LONG Day

Lucy had a great schedule today and we were just sure we would be home by 4:00.  She was scheduled for RT at 12:45.  At 3:30 they finally took her back.  Due to the horrible storms in the area the LINAC machine was down and all therapies were delayed.  Since she is NPO before her procedure, that means she has had no food or drink since 7:00pm last night.  She was such a trooper today, but I know she was tired and hungry.  I sure was!  I am in the waiting room and am learning to take advantage of my free time.  Blogging and working on our taxes.  Fun times!

Look at the hair bow.  I am going to let her wear one until she can't any longer.  I think she looks just like the normal, pre-cancer Lucy.  So beautiful.

  1. It's so encouraging to hear you had a more normal weekend and Lucy is able to be home. Love the hair bow! My daughter likes headbands, but has never kept bows in very well. Keeping you in our prayers!

  12. I have been reading your blog since Lucy was diagnosed. She is adorable and I pray each day for healing. My 3 year old had meningitis at 2 months old, and I put a hair bow in her hair EVERY DAY she was in the hospital! It helped make me feel a little normal! Keep the bows going!!! I LOVE IT!

  21. Kate,
    I am so glad you had a great weekend, and so sorry the day was long. Also so glad y'all weren't driving home when the big storm hit! I went back and read some of the old posts. I feel like I am reading your diary, especially the post about old and new Kate. Just take one day, hour, or minute at a time, and know that all the people who follow your blog are praying for you and your family.
    Hugs!

  28. A mutual friend posted Lucy's story on Facebook, and I have been praying from several states away. It warms my heart and strengthens my faith to hear how joyful your last few days have been. I'll be praying for more of the same and healing for your sweet girl.

  32. Lucy looks gorgeous! My prayers are with you often. My sister in law makes bows, headbands etc. Didn't know if Lucy would like headbands with bows on them? They are these really soft headbands that you can interchange the bows on. I would LOVE to send you some if you think that she would like them....my SIL website is www.fiveblessedbows.com, if you click on the picture in the begging it brings you to a page that has many different styles on them, but in the top left corner there is a baby with a pink headband and bow, that is what I am talking about. Adn then if you scroll down farther you can click on baby bow headbands. Let me know if you think Lucy would like these:-) my email is mssweetpea2000@yahoo.com
