Yes, we're in! Hannah's counts checked out today and we were admitted for Round 7. It took ony 10 and a half hours to get upstairs on the floor into a room, ugh! We got here at 8am (left our house at 6:15am) and didn't get in our room until 6:30 pm tonight. It is very packed here, and every room is full. There were three admissions today, and we were the last to get a room. But, now we are in and settled. They started Hannah's chemo before we came up to the floor, so she was even done with both of her medications by the time we arrived. So far, so good, just fatigued from the 2 anti nausea meds, and still eating well.
Hannah was able to deliver the gifts she bought today to Childlife. They were so happy to receive everything. This is a picture of Jan from Childlife receiving the goods. Since we brought them directly to Childlife, they are able to use them specifically for the hemotology/oncology pedicatric patients that are either in clinic or inpatient. Hannah is going to ask them to break out the Mousetrap game we brought tomorrow!
Hannah also feels the need to mention our Yankees. She told me that now she will root for the Red Sox because the Yankees aren't in it anymore. Just two nights ago when Johnny Damon hit a homerun to lift the team up and begin a rally to win the game, she was insistent that we email Audrey from Spaulding in Boston (who loved Damon before he became a Yankee and cut off his hair). Not many people we know switch from rooting for the Yankees to backing the Red Sox, so to all of our Boston friends, good luck!
