Last night and today has gone very well. Delaney finally had a day where she did not vomit. This makes everyone happy, she was able to get formula and liquids and keep them down so her body could absorb them. It is a big deal when the only formula and liquids she gets adds up to about half of her daily caloric intake, which is around 1200. But Delaney has had a great day full of rest and playing with brother, Mommy, Grandma, and Daddy. This is a day she needed to break the cycle of nausea, vomiting, and just being sick. We hope and we know Delaney will work hard to keep this good momentum going forward. Tomorrow Daddy will do a blood draw early in the morning, so we can get Delaney's blood counts and see if she will need a transfusion. Then Delaney has a hearing appointment to make sure there is no damage done to her hearing from the chemotherapy she is receiving. Depending on the results from the blood draw it will determine weather she will need a transfusion. UCSF has an appointment already scheduled just in case she does need blood or platelets or both. It will be a busy day tomorrow. The pace has not let up for one brief second, but just as Delaney does, she keeps her head down and fiercely pushes on one day at a time. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support. As always.....GO TEAM DELANEY!
