To answer your question, yes they will be putting in a central line which will remain there for about 6 months.
She's having a good day today, she's up and about doing laps of the ward in the toy cars and practically running along pushing her drip thingy. They've started her on chemo and steroids which has brought back her appetite, thankfully. She's a bit skinny so I'm hoping she can put a bit of weight on so that she has a buffer for times when she gets sick with treatment.
A social worker talked to me on Friday before the diagnosis and she said she would be back on Monday once we had a clearer idea of what's going on. The path we go down with the social worker is dependent on the diagnosis.
Looks like I may possibly be taking the next 6 months off work. In fairness to my boss and for the wellbeing of DD it's probably the only option. We don't want to risk sending her to daycare on and off.
Thanks again for all the well wishes xx
