January 6th, 2013- I think I got a little bit of sleep last night finally. Although, the interruptions still make it hard to feel like I got a full nights rest. I did need another platelet transfusion last night as well as a sodium phosphate IV. They usually draw my blood at night to make sure I am a-okay. I got a little bit of good news, they are going to start drawing my blood only once a day now. I am a little worried about my right calf lately it seems to feel like it wants to cramp up or at times it gives out on me. I hope I don’t wake up in the middle of the night with the cramp!
On another note my hair is coming out in handfuls today. David cut two locks of hair to save in a jar so we can look back at this time and compare my hair when it grows back. I am on the verge of asking the nurses to cut it all off (shave it). David thinks it looks fine still, but I am tired of picking my hair off of everything especially in my bed and on my clothes. Other than my hair and leg today has been a pretty good day!
Grammy and Bryce stopped by for a visit at their usual time, around lunch. Bryce had a new noise to show us. He makes it sound cute, but unfortunately it sounds a lot like his Father’s bad habit of clearing his throat. We read him his usual stories that he absolutely loves and has begun to recognize. I got to feed him his bottle this afternoon and feeding him (even if it’s a bottle) soothes me. Being able to have him so close in a position so familiar is just the most amazing feeling for me. He is my special little boy and will always and forever be in my heart!!
