Biochemo Round 2, Days 3-4

This continues to be a tough week for Greg. He stays nauseated most of the time and eats very little. Most of the days he spends in the bed dozing on and off. He has absolutely no energy and just walking to the bathroom is tiring for him. His blood pressure has been pretty low at times and his fever will occasionally spike, so they are keeping a close eye on this. The good news is that all of his labwork continues to look good and he is coming to the end of treatment! His last bag of IL-2 is running now and should be complete about 3am. He will get one more interferon injection in the morning and then be DONE!! At this point he is scheduled to be discharged some time on Monday. Depending on the time, how Greg is feeling and how the flights look, we may come home on Monday or stay the night at the hotel and come home on Tuesday.

Please pray that Greg tolerates the rest of this treatment with no complications and that he begins to feel better once it is complete tomorrow.

Thanks for praying for our family!

Trusting His Plan,
Greg, Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob
