Good Morning Prayer Warriors,
Just like clock work. I show up and Jesse starts throwing up. Even the Nurses are joking about it. Jesse is in decent spirits though. Almost like she expected it too. There is no sense in laying my heart out on my sleeve because by now everyone knows how heart breaking it is to see Jesse dry heaving up the only thing in her tummy....medicine. And there is nothing I can do to help or change the outcome. She proceeded to get this terrible itching rash too. It looked painful. They gave her some medication for it and after the quick shower she took, and rubbing lotion on it, it looked better and didn't itch as bad.
Of course Jesse is freezing cold, in a room that I am piping hot, so I curled up next to her and we started watching a movie. Jesse fell asleep as soon as she got warm from my body heat. That was the first time I saw her comfortable since I got here.
Besides the multiple trips to the bathroom I think Jesse slept pretty well (no throwing up). Of course there is the Nurses waking her up for the treatments she needs like eye drops ect. She got her last dose of Chemo at 5:30 this morning so technically (in my book) this is the last day of Chemo. I can guarantee she will be sick most of the day.
Besides the beeping and all the pain in my body associated with being old it was a normal night sleep at the Hospital (you don't).
I want to thank everyone that reads about Jesse's journey. I know she has a lot of supporters and people praying for her. A special thanks to those who write to her. You are her "life link" while she is in the Hospital. To know you have taken the time to wish her well lightens the load that she is carrying. When I see her smile when she reads someones letter makes my day too. Jesse's smile lights up the room and even through the sadness in her eyes there is a twinkle that I see that reminds me of the Jesse I know that meets me at the door for a hug. Those days will come again. But for now keep the letters coming and the prayers going in to "The Man" and we will all get through this.
P.S. I saw Baby Brady and Rachael in the elevator yesterday. He has something forming on his skin that the Doctors wanted to take a biopsy of so he is being delayed on the bone marrow transplant. Like the rest of us parents she looked tired and weak from "our side" of this ordeal. Please keep them, and everyone else you know going through this trial, in prayer.
Thanks again and the Catrons send you all our love
