Another Round of Chemo

So we checked into NYU Medical Center today for another round of chemo.  We are using the same concoction from last month, which Isabella seemed to tolerate fairly well.  Her blood counts recovered relatively quickly compared to the chemo blend from the previous rounds.  This doesn’t necessarily mean the chemo is working less or more, but what it does do is allow us to start another round sooner than we had before.

In the last couple of weeks, we have noticed some signs that Isabella has gotten weaker physically.  This really has us worried because this could mean that the tumor is progressing.  This is why we were glad to get back in sooner rather than later to start the chemo.

So as far as this round is concerned, we should be done and going home on Friday, then we’ll stick to trying to avoid any fevers and infections that would land us back in the hospital.  Sadly, we are so used to being at the hospital that everything is practically routine at this point.  Hopefully, these next few days will fly by and it’ll be Friday before we know it.
