Another Rough Day.... and Night

I'll make this short and sweet.  Erik and I are going to try to get some rest since we will be up every 2 hours making Lucy go potty.  It's a fun 48 hours for us all, let me just tell ya!  Lucy has felt like crap all day long.  Groggy from anti-nausea medication, nauseated from chemo, tired from vomiting so much and now she has a fever of 102.  All around it has been a not-so-good day. 

I will give her credit to the fact that she just won't let this keep her down.  She worked through OT and PT even though she felt horrible.  She visited with her grandparents and sister, even though she would rather curl up in a ball and sleep.  She's such a fighter.  She makes me want to be a better person.  I love her so much!

 OT with Miss Jordan

 Color time with Daddy

Ok, this gift falls into the "Crazy Aunt Holly" category. We love our new Crocs and we love you Holly and Sada!

 Lucy asleep tonight.  Resting peacefully after a rough day.  She loves the new Buzz blanket she received in the mail.

  4. Kate,
    I just wanted to leave a note of encouragement to tell you that hope springs eternal. When my son was only 2 1/2 years old, he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. We went through many, many months of surgeries and chemo. My heart aches for you, Lucy, and your family, because I have been there too. But Kate, my son is now a 31 year old, 6'4" computer programmer who has a Master's Degree. He is living proof of the miracles of prayer and healing. May your precious Lucy experience that same healing and strength.
    With sincere hope ~ Mrs. A

  5. If only I could take her sickness for a day -- just to give that poor child a break! Since God doesn't work that way, I'll just continue to remind my family to, 'Pray for Lucy, a little girl we don't know'.

  6. Lucy looks so worn out. I'm praying that the fever will go away and that all of you can get some rest. Praying....

  7. I LOVE the picture of Lucy with Ella in their crocs! SO CUTE! The one of her and her daddy is priceless! Those precious moments are the ones that make me smile...Daddy/Daughter time! She looks so worn out! Poor little thing!

    Praying hard!
