Look at me. Holding my kid. No gown, No gloves.
Try to refrain from hugging and kissing someone you love a whole bunch for four days. Ok, don't do it. Just believe me, it is super duper hard.
So, we are still here. Life has been uneventful, which is good. Lila has started to feel tired a lot. She is just not her usual super smiley self. I guess she can't be happy ALL the time, although I was starting to think she could. Right now she is slapping her knees and saying "Bababaaaaaaaa". I think she's currently feeling alright.
Transplant day is tomorrow. It is also a pretty uneventful...event. It is basically like a blood transfusion that smells like an italian restaurant. I guess the preservative they use when they freeze stem cells, cord blood, etc. smells like stewed tomatoes and garlic. Weird, I know. I wonder if Lila will have an aversion to Olive Garden for the rest of her life.
In other news, it snowed here on Tuesday. Jack was beyond excited to frolic in the freshly fallen powder, so we got him all bundled up and out he went. 20 minutes later, he was done. Didn't want to go back out again. He did, however, make a pretty rad, albeit small snowman.
