Hi all,

Al is on this antibiotic called Avelox, it is one strong antibiotic. It is making him weak
and moody. He knows that he is supposed to be resting and drinking lots of fluids. He keeps arguing with me that He is going to stop this medication if its going to keep making him feel like this.

I'm so confused he never said these things when on chemo, I wonder how this antibiotic could make him feel worse then chemo? I know that his body is fighting the pneumonia and
that he feels like crap. I'm just afraid that he is going to give up. I know that this is a major set back. I just can't and let him give up. He has me so upset right now that
I can't even think straight.

Thanks for listening,

Keep your chin up!! He's going through a rough time right now, and I'm sure he's not meaning to take it out on you, but you're the one closest to him. I guess that's the way it goes, when I feel like crap it gets taken out on my husband I am sure. I hope he is starting to feel better, and we are always here to listen, so vent any time. Keep up a positive attitude with him and he'll come around. :0) My thoughts are with you!! Check in soon!
