Tuesday April 20, 2010. Today @ 2:00 is my first clinic appointment after finishing my Cancer Treatment. My line is all gone and my little hole in my chest is all better now.

Today I have to be so brave. They are going to poke my arm to get the blood they need to see where my counts are at. My mom has been talking to me about this a whole bunch. It makes me scared, but she always tells me, "lets not think about it right now."

My mom took me to Sam's club before we go to Salt Lake. I want to bring all my friends at the hospital some treats. We are going to give a bunch more tiles too. We had to get a wagon to put everything in it. I picked out skittles and starbursts.

I was super brave. I only cried a little bit. I sat on my moms lap while another lady held Sunnie. I like to squeeze my Moms hand when I get afraid. Now it's all over for this month. We had to hurry upstairs to my clinic appointment. My Dr. came in and checked me out. I have a lot of energy and she said I looked and sounded great. They printed off my labs for my Mom. She says that I am back to normal right now. So I don't have to wear my mask anymore when I go places. Yeah!!!

I got to see some of my really special friends today. It makes me sad that they have to be in the hospital still. My Mom told me that a few of them are really sick. This made me sad. While we drove home I sang songs about my friends. Songs about how much I miss the ones that are gone from us. Songs about the ones that are so sick and fighting as hard as they can. Songs about the ones that are ready to leave the hospital soon. Me and my Mom talk about a lot of things. Today it was about my friends. I love all of them.

My mom is so crazy all the time that she forgot to remember to take the camera. So I don't have any pictures from today. But it's okay, I'm not mad.

We stopped at my Grandma Jeanne's before we came home and ate some dinner. Pretty soon I can come down again and go swimming. There just wasn't enough time today.

Today was a long day. We spent a lot of time in the truck. I'm glad that Sunnie and my Mom came with me. I'm mostly glad that I don't have to stay at the hospital anymore. My mom says she is so glad that my numbers are right where they should be. They better stay that way too!

Can you see it. It's growing back like a weed!

There's a few patchy spots, but I'm not a cue ball anymore!

This is what my head looked like only one month ago!

....almost done!

Friday April 2, 2010

This is the day that I get my Central Line taken out. Yep, it's time to remove it completely! This is me and my mom in the way cool hotel room we stayed in the night before. This is a picture of the last time I have to get my line flushed. We did this early in the morning, but I can't go to
the hospital until 1:00 for my little surgery today. I am so excited to be line free!

My Mom and Dad both came with me. I had to not eat anything all morning long. I have a little cold right now too and I keep coughing. My throat wanted to just have one little drink of water, but my parents wouldn't let me until after my surgery! I'm going to tell the Doctor to hurry really super fast. My nurse got me a bag of pretzels and a little bottle of water waiting for me when I got all done.

I had to wait for a little while in a room before it was my turn. We played Hide and Seek a whole bunch and I watched Garfield on the TV. I was not scared at all, just really hungry and thirsty. When it was my turn to go my Mom took me back. She held me while the Dr. put the sleeping medicine into my line. I really don't remember what happened after that. My mom told me that I made a really long sigh when I fell asleep. She said I sounded really cute.

It didn't take very long at all. When I started to wake up I didn't see my mom anywhere. I got really scared. My Dad was there to hold me, but I really wanted to see my Mom. The nurse had to page her on the loud microphone because she was upstairs visiting some of her friends. When she came down to hold me I was happy. I was kinda ornery. I don't like waking up from the anesthesia they give me. All I wanted to do was to go home. And so we did. And look at me...I'm line free!!!

They put this bandage on me and I have to keep it here for two whole days. I can't get it wet either. When I take it off then I can get it wet a little. When it is all healed up I will be able to go swimming and lay down all the way in the water when I take a bath. Yeah!

I'm getting a new puppy today. He is an English Springer Spaniel Liver and White dog. I decided to name him Fezter Wezter 2. My Dad likes the name Fez so I just made it sound cooler. He made me feel so happy today.

Today is the final day of all of my Treatment! I have to go to the Clinic at the hospital every month to get looked at and get my blood drawn.
I have to get my arm poked to get my blood drawn because I don't have my line anymore. I know it will hurt really badly because I had to do it that way before they got my line put in. I think I might cry, but I'm going to try to be brave!

I love being at my home. I get to be with my whole family. My Dad still has to work all day, but I get to play with my puppy and my sisters, Mayzi and Sunnie. We like to be together. We like to play games. I like Hide and Seek and Don't you dare get off the bed! My family is the coolest ever!
