Back to reality...

No more beaches. Back to the real world.

Mandy started a new cycle of chemo today. Her counts were good, ANC 2110, platelets 151, so chemo was good to go. A bit of a bump in the road today though. As you might remember, about 2 months ago, Mandy had an allergic reaction to her Carboplatin. Since then we have premedicated with Benadryl and a steroid and she has done well. Today she had a bit of a reaction. It looked like the beginning of hives. I do tend to be just a bit hyper sensitive to this now. :-) As always the staff at All Children's rocked and the nurses and Doc were right on it and put a second dose of Benadryl on board and it promptly started to not look so angry. We were able to finish chemo and it was otherwise uneventful. So, another 9 hour day at clinic, another dose of chemo done. Hopefully, next week, she won't try to have a reaction again. Cause really, that's just no fun and needs to stop.

I am going to start going through pictures and start the first post about Mandy's dream trip. Fasten your seat belts!

Love to all~
