This afternoon Sophia and I watched The Empire Strikes Back. I know that I have introduced Sophia to the ways of The Force out of cinematic order, but she is already hooked and is insisting that we start from the beginning of the Star Wars series tomorrow. I am afraid to disappoint her and tell her just how bad the three prequels are so I’ll just let her judge for herself.
Today was a good day here despite some Sophia pukage. Her puk-o-meter is now at two, and we are trying to manage Jacqui’s effusive milk flow into Sophia a little better. Because Jacqui had pyloric stenosis–an overgrowth of the pyloric valve which connects the stomach and the small intestine, a condition which causes projectile vomiting and requires surgery at 3 weeks–we are watching Sophia closely. The condition can be heritable, but we are hoping that this is just a passing gasiness, something she may have inherited from her daddy.
Meanwhile, I had an ultrasound of my spleen today to confirm that I am indeed lymphoma free. Everything looked good, and on Thursday I start a series of procedures which gear me up for the autologous transplant that will begin on January 2.
