3rd Treatment....

Well, today started off bright and early. Love did well to stay awake most of the drive to the hospital. She was very good even until they took her back. They did the nose spray first to relax her. It didn't work as well this time. She didn't cry but she wasn't "feelin' it" like before. They blocked me from her view as they took her away. It made me sad but I understood the reasoning behind it.

The doctor came out and shared his thoughts about her treatment. He thinks it will look even better, he increased the energy again this time for most areas and kept it the same for her neck. She did have quite a few of the grayish areas this time, which is a good sign. He wants her back for another treatment in 3 more months. She woke up pretty upset and was in quite a bit of pain. They gave her a shot of pain medication in her IV. It put her out again and when she finally woke up she was doing much better. In fact she has done very well all day. One short nap in the car and she has been going and going all day. Having no less fun, she acts like nothing has happened. If it goes like last time, she won't be uncomfortable until the spots start to "peel". Our little girl is such a trooper. She never ceases to amaze me how well she handles these things. I am so thankful for your prayers and please know that they made a difference :)
