CAN YOU GUESS???? Tumors ARE SHRINKING!!!! There are still lot of cancer cells present, but overall, it looks really good. Dr Dhall is very, very exited and since he was in such a good mood , he decided that Regina deserves 2 more rounds of same kind of chemo. lol So we are going to CHLA on Friday- get Irinotecan, oral etoposide, temador, cyclophosfomide( sp?), and if everything goes well first stem cell transplant ( well 5th actually if to count past transplants).
Then we will stay to LA area for 3 weeks- RMDH , get back to school for couple of weeks, then another round of chemo and and in December there will be another MRI.
Why same chemo you ask??? We were supposed to start doing outpatient chemo, BUT, since tumors reacted so well to this kind of chemo, we are hitting her with same drugs..
BUT OMG, TUMORS ARE SHRINKING, OMG, OMG, OMG. I am so exited about it, amazing:):):):)

NOW, send your positive thoughts to Reginas way. CHemo is never fun, and it will be hard on her- appetite change, mood change, vomiting, tiredness, longs hospital nights, labs, checkups...etc...Lots and lots of hospital action.:) I hope she does as well as past 3 rounds :)
