It's been a few days since the last post and thankfully not much to report. I think I spoke too soon last time as Syd's fever returned. We've had a lot of sick kids, cranky kids, a lot of waking up in the middle of the night and all that goes with that. Thankfully we are getting back on track.
Karen has been suffering from the usual bone pain from the Neulasta shot. It's supposed to last 24hrs but in her case it seems to last 3-4 days. Percocet seems to do the trick but K uses it sparingly due to the fog it brings. I have done some research and come across a drug called Nupogen which may be easier on her. I'm going to ask Dr Dan.
As of tonight Karen's doing much better and as she put it "I assume I'll feel ok tomorrow".
Next Monday will see the fourth round of chemo and we schedule a CT scan soon after that to measure progress. Logistics for chemo weeks are really important to ensure K can rest as much as possible and that the kids are looked after. I think we still have a few holes in the schedule for next week but hopefully we can figure that out before Monday.
Although it's not going to be for a few weeks, I am already looking forward to the CT scan and have high hopes for an excellent result.
One more thing tonight: Don, if you're out there, can you email me? I'd like to know how you made out on the 5th and how recovery is going.
