Today Skyler started Delayed Intensification. He received Vincristine and Doxorubicin. Doxo is one of the new drugs in this phase. We were going to just start off with half a dose and see how he responds to it, but Dr. Lemons decided to go ahead with the full dose today. He is hopeful that since he has done so well these past few months that he will do well with this. I hope he is right. After he got his chemo we went down to RTU for a bone marrow aspirate and LP. He had such a hard time today not being able to eat or drink anything before the anesthesia. I kept having to remind him that he could get a red slushy and Popsicle when he was done. Today was pretty rough for him. As me and my mom were out in the hall waiting for him to wake up in the recovery room, I heard him start crying really loud so I hurried back there. He was really upset as he was waking up. He kept crying and saying he felt dizzy. He hasnt ever woken up like that before. Once he was able to get his slushy, Popsicle and Cheetos he did better. He still was dizzy for awhile though. Luckily he was able to get his chemo before we went down to RTU so we were able to just go home afterward. When we got home he was doing really well. He was really happy and had tons of energy. He was also eating great. About an hour ago though he started complaining of a headache and also said his back was sore (where they took bone marrow) He is sleeping now so hopefully when he wakes up he will start to feel better. Good job today Skyler, I love you so much and Im so proud of you!!
