January 12, 2013- Today was such a wonderful day all around. My stomach has been pretty much settled today. I am still working on strengthening my legs so that they don’t cramp up. Between walking Bryce before he left and walking our hospital wing with David I got a mile in. It does feel good to walk, but I do get tired easily. I have been having light dizzy spells, but nothing to be concerned about because my energy level is ZERO. Although, I do work to save my energy for when Bryce is here!
It feels like there are not enough hours in the day when I’m in here. So far we have only gotten to watch one and a half movies and one TV show. My sleep schedule has started to follow the nurses and PCA’s schedule. I will often wake up before they even come in for blood work, IV, or vitals. All the nurses and PCA’s that I’ve had here have been so extraordinary! I hope that when I do eventually get out of here we can still keep in touch, they are my life savers.
On to my by little man BRYCE! Grampy came by with him today and while at first Mommy felt weak from being slightly dizzy he sure did bring me back to life. We had so much fun with him as always, but today was a special day for us. Grampy brought baby rice cereal for Bryce to try for the first time. At first he was not into trying the baby cereal, so we decided to give him his bottle. He took is bottle well as always and then we waited over an hour and tried the baby cereal again. Clever little Bryce would take a spoon full of baby cereal and then chase it down with his thumb. He did this for a good 5 minutes and then decided he was done with dried up baby cereal all over his hands, face, and bib.
Of course there are some pictures of Bryce being fed baby cereal for the first time and Mommy feeding him a bottle.
Also, I finally got one of my cute headband accessories today from an Etsy.com seller…LOVE IT! (I picked the orange ribbon to represent leukemia)
