It's good we’re not hard-core cussers because Emily repeats everything she hears! As it is, she knows the word "crap" and used it quite liberally this morning with the nurses. The PICC line they put in yesterday came out first thing this morning. So what did we get to do first thing but stick in a new IV!!!
The doctor said - infection or not - they are putting in the central line tomorrow so they can continue the antibiotics and begin the induction chemo.
The steroids they have her on have elevated blood sugar and super-elevated hunger. She is even stealing chocolate right out of her sister's hand. She wanted a cheeseburger at 10:30 last night, but I placated her with cereal and veggies. They will be stopping the steroids today. ~ Sonja
