Day 2

This round is turning out to be a bit harder than I had anticipated. Aubree is having a rough time. The drug that has gone up a lot, ara-c, is really causing problems. She is getting rashes and the dreaded fevers. Well not real fevers, they go up just enough to be considered a fever and they hover there. Its so hard because of the last round and the battle we had with them. Her heart rate is also a million miles a minute. The first I noticed was yesterday and she was around 160, this morning she was around 180! Its so hard not to freak out. The Dr's are trying to figure out what is wrong but I think that the high heart rate is pain. After we figured out her dosage and she was getting enough she was able to go to sleep finally. Did I mention that she is not sleeping? Just when she gets comfortable enough to sleep, something keeps her up. She did not sleep at all yesterday, 45 minutes between two naps, and then last night she didnt sleep much either. This morning was really hard because it was flash backs to a couple of weeks ago! But we only have three more days of the chemo drug starting day 3 tonight. I hope that we figure out what is going on so that she is more comfortable and we can make it through this round with my nerves in tack!


  1. Thanks for keeping us informed. We will continue to pray for her and your family.

  2. Sorry to hear about those same nasty symptoms! Aubree is really such a darling little girl. Yeah, Andrew got some pretty nasty rashes from the ARA-C this last round--I can't imagine having 10 times that dose! Only one more round for Aubree after this one, though. We'll keep praying that she feels comfortable and happy.
