How Much Chemo Does it Take…?

November 11, 2009 How much chemo does it take to keep a good girl down? Apparently more than Tanner has had, and that’s saying something. Tanner continues to feel good and her energy level is actually increasing, despite the fact that her counts are likely tanking. I tried to tell leukemia that it picked the wrong girl!

We played all morning at Liberty Park playground. She set up an entire Barbie neighborhood while Jake napped, we did some homework, she wrote two stories for her teacher, she had her lesson, ate dinner, played wii and then she read two stories to Jake before bedtime. I was tired, but she didn’t seem to be.

Tomorrow is clinic day. We’ll just go in for counts and an IV dose of ARA-C. Then, she’ll come home accessed again for another 3 doses of ARA-C, like last week. She continues to take 6-TG oral chemo daily until next Friday. Then, we are done with DI… yay!

Jake has a yucky nose so pray she doesn’t get it (or that I don’t for that matter, since I can’t seem to get a cold without getting bronchitis these days).

Also, special prayers for Madelyn, the little 3-year-old who was diagnosed with ALL when we were in the hospital last time. She is still at Vanderbilt and I know how tired her family is getting and how badly everyone wants to get home.

Tired, late, going to bed.

  1. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers every single day. Tanner must get her wealth of energy from you, Beth. I see how late you put these posts up and marvel at how you find the time and energy to do it with all you have to manager. Love to you all, Janice S.
