Delaney started another chapter today. She continues her story at UCSF, for bone marrow transplant. The day began as usual, early, quick, and a few steps behind. Delaney was so happy today, it is so hard to see her doing so well and look so good just to know what will happen in the following days. The plan is for Delaney to be admitted at 11 am, so we were packed and ready to go by 8am. We headed out and no sooner than 20 minutes on the road we received a call that UCSF was not ready for Delaney we would have to wait until noon for a call for a time that she would be admitted this afternoon. Hurry up and wait. But UCSF had a busy night with admissions. We received the call around noon and was told that Delaney could be admitted at 4 pm. Delaney did great with the adjustment of time and just wanted to play with brother. It was more difficult leaving home this time because like we have said little brother is used to have his Mommy, Daddy and sister at home, and when we left, and for a majority of the afternoon he walked around the house holding aunt Rachael's finger asking for Mommy and Daddy. It is very tough in both ends, home and hospital. It has been quite a process getting settled, on admission Delaney has already has 2 x rays, blood draw, NG tube adjustment, and has started IV hydration. It was challenging getting Delaney settled in, she now is saying she wants to go home, this is new for Mommy and Daddy and hard to explain to Delaney. We will know the plan on Friday for chemotherapy and more of the plan in general but we will not know how things will go, it is the constant unknown that can wear Mommy and Daddy down, but we interact with Delaney and see her love and we just focus on her. She is fierce, game face is on, she wants to get home to brother on Christmas Eve, and put out cookies and milk out for Santa with him and open up presents Christmas morning. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support. As always.....GO TEAM DELANEY!!!!
