Day 98

Chemo Day #5 - Just One More To Go…
Sarah had lots of support today at her treatment. Her visitors included Grandpa and Grandma Hawkins, Momma and Papa Hawk, Grandpa Lien (bearing gifts from Grandma Lien), Momma Lien and Sister Lien. Her chemo treatment started off well, but about ¼ of the way through she began to have some pretty bad nausea. This was kind of odd as Sarah had one pill form and one drip form of anti-nausea medication before she even began the treatment. However, this did not stop the nurse from bringing out “The Big Guns.” She promptly ordered Sarah some heftier drugs and after awhile Sarah began to feel some relief. The heftier drugs did cause drowsiness though and have made Sarah fairly sleepy for the rest of the day. I don’t know about you guys…but I would much rather have Sarah sleepy than nauseated. Sarah did muster up the consciousness to have one more good meal out before her taste buds stopped working for a week. At the restaurant, she comically added that she felt as though she had kicked back three strong margaritas. Slurred speech, droopy eyelids, and occasional clumsiness were all part of the package today. Sarah is home now and is passed out next to me on the couch. A cuter sight I could not imagine. Please pray that the nausea stays under control, that the results of her CT scan would be fantastic, and that God would bring miracles into our situation.

Thanks for All Your Prayers and Support!!!
