The last day of July, she was able to begin the last but longest phase of her therapy, called long term maintenance. She will finish this phase and her treatment in March of 2020.
We recently have been dealing with a few ER visits for fever, which is her protocol since her suppressed immune system compromises her ability to fight off simple infections.
We also have been working closely with the endocrine team because the steroid pulses which are part of her monthly chemotherapy cause blood sugar spikes while on the steroids and lows off the steroids. She has been diagnosed with Steroid Induced Diabetes and Adrenal Insufficiency.
So as grateful as we are for how she has been doing getting through teatment, we still have a long bumpy road ahead, and lots of hospital visits, planned and unplanned ahead. Donations towards our unending medical bills that insurance doesnt cover( Er and clinic and inpatient copays, prescription copays, parking fees at CCMC, etc) are always appreciated.
We are so thankful for all of you who have already donated to our previous YouCaring page and personally to us, and have supported us throughout this process and continue to do so. That page was taken down when GoFundMe bought YouCaring, so we have created this page for those that want to continue to support us.
