Chemo ends today

My 5Fu pump ran until almost 2 pm today. Then we went out to the Virginia Cancer Institute for some neupagin to boost my white blood cells.

Because my nausea is has not abated much, they gave me some iv hydration and some more powerful antinausea medication.

Still feeling kind of bad. Can't eat. Hope to sleep it off.

If they gave you Zofran, that's good stuff. Really good stuff. Most likely your appetite will come back once the nausea fades. Extra fluids can help decrease the nausea, so I'm glad to hear they were prompt in giving you IV hydration. John says that if we ever meet Dr. Evers on the street, I have his okay to run up to him and give him a big kiss. And I've told John he has permission to do the same! :D And of course, if Fee's with us, she'll get in a couple as well.

I hope you feel better soon!

Jim and Judy, I know it has been hard but you are progressing well. I have always told my patients that it is amazing what a body can go through and come back to normal. In my 25 years of oncology nursing I have seen some amazing responses. You and the children are in my prayers every day. Positive thoughts... Mary Ann

I hope by this evening (Friday) you are feeling much better and have an appetite for foods healthy and decadent, 'cuz I hope you'll be tempted. They say that dark chocolate has anti-oxidant properties....

Everyone's been so poetic in their well-wishes lately that I'm a little intimidated. Just know that we're still thinking of you, feeling horrible that you have to go through this, and looking forward to the day when it's all behind you.
