Samantha was discharged last night from CHOP

Samantha was discharged last night from CHOP. She will be going to the clinic with her Grandpa Seip two times a week and getting her meds at home. Samantha is at her dad's this week with her brother and will be back home to my house next Sunday. She is doing well and is eating well!!!! We are glad she did not have to be in the hospital for any longer period of time because now she can sleep in her bed and be a little more comfortable without nurses stopping in constantly. If you need to reach me, I can be reached at 267-918-8895-cell.We have a long road ahead of us but we take day by day and following her regimen of meds is what we have to do until she is cured of this illness. She will probably be back in school in a few weeks but for now she will be at Brandon's or my house!!! until next time-April:)

Samantha Tomascik's Up-date

October 05, 2007 at 08:50 AM EDT
Good Morning!!!Samantha may be released from CHOP today depending on her calcium levels but we won't know more until later this afternoon. The good news if I didn't tell you in the last update is the bone marrow aspiration results came back with GREAT results. The vast majority of leukemia cells are gone so that is GREAT NEWS!!!!!!! She will be going to outpatient treatment here three days a week with her grandfather, and then resume her meds at home. She is in good spirits and is eating very good these days. We are very happy with the results considering this has been a tremendous chaotic two weeks. She will be at her dad's the first week coming home and then will come home with me. We are planning to steam clean our rugs and organize the house a little better for her arrival back home. until next time, Love April:)))))
