Bookworm

Sorry for only updating now, Terence and Bianca came home pretty late last night and I did not have a chance to update again. Bianca is doing well and the bruise ended up being nothing more than a bruise. Her platelets and all other blood results are really really good. So that is a big relief, because low platelets and bruising could mean internal bleeding and that's not really where we would like to be. Thank you so much to all of you who commented and emailed with your concern!

Tonight Bianca read her two school library books as they haven't really got homework as yet and it was so cool to see her read so well. She didn't need to point with her fingers and she did not struggle with many words at all. She did struggle a bit with "certain" and "chameleon". And she was so incredibly proud of herself for reading the word "adventurous" all by herself without any help from me. I have no idea what her reading level is as the teachers are still doing their assessments. What I do know is that she is able to read most things now without any help, and she loves reading. Just the other night she asked her dad what it meant when somebody said "bookworm".

And right now things are going really well and we can't complain at all. At times I'm getting quite impatient as I just really want to get to September already and I can't help wondering what it will be like when we have no more medicines at all. But then I remind myself that before I know it we will get there. After all, I can't believe that we are already in February!

I'm so glad all is well with Bianca, and the bruise is just a bruise! Her reading sounds really good, she's one very intelligent girl!!

Great for "just a bruise" and great about the good counts!
It sure sounds like you have a very smart little girl there!
Yes, September will be here before we know it.

Liewe aarde! Those are big words! The chemo definately didn't get to her brain cells. ;-)
