Since we got out of the hospital, we've just been enjoying our time together during the holidays. It's so good to finally have all of us under one roof again! Rachel continues to improve slowly. Nausea is still her worst enemy--it comes and goes. We consider it a good day if she makes it through without throwing up at all. The dr. says that bone marrow transplants really mess up your stomach--especially in teens. So we keep hoping this is all "normal".
We can't wait until she has an appetite again! It has really been a struggle for her to eat. Thank goodness she is still getting TPN (IV nutrition) at night. Even though the progress is slow, we are still so grateful that she is home with us. We have really been able to focus on what is most important this holiday--family, serving each other, and remembering the birth of our Savior--the greatest gift of all.
Thanks to all of you who continue to shower us with kindness, prayers, smiles, hugs, and hope! We hope that 2011 brings joy and good health to everyone.
