WuWei - thanks for the tips, I'll check into all that. luckily she is still nursing, and nursing well - i will nurse her as long as she wants to, although i've heard that eventually most kids going through chemo lose their appetites and require a feeding tube
- but i'll pump to keep my supply up if that happens.
nmm2112 - good vibes from me to you for the jan 3rd tests. zoe starts chemo probably at the end of this week. treatment will run every 3 weeks for 6 cycles. each cycle involves 3-4 days of inpatient treatment, followed by about a week of staying in town near the hospital. so, about 10 days away from home at a time. yikes! meanwhile, my husband and 4 year old son will try to work and go to school and carry on with "normal" things as best they can. luckily we have a lot of financial, practical and emotional support to help us cope with all these changes. zoe does have a caringbridge website - it is a fantastic resource for keeping our family and friends and well-wishers up to date.
