She's home and happy!

Lydia was released from the hospital on Tuesday.  She was so happy to come home and was feeling much better than when she went in.  She went back in for an outpatient infusion of antibodies on Friday.  She will go two times a week for infusions of meds or chemo for at least the next few weeks.  So far she seems to be handling the chemo quite well.  She seems somewhat subdued some days, but has had no other apparent side effects.  She could still have other reactions with future doses, so for her next infusion of the main chemo they will admit her for one night to make sure she handles it ok.  There is a possibility that she could lose some or all of her hair, but it's a smaller chance since it's a low dose chemo.  I love her curly hair, so I'm really hoping she doesn't. 
Thank you all very much for your love, prayers and support!  It really helps us get through the rainy days.
