Hannah started round 6 today at the clinic. All went well, and she experienced no symptoms. They also gave her another drug, an antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection from pneumonia. She hasn't had it yet during treatment, and the details were a bit sketchy today, so I will speak more with her doctor next week about.
Tonight she broke out with a rash on her chest and stomach. I called in just to be sure, and we're just watching it for now, no other symptoms. It's most likely a reaction to the antibiotic.
Her white counts were quite a bit lower than last week, reds looked good. Not too low to get the chemo though, so one week down out of the four. We'll see how the counts look next week.
Hannah also received a package this week from her friend Jake in Chicago. It was a group of cards from his class last year of 3rd graders with well wishes for Hannah. We had quite a fun time reading through all of them. Some of our favorites were "your heart and soul are valiant and so are you", "I have a pet hamster that bites me", "I'm sorry about your brain" and "I am very sympathetic in your illness" and many other fun cards. She loved getting those, thanks to Jake and Sue!
