Chemo Day 4

Another day done! We are excited and hopeful that the chemo is attacking the tumor. 

Everyday of treatment is a day closer to being cured.

Very similar day in terms of order of events- we premedicated with Zofran this morning and Reba did not get sick in the car.  🙂

They did an hour of pre-hydration followed by the two chemo infusions and finishing wth two hours of post-hydration.

After the post-hydration, Reba’s PICC line was due for a cap and dressing change. This unfortunately was the hardest part of the day- during the dressing change (which ended up taking 20 minutes, Reba being held down, screaming) they were really making sure her sores around the site are clean and safe. Her little baby skin is so sensitive. Hopefully it heals under all that dressing. 

The upside was after the dressing change the “live therapy” partners, Cici and Guinness (a schnoodle and Yorkshire terrier) came to show us tricks and pets.

    Go Reba! When Aurora had her central line, the dressing had to be changed weekly. I dreaded it so much. It got easier though as she got used to it. Hang in there Reba and family! Sending you love!
