Angelina turned two today! And just a few days before, Angelina’s numbers were up at the clinic so her doctor gave the thumbs up to throw her a birthday party. We got together yesterday (Sunday) with just the bare minimum of family and everyone present had their flu shot per Angelina’s doctor.
It was great – everything went better than could be expected, despite Angelina’s running nose. She was in a good mood most of the day, but had her moments of frustration. The kids were ESTATIC to see her – it was their first real visit with her since the diagnosis in March. They saw her twice since then, but in short intervals without interaction. In fact, they agreed to flu shots so they could see her, even though Priscilla wigged out when it was her turn.
As you can see, Angelina has lost all of her hair but a few strands here and there. She’s still absolutely gorgeous, and her smile steals my heart!
If her treatment continues on track without any delays from low numbers, she will be in the maintenance phase around Thanksgiving.
Angelina will most likely be in the hospital overnight this week to ensure she’s hydrated enough for her next spinal and chemo round.
Thank you for the warm wishes, inquiries and prayers everyone. And a HUGE thank you to Amy VanLacken of www.adorablelawngreetings.com. She decorated the lawn for Angelina’s birthday though the weekend out of the goodness of her heart! Thank you again Amy. It’s people like you that put a smile on Tammy and Nick’s face.
