As our life takes a step in a more normal direction I feel so much like I have just brought my new baby out of the house for the first time. I want this. We all want this, yet I'm somewhat paranoid for her to touch anything. Armed with hand sanitizer and slow and controlled breathing I watch and cringe hoping she won't catch an illness. As we begin venturing more places and she remains healthy I'm sure this will get easier. For now we are taking baby steps. Maybe in a few weeks I'll be ready for a trip to the grocery store....... or maybe not.
Today we went to the hospital for a blood check and after one week on her new medication Jemma's immune system was a little lower then desired. Compared to how it has been, the numbers looked great. Nevertheless, her dosage was reduced for the week and will be adjusted again next week.
