Thursday, September 14, was Anne-Marie's third chemotherapy treatment.
Kara took Anne-Marie again this time. It worked well with her schedule because her mother was in town to watch her three little girls (maybe I'll post some pictures sometime).
Anne-Marie had already been to see Dr. Burgess the day before and was in a lot of pain. She went to the chemo appointment on a heavier dose of pain medication than normal, which made her very drowsy throughout the entire day.
All the blood work came back OK, so Anne-Marie was cleared to begin the chemo.
Extra anti-nausea medication was included in this treatment along with Ativan, adriamycin, and cytoxan. She was also prescribed and scheduled for a white blood cell booster injection (Neulasta). Mom brought her back to the Professional Plaza for that on Friday. The increased stimulation of white blood cell production should increase Anne-Marie's blood count and prevent her from returning to the hospital on the "low week" of the cycle.
The remaining chemo treatments have been scheduled and listed in the post above.
