Peyton’s coming back!

I think I got to the point where I wasn't praying for the chemo, I was praying for her to make it through the steroid. She did, her last dose was on Friday and let me tell you…..she's already showing a HUUUUUUGE improvement!

I cannot truly express what a joy and relief it is to see her laughing and smiling at Nathaniel and Rachael's silly antics and wanting to participate in conversation and hamming it up for the camera. She'll even talk to strangers and wants to get out of bed and do things. It just feels like we're starting to get our baby back and like we can handle this again.

Since she was getting some serious "dandelion effect" going on, where her hair was just flying out all over the place, I finally shaved it this morning. She let me wrap her in a towel and we put one over her face and I gently and slowly shaved her, Rachael was a little horrified…..but I told her that we were doing it so we could all stop eating Peyton hair and she was cool with that. Kissing the child was sort of like licking a cat these days. She did great during the shave and grinned at herself in the mirror…she also has little handkerchiefs she lets me wrap around her head to go out now that she's getting used to and she's starting to warm up to the hats, but she looks adorable.

I posted pictures of her new hairdo AND her great smiles that have returned in the gallery in the "Happy Peyton" album. Please take a peek and see how much joy she brings and how God is working in her life. How can we not believe that God is comforting her with a smile like hers?
