Day 18 of Interim Phase I
Meet Leah.... she is a bundle of joy and everyone loves her on this floor. Liz and Leah complement each other well. They are two of the most up-beat, positive young girls you would want to be around. Leah is in the fourth grade and I can tell she is very loved by her classmates.
Liz is doing great! Better than the first time she received the High Dose Methotrexate. She felt a little sick the last two hours of the 24 hour chemo but that was it. Liz has been up playing games, watching movies, and having her nails done with Leah in the parent lounge. So much for the parent lounge...it becomes the Liz/Leah lounge by 8 or 9 pm. lol
We hope to be out sometime tomorrow. Her pH levels have to be <.01 of the methotrexate to be discharged. Doctors have not rounded yet so I do not know where her levels are at. Getting close I hope. Doctors just rounded and her level is 8. far far away from where it needs to be but on track. Her potassium was low but quickly taken care of, this also happened the last time around too; but this time she did not have to take the giant potassium horse pill. I have never seen a pill that BIG! I was gagging just looking at it. Some help I am right!
Keep praying and she will keep fighting. Your prayers are a blessing and we see the power all of you have in God's name.
