Day 5 was a day off of chemotherapy for Bri. The nurses and doctors were still talking about how well she did with the treatment on day 4.
Bri woke up with a big appetite and couldn't wait to get breakfast, which is another plus given the amount of chemotherapy she has received. In fact, she had a good appetite all day.
Her doctors told us that most of the test results from her biopsies were back and it appears that her ALL will be cured using only chemotherapy. Sometimes, bone marrow transplants become necessary but in her case, it doesn't appear that way. This was so great to hear! As soon as the doctors left the room we prayed and thanked God for His blessings and for the good report!
Emotionally, Bri had kind of a roller coaster of a day. She got real tired after breakfast. Dealing with medicine and doctors, beeping pumps, etc., she told me she just wants this to be over. We talked for awhile, decided to get lunch and watched football the rest of the day.
Tammy came over early evening and brought posters our girls made for Bri's room. Each made one with their own pictures, and one with pictures of our family. Tammy stuck them all on the wall for Bri to have right in front of her. They were the topic of discussion for the rest of the evening. Brooke came to visit, as well, and brought many laughs to share.
We are all super proud of Bri and her attitude and determination.
