We took our daughter up to the Children's Hospital today for her audiology testing and blood work. Her hearing came back within the normal range. Her really high pitch and really low pitch is down from last time it is on the border for the lowest of normal ranges, but those pitches are ones that we don't usually hear anyway so not a big deal. The audiologist was very impressed with her. She couldn't believe how well she did with her testing for how old she is, our little girl was very patient and only pulled the ear bud out twice! Way to go baby! Her blood work came back and her counts look really good (good enough to head in for her 4th chemo round this Sunday). So, we are planning to go in Sunday morning (unless her cold she has turned into a secondary infection before then and she fevers). So everyone.....cross your fingers or say a prayer. Her cold is still lingering and doesn't seem to be getting better, but she isn't fevering, which is great. It looks like we will be home for Christmas, Hooray!!! While we were in clinic waiting, the nurse brought us in a Christmas stocking full of small toys and goodies for her. The stockings were donated by one of the construction crews working on the hospital. People never cease to amaze me with their generosity. Our daughter was excited to play with the little baby doll that was in the stocking. The nurses had all those that received a stocking sign a thank you card to give back to the construction crew and as a I was thinking about what to write on the card I read some of the other comments. The kids that wrote their own thank yous touched my heart. They go through such difficult stuff while at the hospital and it is nice for them to have generous people bring a smile to their faces. There are so many good people in the world. I hope that in the future I will be able to return the favor to many others that go through similar trials/sickness in their lives.
