The chest X-ray was clear and showed no fluid in his lungs. As a result of this side effect from the 2nd chemo medication resulting in deoxygenation, the doctors decided to give him hydrocortisone (steroid) to combat the reaction. The steroid worked well and the second dose was given once again at a slower rate to ensure there is no reaction. He did not hyperventilate this time and his body reacted just as the doctors had expected.
This 2nd chemo medication will continue to run its course for 3 hours, and Adam is now sound asleep. Once completely infused, Adam will have received his first chemotherapy dose. Please pray that there would be no further complications.
