Today was our regular hospital visit with blood test, doctor's visit, Vincristine and an IVIG transfusion and of course our close "friend" Dexamethasone. I am so not going to miss steroids when treatment is over. It seems as if this week will be a fairly sad and emotional one as Bianca had a few sad moments tonight (and that is after only 2 doses). Oh well, at least we take the last dose for this month on Friday, so only 4 more days to go. Bianca's counts all look really good and she remains on full dose chemo.
There are a number of things I am thinking of to mark the end of treatment. I can't see that we will have lots of people interested in a party and certainly those family members who would be interested are all based overseas, so it seems as if we will just have a small something with just us. And that is fine. We will mark it though with something that will be special for Bianca and once I have finalised what we are planning I will share a bit more information. However with the very little time left now, it does mean that I have to get myself going and start working on this art work creation thingy I plan on making so it can be done shortly after the 11th of September.
I also need to start counting beads soon. It will be interesting to see how many beads we have collected throughout our journey. What a wonderful initiative to be part of!
