61 days since diagnosis
day #3 of current hospital stay
Riker's chemo is well underway. She began day 2 today and seems to be tolerating it ok. Yesterday she was quite grumpy after being sedated for her final lumbar puncture. It does not help that she is also teething. Poor thing. It's hard to believe we've only been doing this for 2 months. I'm starting to feel like and old pro.
Today we wrapped up getting video together for Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Our friends will finish up the editing and application process. Now all we can do is wait and hope. This really would be such an amazing answer to our current problems. However, I don't care what it takes. I will not bring Riker home to this house. If we can build, so be it. If I have to stay in Boston and away from my family for Christmas, so be that.
No matter what the result, I hope it makes itself apparent soon. Jon and I are riding on our last nerve. The stress from everything is causing us to bicker and hurt each other when we don't mean to. Reliving every moment of this ordeal for a video camera hasn't been too much fun, either. I just want to get off this train.
