Sick

This new chemo regimen is hitting Mad pretty hard. She's been throwing up a lot, even on the anti-nausea meds. And, to top it off she's got a cold. It's just so frustrating; chemotherapy is bad enough, she doesn't need to be more sick and stuffed up on top of that. I hope the cold goes away quickly, but her white cells are probably already dropping, so it may hang on for awhile.

They retested her urine for red blood cells today and they found that she is in the normal range so they'll probably check again this week, but I think she's okay.

I am sorry to hear that she is sick and throwing up on top of that. Please let us know if there is anything we can do at all this week. I can come sit with you on Thus if you want company.

I'm so sorry that Madeleine is feeling so sick right now. Hopefully this all passes quickly. I will be around all week if you need anything. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Hang in there. Give that sweet baby a big hug and a kiss from us.

if you type cancer and cold into Google it comes up with various articles in Science Daily expounding on the virtues of the common cold, if only they could find a way to harness the germy-germ and train it on cancer cells instead of our poor nasal passages...

... that idea is meant to brighten your day. big hugs to everyone.
