May 28th, 2011. Day +78   12 comments

Not too much new to report here.  Charlotte is still doing pretty well, though her appetite and thirst have really decreased over the last week.  We think that is common because of the tapering of the steroids.  We essentially cut her dose in half this last week and that is a pretty big change.

We are spending the weekend preparing for Charlotte’s 3rd birthday on Tuesday!  We are going to have a little B-Day party with the Grandparents on Monday so she can have some fun and cake, etc.  Tuesday happens to be one of her clinic days where she will need the monthly dose of pentamidine and IVIG so we will be there a few hours.  We hope Toys-R-Us is slow tomorrow because we would like to take CJ shopping to pick out lots of toys to donate to the hospital for the several children there right now going through bone marrow transplant.  We know how wonderful it was to have a full wagon of toys waiting for Charlotte when she was admitted so we would love the chance to lighten the load of other parents going through this time.  We are also planning a return visit to the 4th floor to see the awesome nurses and doctors again!  We hope they haven’t forgotten little Charlotte and they would probably like to see Molly all grown up now.
