A successful clinic day!

Can you see? Yes, Emily weighed in at 18.6 kilograms today. This is DEFINITELY UP from her 16.8 kilograms 2 weeks ago. She gained almost 5 pounds!!!(Why isn't it a good thing when I gain 5 lbs?)

Emily didn't care, she just knew she was HUNGRY! I can't believe how many times I have heard these words come out of her mouth during the last 2 weeks. She told someone yesterday that her favorite part about being home schooled is that she can EAT! It is VERY strange to hear our daughter who usually couldn't care less about food to be almost obsessed about what she wants to eat next.

I have cut back the meds a little in hopes it will even things out. Regardless, she is finally making progress. I can honestly say that I really can see a difference in her energy level....it proves how important it is to get enough calories if you want to feel your best!

As for the rest of our clinic visit, everything is going fantastic! WBC count is 4.6 and her ANC count is 2.8. They are both higher than last time so we are very happy with her progress!

Well I've got to run, Emily is...yep, you guessed it...HUNGRY!!!
