Research & Updates

Treatments of Vincristine are usually followed by naps.

Treatments of Vincristine are usually followed by naps.

The eight o’clock appointment came early this week as the time change had us up before dawn. Because we live close we’ve been taking the early morning appointments. The later ones are filled by people driving from other places. Some days are really busy in Hem/Onc. Today seemed to be a quiet day. Frankly, I’d rather all the Hem/Onc nurses and doctors were out of work because cancer no longer existed. Until then, Isa had a push of Vincristine today, a spinal tap with a dose of Methotrexate, and three shots of PEG-asparaginase.


For the past few days, I’ve been researching. Looking at the different medications that Isa is taking. Looking for Foundations to help us with donations. Looking for other Blogs about other Cancer Kids. So send me links, so I don’t have to do this all by myself. My eyes are squinty from reading about chromosomal differences in leukemic cells.  And reading about the different drugs.

Thursday found Isa tired and she even fell asleep on the couch, TWICE. A good part of that came from the Vincristine, but also, Wednesday we celebrated my birthday. Both girls stayed up a bit past their bedtime. Mama & Papa both had a little cake with coffee, keeping both up until far too late. Thus making the usual day at Riley a bit more surreal.

If you find anything that you think I might be interested in email Make my life a little easier.
