It was great to see that both Natalie and Alice had a good day for the most part. Today Natalie's ANC dropped to 500. Once again, this is normal when taken off the bone marrow medicine. She received more red blood cells today. It seemed to go well. Natalie had a difficult time later in the evening with her stomach again.
Alice just cooperates so well--she will even return Natalie's iPad to her when she asks for it back. After sometime of Natalie using her iPad, Alice began to ask for "Natalie's Pad Pad", I dialed Natalie's room number and gave Alice the phone. She asked Natalie if she could have her iPad, so Tyler delivered the iPad to Alice's room--I wish I would have recorded her reaction. She giggled and cheered to see the iPad, then she thanked Natalie on the phone and began to surf the iPad for her favorite apps.
That little piece of technology has been quite a blessing. The trick will be convincing Alice when we are home that a two year old does not in fact need an iPad.
