We were able to avoid the hospital last night. For those of you that saw it on Facebook, thanks for your positive thoughts and prayers! It is always comforting to know that Cecylia has a big cheering section :) We gave her some Motrin at 9 p.m. and had to wait four hours to check her temperature. We checked it at 1 a.m. and it as totally normal. Normally, cancer patients cannot get Motrin, but since the pediatric oncologist on-call was the one that had been with us on the hospital, he knew that all her bloodwork showed she could tolerate it, and that her fevers react much more quickly to Motrin than Tylenol. She woke up this morning with a normal temperature, as well. We are all very happy we got to stay home last night. I hope and pray we have an I uneventful day. Tomorrow are cardiology and chemo appointments – wish us luck!  Ainsley, by the way, is being a really helpful little sister. She is always trying to help Cecylia any way she can (picking things up that she’s dropped, kissing her, rubbing her tummy). Sometimes, Cecylia isn’t wanting this help and it leads to little diagreements. I never thought I would be so happy to here their little arguments. “I want to help you, Cecylia” and “I don’t want your help Ainsley” is now music to my ears! I will let you all know how tomorrow goes, I am praying that the struggle with these fevers stays away and that it isn’t exacerbated by he chemo.
