Lamentations 3:25-26 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
Yet another Monday in the hospital.... Lehr stayed with Ruby for the last 36 hours, during which time she did have a fever. With no immune system, it's hard to fight off germs, in or out of the hospital! Her temp went back down quickly, but she still has to receive antibiotics every eight hours, which started Saturday night. That also means she is hooked up to an IV fluid 'pole' that makes being 2-years old hard. Lehr was able to get her to ride on the cart to move around the hospital yesterday, but so far today, she's not having much of that. (Lehr also got a lot of extra cuddles from his girl who was feeling a little extra snuggly during her fever.)
Ruby's cycles of treatment should last 28 days from day 1 chemo start to day 28 being the her fully recovered and ready to start another round. Tomorrow is day 28 for her, so it's safe to say we will not start round 3 on this Wednesday, as originally planned. Delays in the schedule are typical and usually come in this fashion: fever/infection delaying the number recovery portion of the cycle. Today the team said based on her going home this week, she would start round 3 next Wednesday.
