July 6 Updates:
Chinus' first cycle of Chemotherapy ended last a couple of days ago.The tests on the bone marrow revealed that the 1st cycle had a some effect on reducing the WBC count but it was not good enough to declare the 1st cycle a success.
Her Platelet counts had decreased and the decrease in the Platelets was suppletmented by Platelet Transfusion, which had to be from a non-related donor. We really are thankful to Mangesh for his invaluable donation.
The doctors have moved her to a sterilized room and have started a Second cycle on Intense Chemotherapy. This meant that she be moved to a sterilized room where no one is allowed to be with her except for one person who is also sterilized and has to be with her for about 12 hours.
All her books have to be sterilized for each and every page and same so do her puzzles and games.The medicines are too strong for her and she has a hard time having her food. She is given the required hydration externally through IV Fluids(Saline Solution).
The second cycle of Intense Chemotherapy will continue for a couple of weeks and then the next step will be depended on the results for the Second Cycle.
