4/22/05 PM

7:15 PM: It's been a good day. I managed to get a lot of work done this afternoon (and consequently, Sophie watched a fair amount of TV, but she also wandered away and played with toys). Today we pulled out of her bookshelf every book about numbers or counting. She didn't read all of them, but she enjoyed the hunt. Randall came home mid-afternoon while Sophie was napping (2.5 hours today!). When she realized he was home, she sidled over to him and said, "I'm so glad you're here." He said it was very sweet.

We're winding down from a nice family dinner (I made spaghetti carbonara), and the girls are playing together (with only minimal yelling). Sophie has taken nearly all of her medicine for today. I'm waiting for the Zofran to have time to take effect before administering her chemo. It's all ready to go, and she's excited, because we're doing a cap change (we do that twice a week on Mondays and Fridays). Her chest looks a little better today, but it will take some time to heal. She just came up and give me a big hug and said it's time to stop playing with the computer, so I guess I'd better wrap up!
