Zofran Alarm

The last round of Temozolomide, I gave KK an 8mg dose of Zofran (anti-nausea medicine) at bedtime with the chemo and a 4 mg dose 8 hours later (usually around 4am). This seemed to work well, so we decided that we would replicate it this round. Last night, I placed the 4am dose of Zofran in a medicine cup and turned on my Zofran alarm (yes, there is an alarm labeled Zofran on my phone) before I went to bed. Unfortunately, I slept through the 4am alarm. When KK woke up to go to the bathroom at 6:30, I bolted upright realizing I slept through the Zofran alarm. I asked her how her tummy was and she said it didn't feel so good. I gave her the Zofran and she immediately asked for a bucket and threw up. Now I know for sure that KK needs the second dose of Zofran 8 hours after the first.

Pray for KK as her body adjusts to the higher dose of Temozolomide and pray that I don't sleep through any more alarms this week.
