round 4

Hi all. Dad has now finished round 4 of the chemo. He's been feeling strange so they checked his blood pressure, which was a bit low and decided to skip the metawhatever that was meant to stimulate his appetite but which had wiped out what little appetite he had. Now we wait and see for the next week. It would be good if he didn't get diahorrea, an elevated temp and become dehydrated. I guess we're more ready to treat the symptoms if they happen than we were the first round. Only one more round to go and that's not for three weeks. Don't think we'll manage Adelaide this school holidays since that final round is the last week of term and I don't want to travel if Dad is feeling unwell. We'll see how he goes. He's started grumbling about my driving again so I think he'll be back behind the wheel by next week. If only he'd start eating more. He still has at least two cans of 2cal a day to keep up his nutrition.
Dayna looking forward to hearing about your holiday in France.
Glenn and D, thank you for the photos you left on our computer. We had a voucher for 25 prints in May and we haven't taken any since the last batch of developing. I used some of yours and some of Dayna's. I'll pick them up when I get to town next.
Thinking of you all.

  1. I think we're all glad that there is only one more round (although Dad is probably the happiest about that). It's appropriate that it's a "round" -- sounds like being in a boxing ring with a sadistic Mohammad Ali!!

    RE: Photos -- both Dayna and I (and Damien?) have Flickr Pro accounts, so I tend to put full resolution photos on there (i.e. you can download and print 'em if you see any you like). Dayna's zoo photos are so cute! Especially the giraffe bending down to eat some grass, legs splayed.
