We have our little family together again! :) Kate was discharged this morning and is doing well. She was so happy to get back home and Ava and Jackson were thrilled too! Except for fatigue and long naps, I haven't noticed too many side effects from the first round of chemo. Cross your fingers that it continues.
Next Thursday we will go back to the clinic for another round of chemo, intrathecal treatment and a bone marrow aspiration. They want to check and see if she is an "early responder" to the chemo so far. If there are no cancer cells in the bone marrow after 1 round she has a very good prognosis. Until then, we will be at home and giving her oral steroids and antibiotics.
It is amazing how we are suddenly so grateful to all be sleeping under the same roof again. I know that is seems strange to say, but after being in the hospital and seeing many children worse off than Kate we feel blessed. We are so fortunate to have a fantastic team of doctors and treatments for this disease. We are also very grateful to have so many prayers being offered on her behalf.
