Well, we are in Omaha today to start round three of chemo. We got into the cancer clinic at 9:00am this morning...we were checked into a room after 2:00pm. What did we do for 5 hours? I have no idea! We sat, we laid, we played, we ate, we walked, we cried, we laughed...and that was just Chad and I!! Teasing :-) Charli did great!
She is currently receiving her first drug of the weekend.
Has anyone given it any thought how you keep a baby (who is learning how to roll over and trying to learn to crawl) content in a crib while she is covered in IV lines?! Well, incase you haven’t…it isn’t easy! Charli will roll and toss and turn and get caught in her line…and/or eat it even more now! What a good problem to have.
Knock on wood…she is eating great. Usually when we get to the hospital, she stops eating. Well…today she has eaten great!
Charli will have her MRI in about 4 weeks. At that time we will know more about it. There are a few things we could find out at that time.
a) the tumor has not responded to treatment, and a new method of treatment would need to be examined.
b) The tumor has shrunk enough that it can be removed by surgery at this time
c) The tumor has shrunk, but not enough to remove with surgery at this time, and 4 more cycles will be needed. (this is the anticipated result)
We are excited for this day to get here for several reasons!
All for now I guess. I just want to thank all of you for visiting her site and learning about this disease. I think that some of you will do great things with your knowledge, and I thank you for it. Also, thank you for all of you who continue to show us your love and support through cards, calls, emails, notes, visits, etc. Each act of kindness is just as special and unexpected as the next…and all are truly appreciated.
We hope all of you have a great weekend!
PS…happy late birthday to Vicki & Rachelle!!
