5:00 PM: It's been another good day. One of Sophie's former day care teachers (Ms. Maria) came to stay with her today while Randall, Susan, and Elisabeth went to church. Tiffney did a great job preaching, and we all enjoyed the support of our church family. We had naps this afternoon (some of us did, at least), played outside, and we're now working on dinner. Randall's leading a bible study at church tonight, and Elisabeth wanted to go. We're thinking about taking Sophie too and have Susan hold her away from the group. Everyone really wants to see Sophie, and Susan has been missing bible study.
We're looking forward to seeing tomorrow's blood test results. If her white count is high enough, we'll start chemo again on Tuesday. One of the medicines can cause damage to the bladder, so she has to be extra-hydrated before they inject it into her line, and then they have to continue pumping fluids after the medicine is done. It's an all-day affair. Randall is handling his first funeral on Tuesday afternoon, so if we do head to the clinic, he'll take her in the morning, and then we'll switch off.
We're going to try activating the "comments" feature of this weblog. This allows visitors to leave comments in response to entries. We're hoping this will allow Sophie's friends and family to communicate more easily with us and each other.
