The Stacey Report

June 14, 2006: Chemo Treatment #3

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on June 14, 2006

Treatment #3 went off uneventfully, and although Stacey can feel exactly when it’s time to take the next dose of each anti-nausea drug, she says that she feels strangely well. This may shift around over the next few days, but for the time being the drugs are not taking too much of a toll. As Dr. Browne predicted, Stacey’s weight has stabilized as she has discovered that snacking every few hours helps to keep the nausea at bay.

The random food aversions persist, but Stacey is able to eat full meals of whatever does not make her want to puke, a fairly reasonable arrangement for the time being. I did not get a report on the check-in with Dr. Browne, but if Stacey’s mood is anything to go by, I have to assume that the news continues to be good.

The search for the perfect hat continues tomorrow with a visit to the new fancy-schmantzy knitting shop in town, looking for a light cotton yarn that will work with Janet Szabo’s famous Chemo Toque pattern. Sigh — it’s a sacrifice, but I guess if I have to go, I have to go.
