1/25

Robert seems to be doing better today, however everyone is exhausted from last night.  We have had permission to give him Tylenol up through midnight tonight.  At that point we have to stop and see if his fever returns.  If it does we will have to return to the hospital.  The early results of last nights cultures are promising, hopefully there are no serious infections.

After a day of procedures and chemo yesterday in clinic, we started his additional home treatments today.  I give him an additional daily injection for 3 days after each clinic, and a new oral therapy before bed.  The pill is nasty and surely straight poison.  After his initial dose last night he was sick within 30 minutes.  We are trying to give it on an empty stomach before bed, to limit the effects.

All is quiet now, hopefully it will stay that way for a restful night.
