sounds like a good outcome for your job. Takes away the pressure to go back, be responsible etc ... but hopefully they will make something available for you when you are ready to go back.
Glad to here that the little one is responding. Its so tough
Poor DD, we are back in hospital again. We came home on Sunday after being here all last week, but only lasted until today. They said it's very common to need to come back in due to side effects so I'm not really shocked...just disappointed that we are back. DD vomited yesterday and had trouble keeping fluids down overnight, and she's in pain with ulcers and a sore tummy (could also be ulcers which is common). All very normal, but nonetheless horrid.
She's being so brave though, I'm so proud of her ❤️
I'm so sorry to hear she isn't feeling good, it's going to be a roller coaster, it would break my heart seeing her having symptoms from bloody chemo treatment (((( hugs )))) thinking of you guys xxx
Oh god Hun, my DD is the same age and I cannot even bear to really think about going through that with her, it's too painful.
You know it's what she needs to get better but she is just a baby it's so cruel.
I know you have probably heard it over and over but you must take care of yourself too, get rest, do the small things that you like to do to relax. I know you have a good family and partner, lean on them.
It's far too easy to forget to look after yourself in this situation. I find eating the hardest thing. Like this morning I never got to eat breakfast. As soon as I got out of bed I was dealing with DD, then the at-home nurse got there, then I rang the hospital and they said come in so I got ready and drove here....then I finally went to get something at about 2pm.
I imagine it's like torture watching your little girl go through this, and hard to explain that you know she's feeling so sick but it's making her better.
Maybe put little snacks in your hand bag, when you realise you haven't eaten in a while, munch on something from there.
Hollywood, for you and your brave girl.
