Glad it's going good so far, it bodes well for future chemos I'm hoping.

Joy,
Way to go for both of you. What is his chemo again? Dick began chemo again today. He is resting on the couch.
Thinking of you and your husband.

Aloha,
Kathleen

Just keep your eyes on the prize. Before you know it your DH will be done with chemo. Try to make sure he gets all the rest he needs and to stay hydrated I found my hardest days were after the pump came off.:)Melissa

Thanks for the tip. I think I drive him crazy because I watch him so closely. But I will make sure he drinks, thank you.
