Well last night definitely did not end well. Almost right after I finished posting yesterday’s blog, I became very nauseous, and then ended up vomiting and dryheaving for the next 10 minutes or so. Not exactly the greatest way to end my day or begin my night. The doctors thought that the reason for it was the combination of the chemo and the anti-biotic that I have been on. Oh well.
Either way, I actually slept very well. It was probably the best night of sleep I have gotten yet…imagine that. They brought me a decent breakfast (scrambled eggs w/ cheese, hashbrowns, and some rice krispies). I took a shower and waited for them to bring in my chemo. Not the most exciting of mornings…I suppose unexciting means that it is a good morning.
I’ve been seeing the hospital chaplain every morning for an “Our Father” followed by communion. He talks to me for a bit every day and gives me a lot of positive thoughts and prayers.
I had a few people call throughout the day but for the most part didn’t have any visitors until later on. The first visitor of the day was my best friend from high school, Nathan. He’s been an amazing friend. He stopped over, even though the weather was absolutely atrocious, and played some games with me. We played a little bit of Sheephead (a card game) along with some Xbox 360. It’s pretty typical for me and Nate to get into our “gaming mode” when we get together. He stayed for a couple of hours and then left due to the weather getting worse and worse. Shortly after he left, my mother came. She brought some new stuff for me to use: some clean clothes and some other amenities. Thanks, Mom!
