Still praying for you both.
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.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.
