Talitha was so excited to see her mom again. She just held her around the neck for the longest time. When it was time for me to leave and head back to Provo, Talitha said questioningly, "home?"
We hadn't heard her say that word before and she repeated her little question several times hoping for a different answer than what she was getting.
Hopefully, Audrey will bring her home late tomorrow. We all are hoping she can have a good long string of days, even a full week or more without having to be admitted for SOMETHING.
This is the last "Induction" round of chemotherapy. Next up are the three rounds of "Consolidation" chemotherapy. Those will be the heavy hitting rounds that knock out her bone marrow each time. (I know they have over 100 million of her own stem cells collected and in a freezer somewhere to be used to rescue her when the time is right, but the idea of killing off ALL her bone marrow (?!)...I'm just not too excited about that.)
But that's not tonight's concern.
I'm praying she can come home for as much of the next two weeks as possible.
Tali's too young to have watched the Wizard of Oz yet but she's already agreeing with Dorothy: "There's no place like home!"
