Monday Update and Progress

The night involved changing diapers constantly due to the MESNA drip over twenty hours. Delaney did not vomit last night and this is a relief to mommy and daddy. Delaney woke up happy and loving. Today was the start of day 2 of chemotherapy. She was a little more irritable today due to the chemotherapy. We met with the oncologist and talked about the treatment for today, it will consist 2 chemotherapy medications followed by another twenty hour MESNA IV drip. Like yesterday the nurse started the anti nausea medications 1 hour prior to chemotherapy, and treatment started right after that. Today grandma, grandpa, and of course her biggest fan ( little brother Merlin ) came to cheer Delaney on. Delaney did well and held her own through out the treatment. There were times where she was more irritable, and seemed nauseous, but powered through and has not vomited today. It is still extreme tough to for mommy and daddy, amongst all that goes on there is so much stress and anxiety that must be pushed down and away to stay stay focused for Delaney. She felt good enough go out in her Radio Flyer bike, to say hi and scare some of the nurses with a tiny light up pumpkin that made a witch like sound. This was very funny to her. Delaney also made a 5 second video clip saying "GO TEAM DELANEY ..... THANK YOU". It is another early night for Delaney, she fell asleep at 7pm. We are hoping she sleeps well. She will need her rest for the chemotherapy she will get tomorrow. Cisplatin, out of all of her chemotherapy drugs, has the most negative side effects including more nausea/vomiting and will lower her counts significantly. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support. As always GO TEAM DELANEY!
