Not A Good Weekend
We’re glad this weekend is almost over. Gorman has been somewhat nauseated and so tired and sleepy for the past couple of days. We kinda expected this right here at the end of the six weeks of treatment. He has Phenergan to take at night for nausea but it causes drowsiness, not what we need. Tomorrow I’m calling the doctor to ask for Zofran as I’ve been told it can be taken during the day and won’t put you to sleep. Wish I had thought to do that before now. He took his last chemo pills Friday night, will get his last radiation treatment tomorrow and that’s it. Woo hoo!
At least that’s it for this phase. Then we go back to the oncologist on April 10 and he will start Gorman on “maintenance”, which means that five days out of each month, he will take very strong doses of chemo, twice or more than what he’s been taking. That should kick those cancer cells out of the ball park! On April 23, he will have an MRI and that will tell us his exact situation and who knows what happens after that. We’re not dealing with that yet; we’re just walking this road today.
And we’re going to New Orleans on Tuesday for several days to celebrate making it through six weeks of treatment and getting two weeks off. We think that calls for celebration.
