Leukemia - How is Jemma? - Day 200

Our big news doesn't have anything to do with Jemma and I'm bursting with excitement. Speed! is now in the iPad App Store. Check it out! My husband did an awesome job developing this skip-counting math game.

Overall Jemma is doing as well as can be expected given all the medications she is taking. We visited the hospital this afternoon for a blood check after missing the morning appointment. I called this afternoon to find out when we were supposed to come again and they said I was supposed to be there in the morning. Oops. Bad Mommy.

Anyway, her blood is good with the exception of coagulation. She had issues with this during Phase 1A as the medication L'asparaginase can lead to extreme clotting or bleeding. Since she has only received the first of her ten doses of this medication we will be visiting frequently to have her coagulation monitored. On Monday during her next chemotherapy visit she will likely be given a medication to combat this issue.

I've been very busy over the past week reorganizing my blog. There is now a Leukemia page along with several other pages at the top. I hope that this page will make it easier to find previous posts on Jemma as well as posts on our homeschooling adventures.
