High dose chemo and beyond. Onwards and upwards hopefully!

Another continuation thread for Joseph's ongoing fight against the aggressive cancer, neuroblastoma.

Nice that Joe managed a smile, but sorry to hear that he did not feel like playing.

I hope that his digestive system starts working soon and that his thumb gets sorted.

Very much hope that he does not have VOD, all gingers crossed in every possible way.

Thinking of you all and wishing you lots of strength and positive energy,
Hoping that you all have a restful night,

IwishIwasmoreorganised Mon 25-Feb-13 21:54:23

Fingers crossed that his bowel starts working and his thumb infection clears up.

Hopefully you both get a good bit of rest and some more smiles tomorrow.


ShiftyFades Mon 25-Feb-13 21:56:28

Sploding in on the new thread. Gingers firmly crossed that the VOD doesn't transpire, that his digestive system starts working and that the over-sucked thumb starts healing.

Great news about the count though, hope those little fighters continue to multiply.

Always my my thoughts. Hope you get plenty of rest tonight xxx

Trazzle, I hope it's not the start of the VOD liver disease. I have my gingers crossed for Joe. X

TeaMakesItAllPossible Mon 25-Feb-13 22:39:27

Lovely to hear he is smiling at the telly.

Gingers crossed that VOD is avoided. Come on Joe. Yer big beauty!

Splodging and sending love from the south-west

tangledupinpoo Mon 25-Feb-13 23:04:53

Everything crossed here too that Joe doesn't develop VOD, and that he starts getting stronger and feeling more like playing very soon. Hope you both have a good, restful night. x

DH just texted to say he has just spiked a temperature so they are starting him on anti-fungals for his thumb (it has gone black so it's fairly dramatic). The temperature explains why he has been off-colour again today though.

Blood pressure is low again - far from ideal. Another long night, I suspect.

ninja Mon 25-Feb-13 23:14:38

Oh Trazzle, I'm sorry there's more to worry about. Hope that you manage to get some rest and that there's better news tomorrow {{{ }}}

dikkertjedap Mon 25-Feb-13 23:19:52

Poor Joe - so sorry to hear what a raw deal he is getting.

Hope that any pain is well controlled and that his temperature can be brought under control quickly.

Gingers crossed for the anti-fungals and his poor little thumb. sad

Sorry to hear that it looks like another stressful night for you and your DH, very much hope that Joe at least will manage to sleep.

Thinking of all the Trazzles,
