Chemotherapy

Well we have news that the first lot of chemotherapy that Em has been receiving has not done a thing and it actual fact the tumour has grown.  Her oncologist has decided that he is going to change her chemo to a stronger one and really dose her up on it so on Monday we will make the trek up to the Royal Children's Hospital where we will be guests for three nights while they administer it.  She will given  two doses each day for 4 consecutive days and then repeat this process every month for goodness knows how long. 

I am just hoping and praying that this one will work.

There is a good chance that she will lose her hair and also become quite ill with this lot so am also praying that she gets through it ok.

A big thank you to everyone for their encouraging words, thoughts and best wishes.
