|Molly always gets to play on Mom's iPod when we go to the clinic. Her favorite game is Monkey Preschool Lunchbox.|
|Big Sis got to stay with Molly while we were at the ER for Molly's fever. Molly really liked having her there.|
|In the clinic rooms they have these neat toys attached to the walls that the kids can play with while waiting.|
Also, Molly has started learning her letters and sounds on the computer. Starfall.com is the same website Big Sis played on when she was little to help learn the letters and sounds, so she is usually right next to Molly helping her figure stuff out.
On July 8th we had another easy clinic visit, just like the last visit. We both really love these quick visits! We're pretty much in and out on these days.
|Molly's so used to the blood pressure routine that she's to the point where she's telling the nurse what to do next, which buttons to push, and taking the cuff off before the nurse even notices that the machine is finished.|
|Sometimes Molly likes to sit on the bed in the clinic room, but usually she only wants to sit on Mom's lap the whole time.|
We had almost 3 weeks off until our next appointment, which starts THE MAINTENANCE PHASE!!! The doctors told me that the only count-dependent part of the maintenance phase is the first visit, and then after that it doesn't matter how low her ANC counts go, we still plow through to the end. The only thing that can set us back is if her labs come back with something abnormal like her red blood cells and platelets suddenly drop. I don't think that's likely though, because she's been doing so well on her treatment so far. So here's to the next two years! I'll be updating after each visit (every 4 weeks) so watch for that! There will be another post very soon for the details on the visit we just had this week.
