March 9th Wednesday: We made it home!


Yolanda came for the last day of radiation, her she is with one of our nurses.
 Just a little note to say that we are home and finished up radiation.

Charlotte is doing pretty good so far. Her weight is still low, but not as low as we have seen it go. It is still a full time job for us to try and get a few calories in each day. She is so picky and fickle with what she will eat, no more KD, right now its all about pineapple, Parmesan cheese and pickles. Basically we parade through the cupboards and fridge and ask, "will you eat this?" Then she shakes her head no, and we move on to the next item. When we get to something that is someones favourite (pickled banana peppers for example) she will smile and say "no, Daddies." She loves to name who's is who's right now.

She is not as tired as we were expecting, although that could come in the next two to six weeks. Most of the side effects, we were told, will be at their worst after treatments have ended.

Last treatment.

Charlottes radiation tech ladies.

Pink is the field that they were targeting with the radiation.

Yolanda even got in on the presents! Both the girls were spoiled.

We are sticking pretty close to home, trying to get back into a schedule for now. Its so nice to be home, although we are not quite sure what to do with ourselves. We are hoping to get some of the renovations finished in the basement... we started fixing up the mess that last summers flooding caused back in January only to have to leave in the middle of it all when her tumour came back... time to pick up the hammers again.

Charlotte's next MRI will be the beginning of April. It might give us a little direction as to the next stages of this journey. At least we can concentrate on something different for a few weeks.

Thank you so much to everyone who has been supporting us during this journey. Prayers, financial help and encouragements are all very appreciated.
