A very unpleasant day

Hi everyone:

Day two after Rituxan/Cytoxan infusion has proven to be much worse than day one. Patty threw up very shortly after awakening this morning, and has been bedridden with a pounding headache all day. A bath did little to improve her condition, and a root beer float ice cream bar didn't bring any magic. The only relief she has realized has come from sleep, so it's a bit of a blessing that she's also feeling weak and fatigued.

Tomorrow, we will send vials of Patty's blood for the PRA test; with luck, perhaps we'll hear back with some encouraging numbers within a week. I will feel very disappointed for Patty if she has to endure more toxic treatments with nothing positive to show for her suffering.
