Katie is Active and Feeling Good

Katie is active and feeling good. She continues to attend full time school and participate in physical education. CPS screwed up her course work when Katie transferred to Houston so Katie was thrown into several courses that were not the same as she was taking in Houston. We requested of CPS, at the time, that the courses must match up. Leave it to the government to screw things up. Now Katie is struggling to catch up.

Medically, Katie continues to receive the IVC treatments 3 times a week along with nutritional support. She had an MRI done this morning to follow the progress. She had two ingrown toenails cut out in the afternoon. These had bothered her for months but they wouldn't cut them when she was on the chemo and had low blood and platelet counts. What a pain relief for her. Tomorrow on Wednesday she gets another IVC treatment, a Vit C plasma level, and then a comprehensive metablic panel on her blood. So you can see her treatments and condition is being monitored closely.

Katie said she does not want to go back to M.D. Anderson.
