Cancer Update: Treatment day 24/35Apr 16, 2008 7:07 AM
Yesterday we were officially 2/3 of the way through the cancer treatment. C has had 2/3 of both the chemos and the radiations. He is doing suprisngly ok.
The 2nd chemo kind of knocked the wind out of his sails a bit and it took about 1 week for him to recover. He is still not eating very well, only managing fairly soft foods or liquid (high cal shakes). He lost 15 pounds last week so is really trying hard this week to eat as he is worried they will make him get a feeding tube which would be a shame now that he is so close to the end (1 chemo and 11 radiations left including today's). He has definitely improved and has been seen scoffing pancakes, omelettes, bananas and butter tarts(?). Hopefully this weeks weight loss shouldn't be as bad, today is weigh-in day.
