Round 5 began today – LAST AND FINAL ROUND OF INDUCTION CHEMO! FUCK YOU CANCER!
Jackson’s number’s rebounded quicker than we expected after he was released from the hospital last Saturday, so today we are heading back to Yale for Jackson’s last and final round.
The day began early as I had to catch a 6:30am train to the city and Meredith and Jackson had to leave early to get to Yale by 9am to start hydrating. I tried to take our normal group photo before heading out without waking up Jackson, but as you can see from the picture above, that was not so successful.
This round is a repeat of the drugs Jackson had during Round 3 (cisplatin and etoposide) which he handled well.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that things go as smoothly this time.
