A few people have asked about Briley and how things were going since we're not out and about much these days. Briley is not feeling well at all for the past few days. She sleeps a lot and when she's not sleeping, she sits on the couch playing with the ipad or watching tv. It's hard seeing a once very active kid not feeling good. And the worse is yet to come. Alicia called the clinic earlier today about Briley's behavior and they said it was normal considering the chemo treatments she is undergoing. We are very happy that she has this 2 week break before the next round begins.
I think a lot of her not feeling good is also due to the steroids. We've went through this before and now going through it again. She's gain a ton of weight and eats non-stop. Her favorite movie right now is "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs". However, she will lose most of that weight and probably more during the next round of chemo. That's when the nausea and vomiting will begin.
Her hair is noticeable thinning out. It is a matter of time before it's all out. But that's the least of my worries right now.
She goes back to clinic on Thursday just for blood work. Her ANC is very low right now and they are wanting us to go all of the way to Ft. Worth for blood work because they are expecting her hemoglobin and platelets to be low and she'll need transfusions.
Thankfully her last dose of steroids will be on Wednesday night and that should be the end of steroids!!!!
Please continue to pray for her as she is not feeling well and still has very hard chemo in a little over a week and lets all pray for rain!!!
