Yesterday we had another clinic visit. It was a slow day, so we were in and out (so nice compared to last week). Cami was looked at by her Doctors and they explained the next phase. The next phase is called Standard Consolidation, it will last 4 weeks. In this next phase Cami will be getting Vincristine (the chemo that they give in her PORT at clinic), Mercaptopurine (this is a form of chemo she will take orally at home each day) and Intrathecal Methotrexate (another chemo given each week in her spinal tap). She will also be taking the antibiotics, pain meds, anti-nausea, and and antacid. We are SO excited to say Buh-bye to those HORRID steroids. We cant wait to start this new phase and get our Cami back!
I know these stats are way boring (for most of you), but I want to keep track each week so you can just skip this part...
Weight: 21.7 KG (47.7lbs)
You can really tell how tired she is here.
No smiles after a day filled with doctors, pokes and anesthesia.
Plus, her cheeks are getting so puffy form those steroids she can hardly smile anyway.
ONE MORE DAY!!!
