Saturday, Round 4 Day 2 Chemo

Delaney turned in early last night, 630 pm, Daddy slept right by her side, however her diapers must be changed every 2 hours or sooner, and she needed her third bath at 10 pm. Delaney slept well and did not vomit over night. Delaney woke up 445am happy and asking for Mommy, so Daddy and Mommy switched and Mommy cuddled with Delaney. Her anti nausea meds were on board and before we knew it chemotherapy was underway at 9am. Her chemotherapy treatment ended at 1pm, she did great and so far has taken the big doses in stride, and thankfully with no complications. Delaney had her first bath at 10am and snacked on some honeydew. Delaney's new thing is she likes candy canes, which Mommy bought the other day, to keep her tasting food and to keep food a fun idea, because Delaney does not necessarily enjoy eating. The Bone Marrow Doctor came to see how Delaney was doing and they said she was doing great, and that transplant to rescue herself is still set for 1030am Monday. Tomorrow Delaney will have a day of rest. She will need it; the chemotherapy has made her very tired and fatigued. Delaney has been asking to go home a lot, she really does miss her baby! The rest of the day was somewhat quiet. Due to the chemotherapy drug, Thiotepa. We again had to change Delaney's Broviac dressing. Delaney's nurse made it fun and let Delaney help her with the adhesive remover, which is great because we always try to include Delaney in her care, when we can. Delaney played the Palace Pets game on the iPad, watched a little tv, stamped and before we knew it, she was out by 5pm. We thought only for a nap, but it is now 8:30pm and she is still asleep. Mommy and Daddy are going to try to get in a little nap before we have to give her a bath at 10pm. We are so blessed to have such a strong and fierce baby girl. Thank you all for the love, prayers and support. As always.....GO TEAM DELANEY!
