"I dont want any more Tylenol or Bactrum or ANYTHING, mommy please!" It is so difficult to hear Autumn scream those words, the agony she is feeling, the frustration with all of this, it seems to unfair! I know life is not fair, we all know that, but when the unfairness is happening to a four year old, it is almost unbearable.
I have been told over and over that this is typical, the fever are a common side effect of the chemo. Her body just doesn't have any juice left to protect itself from anything, even the slightest bacterial infection. We all know how the world is full of those lovely bacteria, our bodies are full of them, some good, some not so good. She is just working overtime right now, trying to bring her own body back to "normal".
We have appreciated the help from EVERYONE, you are all wonderful! I love texting, emails, the fabulous packages, the love, the support, the friendships, it has made what is very painful, a little easier for all. Thank you.
Autumn will be here for a few days minimum, so she won't be able to attend the fundraiser being held this weekend in her honor. I'm glad she really doesn't understand everything that is happening, because there have been many disappointments, not fun for anyone.
