Homecoming - Last Difficult Chemo is FINISHED

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are pleased to announce we are home from our four day hospital stay! As I have said before these drugs are very difficult on Audrey and she did suffer some very negative side-effects for a good portion of the time we were in the hospital. She is doing very well now. She lacks appetite but she has been very good about getting the fluids she needs. She is also a trooper with taking the anti-nausea medicine (a pill that dissolves in her mouth) and she is dealing with the nightly shot that she has to endure for the next two weeks fairly well.

We now have two more scheduled chemo sessions. We wait for her numbers to get to their magical spots before we can move on. It looks like it will be about another 12 weeks based on how long it has been taking. However, we are so grateful to be finished with this difficult hospitalization as the other chemo drugs do not have nearly the same negative side-effects as this one.

YAY!!!!!!!! I'm so glad you were able to finally get that one done. Maybe now there can be a little light at the end of the tunnel.

You did it! I am so glad you all can move on from the really hard part. Congrats! Whoever Audrey marries is going to be so blessed to have such a STRONG wife! She has endured things that adults have trouble with and she is still smiling in all your pictures! Love that sweet girl!
