Quick update today - Brinley is feeling pretty sick and is lying around. It may be because she's tired too, she was up quite a bit last night and has not napped at all today. We got the results from the hospital - there aren't any infections, so that is good news. We tried taking her to a soccer game last night, but since her ANC was so low (230) they said she had to wear a mask. We figured we'd try it to get some fresh air, but she was not thrilled about wearing the mask, so I gave up and went home around half time. She won't even attempt to walk or stand on her legs yet, the orthopedic specialist said that it might be a week or so before she's walking, but I'm wondering if her legs are hurting and it will take longer. I know sometimes the chemo can cause leg pain or numbness in the hands and feet, so I don't know when she'll be walking again. My mom got here today, so she is helping get my house back to order, and helping with running kids around this weekend. She'll be here until Monday. We are having a little girls night tonight and taking Taylor and Jade to the musical Seussical. That will be fun, everyone is looking forward to it. It will be good to get out for a little while, and this is one of our favorite musicals!

I also had my OB/GYN appointment today, it went fine. I lost a little weight, and the doc wanted to make sure I was eating, which I assured him I am eating just fine, just a little stressed. But everything else seemed totally fine. I'm at 14 weeks right now. I'll go in again next month, and possibly find out what we are having!

Although there's no need to find out... cause we're gonna have a girl. :)

Yeah I am glad there was no infection - I was worried. Give Brinley a kiss for me! And have fun and suessical. We are watching The Suite life with Zack and Cody n Disney Channel. Not as exciting!

I'm glad things are moving along. My heart goes out to little Brin and wonder what must be going through her mind. So much pain, fatigue, drugs. She's obviously not fully aware of what's going and thinks this is just how life is. The silver lining is that she will feel sooo much better when things are "normal" again someday. The refiners fire can sure get hot, huh.
