Update on Day -3

In the couple hours since I have posted, I can say that he really did put on a good face for the kids this morning. Good thing we got that visit in when we did. He got his 5th day of chemo around noon and it has hit him bad. He has so much medicine going in him it is crazy. They are trying everything they can to make him comfortable but he HATES this. I haven't really talked to him much today because he is either so sick or asleep. Besides nausea he has jaw pain - a side effect from today's chemo -cytoxin. I am not sure he loves all these details being out on the web but I know many of you want to know what this is really like.

Dear Annie, you did a wonderful job today. The spirit was so strong. I wish I had the right words to say right now but they fail me so just know how much I am thinking of you through this incredibly difficult time.

I'm glad he could have a few happy minutes with the kids before this. I was so touched by your quote by Elder Holland. You can do it!

I'm so sad that I missed your lesson. The whole time that I wasn't feeling good yesterday, all I could think of was Kenyon. I am such a wimp!

SOOO glad that the kids were able to see him!!

I'm impressed that you found the energy to prepare and then teach a lesson in the middle of what must be an emotionally-draining experience. You are so strong! I love that you're sharing what it's really like, too; I definitely wouldn't have had a clue otherwise.
