Delaney is beginning the countdown to the end of her treatment, one fierce day at a time. Delaney is doing well and handling her treatment smoothly. As her treatment comes to a close, nothing gets easier. Every test, procedure, and recovery brings a tangled ball of emotions. Delaney had an appointment with her pediatric neuro oncologist. There were many things discussed at length and detail. Overall Delaney has done an amazing job going through her treatment protocol. Her final radiation treatment will be on Wednesday, for a total of 28 days of radiation. As a result Delaney will have swelling on her brain for the next 6 weeks and once the swelling has gone down she will have another MRI. But the month following her radiation treatment Delaney will again have a list of tests performed to see if there are any side effects from the chemotherapy, and radiation. The tests include a renogram for kidney function, echocardiogram for cardiac output, blood work for her liver function, hearing test, vision test and a lumbar puncture to test her spinal fluid. Although her treatment is coming to a close Delaney will have many years of physical therapy and tests performed. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support! As always.... GO TEAM DELANEY!!
