We have been busy settling into our new home and life in Kona.
Finding new beaches and fun places to go.
Carmen and Trevor have been doing great with their swimming lessons and gymnastics.
It has been amazing to have Auntie Debbie visiting the last three weeks.
Heather and Carmen are in Oahu today and tomorrow for Carmen's treatment and to begin the next phase of Carmen's journey.
It is hard to believe how far our tough little princess has come since May 26th. The first 7 months of Carmen's Chemotherapy treatment are over. As I have mentioned before, this period is considered the most crucial part of Carmen journey and she has come through it brilliantly.
Below is a quick snap shot of Carmen's journey over the last 7 months.
- 11 days in the hospital
- 31 days at the PAU
- 20 round trip flights
- 11 sedations and Lumbar Punctures
- 89 total days of chemo-oral, IV, IT
She will also be on three oral Chemotherapy drugs to take at home;
- Decadron (steriod) 5 day per month
- Mercaptopurine 1 pill every day of Maintenance
- Methotrexate 11 pills at once every 8 days
In so many ways we feel fortunate and blessed that Carmen has come through the first 7 months so well, however we are nervous with what the next phase will bring for our little princess.
We know she will continue to fight the fight with the love and support of her family and friends.
Love Team White
