After treatment, Abby woke up and was a grump. Her latest thing is that she doesn't want anyone to look at her, except her daddy. She tells Grandpa and Mommy to look away from her until she wakes up enough to start being in a good mood. We then went to breakfast in the Children's Hospital cafeteria because Abby had to give blood at 10:00 am. So we all had breakfast, and then Abby finally started to wake up. We then went upstairs and received her second weeks worth of her chemo and gave them some blood. We then had to tell Grandpa goodbye for now and started the drive home.
Maegan and I picked Mary-Beth up from school, just the two of us, and took her out for some alone time with us. She was very excited and showed us the stick bug that her and Grandpa Miller had found that she brought in for show-and-tell. It was pretty cool. We told Mary-Beth that we wanted to take her to the movies, and she was ecstatic! We went and watched Ramona and Beezus and I watched a little girl almost single handedly devour 1 1/2 buckets of popcorn by herself! Towards the end of the movie, somebody -maybe me- started a little popcorn war with Mary-Beth and Mommy. It was fun and we all had a great time. We then took Mary-Beth home so she could see her sisters who were very excited to see her. We brought them all home and put the little girls in bed. It was a good day.
Today seemed to be a run-run-run day!.Maegan and her mom took Abby to do some running, while I took Mary-Beth and Emily running some more. We took care of some chores at the bank and then ran by the Police Station. We then met Maegan and Abby at the Mongolian Grill for lunch where we watched Mary-Beth and Abby eat half of the buffet by themselves. From there we went for more running. I took only Emily with me while Mary-Beth, Abby, Maegan, and Grandma went to get their nails done.
Emily and I went over to Plaza Tire where we had to get 2 new tires for the van so we don't have a blow-out on the way to St. Louis. Emily and I then took the partially newly "shoe'd" van to get a good washing, it was filthy. When we got home, Abby was napping and Mary-Beth and Emily went out and played in the sprinklers while I cleaned out the inside of the van. Their fingernails looked amazing. I'll get a picture of them tomorrow and post them.
