I spent the day with Alice as Thiotepa and Melphalan made its way though her tubes and into her chest for the last time. The chemo is really aggressive and requires us to bath Alice three times a day. The baths are necessary as the Thiotepa secretes out of her skin and can leave burns. We are also required to change her bedding the same amount of times. It really is a pain, we can only hope to stay ahead of it so that she doesn't get the rashes and burns. So far from what I can tell the only signs of the Thiotepa treatments I can see are her rosy red cheeks. We played games and solved puzzles today until she felt too sick to do so. I found it interesting that although she felt sick a couple times today it only lasted for a little while until she felt better again and we were having a foot race from one end of the room to the other. She loves to run, when she can. Tomorrow will be a rest day for Alice and I'm really happy for her.
