After several weeks of delay due to low platelet counts, Lizzy was admitted this morning in Cincy to begin her final 3 week treatment cycle!! Her counts were just barely high enough today, but it was enough and that’s all that matters! Thank you so much to everyone who has prayed so earnestly for her counts to go up!
With the admission today, the clock starts ticking toward end of treatment. She will receive chemo today, then be discharged tomorrow. Next week, she will get an outpatient treatment, and the following week she will get an outpatient treatment, and then TREATMENT IS FINISHED!!
After the last outpatient treatment, we will wait about 2 weeks and then she will get a set of scans to establish a new baseline to use as comparison for all subsequent scans over the next few years. About 2 or 3 days after the scans, she will have an outpatient surgery to remove her port, and then we are finished!
We have 2 exciting announcements about upcoming celebrations, so watch for another post (hopefully tomorrow) detailing those events.
