Monday night and Tuesday morning

last night was rough for jackie sue. they began the chemo treatment and she got very sick. she had uncontrollable shakes, vomiting, low blood pressure. she also had no sleep. the chemo treatment lasts 15 hours. this morning she is better. she is reading and eating well. the docs tell us the reaction to the drug (Rituxan) is normal for first time treatment. I guess one might expect a wierd reaction from a drug made of mice and rat cells. by the way...jackie now has strange cravings for cheese! to cheer her up I bought a couple of lbs of chocolate including some of the biggest Reeses cups you ever saw (1/2 lb ea).

platelets back to 2. docs say this is normal.
