Change of Plan!

Well we were all ready to start chemo today, except last night from 5 pm on, Reba became very ill, vomiting all night and extremely uncomfortable. 

This morning at 8 am we were admitted to Standford ER and we are staying the night here at 1 North at LPCH. 

What a day! Reba had an ultrasound on her abdomen, X-rays of her abdomen and PICC line, and a CT scan of her head (just in case! Worried us parents to death!!) All tests came back perfect which is such an incredible relief.

It is seeming like she just has a stomach bug, or maybe stomach infection/virus. After getting fluids through IV all day, Reba is already perking back up! She hasn’t vomited in 5 hours (knock on wood!). If she continues to do better, she most likely will start chemo tomorrow through Saturday and receive Neulasta next Monday. It would be nice to give her body longer to recover from such a horrible violent night of sickness but it is important to stay on track with the chemo timeline. 

Getting IV fluids in the ER; not feeling too hot
Reba was so brave for her CT scan- she was awake for it, no anesthesia (first time EVER), such a brave smart angel!

After over 24 hours of not being able to keep anything down, Reba really enjoyed having her “noo-noos!”
Pedialyte popsicles- genius!

    What a horrible day for Reba (and parents!). I am so glad that everything checked out. I hope she’s feeling even better tomorrow. Amazing she did the CT scan awake! Go Reba!!
