Dad Update 11-21-07

Dad is still on his first 24-hour chemo IV drip. So far, the medication he is taking is keeping the nausea at bay. We are thankful for that. Later today, he will have a 4-hour infusion of more chemotherapy so we will see how his body responds to that. He is still continuing the 24-hour chemo drips through the weekend. Doctors have him on the lasix pills to help reduce the amount of water retention in his body. So far, so good.

There was a power outage in Maywood last night. That means no ice in his water this morning. That's a bit disappointing for him. Normally, I'd say "Oh, well. It's just ice." With this situation, I feel a bit disappointed with him. There's not too much that he enjoys these days so when something small like that is unavailable I want it for him. They'll have it for him soon. The ice machine just needs to be cleaned out and restarted before he can have it.

Just little things to appreciate and be thankful for.

  1. Sometimes it is the little things that make a big difference. I'll pray he can get this small contribution to any bit of relief he can have right now.

    The love in your heart shines through when you are not just suffering with him through the big things, but the small things too.
