No chemo today, unfortunately Hannah's platelets were only 61, and they had to be 100 to get the chemo. It's probably better anyway that her body has some extra time to come up and past 100, so that she is stronger before the drug totally collapses her again. We have an appointment for Monday, and expect that her counts will be fine to have chemo on Monday and Tuesday.
We all had fun yesterday trick-or-treating. Hannah made it to about 8 houses, before she tired out. Then I carried her for another 8 houses before I got tired, and she made it the rest of the way in style riding in the wagon. Colby took her bag around for her, so she still collected a lot of candy (just what we need, more candy!!). She is a great big sister and had no trouble carrying around 2 heavy bags of candy. I think Hannah got a bit bored in the wagon, watching everyone else run from house to house. She told me that it was not that much fun because she was too tired. I have to give her a lot of credit though, she didn't complain and was a trooper. It was hard not to notice the enormous disparity between Hannah in the wagon and all the other kids running around having a great time on Halloween. The look on her face was so sad and quiet and lonely.
Colby went afterwards with her friends and Hannah wanted to stop at two houses on the way home-the neighbor down the road that we don't know with a golden retriever, and our neighbors the Rohrbachs. We did both together and called it a night.
Here are a few pictures of us on Halloween.
