(I'm growing and so is my hair)
What else happened... well I found out I wasn't giving her enough Methotrexate. Not sure how I messed that one up. She only takes it on Thursdays and she is suppose to take 5, 2.5mg pills. I was only giving her 1. I know we did it right the 1st week because I remember thinking, "wow, that's a lot of pills," somewhere during weeks 2 and 3 I just slipped. We are back on track now but I feel horrible. Who messes up their daughters chemo? I do! Oops!
I also decided that I am going to keep track of her height and weight at every month appointment. I think it will be fun for us to look back on. I wish I had done it the whole time. When she was 1st on her steroids she gained a 1/3 of her body weight in 2 weeks. I wish I had a record of that. I also am going to try and put a picture of her up every Sunday in the same place so we can watch her hair change. I think it will be fun for her to actually see that there is a difference.
