Cycle Two DONE!
Nathan was able to get chemotherapy on Monday since his counts were up from Friday when they sent us home. He has been in bed since we got home late Monday evening. He is feeling pretty weak, after completing two cycles of this chemotherapy. He has a CT scan, PET scan, labs, and MRI on Monday to see how it is working. This will be the first time they will check him since starting this new type of treatment. We will get the results of the test on Tuesday morning. He has lost a little weight not too bad, and has had no hair loss so far. Pretty much his side effects are loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue, and his arm is pretty sore and swollen from the injection site of the chemotherapy. Prayers for Tuesday it would be really nice and uplifting to finally get some good news from all he has been through. If this is not working he will most likely go into the hospital for the extensive treatment and we are praying he does not have to go through that. I will update after we get the news on Tuesday.
