In about an hour, we are scheduled to be at the hospital, where Emma will be sedated once again.
This will be the eight time we do this.
First up, she will undergo an MRI, a magnetic x-ray that will tell us a little more about what’s going on inside her hear. If the tumour has shrunk at all, if we are still rock solid at this status quo that have marked our time here…
… or worse. If her tumour has grown.
It is always with agony you await these results. We don’t have to wait more than a few hours for a preliminary result though, which helps.
Once her MRI is done, she will be moved into another room, where they will insert a micro catheter through her groin, leading all the way up into her head, where they will turn left and end up somewhere near the tumour area.
This is where they will inject the 8-11 different chemotherapy drugs being used.
The dosage is very low, as the drugs are released in the affected area.
This time around a few things are different.
A more potent drug against the evil H3K27M mutation that Emma has have been put in, and last time, she received something that should have triggered her immune system to react better.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends. Once more.
We will never stop fighting for Emma. Not as long as we still have money to pay for her very expensive treatments.
Unfortunately, the high medical costs are not covered by insurance or the Swedish government, and we need to pay for everything ourselves.
We couldn’t have done this without you.
Please help us raise more money so we can afford to keep fighting.
Together we might be able to save her life.
