Battered and Bruised

Is what my family is feeling lately. Emily got her stem cell transplant last month. And yesterday, we got news that her ALL reoccurred. 1 week after she turned 14. This is now her 5th relapse.

My mom has yet to complete a cycle of chemo her cycles of Gemzaar and cisplatin are in groups of 3. She is very intolerant of cisplatin - or more accurately the amount of IVF needed - so it was switched to carboplatin. At any rate, she has had 2 doses (not rounds, DOSES) of chemo. It's now been 8 weeks. She goes Thursday for another dose...assuming it doesn't get scrubbed for whatever reason (last time was thrombocytopenia, time before was for neutropenia/sepsis, lather rinse repeat).
