Round 2 recap
Compared to round 1- round 2 was MUCH, MUCH smoother. Chris, Eleanor, and I had a much better understanding of what to expect and began to settle in to a routine while living at the hospital. Her chemo regimen changed slightly; however, she received the same TYPES of chemo. This round she only received chemo for 8 straight days instead of 10 like the first round. We enjoyed many fun COA activities including the Candy land event, Easter egg hunt, crafts with the Child Life Specialists, and St. Patrick's Day.
