Homeward bound...

Good news today! We're being discharged tomorrow, probably late afternoon. It's a day earlier than we expected, so we're very excited.

Henry has done so much better this cycle. Granted, we're not the ones experiencing the chemotherapy, but by looking at his general level of discomfort, this week has been so much better than the first round.

We expect him to continue to feel poorly for the next several days, but feel more confident about our ability to recognize things that can help him feel better. Most importantly, if he's not eating we can restart his TPN (IV nutrition).

We're keeping our fingers crossed that it will be a quiet couple of weeks and we can avoid another hospitalization until chemo round 3 begins.
