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!
