I have been strong this last month, but today I have teared up randomly multiple times. I know it's because I will loss her again. This next stage of chemo is 2 months. We will go into clinic every 10 days if her blood counts are high enough to handle the next dose. If she's strong enough Amelia will get both Vincristine (she got this in her Induction Phase) and Methotrexate. Millie did get some jaw pain and lose almost all her hair with the Vincristine, but other than that she handled it very well. With the Methotrexate she will most likely get mouth sores the last couple weeks. We are praying she will make it through without any sores.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NO SORES!
We also got some other bad news, well we should have known already but somewhere along the way we got confused. After this 57 days, she moves on to her final phase before 2 year Maintenance. We have been told to prepare ourselves that this will be way harder on Amelia then Induction. The only thing I could look forward to is that it would only be a month. NOPE it too is 57 days. Sad. All the drugs are more intense and I believe she will be on a full dose of steroids again. They hit her hard to make sure and kill everything off.
Here goes nothing.
