Steven finished his infusion of methotrexate a few hours ago. Once again, he isn't feeling nauseated. He has a couple of little mouth sores, but they don't look too bad. He acts like they are killing him, though. He will likely get a few more with this round, but the doctors are really encouraged that they are so minimal. The doc this morning told met that it is really good for Steven that these side effects are mild--these side effects aren't necessary for the chemo to kill cancer. Now the low blood counts are a different story. But the less we have to deal with mouth sores and nausea, the more likely it will be that we stay on schedule. I'm feeling so grateful right now.
