This week Dennis has really struggled with fatigue. Usually by Monday and Tuesday he is doing a little better but this week he was very tired even those days. One of the hard things with all of this is how unpredictable his days are. It is hard for him to plan anything due to this. He did go along on a short field trip with Brooke on Tuesday but was totally exhausted by it. He is on the last week of his four week cycle of treatments. That means that next week Wednesday-Sunday he will have his chemo to take each night. His blood work continues to stay strong so that is good. With colds going around it is important for helping him fight one if he would get it. It also could impact his treatments if the levels fall too low. So far that has not been the case.
- Dennis to not catch the cold I have.
- Less fatigue.
- Encouragement - it is difficult to be and feel sick for so long. We both struggle with this from time to time.
I have been fighting a cold and was totally spent by the time I got home tonight so we decided to use a coupon we had and order a Dominos pizza. About the time the pizza was to arrive a fire truck pulled up in front of our house. Dennis was telling me, "Hey, there's a fire truck in our neighborhood. They're stopping at our house!" The fireman got out along with the pizza delivery guy. Turns out it is Fire Prevention Week and if your smoke detectors were in working order the pizza was free! We had a free pizza tonight! Thanks guys and thank you Lord for providing for us in this way.
