Finally, a bit of a break in round 9. In the previous 3, Kath had increasingly bad allergic reactions to Oxaliplatin. Rather than even more drugs, they went back to a lower dose of anti-histamines and steroids and slowed down the Oxaliplatin to a 6 hour infusion…. And it worked! I sat there like a sheep dog watching for the tell-tale rashes, and none thankfully came! While it meant an 11.5hr day, thats MUCH more preferable than having her tongue swell and throat close. It was nice to have a relatively smooth ride after the apprehension leading up to this round. Of course the worst effects are yet to come. Usually, Tuesday is the low point. The question of course is how low will low be. Still, the first part of the ride was relatively good, so lets take that!
Last one out tonight.
