... LW's fever never got above 100 and has been normal all day. I was able to go out today by myself and get some little posters laminated for her hospital room (ayiyiyi, ask the price first!) and do some grocery shopping.
If all goes well, then we'll go in Thursday for counts and office visit (meaning: meet with doctor, which we don't always do), then if counts are good, we'll be admitted to the hospital for about 6 days.
To say I'm apprehensive would be a laughable understatement. Even after talking to others who have done "Regimen I," I just don't know what it's going to be like for us. I know that when they give her Etoposide, they'll page all the doctors on the floor to let them know, and they'll have a crash cart in her room, in case she has a reaction. I know that because the cyclophosfamide is "hard on kidneys," they'll be flushing her with copious amounts of IV fluid, before, during, and after chemo. And by copious, it has been explained to me that this means flooding the diaper, flooding the waterproof pad, getting up every hour and a half ...
So ... I just don't know.
But with all that ... I am crossing fingers, toes and eyes that her counts will be fine and we can get a room and get this started already.
Bags are (mostly) packed. Still need the electric plug for my thermo electric cooler. (Mom doesn't get a food tray.) Picked up Geraldine Brook's March from the library. Ginormous bag of videos. Nuther bag of toys.
