The steroid regiment is over with! Briley is back to her normal self. Her hungry is back to normal. She's not having any pain. So, life is back to as normal as it can get. Thankfully it will be another 3 months until she has to take steroids again.
We've all had kids taking predisone at one point or another due to sickness. Take the predisone side effects and multiply it by 10 and that's what it's like taking high dose dexamethasone. And then add all of the chemo on top of it.
The reason I say that is, a couple of people got a little frustrated or a little "pushy" with Briley while she was on the steroids and they would say, "oh, my kid has had steroids before when he/she was sick one time so we know what it's like". Maybe so, but you really don't have a clue what she is going through. Steroids + chemo + fractures - come on folks. People soon forget that she is still undergoing treatment for cancer. Something that I hope no one else will have to deal with.
Ok, that's the end of my little rant. Everything else is going well. Alicia and Briley are doing good at the school. We are thankful Alicia was able to be Briley's teacher this year!!! Bryson is loving daycare! My school is going well, just ready to be done with it! We've got some rain!!!!! That's always a good thing! Thank you for keeping up with us!
