    Looks like she's going to get an MRI of her hip and the infection site tomorrow. They'll have to sedate her for it.

    She's in so much pain from the cellulitis on her hip that she screams when I pick her up or even change her. All she can really do right now is lay in the bed and watch tv.

    And I noticed her hair is starting to fall out. Hopefully it grows back just as red when all of this is done.

    Awwww, poor baby, so sorry to hear that she's in such agony, poor little sweetie.

    I can't imagine how hard it is for you, saw your post about your company being very understanding during this, thank heaven for that.

    Just hoping and praying that she's better as soon as humanly possible.

    Wishing you guys health. You're doing all the right things and right now you just have to weather the storm. We don't know how strong how we are until we got to pick ourselves up and keep moving. But that's the key; keep moving. You'll get through it, you're going to wonder how in the world you did it, but you'll do it.

    I keep thinking about you guys, trying to send good vibes your way.

    If you have to get it out, the pm box is always open, sometimes we have to send the bad vibes into the ether to let it go. LMK in the title and I'll delete without reading. Keep your head up!

    Livi had a pretty good couple of days. Started eating alot more, so today they took her off the IV nutrition.
    We've been going on wagon rides around the hospital, which she really likes. Today, we walked down two hallways to the playroom on the floor. She hasn't walked much at all since the 4th, the day before she went to the ICU. She's still wobbly but made it while I held her hands.

    Hopefully, as long as there aren't any setbacks, she might be able to go home early next week.

    Took this video earlier today. First time I've seen her really smile in weeks:

    Cutting her insulin to a really low dose. She'll only get it if her sugar is above 150. They'll check her sugar before eating, and every 4 hours if she's not eating.

    At this rate, she'll be off the insulin pretty quick

    I'm home tonight. My sister in law is staying with Livi tonight. She texted me earlier, said Livi's sugar was 65, but the nurses still gave her insulin. She hasn't had insulin all day today, I'm afraid they're going to cause her to go too low. I'm not happy.

    Tonight, I got home, ate, then had to immediately take my other daughter Jozie, to the Fast ER. She's got an ear infection. So she can't see Livi for 48 hours now. I'm just hoping that she didn't give her anything while she was at the hospital today.

    sorry if you posted it and missed it but what kind of leukemia is it?

    my best friend had acute lymphoid leukemia. they caught it pretty early and he only dealt with about a year, year and a half of chemo, didn't even lose all of his hair. if he's any indication, your little girl will be just fine.

    cancer sucks but between the doctors, you and your wife, she's in great hands :)

    I think it's the same thing your friend had. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia

    As long as Livi's sugar stays normal, she might be going home tomorrow :)

    That's great news!

    Cancer sucks but there has actually been tremendous progress with curing many childhood cancers. It is unfortunate that the progress on curing adult cancers lags way behind despite the enormous amount of money spent on research etc.

    Might be an issue with her going home :/

    My other daughter Jozie, who had the ear infection, now has a double ear infection, and according to her doctor, Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease.

    The ear infections would be fine since they're both on antibiotics, but the HFM disease is viral, and with Livi's lowered immune system, she can catch it really easily. I'll have to see what the doctors say in the morning, but I have a feeling that she's going to be here longer.
