SECOND POST FOR TODAY
THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 2009 12:53 PM, CDT
Sicily is now getting her pint of O positive blood. When the nurse brought in the bag of dark red life sustaining liquid, Sicily exclaimed, "There's my blood!" Like they just brought her a milkshake. I will enjoy watching her lips resume their natural color.
We will be going downstairs here soon for a "photo shoot"...the hospital marketing director met with Sicily and I this morning and asked if they could take pictures of Sicily to use for a publication. I think it's for a Welfare League that donates supplies to the hospital library, or something to that matter. I will find out more when we go downstairs. They said they wanted some pictures of me holding her as I read a book to her...love that! So, I'll report later how it goes. Good thing I curled my hair and put on make-up this morning! Tomorrow would've been a different story! ; )
Sicily's transfusion should take around three hours then we can start her first chemo. I think the snow has let up, but it looks awfully cold outside, still! Thanks for all the prayers! I feel calm and relaxed right now!
