March 18, 09 Six days past chemo#5
I have been asked by Val to write a special thank you to all who made her birthday so special. There are four things: Thank you for the flowers, cards, phone calls and presents. It was a better day than she expected. Dad made her eggplant parmesan for dinner, and it was his best batch!! Val was able to sit outside for a couple of hours yesterday because the weather was so good. She had visitors from Pruddy and Ginny as well as Rudy and Lea.
Val 's pain has gotten worse today, and she feels more sick today as the steroids were stopped yesterday. The prunes seem to be helping along with the Miralax so at least her cramps form constipation have been avoided thus far. Today is the visit form the home health nurse who draws blood and gives the Nulasta shot.
Love and prayers to val always.......Salynn
