Tuesday in Ronald Mc Donald house.
Today is very quiet day. REgina has no appointments and we just go to hospital for lunch and dinner.
Regina also had IV chemo yesterday ( Irinotecan (sp??). Hr lttle body does not like that chemo much. She got diarrhea and we have to keep a close eye on her poop ( nice chore.) Oh fun...
Regina may also need platelets tomorrow. Her platelet count is 64000 ( I think) and if it falls to 50 000 or lover she has to get some. And we were told that most likely it is tomorrow. I can actually see those signs her face. Her eyes are starting to have little dark circles under and she looks tired, even though she acts and feels normal.
We were also told that hey may have to stop her chemo for a while since her immune system is not dealing with chemo very well. Stopping chemo means cancer gets to breath which I strongly dislike. BUT stopping chemo means also her immune system gets a little brake and can recover faster and Regina gets stronger.
NOW, I LOVE DR MURRAY. He took my dental pain away. I just had filling but in about a month ago. And root canal at that time was fine, but after filling it got inflamed. IT was so inflamed that even numbing meds did not numb my nerve. SO while he was " killing" my roots, I was in horrible pain. I could feel ever poke, move that was going on while he was freeing me from pain. BUT it was worth it. I am pain free now. It feels awesome not to be in pain. !!!!!
JUSt hope that Regina does not get sick while her counts are dropping...
