Chemo Finally Kicks In





Well, I skipped a day of blogging because there really wasn't too much to say. But it is looking like Day -3 isn't much different from Day -4. Kenyon is exhausted. He sleeps most of the time I am here although he does wake up periodically and we exchange a few words. He is on Day 5 of chemo. Tomorrow is the last day of chemotherapy!! The nausea is making him miserable but they do give him lots of good drugs and then he seems to perk up or fall asleep.

I brought the kids in for a very quick Sunday morning visit. We were all clean and only stayed about 10 minutes. Kenyon put on a good face and the kids were happy to see him. Of course, it reminded them of how much we wish he could come home. Gavin can't understand why it takes so long to get better. It is complicated for me and a little 4 year old brain.

You can see that the kids were very interested in the machines and tubing and how this whole process works. Kenyon was patient enough to talk them through it.

I have been happy to learn of some readers out there that I didn't know we had. Thank you for all your interest and support. We appreciate it so much.

I am so happy that the kids got to visit. I didn't think they let kids in. What a great thing for them to see Dad after almost a week. Kenyon looks happy to see them. Sorry about the updated info about him not feeling good now. Our thoughts and prayers are with you daily.

thanks again for the updates. The kids look so adorable. I can't imagine how awful it must be for Kenyon right now. But one more day of chemo! that's great.
