Sorry for the delay in updating. We have had a busy week.

Karly completed 5 radiation treatments this past week and now only has 26 more to go. She say it is easy and it only takes about 20 minutes. We met with Dr. Mahajan on Tuesday and she said any side effects that Karly might have probably would not start for 3 or 4 weeks.

Thursday, Karly went in for lab work and her doctor's visit. After the lab results came back we thought she might be getting platelets on Friday. Friday's lab results showed that her platelets had not increase or decreased but she did not have to receive any platelets. Her white count was very low (1,000) so I had to start giving her injections again in hopes that her counts will be up so she can begin chemo cycle #11 on Monday.

Friday was an exciting day at MDACC we got to witness a little boy(maybe 3) ring the bell in the pedi clinic. While in radiation we got to see 3 people do the same thing. The ringing of the bell is the sign of the end of treatment.
