Chemo Week #6

posted Nov 30, 2010, 6:42 AM by Albert Gibson

Potter gets another dose of Vincristine, a chemotherapy drug he has had twice before.  He will normally start showing some effects a few days after it is administered, then begin to perk up just in time for his next treatment.

Potter had another high dose of chemo this week, but thankfully he will not have to go back during the Thanksgiving holiday.  He resumes his treatment in two weeks. 

Chemo Week #3

posted Nov 3, 2010, 12:16 PM by Albert Gibson

Potter was given a high dose chemotherapy drug coupled with a diuretic in order to clear his system as soon as possible.  His glands remain their normal size and his energy is moderate.  So far we haven't had any vomiting, hair loss, or diarrhea.

Potter received his second week of chemotherapy and seems to be reacting well.  Lymphs are receding and his spirits are high!
