Rachel is making great progress this week as far as eating is concerned! She has only thrown up once this whole week! She has started requesting things randomly when they sound good. Some of these include pasta fagioli soup, chips and salsa, and tuna fish sandwiches. (No--not all at the same time! That would be disgusting!)
She still has no desire for desserts--although her dad makes a mean chocolate shake that he's talked her into a few times. We can tell that she is feeling better overall. Her clinic visits have gone well. (We go up once a week to Primary's.) One thing that has the doctors a bit worried is that her platelet counts keep dropping. They should be just going up at this point. So we'll hope they've turned around when we go up on Wednesday.
She's been excited to see her hair coming back in nicely along with eyebrows and eyelashes! Thanks to all of you still checking the blog! I know we've been boring lately...but we've decided in the cancer world---BORING IS A GOOD THING!
