Chemo

Well chemotherapy for Miss Emma did not go as planned... She had her MRI on the Thursday and it showed that the tumour has not shrunk :-( but it also hasn't grown :-)  Her oncologist decided to change her chemotherapy protocol again as he wasn't happy with the results.  So she is now on Irinotecan x 5 days and Vincristine.  This will happen every third week.  We are out patients though which makes it a little easier on us.  She is not handling this one too well and is finding it making her a little sick.  She is tough and will get through it.  The plan is for her to have two cycles of this and then another MRI.  If there is shrinkage then she stays on it.  If not then we try something else :-(

So many chemicals being pumped into my babys poor body

Praying that God will make it his will to cure Emma of her cancer

God Bless
Leanne :-)
