Chemo starts tomorrow

Assuming all Lisa's blood counts are good, Chemo will start tomorrow. Unfortunately we will be doing this inpatient because she still is on contact precautions and can't be in the outpatient area where there is "shared" space with the other chemo kids.

As much as I hate having to go back, it is probably for the best. While Lisa is doing good, she is still not eating regularly, she seems a bit more tired than usual and she is complaining her leg hurts again (a little panic races thru me whenever she complains about it!) Seems like we need the chemo to keep the cancer at bay. Being inpatient, while very inconvenient for the family, will mean the nurses can administer the nutrition and meds and give Mike a has been no fun mixing all the meds and hooking her up every night and doing middle of the night cleanups! I'm sure we'll still be doing some of the work in the hospital, but there is a sense of security having a nurse there to help and who has also gotten some solid sleep.
