Chemo starts

Jeanine's chemo began at 3:30 yesterday afternoon. Which means at this point, she has had 3 treatments.

She has so far managed to skip the chills with the help of medicine, but has added cold sweats to her list of symptoms. With her very 1st treatment, her first symptom was extreme tiredness. She has added nausea, vomiting, heartburn. Her blood pressure has been good so far and her pulse, not unexpectedly, a little high. Her temperature is normal.

Her doctor came to see her last night and told her that he had talked to the radiologist. There was no change in her tumors after the last batch of chemo.

I'm heading back to her bedside soon after enjoying a few hours of sleep at home.
