third day after treatment

I had a few good hours yesterday—enough to teach a class and teen Bible study, but nausea is back with a vengeance today. Woke up feeling sick, and have been pretty weak with not much of an appetite most of the day. On the richter scale it registers somewhere between “no fun” and “not unbearable.” I’m trying to eat just bland stuff—fruit, soup, etc. This seems to be working ok digestively, but I don’t have much energy.

The pharmacists keep changing the medication dosages on the anti nausea medication. The bathroom counter looks like a pharmacy! 🙂  God has given me a good wife who is taking good care of me. I’m praying I’ll pull out of this tonight and tomorrow.
The doctor’s appointment in Hollywood yesterday went well. It was a “second opinion”—essentially to see if another oncologist completely agreed with everything that’s been done up to this point. There is no new news to report. Thanks for the prayers and encouragement! We’re doing well.
