Today is a better day. I got more sleep last night (although Maddie did throw up all over herself around 5:00am, ugh) and though there are visitors coming by later, they are not staying for long since they are my coworkers on lunch break from work. I woke up with the babies around 7:00 this morning to find that although they were fussing a bit and clearly hungry, they were also bright-eyed and happy. I managed to, all by myself, change both of them and get them settled enough to allow me to eat breakfast and get ready to feed them. Then Maddie and I woke up her daddy and he helped me with the feeding. It was nice family time.
I feel a bit silly being so proud that I handled Maddie and Riley on my own this morning, but mostly I've had help with them and it was a nice sense of accomplishment to do it on my own. Plus it was a beautiful, cool morning and they were so cute and happy. After GH and I got them fed, they had some time on their Gymini:
GH is at work today. Tomorrow is his last day before a seven-week break (two weeks' paternity leave followed by five weeks' summer vacation). I can't wait to have him home all the time. His chemo went well yesterday. Numbers are steady, platelets still low. They reduced the dosage of one of his drugs to see if they can get some effect without hammering the platelets so hard. He's feeling OK so far from the treatment. I hope that lasts.
