Tuesday News

Good news: Kyrie's blood counts are up again, which means that the Neupogen injections that Jordan gives her are working. However, it looks like we'll have to start another intravenous routine. Kyrie has always been and continues to be in the 90th percentile for her height compared to other kids, but due to the vomiting and appetite loss, she's losing too much weight. Her doctor is starting her IV food today. Pharma-Care will be bringing out a pump and a week's supply of the liquid supplements. The doctor told Jordan and Lacie that it looks like milk and is packed with proteins, fat, sugars and calories.

The chemo's side effects continue; Kyrie is still gagging without warning. Yesterday, Jordan and Lacie received more Kytril to help calm her gag reflex and hopefully lessen the vomitting. They had to wash That twice last night after she had been sick on it. Gotta love a friend like That.

And ... since Kyrie chooses to go from room to room, she now has TWO dogs set up! Check out the new pup!
