Deep Breath

I can't convey in words how full the last week has been.  The move has gone pretty well so far; the movers did an excellent job and took much better care of our belongings than we would have.  Our new place is about the same square footage as our house (fingers crossed for it to sell quickly), but a different layout, so I am having to rethink how to arrange everything.  But, we are settling in.  My aunt Sally is here visiting, helping with kids & unpacking, and providing good company.  We are making progress unpacking boxes (and boy are there a lot of boxes to unpack).  It is wonderful to have the market just a short walk away (less than 2 blocks) and the pool just 3 blocks away. 

We went back to Augusta on Sunday and stayed overnight with our good friends for Mollie's appointment on Monday.  Mollie and Lucy had a great time with Isabella- it was the perfect way to prepare for a week of steroids.  Mollie received her monthly chemo and her counts were perfect again:  ANC is 1800!  She is tolerating the steroids pretty well this week.  The evenings are rough because she is tired and hungry; she wants to eat, but she can't make up her mind about what she wants.

Last night Lucy spiked a fever of 103.7.  She was feverish all night and into this morning, but it seems like she is recovering now.  I don't handle fevers very well any more- I want a CBC. Stat!  Now we just have to hope that the rest of us, especially Mollie and Liam, don't come down with the same thing because we are headed out for vacation on Saturday.
