My dear husband Bernie came home from hospital on the weekend after his third round of chemotherapy. It is such a strong regime of chemo that he needs to be in hospital for one week for each cycle. It is very taxing and exhausting for him, and it is quite incredible the amount of medicines that are pumped into his body in the hope of taming this awful disease. He has slept for most of the time he has been home this time, and we have been told that this is due to the cumulative effect of each cycle of chemo. He has not had to deal with nausea thank goodness as the drugs they give him for this work so well. His biggest problem is his mouth. His taste buds have been completely altered with the chemicals, and things he normally loves, he can't stand the taste of. Meals that are normally his favourites, I cook for him and he can't stand the flavour. Now it could be my cooking, but I am still blaming the chemo!!
He will be back into hospital the week after next for round four of chemo treatment. After round four the Specialist will do a full scan to see how the disease is being affected by the Chemo treatment. That is going to be a very anxious time. Thanks to everyone for your continued good wishes and prayers for us. You are all angels. xxxxx Christine. xxxxxx
