Why do people jump out of planes? - Jemma asked this on our drive to the hospital after we saw a paraglider in the sky.
Yesterday Jemma and I spent the day and night at the hospital. It was a planned visit and the first day in Phase 1B of her treatment plan. I like planned visits much better. We had a very nice day and a sleepless night. Upon arriving her catheter was connected to the IV cart so she could be given fluids and chemo. She felt pretty good during the day so we spent the afternoon crafting in the hospital. I continued working on the hat Jemma designed while she did a paint by number kit and made a pom pom pig.
On Monday the two older kids returned home loaded with treasures. Their new items coupled with the wonderful gifts Jemma received left me with the challenge of finding homes for everything. I spent most of Monday and Tuesday organizing and cleaning out the old to make room for the new. It was probably time we got rid of some of those toys for three year olds anyway. Now I'm feeling caught up and ready to return to the hospital the next four mornings in a row so Jemma can receive treatments. I'm also ready for summer. Hopefully there will be some time to play tennis and go on a few bike rides with the two older children.
