Sometimes words aren’t necessary…
A happy pretty (anticipatory) smile. She looks gorgeous here and has more color in her cheeks than I’ve seen in a while. She got the chemo hours before this shot, and had no side effects since it was the mildest form of the three drugs she’s been getting. We’re watching for hair loss closely now (none yet).
So…we are all home now! We had dinner together as a family (Molly, thank you for the delicious baked macaroni and cheese). We are enjoying a reprieve from the hospital as long as Ana continues to eat and does not run a fever. The Dooleys, collectively, are on pause. Well, not entirely – Ana will get another outpatient infusion next Tuesday then she will be admitted for the full VAC the following week.
She is so happy to be home. It almost feels…dare I say…normal!
