It's been a fairly quiet couple of days. Tanner is having some problems with stomach acid lately. He had a lab appointment at 2:00 p.m. on Friday and since I get off at 1:00 on Fridays, he decided to go to the office with me so he could work on one of his school packets.

He seemed fine when we first got up but as we were driving down the highway, he told me he was going to be sick. I had to pull over on the shoulder and he was throwing up out the car window and it was all just stomach acid. Then last night he was nauseated again and was only able to eat a little soup.

I think maybe he's having too many fast foods. Also, it seems like if his stomach gets too empty, the stomach acid situation is worse. I'm going to go to the grocery store tomorrow and get some vegetables and meat to prepare on the grill and see if some "healthy" home cooking doesn't help him out. He also said it would be nice if I could make him some potato soup to have in the refrigerator next week while I am at work.

Once the nausea passes, he seems to feel fine. He isn't looking forward to going back to Arkansas and says that he's just tired of feeling bad. Hopefully, he will only have to undergo one round of consolidation chemo and can have some time to recover and gain his strength when we come back home in December.

Tanner, Kelsey and I left this morning at 8:00 am. and went to see Trevor. It was a great visit and I think both of the boys felt better just by being able to see each other and have a chance to talk and laugh for a couple of hours.

I know that it made me feel better just seeing them together for a while. It was a long day and I think both Tanner and Kelsey were feeling a little goofy on the ride home.

  1. Sounds like Tannerboy has a stomach like his granny. I was that way until I started eating three meals a day.....especially breakfast. It was hard to eat early for me but now it is imperative I have something every morning. Glad you all had a good visit with Trevor. I know Tanner enjoyed that too. Wonderful to see him acting his "goofy" self. The jokester is coming back. God is good and we are blessed.
    We love you, Granny and Pop
