Bone Marrow Biopsy & Chemo Session 14

Brax had another good day today. She had her bone marrow biopsy done this morning and we are hoping to get preliminary results back tomorrow, with final results coming Monday. They also increased her IT chemo today to try and kill whatever is left in her CSF. The IT Triple (or ITT) today consisted of methotrexate, cytarabine, and hydrocortisone. She had no IV chemo today, and as of now, the new cycle will start this coming Tuesday instead of Thursday. We are praying for good results come Monday and to keep on the current track moving forward.

Band-Aid covering her lumbar puncture where they draw CSF and administer IT Chemo. Big bandage over area they did bone marrow biopsy. The bandage makes it looks worse than it is, but still will be sore for a day or two. They compare it to slipping on the ice and falling on your hip/tailbone.

The only thing she’s not loving is that she woke up with a rash out of no where this AM so we are trying to figure that out. Nothing has changed much and the team is thinking it may be a reaction to her antibiotics. They are going to switch her this evening to something different and see if that clears it up. It doesn’t hurt, but does itch and it’s more annoying than anything.

Also, Team Brax bracelets are in! We sent hundreds to the gym to be passed out and we will be getting them to everyone else that has asked as soon as able. Thanks for “wearing” your support – Team Brax appreciates it! Also, if you want bracelets and haven’t already reached out or are not local, just let us know (contact info on the FAQ page).

Thanks again to everyone for the calls, texts, emails, Facetime, and gifts. It keeps all of Team Brax motivated and encouraged!
