My bro is holding up- kinda -....he added some writing to his expressions page, which I thought I'd bring to the discussion table.....
"THis may come across as trivial to some here but here it goes. This has been a rough week my body didn't react well to the second round of chemo and rad. Ended up in ER Tues morning b/c my eyes were all dried and scratchey. Added to the chemo rad and just general not feelin good at all. I had to make a very tough decision and put down my buddy of 10 years. He was having trouble walking and I was worried he was going to fall and hurt himself you know how those rambunctious 18 year old cats can get.
Bill starts his next round on Sunday. He will be in for a week then going back home. Thankfully our dad will be going out to visit him, arriving over Memorial Day weekend and staying fot the week. Someone to spend all the lonely hours of pain and feeling like sh*t with. At the very least someone to talk to and distract him for a while. :) I am VERY relieved to have him going out there!! As I am sure my bro is too.
I did end up getting in touch with the resident for radiation and my bro went in the following day to see if he needed a new mask. Seems they are just going to raise it a little and see how that works out.
I just want to thank everyone again for being part of this forum. You have all given me a lot of information directly and indirectly. Either way, it all works! I hope that I can provide some comfort or information for someone else down the line.....but for now I am content to take in as much information as I can. A BIG "THANK YOU"!!. :)
That's it for now....God Bless -Jess
