A balance of medication

Yesterday was probably the worst day I have had radiation and sickness wise. I spent a lot of time talking to the nurse and trying to figure out if X or Y med would work better than the A and C combination I was taking earlier. We're going to try something today and hopefully it'll be "the one".

Radiation does really wear you out. I was skeptical, but now I am tired. I've been getting rides this week to radiation as I am either not healthy enough to drive (getting sick in the car) or the meds I am on are such that I am not supposed to be driving.

So far I've lost 6 pounds. Weighed in yesterday at 139, down from 145. I guess not eating a whole lot since Friday will do that to ya. (However bringing it all back up has kept that food from my mouth in the first place) I've been keeping pretty quiet at home between treatments. Not a lot of energy to be out and about right now. It really feels like I have a flu or some kind of bug except that when the anti-nausea medication is working all I am is a little bit tired. Strange stuff micro-waves.

Lisa and I continue to thank you for the support. We know we haven't seen many of you very much as of late, but hopefully this new year will change that. Pray for total healing!!
