Journal entry by Mayzie Walker

Last day of chemo ✅ 

It was a great day! Everything went really good. Ten had a hearing aid consultation and has a fitting next time we are in Rochester. Met with a different oncologist, hers was at the hospital, talked about how’s she’s feeling, blood counts, and what’s next. I forgot to mention ten was in the ER twice since the big round of chemo, once for her Neulasta injection, once for not feeling good. Everything checked out counts were good and some fluids did the trick. 
We talked about that today, planned to check counts Friday. Her hemoglobin was low 7.9, so won’t be suprised if she gets an infusion Friday. 

Chemo went really good! Just a short infusion and we were out of there! I suprised Ten with the shirt and sweatshirt pictured today (thank you Allison Herman), she was super excited. She received a pin for completing chemo and the nurses on the pediatrics floor made her a sign, along with many congratulations. Thank you everyone for posting pictures and your reassuring words. The support we have had this journey has been unbelievable .It just doesn’t seem real that we won’t have to do it again. Ten still has a lot of recovering to do, but she’s very excited to be done with treatment.

I’ll post another update soon, about what’s next for us. For now, we are both going to bed it’s been a very long day! Next time we are in Rochester is February 3rd for scans!
