Thursday update...

Hi Everyone!
Chris is doing better. Not great. But much better. The nausea is finally under control with the medication that she has been taken. This medicine is more powerful than the stuff she was taking during her regular chemo treatments. The pain where her gall bladder is has been kept in check by taking her pain meds regularly. She sometimes tends to toughen it out and I finally convinced her to start taking the maximum dosage for a few days so the that pain goes away and is not just tolerable. It's really helped.

She got up this morning and took a shower and came downstairs to have breakfast. She was up for a couple of hours and even sat down and got through some of her emails from work. COMSTAR provides her with a computer and connection to their system for just this reason. The cleaning company came by today to clean the house and once again did a wonderful job. That has just been a godsend for us and especially today.

Chris is resting a lot which is great. I think she gets better faster at home. It is much quieter than the hospital and very relaxing. Especially during the day.

The boys are well and playing lacrosse. Practice is 2 days a week for Michael and 2 for Tyler. Of course they are on opposite days!!! We carpool which makes it tolerable.

Yesterday, Chris's mom left a dish for us that all I had to do was pop in the over. Great timing. They've been wonderful in everything they've done for us. They make sure the boys get to where they need to be and just having them here for them takes any and all worries away.

On a lighter note, someone has started a vicious rumor about me and our dog Chloe. Seems that people think that I let Chloe sleep in our bed on Monday night when Chris was in the hospital. That could not be further from the truth. Truth is that Ramsey let the dog stay in the bed, not me. I was out like a light as soon as my head hit the pillow and the cat was left in charge. Stupid cat!
