When Jake is feeling better = Hungry!

Sunday May 6, 2012 - Today Jake is doing a little better.  Yesterday was quite a struggle.  The nurses had a hard time getting his nausea under control and as a result he threw up a few times.  Then to top it off he got a fever,  they did some cultures but are not sure what it is related to unless it is infection in the wound.  By 7 or so that evening after adding two different nausea medications, a lot of sleeping and a antibiotic he was feeling a little better.  First clue to me was that he was hungry. ;)   This morning he is a little nauseated but the mouth sores are starting again.  I was able to attend Sacrament meeting and the Elders brought Jake the Sacrament to his room.  Hopefully his counts will drop enough and he can come home tomorrow.  As long as everything goes good between now and Thursday we will come back on Thursday to start the 2nd cycle of Chemo with Doxorubison and Cysplatin.
