Sunday Update / Day 1 of Round 2

Last night was a little rough getting settled in, but Delaney woke up in a good mood. She still continues not to have much of an appetite or want to drink. This will continue to be a work in progress. Today Uncle Travis and Aunt Lacey came to cheer Delaney on, also not to forget the nurses and doctors on floor 10. Uncle Travis and aunt Lacey brought a few things to help Delaney get through the day, especially a cool, black, Team Delaney pumpkin. The plan for the day was to begin with anti-nausea medications at 930AM, and allow time for the medicine to take effect. Followed by starting chemotherapy around 1030AM. Chemotherapy will consist of Delaney receiving 3 different chemotherapy drugs and 1 rescue drug, MESNA, this will protect her bladder from aggressive chemotherapy. Today her chemotherapy treatment concluded around 2pm. After that she will be on her MESNA IV drip for twenty hours. Over the course of the chemotherapy Delaney did very well. As the afternoon and night went on the affects of chemotherapy were present. She began to have less energy, and seemed to become nauseated. Later this evening Delaney did vomit a little. Even though it is a little, it is something we try to manage. Fortunately Delaney's oncologist does not like for his patients to be sick, so he has several antiemetics on her file to help prevent the nausea. It looks like an early night for all of us tonight. Second day of round 2 will start tomorrow around the same time. Delaney will get 2 chemotherapy drugs along with the MESNA again. We are hoping for an uneventful night and a good day tomorrow. Looks like Delaney will fall asleep on Daddy again and Daddy will follow shortly after. In fact Daddy is drifting off as I finish this update. Thank you for the continued prayers and support. We are still in awe of the number of supporters our baby girl has and the flood of positive thoughts we continue to receive. Thank you all! GO TEAM DELANEY!!
