Any picture I get with my girls together looks like this, Jillian LOVES her little sister but will NOT hold her, so I totally take what I can get. And I LOVE IT! My girls are pretty cute, Boogey (Jill) and Punky (Mallory) are their NEW nicknames! Yes I am awesome like that, if you're around me enough eventually I will come up with a GREAT nickname for you too!
Tomorrow starts Chemo, 3 day hospital stay. Hopefully we will be home on Christmas Eve. I have google'd and yahoo'd what to expect with a baby on chemo but there is absolutely no information about it. And they give you a general idea nausea (feeling sick), vomiting (being sick), diarrhea, hair loss, increased risk of infection, bruising and bleeding, mouth sores, and tiredness. But what does this mean for a baby? How does this affect a baby? I am not sure what to expect, but 1 thing we know for sure our girl with the cutest little tuft of hair is getting a hair cut so we can save her baby curl before its gone. I pray that God hold her in his hands through this, keep her and our family strong.
One thing Ryan and I have discussed is that we will be putting ourselves in type of therapy. This blog has amazingly helped us so much but there are going to be many years once this is said and done that we will still need help coping. We are open to discussing our situation with everyone, but we think this will give us a HUGE step in the right direction. It will be nice to just have a random stranger to dump all of our feelings and emotions on.
Someday we will be the rocks for another family and it gives me hope.
This Friday My little Miss Malibu will be 3 MONTHS OLD! Crazy, time just flew by (thats most likely due to spending so much time in the hospital and at doctors apts)
