Happy Chemo Tuesday Team Princess Maggie!! I slept in until 11:00! So I ordered lunch for my breakfast 🙂 Chemo went well yesterday. My doctors have decided to cut one of my chemo therapies in half since my body has had such a hard time recovering from it. As long as everything goes well I’ll have chemo today and tomorrow evening and then I’ll get to go home! Thank you all for your prayers!!
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
My family and I had a great time at the shekinah festival today!! It was so nice to get to play out in the sunshine and be around other kids my age! I enjoyed doing sand art, getting my face painted, riding the barrel train, and playing on the bounce house. Also, my doctors said that my counts on friday looked good enough that I should hopefully be able to start chemo this monday!! We will get to stay at ronald mcdonald’s house on sunday night because I have to be at the hospital at 6 in the morning to start drinking the contrast for my CT scans at 8. I am being sedated for these scans so that they can get a good picture. They will be doing three scans: one of my chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Please pray that the doctors see what they need to see and that no new tumors have grown 🙂
I have good news and bad news. The good news is I don’t have chemo this week. The bad news is I can’t have chemo this week. I am grateful I get to stay home, and am trusting God that this is what is best for my body this week. Please pray that my platelet counts will come up enough by next Monday that I can have my 5 days of chemo.
On another good note I have 2 new pets!! They are crickets, and I named them aurora and rapunzel! I am hoping when I am finished with my chemo (hopefully by the end of the year or maybe next spring) I can get my very own puppy! She will be a sheltie and I will name her aurora angel.
Thank you for checking in on me and for your prayers!!
We found out yesterday that my ANC (a measurement of my immune system) is super low even though I have been getting neupogen shots. So today I have been playing inside and taking if easy. Sometimes I get frustrated when I can’t play with my friends and go places they go, but I know it’s for the best. Please ask God that the shots I’m getting will work well and that my hemoglobin comes back up! Also pray for my great mamaw Lyon and my friend Addie as they recover in the hospital from their surgeries. I would like to thank God that our friend came and fixed our air conditioning this week because it was SO hot! Also that my online christian school gave me 3 scholarships so that my mommy and daddy won’t have to pay very much for my tuition! I love you all!! -Maggie
So after 6 days of being in the hospital for chemo treatments, I finally get to go home!! Boy am I tired. Please pray that my platelet count recovers better before my next chemo (this past time it took 3 whole weeks and 3 blood product transfusions!). Also, that I won’t be too nauseous. I am looking forward to playing with my brothers and getting to sleep in my own bed. Thank you so much for your support with my gamerosity campaign!! I can’t wait to see what my surprise is!
