Ally did a fantastic job at the hospital yesterday. Since her episode when she had a reaction to the Rituximab we have been very careful to make sure it doesn't happen again. She has to take an allergy pill at home for 3 days prior to the infusion and then they give her 3-4 meds at the hospital to help keep the allergic reaction away. Then, she finally gets the Rituximab, which takes about 2 hours to get in. We got there around 9:00 and left around 1:00. Ally fought the sleepiness the meds bring on, and did not nap. For the most part she was pleasant, but I think a nap would have done her wonders. For doing such a nice job we took her to the Olive Garden (she LOVES the cheese they put on everything) and got her a new book. We go back for the second part in 2 weeks.

Other than a quick trip to the hospital we have been having a squeaking fantastic summer. We meet up with some friends at the lake once or twice a week, we have painted pottery, we visit the library, we visit the local pool, we meet up with other friends and do fun things with them. And Max is home!!! (He went on a vacation with his Mommy and Daddy...and Ally missed him like crazy!) Next week Ally has dance camp!
