What a great day today was. Roxy ate a TON of food, took a bath, and actually said tonight that nothing hurt for the first time in a long time. I think the radiation and chemo must be helping because she barely takes any pain medicine at all. Next week (Thursday), they will do a new simulation at radiation that should give us some idea of how the tumor has shrunk. Say lots of prayers and send positive vibes Roxy’s way.
We go back to the hospital Monday and Tuesday mornings for radiation. Wednesday we will go from radiation to the Pediatric Oncology unit so we can be admitted. This is the 5 day chemo. We will come home Monday provided everything goes well. I’m definitely not looking forward to being back in the hospital (being away from Brie is so hard), but Roxy has a great attitude about it. She said that she’s looking forward to seeing her nurses again. She wasn’t even upset when I told her that she would be in the hospital for her birthday. She said we could have a party later when she’s feeling better. She is really an amazing kid. I knew that already, but I’m really seeing now just how brave and strong she is. She is an inspiration to me.
We are all amazed by the generosity of our friends and family. I can’t tell you how much your support means to us. This is definitely the most difficult thing we have ever been through, but the support you have all given us makes it much easier. There is absolutely no way we could go through all of this without you. Thank you so much! Remember to tell your friends and family how much you love them.
Love to you all,
Stacey
