Done With the Chemo, For Now

So Isabella finished up the second day of chemo uneventfully.  Now we play the nervous waiting game.  We’ll monitor her closely for nausea and fevers, although we don’t expect the nausea to hit for a couple more days.  She has been ok so far and has been eating with no problems. 

On Monday, we’ll do our first of several blood draws that will check her blood counts to see when she will need transfusions. 

Since we don’t know how Isabella will react to the chemo, we don’t have any plans for the weekend (or for the next few weeks for that matter).  We’re just going to sit around home and take it easy, and maybe catch up on some movies.  Also, her hair probably won’t fall out for a couple of weeks, which we’ll be sad to see.P1030546


  1. Novena To
    St. Peregrine
    Glorious wonder-worker, St. Peregrine, you answered the divine call with a ready spirit, and forsook all the comforts of a life of ease and all the empty honors of the world to dedicate yourself to God in the Order of His holy Mother.
    You labored manfully for the salvation of souls. In union with Jesus crucified, you endured painful sufferings with such patience as to deserve to be healed miraculously of an incurable cancer in your leg by a touch of His divine hand.
    Obtain for me the grace to answer every call of God and to fulfill His will in all the events of life. Enkindle in my heart a consuming zeal for the salvation of all men.
    Deliver me from the infirmities that afflict my body (especially Isabella).
    Obtain for me also a perfect resignation to the sufferings it may please God to send me, so that, imitating our crucified Savior and His sorrowful Mother, I may merit eternal glory in heaven.

    St. Peregrine, pray for me and for all who invoke your aid.

    With love, The Tiernans
