Well Kayla just got done with hospital stay #8. Of course she developed a fever again, so Jimmy took her this time. Good thing that she went though b/c they found out that her kidneys weren't filtering the chemo very well. So she had to have tons and tons of fluids pumped into her to help them along. Ugh. This is a new chemo and she will be getting it every 10 days. One of the dr.s told me that some kids only have a kidney problem the first time and then they are good. I hope that she is one of those kids.

I am constantly taking her temp. I am so scared that she will develop a fever and she will have to go back. It's not so much that she has a fever it's the trip to the hospital. Because more times than not it is late at night. It really sucks when that happens.

Other than that she is doing pretty good. We are taking it day by day.

Jimmy is good. He is actually at his chemo appt. right now. He has 3 treatments after this and *hopefully* he will be done. We won't know anything until he gets his PET scan.
