Today started the first 2 chemo drugs. Besides being sleepy, she is doing well. Prayer points are to keep fluid levels balanced while urinating out the chemo, keep eating, her left arm and hand are swollen(don't know if it is PICC line related or Palifermin related) but hoping no matter what it just goes away, nursing staff be on the ball(2 in a row were not good at their job and couldn't communicate with good English), and Drs. be vigilant with the numbers. I went out today to get things to liven up her room. She decided on some key saying that we hope will illicit conversations and make her smile.We are feeling settled into our transplant room and into our room at the Inn.
It was sad yesterday, because Karly's hamster died. She had been sick and Karly was treating her, but she just didn't pull through. She did live her life span and gave Karly and girls great snuggles and entertainment. We are now hamsterless. I guess this is a good thing. Karly won't be allowed around hamsters for at least a year or two. I cannot remember what they said. I'm sure as soon as it is allowed, we will have 3 running around...one for each of them.
I'm having some trouble with the new blog layout..doesn't seem to allow me to do as much. Thanks for praying! Mom
