This Week

Paige will enjoy 4 Chemo free days this week - hooray! It was certainly easier this afternoon for all of us when she could have a leisurely dinner and pick whatever she wanted till it was time for her bath. Usually she has dinner, one hour later she is given her oral chemo, then we have to wait for another hour until she can have her bedtime milk. Apparently this particular Chemo is metabolized better on an empty stomach.
We head on down to QA tomorrow afternoon, to have a check up and bloods done.
Her Delayed Intensification 1 starts with a lumbar puncture and bone marrow this Friday. This will be her third block of intensive chemo and her doses will now be increased to the normal level, she was previously given 75% of the dosage because she was less than one year old.
