21st March Chemo Day 28

Jane continues to improve so very slowly. She gets a little stronger every day, her breathing is becoming just a little more normal and the cough is vastly improved compared with a few weeks ago. She’s also been able to leave the oxygen switched off a couple of times today which has to be good but she’s still very tired. It’s a shame that tomorrow Tuesday she’s back in hospital for the double infusion chemo session which pulled her right down 3 weeks ago. Hopefully though, the better symptom management using oxygen, morphine and a corrected post chemo injection regime will give her a much better experience this time. We still trust that the benefits from lesions shrinking and relieving coughing and breathing problems will outweigh the detrimental side effects caused by chemo.

It’ll be a long day tomorrow as I have an 8.30am x-ray to check out the persistent cough I’ve had since December. The last thing we need is any more health complications… though since I went to see my GP the cough seems to have disappeared!

Romans 15:13 ‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’ (NIV)
