Chemo round 3 Day 17

This is Teresa tonight. Doc is still feeling very poorly. His temperature has been up and down today. He did feel up to one walk today, but no more. He was able to sleep some today, but his throat and mouth is still really sore. For the first time last night his mouth hurt enough inside that he had to take pain medicine. He hadn't had to take any before this, but he said it felt like someone had set his mouth on fire. It didn't get this bad even the first time when he was really sick. His counts went lower again today so I know he is disappointed with that. He thought he had already reached the bottom and they were starting to come back up. I guess the Lord wasn't ready for him to be leaving this part of the vacation so soon.

He gave me a bit of a scare tonight when he started choking. He was only eating jell-o, but he starting choking and couldn't catch his breath. I had to call the nurse in and we ended up with a room full like the time he passed out. I guess it is much better to have too much response then not enough. Please keep him in your prayers. We are praying for a better day tomorrow.
