January 8, 2009

I spoke with Dad this morning at 9:45a.m. He said that Val had a good night. She felt like watching a little television last night. She took some pain medicine that helped reduce the stomach cramping. This morning she took a shower without much help from Dad. When she got out of the shower she tried on some cloths by herself! She did not feel like eating much this morning, but she is drinking the odwalla organic vitamin induced juice smoothies (a little advertising) that Denise found for her. The nurse had already been there this morning to take a blood sample.
Dad was very upbeat about how well Val was feeling. He was well rested himself. I will be in Barre tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. to drive them to Val's second chemo treatment.
On Tuesday Val showed Dad and I that her hair was starting to fall out. Denise is going to buy her a few head scarfs today.
I know everyone is praying for a successful treatment tomorrow and for Val to win this battle that she is fighting. Thank-you for all of your prayers and support.
