2nd round of chemo...



Mathew is doing great after his 2nd round of chemo... (3rd session)
He came home and slept all afternoon and woke up energized enough to play Sequence.. (I won)...Like he said.. "take advantage of a man while he's down"..lol
His pump is attached and feeding him his cocktail of Goodies cum Baddies!!
The Dr gave him Ativan ( I think) and this will help him sleep and help with the nausea also along with the Zofran.
Even though he had a fever on Thursday, his bloodwork came back ok so he could go through with the chemo today instead of it being delayed... YIPPEEEEE

Glad you were able to go through with the chemo. I was worried the fever would delay things.

We should play some games one of these days since you're both hanging out at the house so much now. I would be happy win against Mathew too. We have a ton of fun games that we can bring to spice up your life. Maybe next week when my company leaves?? And we like Sequence too.

Hey it's Susan's husband, Justin. Just wanted to say, be careful with that Ativan. I don't know how it's working for Mathew, but it made Susan a little nutty:) But at least she slept! Hope the chemo treats you well.

Hi Justin
Luckily it didn't seem to have any effect on him besides drowsiness... Let's hope he doesn't get any "nuttier" than he is while taking it.. lol
