So numerous of you have arrived at out due to the fact I shared Dominic’s prognosis a several months ago, asking how he was accomplishing and how his first therapy went.
At the stop of that week, he had a full-human body scan, experienced a central line positioned, and then started his first spherical of chemotherapy. This was the incredibly 1st treatment method he received…
In the times for the duration of the cure, he ran some fevers off and on, which required an excess night’s keep at the clinic, and he lost his urge for food for about a day and a 50 %, but then it little by little arrived back again.
He saved active with outings to the playroom on his floor, smaller Lego kits, a Kiwi & Co box, a mini Lite Brite, his new Nintendo Change, everyday bingo on the healthcare facility Television set, and loved to close each and every working day with the Paw Patrol film.
He arrived house feeling properly and did not pass up a defeat, running about and participating in with Joseph and Isabelle, and having fun with some wonderful climate outside the house. We had a pretty Easter all alongside one another at home 🐰
Having said that, that Sunday night time, he commenced working a fever, which we realized just after possessing a central line positioned, meant an automatic vacation to the ER and most possible a 2-3 day stay at the hospital, throughout which they operate blood cultures to make positive there isn’t an an infection. He was clear of an infection, but his counts ended up very low (he was considered “neutropenic”), so he experienced to keep until they had gotten up to a safe level. He was back again household on Thursday and rolled ideal into the weekend operating close to and participating in.
Apart from a few of times of minimal hunger, he has not been unwell as a result far. He did start out to shed his hair last week, so my husband gave him a excitement cut. Afterward, he looked in the mirror and explained, “I look spiffy!” Oh to have the self confidence, resiliency, and heart of a little one 💙
Following up is spherical two of chemotherapy, starting afterwards this week.
