Yesterday, Delilah and her mom were at the outpatient part of hospital getting a 4 hour transfusion for Delilah as her numbers were low (from the chemo). They now have to watch her carefully for a fever in which case she will have to be hospitalized for observation. This is so overwhelming for all of the family.
Delilah missed a chemo treatment last week because her numbers were too low. She is having a blood draw on Monday and hopefully her numbers will be ok. If so, she will be admitted to the hospital at 6:30 am Tuesday morning for an intense (surgical type) chemo administration; after which she will remain hospitalized for 24 hours so they can watch her and be sure she's ok.
We are all a little nervous about it and hopefully things will go smoothly.
Thanks for stopping by and your inquiries about Delilah.
Thursday (yesterday) Lyllah went to the hospital for tests. Here is the update from her mom:
Ok, so the blood work is back and the number that tests her kidney function has gone from 2.6 to 5.6 which means her kidney function is low. What that means for us is that she may not be able to flush out the chemo fast enough and that would in turn make it toxic. So we have to return on Monday and try again. - Becca
We would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Thanks for all of your support it means a great deal to all of us.
