No one ever said it would be easy... just worth it.
Kayla. Oh sweet baby girl Kayla. What a day. The puffiness was lessened but is still present. Especially in her tiny eyelids. I hate that! It makes me sad to look at her normally perfect and beautiful eyes and cringe at how painful they must feel to her. I know they will go down soon and that is good. It can't go away soon enough for me. Donna bought Kayla some really cute Mickey Mouse earrings when she was at Disneyland last. Kayla was very excited and wanted them changed right away. She sure loves Donna (so do we) :)
Anthony was happy to see his daddy today. So happy he spit on him. Literally. On purpose! We know. It's for attention. We know. Sometimes attention is attention. He got busy writing an "I'm sorry" letter and he spent the next few hours alone with his dad. It's hard on a four year old to know how to express that he misses his dad. He says, "It's not fair!" a lot. How do you explain to a four year old that cancer isn't fair?
Kayla is being encouraged to drink from her milkshake just before the "vitamin" incident. Tic-Tac-Toe. If she loses, she takes a sip
We got some free tickets for a semi-pro ball game tomorrow. It's box seats! Anthony has never ever been to a baseball game, so he will have a blast! Donna and I will make sure that Anthony has good time. I want him to have good memories from all of this. We have two kids to protect here. Sometimes it takes sacrifices. I know Denny will stay on top of Kayla's care like no other. I will keep my phone on my lap and never stop thinking of Kayla while we are gone. We will be just around the corner... which makes me a little more at ease.
Tomorrow is a day of "rest" for Kayla. No more Chemo. She should start to feel a little better and hopefully have more energy. Soon she will be throwing that foot ball again.
