And another weekend awaits
Tomorrow morning we've got another round of chemo coming. Steven will have a dose of Cisplatin and Doxorubicin over the course of 48 hours. These are the same ones he had the very first time he had chemo--the ones that make him very nauseated and eventually bring his counts down really low. This time he says he doesn't want to take any of the drugs that make him sleepy--he wants to play the iPad. We'll see. The nurses and doctors really try hard to control the nausea. They worry about anticipatory nausea. One nurse told me about a patient who saw his nurse at the grocery store and threw up in the aisle. I don't know about Steven, but I guarentee that I've got anticipatory nausea tonight.
