We just picked Mollie up after her week at camp. She had a fabulous time! According to her, she swam, went down the waterslide, caught 4 fish, panned for gold, rode a horse, did ceramics, archery, clay, make-overs, went canoeing, hiking (and saw a snake), rockclimbing, had a pajama party, went to a dance with a DJ, dressed in a freaky outfit for carnival.... She also played glow-in-the-dark golf, BINGO, and did gymnastics. Apparently the boys messed up the girls' cabin with string so they got them back by throwing bucketfulls of (fake) bugs in their cabin!!
She is completely worn out and a bit emotional; she's alternating between being very eager to tell us what she did and teary because she feels different than before she left. I'm hoping she will nap/rest this afternoon! She was happy to see us and ecstatic to see Lucy! She couldn't stop hugging her and holding her hand. So sweet.
Update: she's now feeling a lot less "different" and seems to be just fine.
It's nice to have her back!
Mollie is away at camp! She could hardly contain her excitement yesterday when we took her to the camp check-in. I wonder what she's doing right now? I hope the counselors take some pictures, otherwise I'm sure we'll have no idea what they really did!
We had a little scare Sat. night. I was getting Mollie's medicine ready for camp, so I decided to give her her evening medication (just an antibiotic since she's off chemo right now) and get her morning medication ready. As I was doing this, Matt brought Lucy in for a good night kiss. When I turned back to what I was doing, something seemed amiss. I asked Mollie if she took her medicine already and she proudly said, "Yep! Both of them." Oh, no! Both of them- she was only supposed to take one.
I got on the phone with Dr. Vega and it turns out it wasn't such a big deal. We just held her antibiotic doses for Sunday. This mistake was simply caused by a change in routine. Usually, we carry Mollie's meds to her after she is already in bed, because she needs to take the chemo more than two hours after she eats. Since she is off chemo right now and getting ready for camp, we didn't do the routine.
By my calculation, we have given Mollie >1500 pills in the last year! This is the first mistake- kind of amazing, actually.
Guess who's already missing her big sister?
