Anyway, things went well. I have had a lot of concerns about Millie being so pale and tired all the time but her blood counts came back looking good. Her ANC was actually a little high so they have upped her dosage to 75% and we will check her blood again in 2 weeks. I wish we could get her dang dosage figured out. My brain is going crazy trying to keep track of what pills she takes when and how many. I am relieved they aren't waiting until our next clinic appointment in a month to find out what counts are again. I hate waiting to find out how she is responding to a new dose. She bounces around so much it's hard to know if she's safe to be taken around other people or not.
Millie's doc thinks that one of the reasons she is having a hard time during Maintenance is because her little body is just plain worn out from fighting. She did so well during her 1st 6 months of intense chemo and because of it, she is having a hard time fighting now. She is still doing well, she will probably just be tired and pale for the next year. I still have my concerns, but for now the doctors aren't worried so I will try not to be either. Easier said then Done.
On a side note, when I put Millie to bed last night she prayed for her usually things; President Obama, That we can sleep good, etc. Then she says, "And please bless that no one will escape from Jail"... not sure where that came from. After I told her that was a great prayer she said, "Oh mom, I forgot I had something really cute I wanted to say". So she continued with her prayer, "Also bless that no one else will get Leukemia and that the kids who have to be in wheel chairs because their legs hurt from cancer will feel better soon, but I'm happy they're in the hospital having fun". I love her and I love her sweet spirit. I also love that she thinks the hospital is FUN. I am so grateful she associates it with crafts and projects instead of the needles and illness.
As for her hair growth...
