Olivia enjoyed decorating trees and gingerbread houses over the weekend with her siblings! Since she spends so much time at home and loves the holidays she was more than “encouraging” us to get the house ready for Christmas!
This week she was supposed to have her 3rd cycle of the chemotherapy Nalarabine, but because of a shortage we are scheduled for next week. The doctors are not concerned with the extra week between treatments. I can only hope the reason for the shortage is that this chemo is doing wonders to cure cancer and everyone wants it! As we’ve mentioned before, Olivia has been able to handle the nalarabine better than any other chemo....no hair loss, no nausea, nothing we can visibly see it doing damage to her body! Her appointments are scheduled for next Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we hope for great traveling weather for the three trips to Indy!
Olivia is part of F.I.S.T. (Forever Improving Steuben county Together). This is a philanthropy group for students in the 3 Steuben county school. Olivia was chosen in 7th grade to represent her class throughout her middle school and high school career!
