Emotional Day

Wow today sure has been a hard one for this ole mumma.

Emma had an emotional breakdown when we got to the hospital and refused to let any of the nurses go near her.  She needed to have her port needled up and bloods taken but that wasn't going to happen was it.  She was so distressed and very upset.  Broke my heart when she said that she had had enough and just couldn't do this any more.  She had me in tears in the end but luckily there was an awesome nurse there that has this way with children.  Thank goodness she finally got it done and the chemo was able to go ahead.  Her echo results were good too.  The Oncologist is not sure if he will do the fifth cycle and we won't find out until next month when she has her next echo.  I cannot wait for all of this to be over as it is so hard, especially on my sweet little munchkin.

Sorry for the morbid post but I just had to rant.

Sad to hear this Leanne. Hope she gets through it all and becomes a stronger person because of it... Take care...x

I am so sorry Leanne. I couldn't think of anything worse than your child telling you enough.
Sending big hugs to you both xxx

Sorry to hear that it was a particularly tough visit for you both today. Sending positive thoughts for your tough little chickie.

Can I just say (and I hope this isn't inappropriate at this particular moment) that I had a little giggle at the countdown ticker on your blog. I'm guessing you're a wee bit excited about the impending Kaisercraft DT announcement ;).
Good luck!!

emma has been so resilient so far, im not surprised she had a meltdown now. it is a difficult thing to cope with as a child and as a mum watching. even though portacath's arent meant to hurt it's the whole process i think. i am sure she will improve and that if she needs the chemo it will happen, if not then i pray her tumour is responding well. keep up the gr8 work and remember love is all around u,
