Autumn had a wonderful night last night. She fell asleep at 7pm, poor thing she was so tired! This morning she ate a bowl of cereal (hasn’t had that in awhile!) and some juice. She seems to be doing really well after her surgery almost a week ago!
We took Sage & Lindsey to school and then headed to Santa Barbara to meet with Dr Weisenburger (the Cottage Hospital Radiologist). He had to fit her for her 10 consecutive days of radiation which should begin no later than Monday. There are some side effects such as nausea, but the good news is that she is so brave and still that they won’t even need to drug her! They would have to use “Propofol” among other drugs, what a mess!
We will have to return on Wednesday in to have her stapes removed and her “portal” placed. It is a small device that will have a tube that is directed into her vena cave so they can administer the chemo as efficiently and painlessly as possible. It is all under the skin (it will stick up a bit) which means she can swim this summer and do all regular activities if she is healthy, good news!
