One Day Home...
We arrived home from the hospital last night, and have been enjoying being home today! Ellie has had a fair amount of mouth, throat and stomach pain, but has only thrown up one time during this whole chemo cycle...and that is a record for her! Today the challenge has been to keep enough fluids in her. She has been trying hard to keep drinking and eating little bits at a time, but it is very hard to drink enough. Going from around the clock IV hydration to doing it all herself is quite an adjustment. Please pray that she can drink enough so that we won't have to go back to the hospital.
Ethan will be home tonight - I can't wait to see him. I've spent the day unpacking and cleaning up. This is the very first time I've been able to completely unpack right after a hospital stay. (I must confess, there are still things in my laundry room that I've not unpacked from our FIRST hospital stay, ugh.)
I'll continue to let you know how things are going...sorry I'm not so consistent...it's much easier to keep up with updates from the hospital. When we're home, days go by so quickly and I don't even realize that time is flying by.
I hope you all have a good evening. Thanks for always checking on Ellie and praying for and loving her!
