We are so grateful the first week of chemo is behind Jayme. What a tough start. Yesterday we spent the afternoon at our new home away from home where he received fluids and three IV anti-nausea medications. That helped immensely. Today he is tired and fatigued, but is eating! The nausea remains, but is much less and more manageable. He continues to get radiation daily and will meet with the radiologist tomorrow for a weekly meeting. I am trying to get back to some sort of regular work schedule. Fat chance. But I'm making progress.
I spent some time with my mom this afternoon. She is bedbound and weakening daily, but inquires about all the grandkids and, of course, Jayme. Hospice is wonderful and has been such a comfort to both my parents. She is not experiencing much pain and tells me she is feeling "peaceful". My dad is her strength and I am in total awe as I witness his caregiving skills. He inspires all of us. Please add my mom and dad to your prayers.
