Wednesday Update

Day 3 of round 3 is in the books. We are hoping this will be our last inpatient here at Kaiser Oakland. Delaney woke up around 5am this morning and was very cuddly. She cuddled Mommy for about another hour or so before waking to her usual energetic self. PT came by as well as Occupational Therapy. They are very pleased with Delaney's progress. She had fun doing stamps and playing with a peg board. 12pm rolls around and it's time for chemotherapy to begin. We were very anxious because today Delaney gets cisplatin. This chemotherapy drug causes serious nausea and vomiting. Daddy met with the pharmacist to make sure we had full doses of all of her antiemetics around the clock. The goals again today were simple, keep Delaney happy, no vomiting, no nausea. Chemotherapy finished up about 7pm and unfortunately We could tell Delaney wasn't feeling very well. She did have a very small vomiting episode. But all together today was still a good day. Delaney had a few visits from a few of her favorite nurses and doctors. This always cheers Delaney up! Another early night for Delaney. She was out by 7:30pm, which means we will have an early morning tomorrow. Mommy and Daddy are taking full advantage of the early bedtime and will join Delaney. We would like to take a moment to thank all of the staff here on the 10th floor Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Ward. You have all been amazing and we appreciate all of your patience and the excellent care provided for our angel. We hope the next time we see you is just for a visit!! We appreciate all of the love, prayers and support. GO TEAM DELANEY!!
