Thank you for praying for Abby. It was a rough, tiring week but we are home. Abby is still sick and running a low grade fever (100.0). If it reaches 101 she has to go back to ER. Poor kid has had her temp taken a million times today.
Abby's doctors decided to not do the spinal tap/chemo for 10 days. I hate the delay because we want the cancer sells to be destroyed but it is a relief that she will get the chance to heal before they bathe her brain in more chemo. The breaks from chemo really seem to help to help her intracranial pressure normalize.
Normally, Brent and I both make all decisions quickly, confidently and never look back. We are as comfortable waiting on God's timing and direction as we are making and acting on big decisions.
It is a very strange day when I am thankful someone else is making a decision for me but I was very glad the decision about the lumbar puncture was taken out of my hands.
We would have loved to spend today relaxing and regrouping but with Abby's temperature slowly climbing all day our focus had to be on getting housework done in case Abby is readmitted to the hospital. Pretty boring, I know but little things like clean socks make the hospital days much better. Fortunately Brent works hard and fast, while making it fun for the kids. I am blessed to have him for a husband.
Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to get back to making memories. Thank you for all of your prayers and encouraging words.
Well, it is 3am and I am off to give Abby her chemo and take her temp one last time.
