Medical Update

Kezia's counts still good so she continues with 6-MP and oral MTX and also starts the dreaded 5 days of Dexamethasone.. Also had her monthly vincristine injection today. We have now finished the first of six maintenance cycles.

Lauren and Rob's Fergus has had his portacath removed. Congratulations! Funny how procedures stateside and in the UK differ - Kezia had her Hickman Line removed a month or so back and they didn't install a portacath to replace it - they only install a portacath in the occasional case when a child cannot cope with injections. Kezia only gets an injection once a month and copes with it well.
