Saturday and Sunday were pretty hard because Abigial doesn't do well after the lumbar punctures anyway, but the biopsies seem to really bother her. In fact neither she or either of her parents got any sleep at all on Saturday night. It was really miserable. Luckily, her initial treatment phase called "induction" is over now. We are being given a week off. Fortunately, they are changing our chemo day, so we get 10 days off. As luck would have it, those days coincide with my kids' spring break.
The icing on the cake is that her "blood numbers" as we have come to call them, look fantastic! All but one of the values looks normal. Meaning that they are just like our other kids right now. We can go out in public and take her places again.
