guest post: hospital day 2 of prep chemo

hey everyone. Johanna here.
I left last night and Steve was in good spirits though a little puffy faced (this is from the steroids and fluid retention). This morning I arrived and he had tales of an awful night of nausea and vomiting. Sounds like he didn't get much sleep. I think after some rest and some food he may be up and about once again. We will be working with the docs today to get his symptoms under control so he can keep his appetite.

awww poor thing... tell him to get well soon... listen to lots of happy music... at least he has his past experience to draw on what is to come...

Oh dear... not fun and hopefully will pass quickly. I'm so happy you're liking your new digs. It's got to feel great getting to wear "healthy people" clothes ;) Much love and healing coming your way!

I hope that day two isn't quite as bad. Even though I know this is going to be horribly miserable, keep in mind how many people are thinking of you, and hoping and praying for your strength as you go through this.

In completely related news, Southwest Airlines has a 3 day fare-sale: 50% off all flights to/from Seattle 2/3 - 5/30. Anyone who wants to get tickets to come visit should look into this. (GEORGE. HINT HINT).
