Today went pretty well! Today was truly the best "wake up" event yet. We also got word that soon Kayla will not be Prone anymore (meaning she can receive radiation on her back). We will be working with Amy from Child Life to try and get her ready for this. She will have to be completely still if she is to try it awake. Zero movement. Today, we almost hit our 1/2 way mark for radiation completion. It was her 12th session.
We hung out all afternoon at the Target House. It was uneventful. We did go down to the Amy Grant room again to watch Toy Story 3 in blue ray. That movie is just SO good! Such a sweet story! :)
Kayla's hair is starting to really come out now. I am hesitant to shave it b/c on some kids with thick hair like hers, it just thins. We will wait and see. She is begging me to shave it bc the shedding is really annoying, but I explained that we will wait a bit more. She is concerned that Anthony will be freaked out when he sees her. I assured her that we will skype enough between now and when he arrives in just a few days that he won't be shocked at all.
Here is Kayla's journal entry for today. We keep encouraging her to write. It's very therapeutic. Mom should know ;) She read it all to us. When she got to the part about brushing her teeth, she explained that the rest is what she knows will happen. Too funny!
Yesterday, we got some tickets to go to the Liberty Bowl tomorrow. They were giving them out to SJ families. I have never been to a football game in my life. It's supposed to be 65 degrees and sunny! Such nice weather to be outside! That will be fun to go and see. I will bring my camera.
Then, it's time to start getting together some recipes for some fun New Years Eve yummies. I can't believe it's almost 2012! What are your plans?
