Day 3 actually had a few happy moments. She played on the iPad for a minute, laughed about the emoticons that she put by family members' names, smiled while holding the twins, ect. I had a glimmer of hope in those moments. I thought for a second that we could do this... and then I changed my mind... and then changed it back.
Her blood pressure is still a little high (which I attribute to her panic attack every time a medical professional walks into the room). She is on a med for that and had an EKG to see about her slow resting heart rate (47-65). She screamed the whole time and I was told it looked fine, but also that it wasn't even useful because she was screaming. Hmmm...
We have been getting ideas and tricks from fellow families on how to make this place feel a little more like home. We have started decorating and bringing color in the room in hopes to lift her spirits. We can't wait to have miss Cami (relapsed ALL cutie that has just completed a bone marrow transplant) here again to share with us some of her favorite tips/tricks.
Overall, we are doing pretty good. Taleah is handling it as well as possible. On day 4, she still has a lot of anger and hate for most of the world. I don't blame her. I am just hoping I can bring some light into her life and make her feel special and loved. She is a stubborn girl so she can do this again. There has got to be a reason she was blessed with so much spunk!
