Today rod gets two different chemo drugs. So far no real side effects ; this morning he did break out in hives from a pill used to help his kidneys. With each chemo he gets drugs to help with nausea, organs, antiviral, antibiotic, etc. He is not getting a lot of rest just as he gets comfortable, someone always come in - either a bag on IV is empty, more vitals, food, weigh him. He is trying to restnow while I am writing this. The nurses say next week will be tough from the side effects. Thank you foll your support.

Rod is doing ok. He got through the Port surgery pretty well. His neck was pretty sore. Monday night he got 2 units of blood.
Tuesday was the start of chemo - only 30 minutes. He hasn't felt any side effects yet. He is still extremely weak and anemic.
Wednesday is another 30 minutes of chemo. He is getting another blood transfusion now.
