Baby On Time?

posted Apr 28, 2013, 7:27 AM by FightingFor Mya

Today is Sunday, April 28th. This is the due date that was given to me when I found out I was pregnant. Maybe the baby will arrive today? Maybe she wanted to hold out until when she was supposed to arrive? I don't know, we shall see.... I have a doctor's appt. on Monday, we will see what they tell me they want to do. My doctor did say that he wouldn't let me go too far over my due date, so I'm sure the baby will be here sometime within the next week!

Ray is with Mya at Children's. He says that she is handling the 5th round really well. Mya should clear the first chemo drug today and they will move on to the 2nd either tonight or tomorrow. This will put her on track for a discharge (if everything looks good and goes well) sometime at the end of this week, either Thursday or Friday.

They had a roommate, but they were able to go home. The roommate had been at the hospital for 6 weeks! Ugh! Ray said that she looked almost identical to Mya! Within a few months of the same age, both going through chemo; the nurses were always double-checking on which bed the right child was in! :) Ray said that they were pretty good as roommates go.

I hope they both have a good day today and Ray is able to get Mya up and walking around. That is always my goal when she is in the hospital. I think it helps so much if she can get out of bed, walk the floor, maybe make it to the playroom....

Maybe next time I post, we will have a new addition to the family?? :)
