Today is one of those days and I have a feeling there are more days like this to come. Lauren (GOL) was released from the hospital yesterday to return Monday to begin her first round of chemo. The long car ride home from Children’s Hospital coupled with not getting any rest that day took a toll on her. She got in bed as soon as she got home. I called over there today and Steve told me that she slept okay last night and had slept most of the day. I thought that was good.
Duty called over later on to ask if they wanted an extra tv we had for La’s room and Aunt Marge told him that they took La to the hospital because she spiked a fever. That was worrisome. We left to go on our usual Saturday night coffee run. When we got back, there was a message from Mary saying that they were going in an ambulance to Children’s since it appeared Lauren had developed fluid in her lungs and they were trying to ward off pneumona. Dammit. That most definiately ain’t good. All this BEFORE chemo even starts.
So, here I sit, doing nothing and wishing I could be there and help somehow, some way. I know Mary will call if she needs me (she actually did on Friday so that heartens me) but I still want to be there. I know Duty feels the same.
If you want to send some healing energy and thoughts to my babygirl, that would be most appreciated. I certainly am as it’s all I can do right tonight besides sit and worry.
Bless her sweet little heart.
