So quite a few of you have attained out due to the fact I shared Dominic’s diagnosis a couple of months back, asking how he was doing and how his to start with therapy went.
At the end of that week, he had a total-human body scan, experienced a central line positioned, and then commenced his 1st spherical of chemotherapy. This was the incredibly first treatment method he received…
In the times for the duration of the treatment, he ran some fevers off and on, which demanded an extra night’s remain at the hospital, and he missing his urge for food for about a working day and a 50 percent, but then it steadily arrived back again.
He saved hectic with excursions to the playroom on his ground, compact Lego kits, a Kiwi & Co box, a mini Lite Brite, his new Nintendo Swap, every day bingo on the hospital Tv set, and liked to end just about every working day with the Paw Patrol motion picture.
He arrived home feeling properly and didn’t miss a defeat, running all over and enjoying with Joseph and Isabelle, and experiencing some gorgeous weather outside the house. We experienced a wonderful Easter all with each other at household 🐰
However, that Sunday night, he commenced operating a fever, which we understood following obtaining a central line positioned, intended an automatic journey to the ER and most most likely a 2-3 day keep at the hospital, during which they run blood cultures to make guaranteed there is not an infection. He was clear of an an infection, but his counts were being extremely low (he was deemed “neutropenic”), so he had to continue to be right until they had gotten up to a safe stage. He was again property on Thursday and rolled appropriate into the weekend working close to and participating in.
Aside from a few of days of minimal urge for food, he hasn’t been sick therefore much. He did begin to reduce his hair past 7 days, so my spouse gave him a buzz slice. Afterward, he seemed in the mirror and claimed, “I appear spiffy!” Oh to have the confidence, resiliency, and coronary heart of a baby 💙
Future up is round two of chemotherapy, beginning later on this 7 days.
