Healing blizzards

Hi everyone:

As you can see, we pulled out the big guns yesterday in the hopes of bringing Patty around -- a medium Butterfinger Blizzard from DQ. This was, of course, a standard part of the early chemo regimen, and remains a fairly reliable standby for those days in which Patty's stomach betrays her. The treat, along with a few bites of chicken noodle soup, represented the sum total of Patty's meals yesterday.

Patty never really bounced back yesterday (even with the treat), but she's much improved today. Her hands are pretty shaky, and she still feels weak, but she is far less nauseous. We are still waiting to hear back from her doctors about next steps; I suppose we should regard the lack of urgency in responding as a good thing. Days like yesterday do bring back much of the worry that had been set aside for quite a while.

Have a good Thursday.
