Back to the Drawing Board

Yesterday started a new game plan. They extended the amount time (from 30min to 3hours) mom would be given one of the chemotherapy drugs. The hope with this is to prevent hypersensitivity to the chemotherapy drug.  They also swapped one of the chemotherapy drugs she had been taking for a different drug. The point of that is to give her something a bit less toxic than what she was on and to hopefully stop some of the effects. She met with a pharmacist and he discussed signs of an adverse reaction to the drug. Like if she got a fever she would need to head to the hospital.

We got into a certain rhythm with the old chemo plan. After 18 weeks she and well all of us kind of knew what to expect. So as she starts this new plan we will take it one day at a time and just adjust accordingly.
