As always, we were at chemo yesterday - it was Monday. Although yesterday Alex and I had a special companion which made the day fun. It is spring break so Michael was off school so the poor
kid had to go to chemo with us but he had fun. I rarely take him but it is good for him to see what Alex goes through because for a five year old it is hard to understand what cancer means. He was amazing! He made the hours go by quicker since Alex had fun having him there and showing him to everyone - "Alex brother, Michael."
In the recent past, the doses of chemo have been going up because they want Alex's blood count in a certain range and her numbers were consistently high. If her numbers are too high the chemo might not be doing its job so they kept upping the dose which means she feels a
Little worst but it looks like we have finally reached the desired range. She is also at the max dose allowed so we are happy that the numbers finally fell to the desired range. The only scare was that because they were low - we were initially told we wouldn't be able to fly tomorrow to spend Easter in FL but after more discussion they agreed we should fly with the condition that we are constantly sanatizing her hands. FL here we come!!! Alex is looking forward to the Easter Egg hunt. She likes hiding eggs all over the apt so she has been practicing for the real thing!!
