Yesterday we also went to visit a friends house. Adi had a lovely time but I spent the afternoon keeping a very good and understanding friend at arm's length because she had developed a cold overnight and I was worried it might affect Adi's chances of being well enough for her last dose of chemo tomorrow.
We also went to a lovely party today and Adi had the best time ever. We were chatting to another parent who's child has leukemia. They are lovely and, thankfully, their little girl has a curable leukemia. Of course, I was fretting about Adi being in the sun too much.
I don't mean to be killjoy. Really I don't. Adi's had a great weekend - seeing friends, enjoying parties, playing non-stop. I can generally tell when her bloods are up or down. Recently she's unbearably clingy to me and not wanting to see anyone but this weekend she's clearly been feeling better, even asking tonight to see her friends! Today we found out that her neutrophils have made a shock recovery, from 0.8 on Friday to 2 today! This means that she can have her treatment tomorrow. Her last dose of carboplatin! After this it is just two more doses of vincristine at our local hospital and that is the treatment completed. Hopefully, in a few weeks time I will be able to stop glaring at strangers who dare to sneeze in the street, asking our friends to stay away and allow Adi and Asher to leap, splash and swim in every pool from here to Timbuktu!
