Jesse and I did not get much sleep. This seems to be a repeat of round one. Jesse has had a fever from 101-105 since the first day. She is shaking with the chills, and vomiting every time she sits up. The cause is most likely the Cyterabine, but they have taken cultures to be sure. Jesse's head hurts so bad, on a scale of 1-10, it is a 15. They are giving her pain meds and Tylenol around the clock. Jesse had her much dreaded first chemo shot on Sunday. They first numbed her leg, then iced it. We where all prepared for the worst. The nurse shot it in, and we asked Jes how bad was it, and she gave it a pain 4. I think her head hurt so bad, the shot did not compare. Jesse will have 3 days with no chemo, but that it not such a relief as one might think. The 3 days she has already received is very strong, and will continue to beat her down. On Thursday night, she will get the first of the last 4 doses, ending Saturday Morning. Then one final shot and she is done!!! She already cant make the walk to the bathroom, so we have a bedside commode. They will be testing her today for C-diff, the intestinal bacteria.
It is hard to see her in such bad shape, and it is only the 3rd day. I am not sure how much her body can really take.
Please pray for Jesse-
