1st Day in Hospital

posted Mar 22, 2013, 8:40 PM by FightingFor Mya

I called Ray this evening to see how the day went for both of them. He said that Mya got the 1st drug last night around midnight. She finished early this morning. It made her sick a few times today. The nurses gave her Benadryl, which made her sleep. This is really a good thing, because it helps the time pass and allow her body to process the drug.

Ray said that their roommate left today. The mother of the child in the room had a rough night. Ray thinks she had food poisoning or something like it. I guess she was up half the night in the bathroom. Unfortunately, that meant that Ray didn't get a lot of sleep last night. He thinks we won't get a roommate this weekend, cross your fingers everyone!

So, for tomorrow, I'll go down in the late afternoon to relieve Ray and give him a chance to get a good nights sleep.

The nurses & doctors are hoping that Mya will be ready for the 2nd chemo drug by Sunday night. In the past, her system has processed the 1st drug pretty quickly. However, things are progressing slower because she has had chemo so manyh times now. All we can do is wait and see.

I'll try to post tomorrow night to let everyone know how Mya's doing. :)
