Rain and More Rain
Today we went to the Cancer Center for Sheila's neupergen shot and antibiotics and her lab work. Her counts are still low but slowly coming back up. That new round of chemo was some potent stuff! She feels good now though since she got 2 units of blood and 2 units of platelets this week. Tomorrow its back for more neupergen and antibiotics then Friday we see the doctor and get her blood work again to see what the counts are. Hoping to start the "last" round of chemo around the 26th so that she can recoup for a trip to Newport for Thanksgiving. Will still have to wait and see. Mike and Greg got some bad news today. He has been feeling worse and his legs and feet have swelled up very badly. They did cat scans on him today and the cancer is spreading to his liver and lymph glands. They are going to stop all chemo for now and let him get his low blood counts back up for the next few weeks, go home to Kansas for Thanksgiving, then when they get back start a completely different kind of chemo. They are having a really rough time of it right now. It has rained hard all day here and a cold front comes in tonight so we have just relaxed around the house.
