This is Gina. Gina administered Spencer's first doses of chemo, Vincristine and Irinotecan (eye-rin-oh-TEE-kan) The Vincristine is just a one minute I.V. push and Irinotecan is for one hour. When she injected it he said "This is chemo? Chemo is easy". I love that kid. He started the evening out with some oxycodone, then on to his chemo, followed by prednisone and prevacid for his droopy face, and then ended with a nice cocktail of Phenergan and Benedryl. He had a delicious meal of steak, cupcakes, strawberry ice cream, and a roll! He ate tons! Yay, finally! He actually started with the cupcake and thought he was hilarious because he made such a mess!
Dr. Grimmer the ENT took his steri-strip off today and here is the scar! Chicks dig scars!
Phenergan and Benedryl, the perfect end to a very long day!
