Alice's white counts were 700 today...ANC zero.
Tyler called me tonight and said that Alice really wants to see me. I was just serving the children dinner, so I quickly finished helping them, and rushed to the computer to Skype with her.
Upon calling her she seemed so down. She began to get emotional, I know she is homesick. I can't imagine what might be going through her mind. She must be wondering where her Mom is and why isn't she with me.
After seeing her, I told Tyler..."that's it--I'm going up there and I'm not coming home until she is with me." I know I will feel much better tomorrow when I can be there.
I didn't realize Tyler was filming us on Skype. It breaks my heart to see how emotional she is. She wanted to be happy but was so frustrated that she wasn't with us. We all tried to cheer her up--Matthew has a giant stuffed cat fish and he was pretending that it was eating my head, she laughed then cried. Actually, now that I think about it...I would cry too if a giant cat fish was eating my mom. (a two year old's perspective...should have thought that one through first)
I'm glad we are keeping a record/journal of all this. It's hard to record the sad things but I know it will make us all stronger in years to come. We are kind of journal crazy people. Well I guess I should speak for Tyler, he hasn't missed a day in his personal journal for several years--and I'm sure that he recorded the day he solved the Rubik's cube.
