Another Day with My Little Love ......






Oh sweet Zoey.They were not lying when they said this last round was going to be a doozy.Two platelet transfusions,two blood transfusions,all in less than 3 weeks and still ... low platelets and low hemoglobin.Tired little love,don't these picture say it all?Zoey and I love hanging out on our bench.Not much room but we make it work.She rolls a bit.Sits in the window sill and has a view of the comings and goings of everyone.We are content and enjoy each and every moment of our time together.Giggles and laughs and book reading and lately she just rolls off my lap and falls asleep on the bench with the sun hitting her precious face.I just sit there and study her perfect face.This morning,as evident by the pictures,she was totally worn out.By days end she was much more like herself and freely giving out smiles and kisses.We continue to do the numbers waiting game.Could not even begin to speculate as to when we will be sprung.Until then we make the most of our days.Cherishing them,surrounded by our beautiful friends and loving nurses,that have become family.In a strange,inexplicable way,I will miss my daily routine on the 4th floor when it is our time to go.I love it there and at the same time, hate it there.Speaking of there,Mark is doing his Friday to Sunday morning gig there.Tomorrow he will be kept company by his good friend Jose.Jose has come a number of times over the last several months and hung out with Mark and Zoey.Makes all the difference in passing the time there.We love you for your friendship Jose and thank you for loving us.And me,well tomorrow I am getting up early and embarking on something that will either be being done at the absolute worst timing or the absolutely perfect timing.I'm hoping for the latter.Are you curious?Come back tomorrow and I will let you in on it.Keep the prayers for the 4th floor warriors coming.I wish you all could meet these kids.You would be changed forever.I know I am.

I LOVE that last photo. Her smile is truly heartwarming. And how cute is she in her butterfly shirt and matching leg warmers? Thinking of you all and totally curious about your adventure.

Oh Miss Zoey, you have a million dollar smile! I still cant get over the fact that she still has her hair. In our journey, of 4 1/2
years, I havent ever seen that happen. Prayers to you all through your final round.

There's her signature smile towards the end. You sound like your having better days. Except now I'm dying to know what your up to. Don't keep us in suspense.

Cheri said...

Yep, I'm curious! :) It was so good to talk with you the other day! Wishing Zoey lots of strength!! Always in our prayers!

Kele said...

Yes, you have me curious. Despite the lack of comments, I am keeping up with the going on's of the little Warrior Princess. Hate that we keep missing one anothers calls.
All the pictures speak volumes, the ones from Wednesday especially... poor thing! But I see more with smiles, you can always count on Zoey to smile, regardless.
Can't wait to hear about the visit with Preslie and Michelle!!!
Love to you all, and I won't give up on trying to reach you by phone and you don't either!

Too curious for words.... What is your fascinating mission this morning??? Thinking of you & the picture "story" of Zoey sure illustrates her feelings (tired to perky). Love and prayers for Zoey, her family, and all the 4th floor warriors. xo Christi Harman

I love seeing the style of clothes - a onesie with leggings. So cute.

These are the first photos I have seen where she is not smiling.

You and Zoey are in my daily prayers. Barbara
