When he was on chemo last go-round, it was the same med, but the dosing schedule was different since he had to do it for a full year. They spread them out, so his side effects weren't as bad.
This time it's full force, and full force effects.
A full week of extreme nausea, throwing up, fatigue, and generally feeling like he'd been hit by a train. :(
He's feeling much better these last couple of days. Way less nausea (that will go away once the chemicals all get out of his system, and then he'll get to start all over) and less fatigue, although mid-day naps are common for him for the last couple of years.
A 3 week break, then another round.....and then a 17 hour road trip to go watch the Soldier Girl graduate from Basic Training. I'll admit, I'm more than a little worried about that.
But we'll roll with the punches, 'cause that's how we do.
Headed for our 2nd Krav Maga class tonight. I haven't formed a definite opinion yet, so I'm going to hold off on posting about it. But I will leave you with this......
|Right forearm...there are still lumps under those bruises, and our first class was a week ago. |
After tonight, those are going to look way worse.
