3APR2014

The day started pretty good with Whitney getting the issue with the pic line resolved fairly early in the day. We met with the treatment team and expressed our concerns about the fine motor skill issues that Whitney is having and urged the lead doctor to include a neurologist on the team. After a little discussion and some observation, the team agreed to that. Later in the day we had a meeting with the neurologist and they agreed to review current meds and provide their expertise to the discussion.

Day 2 of chemo went pretty good, her blood counts dropped below minimums and they had to perform her first blood transfusion after lunch. Her condition seemed to improve by later in the afternoon, and by the time our visitors got here she was doing the best she had since we got here on Friday. Keeping food down is still a major hurdle right now along with the fine motor skill issue, but she showed improvement.

Overall, today was a good day.

Thanks you Keith, Marie and Jessica for visiting Whitney today.
