I had a good chat with Dr. Barnette and he informed me that Erin's last round will be 21 to 25 days starting yesterday. So, our estimated GO HOME date would be roughly Dec 8 to Dec 12. But, Erin's counts always seem to come up quickly, so hopefully we'll be done before then. They will take her central line out of her chest roughly 2 to 4 weeks after we come home. That said, if she is on any IV antibiotics for her cellulitis then the central line would stay in place longer. I'm hoping to start 2011 without a central line sticking out of my daughter and with cancer far behind us!
Erin is tolerating her high doses of ARA-C (chemo) really well so far. She has had diarrhea, but she's still eating and playing. She has been tired a lot, but really pretty happy. Her hair is starting to grow back from being off chemo for a month. I hope it doesn't fall out from this last chemo round. It's been really exciting to feel her peach like head. She is excited too, and she says, "my hair is growing back."
