Daddy's Home!! Delayed Intensification Day 4

Daddy's Home!!  That's me Tyson peeking over his shoulder

And here we are two days later at my clinic appointment.  I've been asking about when daddy is going to come to the horsey doctor with me again and finally he is here!

Waiting for my chemo to come in infusion.  I got to decorate a bird house.

I am super cool watching Magic School Bus in dad's sunglasses

See my bruises?  The day I started Delayed Intensification phase I almost immediately turned pale and started bruising, the chemo knocks down my blood counts.

Getting ready to take my meds...the first couple of days were hard cause I haven't taken pills for a couple of months, but now I'm taking them like a champ again.  Mom forgot to add my zofran pill to this mix.  Zofran helps me feel more like eating...the doxorubicin has done a number on my appetite.  I weigh 14.9 kg now...times that by 2.2 to figure out pounds.

When I first started learning to take pills root beer was the only thing that helped me get them down...so now I get root beer every time I take my meds.  A strawful of rootbeer helps the medicine go down...
