Chemo Monday

We had an appt. today at Stanford to discuss Reba’s MRI results from last week’s MRI.

The tumor has grown 40% since her surgery (2 weeks ago). This reaffirms the need to begin more chemo. Because the tumor is aggressive and fast growing, it should hopefully respond well to the chemotherapy (which attacks fast growing cells).

So we will be at Lucile Packard next week, Monday- Saturday for cycle 1 of cyclophosphamide and Topotecan infusions. 

Let’s beat this Cancer!! Reba can do this!!

Also Nik has become a pro at the daily flushes for the PICC line. We had one cap change this week (resulting in the need for pliers) and today at Stanford she had her first dressing change (which she was not happy about). She also had labs drawn drama-free today thanks to the PICC line.

    She will definitely beat it. That tumor will respond to chemo for sure.
