Long Day of Chemo Today

We had to be at the hospital today at 8:00 am and didn't get done until 5:20 pm.
The treatment today required Natalie to be super hydrated and so they had to give her tons of fluid first then 30 minutes of chemo and then 4 more hours of hydration. It was a long day but we made the best of it making scrapbook pages all day. That was alot of fun and we will have a great book to fill with pictures of this journey. Natalie's friend Hallie came to the doctors office and hung out with Natalie all day. That certainly passes time better then being stuck with just me. The next four days the home nurse comes and gives Natalie shots of chemo and we don't have another appointment until next Tuesday. The next couple of weeks will be rough but we did get a new prescription today for another nausea medicine so we are hopeful that will make this round a whole lot better. Two of our favorite nurses left today. They are travelers and their time here is up. We will miss Kristie and Jodi so much. They were the best!


  1. Just thinking about you guys! We love you!

  2. Sorry to hear about the long day but sounds like you made the best of it. I think Jake just got the new nausea medication too- Emend?? Hopefully it works and the kids will have a better time this round.
    Wishing you nothing but the best with phase II of consolidation. You're in my prayers everyday:)
