Sno & Chemo

Yesterday we ventured out into this winter wonderland for Lila's big round of chemo...

(This is Franklin Road.)

We left after lunch and made it just fine! The weather made for a very quiet clinic. We are realizing how fortunate we are that we live just down the road from a world-class children's hospital. Our nurse told us there was a patient there that morning that had come from Johnson City, which is about four hours away. We are so grateful that we are only 15 minutes away! Or 30 minutes if there has been a snow storm. 
We managed to make it out in two hours, which is really quick. Lila received three chemo drugs plus steroids and some fluids. She was really hyper last night from the steroids and kept saying, "I'm happy! I'm happy!" 
We won't see the low point from this cycle of chemo until 11-14 days out. However, I can tell that she is already a little fatigued because she took a nap today. This is the first nap she's had since coming home from the hospital. I also got a nap, which made it a wonderful day.
