Daughter has become swollen. They've put her chemo up to 80% and her counts have plummeted. We are at home waiting the results of lots of tests. They are looking at her thyroid, her kidneys and tomorrow she will have an ultrasound of her liver. She had a scheduled MRI at the start of the week to test the state of the iron overload she has in her blood - whether this is affecting her organs.
They have to have the medicine, but the medicine is dangerous.
I keep looking around me and wondering how the heck this is now our life.
