I arrived at the hospital and was pleasantly surprised that child life was in the playroom! What great timing. I was able to leave Anthony in there to play while Denny and I spent some time together in with Kayla. When I walked into the room, it was so much darker and smaller then over on the BMT floor in Chili's. There was one tiny bathroom and the parents were to use the "family" bathroom down the hall. It made the old room seemed like the Ritz! Regardless, it was great to be able to be in there and physically hold the bucket for her and help her in ways that mommy can. Where Daddy is amazing in every way, sometimes you just need momma. So, Denny took advantage of me being there and he and Anthony went and got some lunch. I was happy to finally be able to be in there and feel useful! In between the throwing up, we talked about normal things. I told Kayla stories about when she was little or when I was little. It was good to see her smiling and somewhat feeling "ok" while in between not feeling so good. She just seemed so much more with it which was very comforting! Tomorrow she will receive the lesser of the two evils. So we are hoping that it's an even better day!
We had an unexpected change of plans right after I left. The nurse told Denny and Kayla that the testing on the BMT floor was complete and the coast is clear! They would be moving over to the Chili's side. See? Never a dull moment! They quickly got moved and situated over there and are currently doing great. I am glad that Denny will have his own bathroom and shower! Little blessings....... Also, Kayla's weight dipped after going off of TPN but has remained stable. She will return to her TPN and Lipids after the Chemo is finished.
Tonight Donna arrived! It was SO wonderful to see her!!!!! We skyped with Kayla and Denny and Kayla asked what time Donna will come to see her tomorrow. She loves her God Momma :) Before that, on our drive to the Target House tonight we saw a rainbow in the sky! There was no rain in site. No rhyme or reason for it. Just a tiny rainbow. Donna and I both saw it at the same time and she was able to snap a picture of it. I will take it as a sign. A sign of tiny miracles that DO happen. We will take all we can get!
Can you see the rainbow? It is vertical just over the left side of the road.
Donna and Anthony reunited again! :)
