We started out really well today. Tanner was feeling so good he took his Latch & Hook Rug up to the hospital and worked on it while we were waiting on his labwork results (the nurses all got a kick out of that!). When the report came back, we found out that his white blood count rose up over 3 so he's no longer neutropenic. Yea!! His plateletts are still in the 20's so they still have to rise to 50 (or at least near there) before he can come home.
He was so excited that he could go out in public he wanted to go to On the Border for lunch. We drove straight there from the hospital and ordered our food and all of a sudden he got really pale and light headed and felt like he was going to throw up. We had to ask the waitress to pack our food up to go and we came back to the apartment.
He's feeling really weak and when we got to the apartment, he went straight to the couch. He couldn't eat his enchilidas because the cheese was making him gag. I made him some chicken noodle soup but he's having a hard time even getting that down.
His blood pressure was 97/56 - which is still pretty low. I told him even if he couldn't eat much right now, he needs to try and get some fluids down.
It's so up and down with him right now and he just wants to feel better so bad. He's had a much harder time dealing with this round of treatment than we thought he would - especially since the chemo was just one day.
I can't wait for the day he feels good again!
