Last Round of Chemo?

Ava started her 5-day treatment of chemo today. This may be her last round of chemo before heading out to Seattle. She's getting nelarabine, etoposide and cyclophosphamide this week. You may remember that nelarabine has the potential to cause some serious nervous system side effects. Please pray that Ava would display none of them!

Their original plan was to keep Ava at Lurie's the whole week during chemo. However, if she does well through tomorrow, they will consider letting her get chemo on an outpatient basis for the remainder of the week! That would be great - even though she would need to be at Lurie's for a full 8 hrs, the prospect of going home to sleep in her own bed at night is definitely appealing!

Thank you for your continued prayers!
