It's time for clinic AGAIN, I feel like the past couple months have flown by! Millie actually had clinic on Thursday, but since we were posting about Disney World I decided to hold off a couple days.
Everything went pretty well. We met a new little girl that has the same cancer has Millie (HI OLIVIA!) and Millie did her crafting as usual. We had her blood counts drawn and thankfully they are high enough that I'm not in panic mode everywhere we go. She also got her Vincristine and started steroids. YUCK! Can I tell you how much I seriously HATE steroids. The doctors and nurses always told us that we wouldn't really notice a difference in her behavior since she's only on them for 5 days out of the month. WHAT A JOKE! Maybe I would be handling it better if I'd been prepared, but by the time they've been in her system for 24 hours I have completely lost my daughter. Don't get me wrong she has her good moments and she does well with other people, but this is what I hear all day, "I HATE YOU, DON'T TOUCH ME, DON'T TALK TO ME, I SAID DON'T TALK TO ME", followed by a lot of crying, stomping around, and sometimes throwing things.
Don't be fooled by her darling smile...
Height: 103 cm
(I do think she was standing on her toes a bit, she loves to trick)
Weight: 16 kg (about 35lbs)
(still a little low for Maintenance, so they are keeping her at 1/2 does chemo for 2 more weeks)
