I was really worried about the ARA-C this round. Last round, it made him get these nasty rashes on his face, trunk, arms and legs, and since the dose is tenfold higher, I assumed he would turn into a beet. He actually hasn't really gotten that red, so I've been very thankful. Older kids in here will talk about how it burns and itches a lot, so I'm glad it's at least better than last time. However, the Etoposide (VP-16) has lowered his blood pressure, so he's gotten a few boluses (boli?) of saline to try to raise it.
Andrew has had a really hard time keeping anything down. He's been throwing up or gagging for much of the morning. He's only kept down a few gulps of milk before he's gone to sleep, but anyway... better go brush my teeth before he wakes up.
