After a wonderful week off chemo, antibiotics and hospitals we are back on the poison. On monday we started the next block of Vega’s treatment regime, called escalating capizzi. The name alone sounds like trouble don’t you think? I had to remove the link for the ukall2003 trial and for Vega’s treatment protocol because they were not working anymore. the reason for this is that a new trial has just been started, called ukall2011 which they are ‘recruiting’ for at the moment. So any newly diagnosed children will now be offered to go on trial for ukall2011. this does not affect Vega or Vega’s treatment in any way so we potter on through our regime, but you won’t be able to have a picture reference until I figure out how to scan in the flowcharts. I have added some links in the medication category for any of you that are interested in Vega’s meds and to help you follow what I am going on about. After leaving hospital Vega was better than in a very long time. She looked bright and happy, was walking unaided, even if a little wobbly. The weather has been amazing and we had picnics in the park and mingled with children and adults, even eating strawberries (a no no when you are neutropenic!). On sunday we went to see Shrek the musical in London and Vega and Lyra both loved it.
