Home Sweet Home
Another short one, as there has been a lot going on and I am still exhausted. We are glad to be home. Saoirse's chemo was started on Monday, and she took it in stride. She was still a bit cranky from surgery, and so this round seemed a bit harder for her. She has been having some mood swings, but I think some of that is from the steroids, and some is from frustration of being tired and achy. We were discharged Thursday night, and after a crazy time with prescription organizing, Saoirse was happy to be going home. She chatted me up the whole ride home, and ran for Fallon as soon as we got in the door. Sadly, this little run made her trip and fall twice, and she went to bed soon after. There will be a lot of adjustments over the next few weeks. She is learning to live on steroids, and we are learning to live with her on steroids. We are also starting to plan for the next phase of treatment. We are doing a lot of research, and are looking into all our options. More to come, and hopefully tonight we will get a good night's sleep.
