As I wrote earlier in the week, Kayla had her last scheduled chemotherapy treatment on Monday. You would have thought that it would have been a great week. We could go back to our normal routine until her next follow-up visit on December 3rd. We’d all be in a celebratory mood. Yay! Kayla is done… Continue reading In a funk
Kayla finished her last chemo treatment yesterday. We were blessed to have my dad and stepmom here with us. We were blessed to have a wonderful oncology nurse give Kayla her last treatment. The nurse was an older woman and we’d never had her before. She gave Kayla a hug and she talked to Kayla… Continue reading Last chemo treatment

Kayla was discharged from the hospital on Friday after having her first week of inpatient chemotherapy. She was pretty wiped out and slept all afternoon. She ate a bit of dinner and then went back to sleep. On Saturday, she spent the day feeling miserable because she hadn’t pooped in about 5 days. She was… Continue reading Well, that sucked.
