While yesterday was a low key day for Morgan, today was quiet the opposite. The morning started with her having an echocardiogram followed by an appointment with her oncologist. While in the clinic, her port was accessed, labs drawn & IV chemotherapy started.
The chemotherapy itself took about an hour to run, but she had to be observed for an additional hour following it. This was the first time for Morgan to receive this particular drug, so certain precautions had to be taken. That said, I think she tolerated the procedure well, as she slept through the majority of it. This is likely due to the premedication that she received upon arrival.
Now, we wait and see how her body will respond to the chemo as it begins to do its job. Unfortunately, as her blood counts begin to drop there are many potential side effects that can occur. Fever being the most common. Let’s pray that they are minimal, if any.
On that note, I will end there. Please plan on meeting us back here on Friday for another update on Morgan & on her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Team-Morgan-1965696367072741/ , until then! Thank you, guys!
