Re: new to these boards
We are currently in delayed intensification. Kailee had a really rough beginning. She developed diabetes as a result of the steroids and then got a life threatening infection at a bone marrow biopsy site. Very scarey!!!! We were in the hospital for a very long time. Since early October she has been doing great. Consolidation and Interim Maintenance went very well. She was a bundle of energy and acted like her old self. I didn't want her to get any mouth sores from the methotrexate so we gave her glutamine to help with that. I don't know if she would have developed the mouth sores or not but wasn't about to take the chance. She has been through enough already. We are in the third week of DI. The steroids are very strong. We only have five more days of steroids for this phase. :0) Overall, Kailee has tolerated everything very well. I am amazed by her strength and courage. Every child reacts differently but you get lots of ideas.
