    it's happening....

    His hair is falling out. They had told us that should not happen with the type chemo he is on, but apparently they were wrong. I've been instructed to start making him hats, so I'll be off to look for baby fleece tomorrow. I remember that is what his mom liked on her skin.

    He started the second round last Friday and is not handling it well. He has been very, very tired and his stomach has been upset since treatment. So far, he is down about twenty pounds.

    The second treatment in this round is Friday again.
    pat.

    No rain....no rainbows!

        If his anti-nausea drugs aren't helping him, see if his docs will prescribe him medical marijuana. It helps a lot with the nausea.

        Before you speak,
        T - is it TRUE?
        H - is it HELPFUL?
        I - is it INSPIRING?
        N - is it NECESSARY?
        K - is it KIND?

              Duh! I forgot they were legal there too. I remember Colorado is because its next door. It will help with his appetite if he loses too much weight.

                His appetite is fine. We think it's because he has cut back on his coke drinking....it does not taste good. Neither does ketchup, poor guy.

                  Pat your both in my prayers.I remember when my mother's hair started to fall out. I was afraid to wash it because I was going to have my hands covered with her hair.

                      Remember to breathe....it is hard to see someone you love go through this. I know my family suffered more seeing what I went though than I did in many ways. It seems it does get worse before it gets better. Strange how sick you need to feel while being "cured." Holding virtual hands with you doing this time.

                            Oh, I feel for him! I know my meds have made some of my favorite foods taste nasty now. I really MISS eating oranges!
