Being home has been an interesting experience. It seems that we brought home a middle school girl and a rapidly growing 16 year old boy. Millie's mood swings have been intense to say the least. She'll scream at us for no reason not to talk to her, about her, to each other, and most importantly "DO NOT BE NICE TO ME"! It's amazing what the steroids are doing to my baby girl.
The 16 year old boy living in my daughters body wants to eat constantly! She had a chemo treatment on Monday and because they did a spinal tap and took bone morrow she had to be anesthetized. She was so hungry before her procedures. She just kept yelling at us that she had to eat NOW! Since she wouldn't stop talking about food I decided to try playing a waitress game with her. I took her order for what she wanted to eat when she woke up.
Here's the list:
- a bag of cheesy Cheetos
- an egg sandwich (call it egg salad and you'll get your head ripped off)
- a slice of cheese and peperoni pizza
- the round noodles, with red stuff on top (also known as spaghetti)
- cheese without anything else
- and a Slurpee.
The 1st thing she asked for when she came to was her Cheese Cheetos and Slurpee. Luckily the hospital was stocked with both! On our way to pick up Austin we got take-out from Big Apple Pizzeria. There we ordered the pizza and spaghetti, while my mom got the cheese and egg sandwich ready.
SHE ATE ALL OF IT!
Not only will we go broke from medical expenses, but we are going to have a killer grocery bill.
Millie and Brady made a darling gingerbread house. They were really cute; when Brady was doing EXACTLY what Millie told him to do.
Millie's Christmas List:
- Horsie that has sparkly hair
- Sparkly Barbie
- Water balloons
I love that at South Towne Center they don't make you buy their pictures, but the Santa only looks at their camera. This was the best I could get.
Millie didn't really enjoy Christmas it was sad. I think the best part of her day was when Jager came over to visit. Austin on the other hand LOVED his new toy. He was so cute. He immediately started spinning the sides and hitting the mobile.
Millie loving her snuggie and her daddy.
