My 14 yo niece gets treated for leukemia in Vancouver, B.C. They live on Vancouver Island so, since she was diagnosed in December 2013, have had to make frequent trips/stays to the mainland. Here is a recent list that my sister sent me of what she has gone through in the last 7 1/2 months:
99 days in Vancouver. 1 surgery. 2 bone marrow biopsies. 11 lumbar punctures. 26 nights in the hospital. 60 visits at the oncology clinic. 97 needles. 3 rushes to the ER. 5 blood transfusions. 71 doses of chemo. 14 weeks of oral chemo. 4 physiotherapist appointments, and 3 heart tests has brought me up to my 7 1/2 mark today. Can't believe how much has happened in such little time!
