Chemo: Round 2
Well that was very encouraging! The doc was very happy about how much the swelling had gone down in Jake's leg already. I was able to get more questions answered and we were done within 1/2 hour! Jake found a shoe that he could fit on his foot (though he doesn't wear the matching shoe on the other foot). They're both black, so I guess that's close enough (No, he didn't learn how to dress from me...well, he did, but he didn't listen too good! lol). I told the doc that the chemo turned his hair black (and his brother's, and his friend's). She said that was the first time she saw that side effect. Next chemo-next Tuesday. I think we will be doing the radiation planning that day also.
Round 4 of chemo (Aug. 3) is the one that is going to make me nervous. Second overnight stay. Probably a higher dose of chemo. Radiation starting. Nevertheless...so far so good!
Addendum: Blood counts waaaay down, so this isn't so good. :(
