Chemo Day 7

Today has been an OK day. I broke my fever last night, but it came back later today. I had lots of visitors and phone calls today. Very encouraging! I still do not have much of an appetite and have asked to see dietary to see about supplements.

I started my last day of chemo this afternoon about 4 PM. Hopefully, I will finish tomorrow afternoon and get to feeling better. I still just don't feel as good as I would like but I guess that is supposed to happen when you are taking 2 kinds of poisin (chemo) and lots of antibiotics. I hope I get better enough to resume walking and getting out and about.

I was able to play some Strat-o-matic baseball tonight. That helped my spirits. For those of you who do not know what that is, it is a baseball game I have played for over 40 years. I play it over the internet and was able to do so from the hospital tonight. I lost 2 out of 3 but the games were close and it was good to play again.

I have been getting more rest but I am beginning to get worried about my wife. She comes early and stays late. She is not getting enough rest and is wearing down. After my passing out episode, I think she is afriad to leave me herer alone for very long. It would not matter how many people are here, she still worries about me. It is great to have someone that cares that much but I do not want her to get worn down, either. I guess I am going to have to get better so she can rest easier!

Well now I have to start getting my rest so will write again tomorrow!
