Week of Sleep

by Michael

What's the update? Lots of sleeping has been going on around here.

I took Wednesday to Friday off to be with Kate, and promptly joined her in slumbering through most of Wednesday. I hadn't realized I was so tired.

Today, the kids have gone with their father, and will be coming back dinner time Sunday. So we have two more quiet days here to continue recovery.

The triple-whammy of side-effects (fatigue, nausea, headaches) have all been present, but the latter two have been pretty well moderated by medications. Kate's appetite has been consistent, but not normal. Small snacks, relatively frequently. Lots of fruits and veggies and fibrous cereals. Some of you will see where this is going.

The fatigue is omnipresent. It has been a week of sleep (and she is sleeping now as I type this). Kate and Buzi are competing for the title of Champion Snoozer.

That's all of the news from here. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

(Kate's back at PMH next Tuesday for Part 2 of Round 3 of chemo.)
