So we got up at 5am to get our butts moving for our 7:15am scheduled appointment at Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit. Our actual appointment isn’t until 7:45am but they tell us to arrive 30minutes early which translates to someone in the military as 6:30am arrival time as Kate and I are hanging out in the parking garage.
Our boys had to help us out this morning by getting themselves ready for school and Alex has to get himself on the bus.
So this is our 2nd Chemo treatment as part of the 4 week Induction Process before they begin the aggressive chemo treatments. We aren’t sure what that will entail but we know it is the same process they perform on kids with a higher success rate than an adult treatment.
My worry for this week is how Kate’s blood count will do being not monitored for a week. We know after last week that her count for hemoglobin and platelets and white blood cell count all decrease pretty quickly. I just don’t believe she will be able to go a full week without a blood transfusion. I suppose a question for Dr.Yang when we see him today.
