I hope everyone had a most wonderful Christmas!! My dearest Sarge sent me fantastical pressies! And even one for my two leggers. BOL I will post pictures soon. I love them all, Sarge! You are the best!!!
In the meantime, any positive thoughts and prayers you can spare for Cali would be very much appreciated.
Her first treatment was a huge success. Though the Vincristine did cause her ALT value to rise. After the second treatment with a different drug, her nodes stayed down but the ALT was way too high to do the third treatment. We were forced to skip a week. Mom wasn't too worried because Cali was doing so well but by the end of that week, the lymph nodes were big again... Not good. Luckily her liver values were better so the third treatment was completed last week, another round of Vincristine.
It hardly brought down the nodes at all. In fact, they were worse by the end of the week. Cali has been tolerating the treatments like a champ but we have to bring those nodes down. She had treatment yesterday of Adriamycin. This is the heavy hitter in her chemo protocol and after more than 12 hours, no response. Her breathing is very labored and eating is difficult.
Mom and I have been up most of the night listening to her breathe. :(
