Erin is still not up to writing so I thought I would bring you all up to date. She started the highdose chemo on Wednesday Feb 15th. Anna was here for 2 weeks and was faced with the most difficult task of watching the poison do its damage. There are no words to describe the difficult task of caregiving during this time. Erin’s friends have been ever present even during the middle of the night and standing along side Anna through the chemo to the very end.
The chemo was 4 days long and at the end of that the nausea and other side effects began. She is struggling with mouth sores which have made it impossible for her to eat. We are seeing improvement everyday and tonight she was able to eat some soup and mashed potatoes.
Her white blood cell count came up a little bit today and the doctors think she is turning a corner! If things continue to improve she may be able to go home Tuesday or Wednesday.
Thanks to everyone for all your prayers.
