We came home yesterday. Scarlett is not feeling great, but she is okay. Probably a few more pukey days, but that's nothing new. We do a lot of laundry after chemo.
I am trying to get the house clean and functional again. It's a mess, even though we have hardly been here to make any messes. We left in a hurry on Wednesday, so things like dishes did not make the priority list. I am paying for it now. Our cats are shedding like mad and our $18 yard sale Roomba (which has done the majority of the vacuuming since Scarlett was born) gave out, so I have to sweep and vacuum, and probably mop a little too. Our mailbox was so stuffed that I am sure the mail carrier has finally had it with us. It's nice to be home, but it is going to take some work before I can enjoy my house.
I had to go through all of the little girl clothes, since we have officially left 0-3 size behind. She has SO many clothes in the next size, for every scenario and season, from fancy summer dresses to lined corduroy overalls. I hope she doesn't grow too fast so that she can wear them all!
I am also adjusting to her new medication schedule. She has 10 different medications on four different schedules - once, twice, three and four times a day, plus some as needed. In the hospital, the nurses bring everything already dosed on time and I give the meds. At home, I have a new iPhone app that alarms for her meds so that I don't forget or lose track of time. It seems silly to need it, but when something is due every few hours, I am bound to forget something. I also bought a scrapbooking organizer caddy to hold all her medications when we go out.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day. We don't have any big plans, but I am sure I will still feel just as appreciated. :-) A special Mother's Day wish to my sister, Scarlett's Auntie Lindi, who is officially pregnant! Cousin Orange-o, as Chris and I fondly refer to him/her, will be joining us sometime in November.
