Leukemia - How is Jemma? - Day 12
Once the lumber puncture was finished she had to remain on the IV while she was given another type of chemo. Around 2:00 the nurse came back and disconnected her, and we were then free to venture outdoors.
Notice how Jemma is dressed in the above photo. The temperature was 86 degrees F. It was sunny and hot. Since being diagnosed with Leukemia she is constantly complaining of being cold. Where as before I was the one wearing all the clothes. This is because the hemoglobin levels in her blood are not normal due to her Leukemia and treatment. Grandma - please send more beautiful hand knitted sweaters. She is wearing them constantly!
