Chemo #1 and photo of the day for 5th 6th and 7th

Emma had her port inserted yesterday and started her first chemo today.
Day 5
We saw some Monster Trucks on the back of a truck and the children just loved them

Day 6
(a port similar to the one that was inserted into Emma's chest)
Day 7
This was the view from Emma's bed in hospital.  The wards are all painted differently and the children love it

I just had to share this photo as well.  This is Ally and Ally has been with us since Emma was 6 months old.  Emma has dragged this baby around with her ever since she was about one.  Wherever Emma goes, Ally goes too.  Even now Ally makes the regular trips with us up to the hospital and has even got her own cannula ... 
I love that Emma still loves her baby doll even though she is now 11. 

Emma had her first chemo today and it went really well.  She has not experienced much nausea yet which is a blessing.  She said her tummy was a little queasy but nothing major.  She is such a tough little cookie

Anyway I have to go as I got no sleep in the hospital last night so I am going to have a nice shower, make a yummy cup of tea and go to bed.

(the extra kisses are for all the kind words and messages that we have been receiving for Emma.  God bless each and everyone of you)
