Danny is unable to tell you about his day yesterday because... he slept through most of it.
His nausea continued into the morning. His treatment was at 11:30. When we arrived he became pretty sick. It is tough on the other patients in the waiting room when they hear someone going through a familiar territory. When we entered the chemo room I think it was obvious to the nurses he was not feeling too well. I think the green color & wet cloths gave it away. They were able to give him an additional medication to help with the nausea. This one knocked him out. He slept through the entire 3 1/2 hour treatment. He slept on the ride home and the entire evening as well.
The doctor prescribed a new medication for him to have at home for the nausea and one for the hiccups. That was a surprise... I didn't know they made a med for hiccups. He fell asleep in the recliner in the living room. He slept through Daniel, Summer, and Raegan (my niece) running through the house, fighting, playing the trumpet, playing wii, the dog barking, & company coming in and out. He did not move!
Danny woke about 8:30 pm. He was able to eat some watermelon but then he headed back to the recliner (his temporary bed). About 12:00 am he woke with the hiccups so he took his medicine and tried to go back to sleep. He then woke about 2:00 am feeling nauseated. He spent the rest of the night fighting a sick stomach and vomiting.
This morning it seems the medication has started to work again because he is sound asleep. He is in another world. He didn't even budge when Summer was practicing her trumpet this morning in the same room. I am thankful he is resting now and hope we learn how to time the medicine so he does not have to be so sick.
Again, I want to thank everyone for your prayers, calls, emails, blog posts, & cards. The outpouring of love & support has meant so much. It really helps lift Danny's spirits.
We know this is going to be a long tough road... we are going to make it! God is good! He is faithful!
