Last Night of Chemo

That's right...tonight Mel will receive her last dose of chemo for this induction period. We are so proud of you Mel!! It's been tough and you've been so strong. Mel's rash could last for a couple of more weeks, and she will more than likely start losing her hair this week. The plan for now is to allow her counts to come up. The doctor said it could take three weeks. She'll remain in the hospital until her counts are at a certain level, then she may be able to go to Greg's house. Let's pray for that!

They may do a body scan to see if the breast lump is completely gone. For now, we focus on Mel regaining her strength.

Kaden woke up this morning with a really sore throat, so Dad and Kaden's visit was cut short. My mom said they said goodbye at the elevator this morning. 

We'll keep you all update. Love to everyone who follows this blog!

Hooray for being done with chemo! I'm glad so far it hasn't been too horrible. We're praying for you, Mel!
