My husband John, as most of you know, finished his chemo treatments on 9/25 and his radiation treatments on 9/28. Fatigue set in on 9/25. It is so bad that, for example, today he slept from 9PM last night to 10:40 this morning. I called from work to see if he was okay and I asked him if he had anything to drink. After screaming at me on the phone and telling me to stop bothering him, I hung up. He then got up around 11:30, long enough to drink about 2 bottles of water, read the newspaper and sit in his recliner. He called to apologize and I said how important it was for him to drink and keep himself hydrated. He went back to bed at around 3:30PM, before I got home from work, and is still there as I type this at 6:45PM. He was infused with fluids at Fox Chase Cancer Center yesterday and is scheduled again for the same thing tomorrow. This makes it 5 times he has been infused since 9/25.
