Ironically it seems the cancer center is where Cathy feels her best lately. Her potassium levels were low this morning, so she didn’t get one of the chemo drugs and had a better time of it overall. Or it just might be that the stronger anti-nausea meds she gets there work better.
The last month has been non-stop nausea for Cathy which has meant hardly any eating and lots of work to get the minimum amount of drinking. In fact, she has had fluids injected by IV on several days to keep her hydrated.
This morning the nurse told us that this is no way to live and that they would work to improve Cathy’s situation. So Cathy’s treatment protocol will change and hopefully give her some relief from feeling so badly.
This morning the nurse also explained that what we thought would be the end of chemo treatments after #4 would really only be a short break while they do some scans and determine if they’re working. If they’re working, they will likely resume to make a total of 6 to 8.
