Abby's Journey Archive

Still here

We'll be in for a while. Abby still needs the morphine and isn't able to eat or drink much. There is still no sign of infection, but her fever keeps rising a few times a day.

Right now we're praying that her body will start to recover. Her counts are at zero. We are told that as soon as her counts start to rise, the mucocitis (mouth and throat sores) will start to heal and she'll feel lots better.

On a lighter note, we're in the "hair collecting" stage again. Abby realized her hair was starting to fall out yesterday and requested a baggie to hold it. She was sad, but said, "at least now I don't have to wash it".
