Well, just a quick update to those of you who are wondering. Treatment five was merciful until yesterday. I actually had a pretty good week—including getting to attend the teen retreat and moderately participate. When I got back into town yesterday, I wasn’t feeling too good but decided to try to work for a couple of hours. Things went down hill fast when I got home at about 4pm. It was suddenly like somebody pressed “activate” on the chemo controls.
Chemo is a strange experience—and add to that the neupogen side effects, and it just renders you incapacitated. For the last 24 hours I’ve just been in bed enduring the ride. I hated missing church today. I think this is about the worst I’ve been hit so far. People have told me that one treatment to the next, you never really know what to expect. That’s proven true today.
No complaints. At least cancer is dying and I know God is taking me through this! And I’m nearly half way through chemo! May will be here before we know it!
I’m thankful for a patient wife who makes sure I have what I need—from meds to liquids to quiet. Thanks for your prayers. Hopefully I’ll be pulling out over night and do better tomorrow.
