Becca's new friend Elizabeth made the trip back to the hospital a little better!
Sisters enjoying playtime together - don't you love the bee hat?!
Becca and I found a cool courtyard outside on a morning excursion Saturday.
So nice to get fresh air...

Not much to report tonight except that Becca's counts have fallen, so now it's a waiting game to see when they will rebound. She is finished with chemo until next month when we come in for the bone marrow transplant. Becca received packed red blood cells yesterday, since her hemoglobin was low, and platelets today. They were planning on waiting to give platelets until she went a bit lower, but she ended up with a pretty massive nosebleed today. Let me just say that the weekend was a bit traumatic for Becca. She doesn't like the word "blood," doesn't like to see blood or blood products (especially going into or out of her body), she thinks platelets are chemo that makes her bones hurt, and she feels ill looking at where her central line goes into her body. Our weekend revolved around all of those things. She needed a dressing change Friday night, blood transfusion on Saturday, and platelets on Sunday due to low platelet count and nosebleed. As a bonus, when Lily was there with us tonight, Becca vomited as a result of taking a really gross medication, and Lily has trouble handling it when Becca throws up. She jumped up from Becca's bed quick as a flash and ran to the corner of the room behind the recliner, crying until Becca stopped.
Want to write more (happier things) tonight, but I'm wiped and keep falling asleep. Ethan or I will update again soon...
P.S. Again, a HUGE thanks to all of you blood and/or platelet donors out there! You are saving lives every day... I know I appreciate you!
