Ding ding, round two

So, it's another weekend away with my wonderful family-except I can't stay with them, and the venue is the hospital rather than a nice hotel somewhere.  But, I'm glad we're here.

Surgery to replace Luke's hickman line went ahead yesterday morning, and all went as planned. Then they started chemo yesterday afternoon, so we are about half way through round two right now.

The doctors and nurses all told the chemo side effects would most likely get worse after the second round, but Luke really struggled yesterday afternoon. He didn't seem to be in pain. Just entirely out of sorts. When we decided to give him some calpol in the evening to help him, he promptly vommitted all over me (and it really smelt like proper sick, bot the mild milky normal baby sick which is all we've had before. After that I smelt, but Luke was a bit happier!

All being well we might all get to go home on Sunday night, if not it will be Monday. Then, assuming a general anaesthetic team is available, we get an MRI on Friday and will actually be able to see our nemisis for the first time in a couple of months.

Anyway, Luke is asleep, Letitia is having a shower, and once she's done what she needs to do I'm off home to have something to eat and try to sleep.
