Leukemia - How is Jemma? - Day 116
Jemma is back in the hospital for a five day planned visit. Yesterday when she arrived she began a high dose of hydrating fluid which she will receive the entire visit. That means lots of pee-pee. Last night we were awake every hour to use the bathroom and I expect that to continue for the next three nights.
She laid down for 1 hour and 45 minutes, but had to sit up when the clowns showed up in our room for a visit. Despite the fact that she ate part of her breakfast laying down, she did end up with a headache in the afternoon.
So needless to say, our physical activity level is pretty low, but we have had a lot of time to work on reading, playing Farkle (thank you Ryan - everyone loves this game), crafts and educational iPad games. Surprisingly enough, time goes by pretty fast in the hospital.
