Monday I completed my ninth chemo treatment. (Only eight more to go!) Since there was no school due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the kids and my parents accompanied Patrick and me to MD Anderson this week.
My parents stayed with me during my treatment while Patrick took the kids out to explore Houston. I loved them being there with me rather than having to miss them so much this time! I think it was good for them to see where I go every week and I was thankful my parents were able to meet some of my healthcare team.
Since my red and white blood cell counts plummeted dangerously low after my seventh treatment, my doctor reduced the amount of the drug causing the issues (Carboplatin) by twenty percent last week before my eighth treatment. The reduction has helped my body tolerate the chemo much better.
