Little Bits of Life
Last Friday, I met with one of Hannah's oncologist's, Dr. Blythe Thomson M.D., to discuss Hannah's new treatment plan. It was a chance to run by the team what I had been researching. I found a couple of things that would help lessen the side effects of the High Dose Methotrexate, HD Mtx. We got the go ahead to try both the Glutamine and the Nuerontin. Hopefully, it will help Hannah avoid some of the harder to deal with side effects. I am crossing my finger and toes through the next phase!
Hannah is still in DI 2. She is only a few weeks in, so her counts are on the way down, but not completely crashed. She has some energy and is in a good mood almost all the time. I don't know where she gets it, I am burnt out!
Our family has been doing a lot of low key things, trying to fit life in around low counts.
Learning how to play "Angry Birds".
Getting all tatted up.
Hanging at Rian's, where, apparently, no one wants their picture taken!
Watching Aaron, in his role as a singing football player, in his school play.
