We went to the doctor again on Friday to get Karissa another round of IV fluids and blood tests. After the infusion, Dr T spoke with us and explained that her calcium is back to normal, but there are some problems with her liver function tests. She thinks her response to Carboplatin/Taxol was very short and that is probably no longer working.
Next week, as long as her blood counts are ok, she will probably start a new chemo called Navelbine. She is also planning on calling her doctor at Sloan Kettering to discuss trials she may be eligible for. We also have a nurse service coming in at least once a week to check on Karissa and we can call them 24/7 for help.
We have a lot of help coming next week to be around for Karissa and also to help keep the kids busy and happy.
