So thanks to Facebook, I found out that today is national cancer awareness day. Which was quite fitting because Cora and I spent the day at Dayton Children's for her scheduled infusion. When we walk into the hospital, she covers her port with her hand because she knows what is coming. Aside from the initial poke and her hatred of the blood pressure cuff attached to her which inflates every 30 minutes, she does really well. We read, watch shows, eat, color, sleep.....and five hours later we are exhausted (surprisingly) and head for home. The clinic has a program where the kids can add specific beads to a necklace every time they get chemo, have therapy, get hospitalized, have surgery, and so on. Cora loves her necklace which is getting quite full. She is so amazing! Such a funny, loving, silly girl.
