Going home, finally! We planned on leaving at 6am as her meds were done at 4:30am. However her magnesium was low, so they gave an infusion and we are now leaving at 12:30 with normal levels!
Side note: Ten got fitted for her wig Friday! It’s so close to her natural color and she’s super excited!
SCANS ARE CLEAR AGAIN!!! They look the same as last time (which is good)! Everything is clear, but the end of her spine still lights up a little bit, this is probably still effects of the radiation. But nothing to worry about!
Tenley has a hearing test before each chemo round, because the chemo can effect her hearing. This time they found that she has a “grade one hearing loss”. This isn’t too much of a concern, but they will continue monitoring it so it doesn’t get any worse. If it gets worse they will adjust the amount of chemo she gets, but at this time they feel the chemo amount is more beneficial, and they don’t want to reduce it. They said it can be fixed with hearing aids if it’s really bothering her. The little side effects of chemo are starting to add up.
As for now chemo round four is up and running!! We were hoping to get things stated earlier as things have to fall perfectly into place to get out of here Friday night, but looks like that won’t be happening... again.
I posted a picture of a book and I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this book. It was very difficult for me to read, having to take frequent breaks in the waiting room while Ten had her MRI. It is crazy how much we can relate to this book, and how much is different. It was very emotional and brought back the exact feelings I had during surgery,scans,etc. Its very relatable to brain tumor diagnosis and cancer in general. I read it in less than a day! We downloaded and bought it on Walmartebooks, but it’s available on Amazon! (I already posted this on Facebook, sorry!)
