Sicily is doing really good. Whoever's blood she received over the weekend had to have come from an Olympic athlete...she has more energy than I know what to do with. Amazing! She's spunky, happy, mischievous Sicily!
Last night she was "jogging" around the house with a string for Stowie to chase when I naturally reminded her, as an over protective mother usually does, not to run in the house. Her reply was, "I know, I only have one kidney left!" Okay...the point must have been made before hand and actually sunk in somewhere along the way. It's not that I don't want her to run and have fun, I prefer that none of the kids run in the house...I just want her to be careful. And for the most part she is. But all three of our other kids have had facial stitches do to normal kid activities...wrestling too close to a fire place hearth, running up a wet drive way, slip and sliding with a buddy...so I am just a bit on the weary and over cautious side, especially where Sicily is concerned.
I couldn't slow her down if I wanted to. She has drive and energy too hard to contain! I wish I had just a fraction of what she has! Sicily's next appointment will be on Thursday to get Vincristine. I start her Neupogen shots again today for the next nine days. We'll wait until daddy gets home as she likes for him to hold her as I do it. We need to keep them on a pretty routine schedule, so evenings seem to work the best. That way I have the whole day to remember that I need to do it. I did great last time. I put a note on the refrigerator and that seemed to be enough of a reminder.
Everyone have a good Monday!
