The Stacey Report

May 18: Still Queasy…

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on May 18, 2006

…and Stacey had the NERVE to refuse my offer of a big pot of beef stew. Can you believe that? Sheesh, some people! (Fortunately, Lyle and Michael had no such compunctions.)

All is still well, in general, and Stacey’s stomach is allowing her to have wonton soup (we don’t know why) and fruit. Could be worse, nutritionally! I also hear tell that there’s a batch of Auntie’s famous chicken soup on the way — if that doesn’t fix her up, nothing will.

Oh, and a correction — Neulasta is for white blood cells, not red blood cells. So the white blood cells take a hit from the chemo (thus the drop in the immune system, and Stacey’s further refusal to kiss my hacking, coughing, runny-nosed baby. Can you believe that? Sheesh, some people…)

    Hey Stacey and Deb:

    I’ve been lovin’ this. (But where’s the latest update?) I can’t believe we all live within 3 blocks of each other, yet this is how I need to keep up on the “news”! Glad to hear things are going so well, Stacey. Sorry to hear Eva is sick, Deb. (And Kip is pining for your pups — tell Chris a midday playdate would be awesome if he’s around during the week!)

    Hey Stacey,

    Will it help anything at all if I start eating lots of wonton soup in solidarity? Because that’s something that I can actually do to help, if need be. Please let me know if there’s something else I can eat/do….

    Wishing you all the very best from out here in CA.
