Then she is on the afternoon theatre list which starts at 1:30pm and at this point in time she is third on the list as they work in order of age. But of course things may change and I'm not yet sure what time we will be all done and ready to go home.
So apart from the Methotrexate (chemo) injected into her spine through a lumbar puncture, Bianca will also get Vincristine (chemo) which will probably be an IV infusion. I'm not sure if they will continue with the 400mg Acyclovir 4 times a day or whether it will be reduced and not too sure what they plan to do with regards to the Dexamethasone (steroid). At this point Bianca is still off the Dexamethasone and I'm not sure if they plan to start it again or change it for something else or keep her off the steroids completely. I will also have to discuss the IVIG transfusions with them and so it will be interesting to see whether Bianca will continue to get these or not.
And then, unless Bianca has become neutropenic since her last blood test, we will also have her daily oral Mercaptopurine (chemo) in the evening. At the moment she is sitting at 75% of the dose and it will be interesting to see if they up it or not.
It is starting to feel very real that Bianca will be at a new hospital where we don't yet know anybody and don't yet know the processes and things like that. It is comforting when things are familiar, but I feel confident that soon we will feel right at home.
