3 down 1 to go

We are home again after the 3rd chemo round. It went very well today. No surprises, which is a good thing! Sandra slept through most of it thanks to heavy doses of Benadryl to start the chemotherapy. It was slow going--almost 5 hours at the hospital. They are dripping the chemo into her veins very slowly to minimize the allergic reaction. We'll take slow and steady instead of scary allergic reactions!

Sandra is already crashed out on the couch and I would guess will sleep most of the day. Each chemo round will bring more tiredness.

We are just thankful that this went well and pray the next 3 weeks stay infection free.

Thanks for all of your support!

  2. Ditto to Alyssa's comment!!! What a blessing for answered prayer. I'm so thankful that things went smoothly today. I'm glad that you're resting and taking it easy. I'll call tomorrow afternoon and see if it's alright to come visit after school:).
