Improving (day +14)
She went over to her play area again this morning for more coloring and painting. She is such an artist :)
They started her on the milk pump last night at 10 ml an hour. That's hardly anything (2 tsp) but she did great and didn't puke at all!! Knock on wood. They are going to increase it to 15 ml an hour continuous over the weekend and see how shes doing on Monday and taper off on the TPN. They said if she keeps doing so well that she could probably get out of here sometime next week!! Her kidney, heart, and liver function are all doing great as well. Her counts are good and she hasn't needed transfusions the last two days.
After we get out of here, she will need to stay at the Ronald McDonald house for a while. Then maybe we can go home for a little while before radiation in a few weeks.
