Well, Christmas is over for another year. We had a lovely time but Dean was pretty tired.
He had another blood test today and was high enough (just) to have another treatment today.
We are off to Sydney in a couple of hours for New Years Eve and to have a look around. I have made sure he has packed his anti nauseau tablets as he might feel a bit off tonight and tomorrow.
We will be back home on Sunday the 3rd of January.
So HAPPY NEW YEARS everyone. Stay safe!!

Deans levels have dropped even more. The oncologist wants him checked again next Tuesday. If the blood count is still dropping then, then he may have to be admitted to hospital and go on a drip (of what I dont know). If his count is low then that means his immune system is compromised and he is open to infection. At the moment he is 10 above the critical level. So fingers crossed that his levels come back up by next Tuesday.

Deans IV chemo didn't go ahead yesterday as his blood levels weren't quite high enough. He will have another blood test Monday and if it is hign enough then they will get him in later in the day.

Dean has had a couple of ordinary days this week, but isnt feeling too bad at the moment.
He had a blood test today and has more iv chemo scheduled tomorrow so will probably be a quiet weekend as he will be feeling pretty nauseous.

Deans nauseau has improved heaps this week. He was getting very itchy rashes on his legs for a couple of days this week (possible side effect from meds), but that seems to have abated now.
His Mri came back very positive. There has been a very slight reduction in the size of the tumour, which is fantastic.

This has probably been Deans worst week so far on chemo. He has not been able to go to work very much at all, and has been very quiet at home. He is constantly feeling sick and has actually been sick a few times. It is because of the chemo tabs he has to take each night. He has another week of taking them. :<
