Chemo Pack Came off Today!

Well today finished up Sheila's 4th round of chemo and the doctor took her chemo pack off that has been running for 5 days. Now she has to go back on Wednesday to have lab work where they will check her blood to see what the levels of platelets, white and red cells are. After the last 3 rounds of chemo she has had to have transfusions of whole blood and/or platelets. Then the plan is to give her 2 more rounds of a different kinds of chemo to really zap the leukemia into total remission. After the next 2 rounds of chemo she will be done. After that she will have to be monitored periodically to make sure it does not come back.

The pic today is of me and Sheila in the Smokie Mountains on our AT thru-hike. We woke up in the shelter and it had snowed during the night.
