June 11th a few more photos…

So far Dominique has been as expected.  I always get fooled every cycle.  I think to myself “Dominique doesn’t seem to be sick anymore…maybe I can stop giving her the anti nausea drugs” but really it is the anti nausea drugs that are preventing her from getting sick.  So I made the same error today […]

June 7th Last day of chemo!

Dominique was really tired in the clinic on this day and didn’t do any playing at all.  She spent most of the time on our lap watching videos then was curling up in a ball on the couch trying to sleep.  We went to the store ahead of time to get Dominique her congratulations balloon for her […]

June 6th Almost done!

Yesterday, after Dominique woke up from her nap, she was quite nauseated and couldn’t keep her dinner down.  She is also really frustrated because she wants her bottle but can’t drink it for some reason.  I have tried all types of cups and glasses to get any type of fluid in her.  My guess is […]

June 5th 1st day of cycle 4 chemo.

The clinic was very busy this morning.  It took about 45 minutes for Dominique to get all hooked up to her chemo.  Angela was in the clinic to visit us while Alexandra was having an MRI done.  There were quite a few new faces in the clinic today.  In one case a family was sent to the […]

June 4th ready for the final round!

Dominique had a blood test today.  Results show she’s ready for chemo tomorrow!  Our appointment is at 9:45am and we should be in the clinic for most of the day.  Tomorrow Dominique receives Carboplatin, Doxorubicin and Etoposide.  Thursday and Friday are shorter days- Dominique receives Etoposide only. Overall, Dominique has done well with this last cycle of […]

May29th So far so good…

Dominique had her blood test today and the results are very good.  This surprises me because she has been incredibly tired lately.  She sleeps 10-11 hours at night then has two naps a day 1 1/2 -2 hours each.  It appears that her 4th and final round of chemo will happen as scheduled.  Her next blood […]

May 28th 3 months since diagnosis

It is hard to believe it has been 3 mos since that horrible day of finding out Dominique has cancer.  I know I will never forget that day. Time spent at the hospital this month was approximately 20 hours.  This month was much slower than the others. Our total hours spent in the hospital since diagnosis […]

May 24th I did it for Dom!

I have procrastinated for a long time.  1996 was the last time I donated blood- It was run by the Red Cross back then. But lately with Dom receiving 3 transfusions, and seeing all the other children with cancer receive transfusions, donating blood has been on my mind a lot lately. A nurse at the clinic informed me […]

May 22nd Some good numbers

Today Dom had her usual post chemo appointment to check her blood counts to see if she needs a transfusion and her ability to fight infection (white blood cells).  The numbers are much better, so far, this time.  Her ANC (infection fighting white blood cell) is at 2.46.  Dr. Bond has let us stop the G-CSF injections after today […]

May 20th Weekend summary

Dom has been in a happy mood for most of the weekend.  However, she has been nauseated and vomited a few times. She has also had some rough nights where she wakes up screaming and crying.  Last night it was really bad…she kicked and screamed for a good 10 minutes before we could settle her down.  It’s frustrating […]
