At Chemo appt. round 1 second cycle

Hello all. I've discovered the joys of the wireless internet here at DFCI. We just saw Dr. A after blood drawing and we're waiting for her infusion to begin.

I have some positive news for you: she has maintained her weight (96lbs). The doctor is very pleased! He advised that we decrease some of her nausea medication because it causes her right leg to shake. It happened at the appointment and he said it's a common side-effect of anti-emetic medications.

He did a physical exam today and it was good, her stomach feels softer and not distended (it was slightly hard when she felt very sick).

Her labs are great. CBCs and all that.

What I'd like to do this week is increase her portions and get her some more snacky foods (hummus and carrots yummy).

He said there are no restrictions on what she's allowed to eat. She just needs to keep eating milder less spicy foods.

I can't say enough how nice everyone is here.
