No More Chemo

Today was momentous - the nurse took down Averi's last bag of chemo!  Of course we still have to stick around until her counts do their thing, but there will be no more pumping poison into my baby's heart.
(Yes, we did take a picture of the bag coming down, special blue gloves and all.)

Averi seems to be doing well so far.  She did need a blood transfusion yesterday, which always makes her happier and more energetic.  Unfortunately, my grandma donated blood last week and it hasn't gotten to the hospital yet so Averi had to get someone else's blood.  Either way, it means that her body is doing what it's supposed to after receiving chemo and we are on the right track.

This makes me so happy! I needed to comment because I love you and because I've been thinking about you and to make you knew it was me on you tracker thing, since it doesn't say Portugal it's says another base in Europe. It's just me waiting waiting on this baby, quite impatiently o might add. Inducement is set for the 25 though so that's good. I lve you and miss you so much!
