Thank you. She went to the GI Dr today and got a referral to a pain management specialist, so hopefully that'll make things better for her. Tomorrow's chemo day, so I'm just trying to enjoy the last few moments of peace for the week right now.

Chemo today. She's really nauseous tonight, but not too bad off. Her tongue didn't seem to swell this time, and she was walking fairly well when I brought her home.

We discussed the skyrocketing tumor marker with the oncologist. Honestly, I don't think he really knows what to do right now, other than keep giving her the same regimen for a while to buy time. I don't want to try to have a discussion with her right now, with her feeling so crappy, but once she starts to feel better, I'm planning to push hard for us to get a second opinion. I hear that MD Anderson will give a case review based solely on her medical records, without the need for us to fly to Houston.

I went yesterday and got the J&J vaccine. I really didn't want to take it until she was able to, but I wasn't left with much choice. I couldn't sleep last night from the pain in my arm, then woke up this morning with horrible chills. They finally went away around lunch and I'm stuck with a splitting headache.

Today has just been a rough day around this house. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow and can't do a better job of taking care of her.

Getting the vaccine adds a headache. Now I have to worry that I'll catch this crap and not realize it before I give it to my wife because I don't have symptoms. Thanks though.

Man. I just want to reach through this computer screen and give big ol' hugs to both of you. Sounds like you could use 'em.

Whiskey, it's becoming increasingly easy and more affordable to buy at-home test kits for COVID-19. If you're concerned about you possibly being a carrier, go get a multi-pack of 'em. The peace of mind for you might be beneficial.

She went in today and got a blood transfusion because her platelets were low yesterday. It seems to have made a real difference in how she feels. At this point, I'm wondering if I can just give her a pint every few weeks. Hell, she takes half of everything else I have. Either way, I'm happy to have her feeling good, even if it's only for a short time.

Well, the fun never ends. She developed a sore throat last Friday, so no chemo last week. We went and got tested for Covid on Wednesday and just got the results back. She was positive, but I was negative. However, I woke up this morning with a fever, aches, and a sore throat, so apparently I picked it up from her at some point over the last week.

This appears to be the omicron variant, based on the symptoms, so that's good. Everything I've read says that it stays in the upper respiratory area and doesn't go for the lungs. She's already feeling better, so hopefully she's on her way out and I'm just behind a bit.

Hey, maybe she can take care of me for a bit.

Woke up this morning and my fever is gone. Throat is still a little sore, but not as bad as yesterday. My hips and back are killing me from laying in bed all day yesterday. I have no idea how my wife does it for days on end. Thanks for the prayers and well wishes.

So my wife's cancer marker (CA19-9) shot up like a rocket about two months ago, from 65 to 171. After a few rounds of chemo, it was starting to trend down dropping to 147 two weeks ago. She got Covid, had a low WBC count, and missed the last round. We got her number from yesterday and it's up to 216. 😱

She's got a CT scheduled for 16 February, and I've gotta say that I'm terrified of what the results are going to be. Pray for us, please. 🙏💜
