What a week

Thursday, January 27, 2011
Needless to say this week has been a rough one. DH has been so miserable. It just hurts to see him like this. He has 11 treatments to go. We have a countdown in the kitchen, marking off each day. Thankfully, he gets the weekends off; so hopefully he'll get a little reprieve. His doctor offered to lower the dosage and extend the treatments, but DH said no way. He wants them over as soon as possible. Thank God for phenigran and zofran. Between the two, it helps him get some peace and rest.

After four days, we've both questioned the decision to have the treatments, especially when he didn't necessarily have to have them. Then we remember the reason we said yes - peace of mind. Once he starts to feel better, we plan to hit the road running on the adoption front. Our current agency is refunding our money, so we can use it towards a new agency. That will be a huge help.

Anyway, so glad tomorrow is Friday. I'm ready for some rest and I know DH is too.


  1. Thinking of you and your DH!


  2. It really sucks that your DH has to be one of the few who reacts this way to treatments, and then it had to coincide with your adoption classes. I'm glad to hear that your agency is giving you a refund and you'll be able to get things really moving as soon as your DH feels better!

  3. I found your blog through ICLW. So sorry to hear about your hubbys cancer. I will say an extra prayer for healing & peace. Glad your current agency refunded your money so you can move on once things are a little calmer! TGIF!


  4. So sorry he's feeling so bad right now. But like you said, when it's all over you will have peace of mind, which is priceless.

  5. ((HUGS)) It will get better. These treatments are always rough, but they do work.

  6. So sorry, thinking of you and DH and hoping that he's able to get some much needed rest & relaxation this weekend ((hugs))
