anything, you experience a little bit of hope. I SO needed this after such a long night. Becca was up every half hour to forty-five minutes (as was I) as a result of the lasix emptying her body of extra fluids, pain, fever, thirst (yay!), the need for oxygen, nebulizer treatments, and constant beeping of her leads for heartrate, respiration, and pulseox. We sure needed a nap today!
Her labs showed that the platelets she got yesterday did not take again, which means her body might be attacking them. We are still awaiting news of a chromosomal breakage test so that we know how to proceed with her treatment, but so far we haven't gotten the results. We expect them tomorrow, and hopefully we can start chemotherapy.
After taking an oral medication that she didn't want to take, Becca's eating a popsicle now and watching Chipwrecked, so all is good! More news tomorrow...
