Jon has been sick since my treatment on Thursday. At first we assumed it was sympathy sickness - he has a habit of feeling sick on my behalf, and has been very faithful about it with each round of chemo so far. But he just got worse as the weekend went on, and today he spent the day in bed running a fever and feeling rotten. This looks like the classic flu to me - fever, aches, congestion, etc. I want him to be feeling miraculously better by tomorrow - it's his birthday. I would also appreciate prayer for Gilead and for me since neither of us is supposed to be super resistant to bugs right now.
Yesterday was an uncomfortable day for me. The shot that follows the Taxol hit me pretty hard, but I did find that being up and about didn't make me feel any worse. It helped to distract me. Friends came over for a short visit after church, and we had a great time. Today I've felt much better. I keep having the sensation of a spinal block in my back, but that's been the worst of it. (That feeling is still pretty fresh in my memory.)
