Today's Appointment

James had blood work and an appointment this morning.  Blood counts were still high enough that he didn't need the shot.  He's been pretty sick all day today...nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, sore throat and the list goes on.  These are all side effects of the chemotherapy.  Dr. Coscio recommended seeing an ophthalmologist at MD Anderson Downtown for the blurred vision.  If the chemo is causing irreversible damage to James' vision, she will change the drugs and or dosage.  To sum it all up, James just feels like poo!

Some of you know my Papa, August, also has cancer.  He was diagnosed over the summer and had surgery in September.  He has been released from his surgeon and is scheduled to start chemo treatments Monday.  Please pray for him as well as James.

In non-cancer news, Tate had a check up and immunizations today.  He is a healthy, happy puppy!
 
Be blessed all,
Amy

  2. Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net) may be another choice. i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore throat.
