Tomorrow (Weds) Mollie starts Interim Maintenance (IM) if all goes as planned. No spinal tap (yay!), but she will get IV and oral chemo, including methotrexate by mouth. This will be her first time taking oral methotrexate so we don't know how well she will tolerate it. She will also start a 5 day "pulse" of steroids. This is basically going to be a little taste of the long term maintenance (LTM) regimen she'll be on for about 2 years.
Consolidation was a breeze and we are hoping Mollie will tolerate this next phase just as well.
Requests: The child life specialist at the clinic said that she has a hard time finding "girl" toys to keep available because 1) they need to be able to be sanitized between kids (so no soft surfaces or wood) and 2) they can't be choking hazards. She's found a couple of "Dora" toys and Mrs. Potatohead, but not much more than that. Any ideas?
