    [QUOTE=rainbow road;8121165]

    Love all the pics of the babies, sorry that River, Toby and Lucy are unwell! J what does it mean for your chemo when your little ones are unwell?

    [QUOTE]


    Thanks for asking. It is very difficult; I have to put them in childcare on the days I have chemotherapy, therefore Lucy has had an endless ****** of viral infections.

    I am most at risk 10-14 days post-chemotherapy, as that is when my white blood cells (neutrophils, lymphocytes, etc) are at their lowest. So, my immune system is at its weakest at that time, and I have minimal ability to fight infection. If I do have an infection, and my temperature reaches 38 or above, it is called "febrile neutropaenia", and it is a medical emergency, as it can be fatal within hours.

    So...when the kids are sick, especially Lucy (as she tends to slobber on me more!!), I have to be REALLY careful. We have alcohol-based handrub in several rooms at home, and I use it diligently when the kids are sick.

    I do have a viral illness at the moment, courtesy of Lucy and childcare, but my fever has been 37.6 and below. But I am 18 days post-chemotherapy, so my white blood cells will have partly recovered by now.

    The irony is...I wrote a research paper in about 2004 on febrile neutropaenia, and ED-based treatment protocol. Never thought I'd be on the other end of it!!

    BTW; LilSmurfy, how is Sienna's potty-training going?

    Gosh J, that would be so hard with germ transmitters like toddlers! It is a bit of a cruel irony that you wrote a paper on that- I suppose at least you are well versed now!

    Next beta is tomorrow and so we are hoping it is well and truly in the 1000s. 1000 itself is still in range but 1400+ would keep us feeling happy!

    That must be horrible J. Childcare is so germy. Hopefully you can keep your temp under control and don't catch too many germs.

    I've been slack with the potty training. First day I was taking Sienna's nappy on and off constantly. I need to talk to childcare about how they handle potty training. Given she's there 5 days a week, it's going to fall on them a lot

    Sorry once again I am so far behind, I really hate this current version of the bubhub app, used to be so much easier. Will read up on what's going on but quick question, is there a way to export a thread? I want to print out my pregnancy bubhub diary? XxImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1425961720.559347.jpg

    That is fantastic!! I think the probability that this IUI has worked is pretty darn high! How does M feel? You must be both so excited.

    So, next week's bhCG will be in the ten-thousands, and it will all be good

    I think so j! A little slow starter but obviously worked out what to do in there! So pleased.

    She is thrilled although she had no doubts it wouldn't work out unlike me!
