Still, the hair loss makes it all the more real. Four more days of six hour treatments...
Its just hair, it'll grow back!
First day of round two chemo went well. He's looking good, except for the hair loss. He trimmed it in anticipation, but its still pretty obvious. Oh well,

Last treatment for this round tomorrow, white blood booster shot on thurs, then off for 3 weeks!
11:25 - all done! He snoozed the whole time. Looks good, feels good!
Only one chem today and tomorrow, should be...relatively...quick.
He reported no nausea at all last nite! A little less anxiety today. Arrived at 9:30, took vitals, meds, and started drip at 10:25am.

2:00 - finished and left the clinic! He is feeling a lot better than we expected, may be cuz they dripped anti-naseau, too.
12:35 - second of the two meds started. Its 35 mins late, go figure... And, its going to take an hour, instead of the half hr they mentioned earlier today...
(Msgs are best read from bottom up)
11:05 - drip begins...

Anti-anxiety med (and lack of sleep) has him knocked out. Good to see him relaxed! :)

Hes not really as bad as it sounds. Hopefully, subsequent treatments will get better!
His anxiety is going thru the roof! Pissing him off too. Everything I try to calm him down only makes him agitated...
10:25 - They still haven't started the drip yet, guess should be expected, nothing ever goes quickly. Another two hours for that...
Appt is at 9:15, arrived with 3 mins to spare...not that we needed them...
Today is first day of his treatment...cold, freezing fog, a portent of things to come?

Anyway, he should be home later tonite.
Surgery went well! A little longer than expected, tough tissue. Dr used to installing these on the ederly, not young guys!
