7 Days Left

August 20, 2009

But basically we’re over and done with Delayed Intensification. Today, Isa let the nurse access her without screaming. Not one bit! They had some trouble getting a blood return.  Her ANC is still 24, so still not going anywhere. We have the HEPA filter on and the ozone generator. Both may help some. Next week her counts have to be 750 to start Augmented Interim Maintenance again. With Leukemia, they have several different segments and because Isa is Standard-high risk she has to do some sections twice.

If her counts are good then she will receive Vincristine, Methotrexate and a Lumbar Puncture with methotrexate. Just like before. Otherwise she will only get accessed for the blood draw and then we can go home.

So, now that the excitement of DI is over, I will of course document the important stuff, but may branch more into the LIFE part of this blog. Starting today!

I love to paint, but if it isn’t done properly it can ruin a good table. Or at least, force you to do it over. Money and I learned a couple of lessons. Latex paint will stick to itself if you use too many coats or paint if it is humid. From what I’ve read, the only thing to do is start over. This problem is called blocking.
