So yesterday Miss Jade started another round of chemo. This round so far has been a bit hectic! We started out at the hospital because the clinic was closed for MLK Day. Jade got to start her day out by seeing her most favorite intensivist, Dr. Spongebob otherwise known as Dr. Futterman We ended up having issues with the pharmacy which made her chemo arrive 2 and 1/2 hours late, which in turn made us have to stay at the hospital until 11:30pm, with no room to stay in because the HEM/ONC was completely full. With the ice it took us forever to get home! We then had to turn around 6 and 1/2 hours later and drive straight back to the clinic for more chemo! We got home at about 6:45pm today. Jade went to take a bath and when she came down she had blood stuck in her access line…so off to the ER we go…Needless to say this week has not started the way we would have liked, but all in all Jade is doing well so far, so can’t complain too much!
Please keep Miss Evy Carroll in your thoughts and prayers tonight as her family received news today that her heart has weakened because of all of the chemo, she will be starting 4 new heart medicines tomorrow to try to help it. She will be in the hospital for observation to make sure her kidneys can process the new medicines!
