Weekly Clinic Appointment

Liam woke up really happy, but then wanted to lay down, and was sick for a while this morning.
This afternoon Liam has his checkup, bloodwork, and his weekly chemo, the weekly chemo is just injected, so it is quick. Because of Liam's symptoms, they put us in isolation, in an exam room, but the doctor is happy with how Liam is doing.

As expected today, Liam's blood counts are low, he's on the verge of needing a blood transfusion, but because he's looking and feeling pretty good, they didn't do one today. If Liam starts feeling worse, we'll take him in for one, it takes 3-4 hours, they'll do it as outpatient.

Cycle 1 Day 8 of 21
