Physical side effects were a bit better, but the psychological/emotional challenges were way better for us. Still had that nasty chest pain, and threw up around 4am this morning, but it was all way more manageable. When you know what to expect, even if its really shitty, its easier than when its unknown. So we kind of expected the barfing, kind of expected the chest pain and could at least better control the blood sugar issues thanks to the insulin strategy our GP and her nurse practitioner came up with. Both of them called today and yesterday to see if all was going ok and to make sure we didnt have any more questions. Pretty amazing care. Really, we are very lucky to have such an amazing system of super professionals helping us. Too bad the GI from pre diagnosis was the C- in all this as everyone else has been A++. Even the pharmacist just called from Marchese. Because Kath could not keep the steroid pills down, we got them in IV form this time around. He called just now to see how it was going and what our schedule was like so the repeats would come in a timely manner. Yes, on a Sunday. Very cool.
So cycle #2 with help from the crew is almost behind us. A little recovery now, and more importantly, hopefully all those chemicals are beating back those little cancer mets.
