Resting in the infusion room, waiting to be released
Steve has had no adverse side effects so far! He is exhausted, though. He napped for about an hour. He's now sitting up in the comfy green family room chair with closed eyes, listening to Cooper read a G.I. Joe comic book aloud to Grandma.
He'll keep a low profile tomorrow, watching for signs of nausea. He also needs to be extra cautious with his balance. Dr. M says that fatigue, stress, medications and now the new treatment PLUS the growing tumor are affecting his balance and left-side sluggishness. He needs to get caught up on sleep and let his body rest so he can be safer when moving.
This week wouldn't have been possible without help from so many selfless friends and family members. No one has hesitated to help with Cooper and Katie or to help around the house or to bring food. Thank you for making our lives easier.
