Stargazing

Day one is coming to a close, and so far Ellie has done beautifully. She has had great energy all day and has been so happy...constantly humming and whistling...playing and giggling. This evening she had some stomach pain, but it hasn't been constant. As with every cycle, there is a cumulative effect, so despite the fact that on each of the three days there will be one less medication given, the accumulation of drugs in her system grows each day. I do feel that Ellie has gone into this cycle stronger than on any other thus far, so overall I'm encouraged. We will take it one day at a time.

John had lunch with his parents and Ethan. He said that Ethan's doing very well. He's happy and even let his daddy leave without crying. After work, John came to the hospital to spend the evening.

And so, for tonight my family is content and peaceful...and for that I'm thankful. There's a little quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson that sums up where I'm at tonight: "When it's dark enough, you can see the stars."
