Treatment Free Day

Danny was looking forward to today since he was not having treatment.... but today has been one of his worst. He has been very nauseated and restless all day. He has tried to eat a little but that did not go so well. He has been drinking some and that was okay until this evening.

He has been very sick and is having trouble even keeping water on his stomach. He has been vomiting for a while. We called and spoke with the doctor on call and she has called in a couple of new medications to the 24 hour pharmacy. He has just taken them and should be much better within 30 - 45 minutes. Pray he is.... if not we have been instructed to go to the ER for fluids and meds.

This morning started out very good. He seemed to be feeling a little better and was getting around really good. He was more talkative and seemed more relaxed. About lunchtime is when things started to turn and he was needing to take his nausea medication more often.

We had a good friend come visit and bring some homemade vegetable soup.... we loved it but Danny couldnt eat any. Shortly after they left he was really feeling pretty bad. He has not rested all day. We hope the medication works so that we do not have to go spend time in the hospital. Danny does not want to go & his fear of catching infections is high so the longer we can stay at home the better.

Please pray with us that the Lord will take away the nausea and will give Danny rest!

Thanks so much - Regina
