The last few days

Okay, so I have been busy. Mindy has Grannie Thiessen there at the house helping her out.  Taylor has been good mostly, but has some times where she is inconsolable. Mindy and Grannie went yesterday to emergency, but after waiting 4 hours they left as she had a Doctor's appointment today anyway and Taylor seemed to get better. Apparently they feel it is back pain from one of the chemo drugs and they advised to give her codeine. Before she had the pain in the beginning of post chemo and now it looks like it is kicking in later. At least we are learning the process and how to make this a bit better for Taylor. The doctor were a bit miffed at the time wait as there agreement with emergency is cancer patients and especially pediatric cancer patients should not wait longer than an hour. This will be resolved next time if this happens through Mindy calling her doctor who will pull strings where needed.

Taylor still has low blood counts so she may not get chemo next week unless she improves. She has gained weight and weighs in at 12 pounds 3 ounces, which I feel is awesome. So on Monday Taylor will get her blood work again, so I will have to let you know then how things are.

Landon returns to his girls tomorrow, yeah! I know how much he must miss them as I miss them like crazy and he is obviously closer to them.LOL 

All in all I would say things are good. I think we might need to get Mindy to take more breaks, but I am sure that will come with time. Please make sure if you can that you lure her out of the house for coffee, etc. I think she could use some get out times,
