Home Again, Home Again, Jiggitty Jig
Sierra was released from the hospital on Tuesday, just 5 short days after having brain surgery. She never ceases to amaze me, I am constantly blown away by her warrior spirit. She has been doing so well since surgery. As soon as she was allowed to eat again after having her breathing tube removed, her attitude did 180 turn. She had been so frustrated from being on steroids and being starving, but once she was able to eat her beloved KFC drumsticks her mood changed immensely. We spent 3 days on the oncology floor, playing Wii, having lots of visitor and doing crafts. She was so happy to be back in familiar territory, and although I hate for her to have to go through more rough treatment, I am glad we will be back with the doctors and nurses that have taken such amazing care of us and have become a second family to us. Next week we will find out the plan for Sierra's new course of treatment, which will include chemo again and radiation to the tumor site in her head. Radiation will be a new experience for Sierra, so i hope it goes smoothly. Thank you to everyone for all of the love and prayers over the last year and especially in the last 2 weeks. I know we are strengthened by them, and that Sierra is doing so well because she has so much love and support from so many people. Pics to come soon.
