So tomorrow is day Zero and she will be receiving her transplant via IV infusion. It is a one time infusion and we will hope and pray for good engraftment and minimal side effects from the Chemotherapy. From what we understand, days ~5 through 20 are the hardest, give or take.
Now that she is so interested in things, I am grabbing more and more toys for her! I can't resist. I went shopping while Chloe was attending Blessing Place (Stefan slept in the car, poor thing). I went at a fancy baby store in a little mall which, by the way, didn't look like much but was full of stores like Pendelton, Louis Vuitton, TIFFANY. Anyhow, we can't afford a lot right now, but I ended up splurging on this $14.00 little rattle. The sales lady said proudly that is was a "Blabla", but that meant nothing to me. It is a soft, sweet cow holding a yellow flower and it rattles. That was all I needed to know. And Elle did love it, she actually held it in her little mittened hands and lifted it up and down and smiled big at it. Worth every penny.
One of Elle's biggest fans here had a baby yesterday I believe. He is a healthy baby boy named Isaiah and we are so happy for her.

So we I am off to put Chloe to bed, then do Elle's dressings, then we all try to rest.
