1st day of high dose chemo

10.3 kilograms or 22.7 pounds, 79.8 centimeters (she shouldn't get shorter because of the chemo, just kidding).

She's getting hydrated right now for 2 hours and the actual chemo will start about 11:00 am. They'll start with melphalan for 15 minutes and then the etoposide and carboplatin will be continuous. Our nurse is Melissa, we're in Train 3, Room 3282 at Seattle Children's Hospital. Beautiful sunny day so far and I guess we're ready to do this. Jovee's just eating Sun Chips this morning, a few bites of scrambled eggs and 2 pieces of mandarin oranges.
