Scans Clean!

Just finished week #15. . .
Lauren had her abdominal ultrasound and chest x-ray, both of which were clean (no cancer). Her ANC is back up so she could get her treatment, and even her Hct is on the rise. Poor thing got sick again this time though, but thankfully we got home from dropping Brady off to Kindergarten just in time! The Dr. thought it might have been a fluke last time she was nauseated and vomiting (the day after chemo) but she did it again this week too the day after chemo. . .not really thinking it's a fluke. A little Zofran and she is feeling much better! She gets lab draws at home for 2 weeks and then (drum roll) her last doses of chemo in 3 weeks! YAY! It's hard to believe she is almost done with her treatment. She will get another set of imaging studies (CT vs US) 3 weeks after therapy and then every 3 months. The recurrence rate is pretty low thankfully. Only 1 out of 10 will reoccur, so hopefully she will be one of the 9!
