Here we are at Primary Children's. 1:30 in the morning. Jake's chemo started at 8:00. He's got one last dose of Mesna to go at 2:00 and then it's just peeing until we go home.
Apparently we're not sleeping tonight. Jake's a big Survivor fan so I bought him the DVD of Pearl Islands for this admission. He's decided he's going to watch the entire season before we go home in the morning. We're halfway through episode 7 now and neither one of us is feeling the least bit sleepy.
The bad news: His neuropathy definitely worsened this week after the 3/4 dose of Vincristine last week. He even has a sign on his door saying Falls Risk. So he only got a half dose today. I don't know if I need to start worrying about that or not. Something to ask the doctors.
The good news: He gained another 2 pounds this last week. And he's had no nausea at all.
Off to watch the 7th episode tribal council.
One thing about Survivor--lots of things that make me say "Things could be worse. At least I'm not (sleeping with hermit crabs, wearing the same clothes for a month, drinking blended octopus and bleeding clams)."
