An Interesting Hospital Stay

There have been a few unique things about this hospital stay. First and foremost, his attitude has been better. Andy's spirits have generally been pretty high. This is unusual.

Secondly, he's been eating. It's slowing down a bit because of chemo, but for the first time he's actually eating within the walls of this hospital.

He finally puked from chemo. Yeah, that really sucked and was kinda hard to handle, emotionally. But when it happened I paged the nurse and before I could even start to get him cleaned up, they had him and his room completely cleaned up and puke free. They're experts at this kinda thing I guess.

While his spirits are up, he's very very clingy and needy right now. This chemo is being pretty mean to him. Probably because 1) he was actually healty pre-chemo and 2) he's not used to it anymore.

Unfortunately this means I haven't been able to put in any hours at work, but it's ok. I could use the time off anyway. :)

Chemo is 11:30 - 3:30 today, then we should be going home afterward. Yay!

More later.
