Day +6. Casey has upped his laps to 3 around the nurses station, so things are going well. He is having a real good day. He was able to eat half of his lunch today. He does have sores inside of his mouth, which is common, but they are not too bad. It is more his stomach that has held him back from being able to eat. Casey had some broken vessels in his eyes from throwing up all of the time, and they too seem to be getting smaller. The swelling in his face has gone down, and his hair is still growing. In the past it has taken a couple of weeks for his hair to fall out after chemo. He needs to shave and I forgot to bring in his electric shaver. His platelets are real low, (the platelets are what causes your blood to clot), so he is not allowed to use a razor. Casey got a small dose of methotrexate (which is a chemo drug), but after what he has already gotten, that's like you and me taking a baby aspirin. Today has been a great day. I hope you are having a great day too. Happy Valentine's Day.
