Chemo #6

It's almost time for chemo #7 and I haven't posted anything about #6.  The good news was that for the 2nd week in a row Jimmie's hemoglobin had nudged upward slightly so the iron infusions must be helping.  (He has now had 3.)  This infusion basically doubles the time Jimmie must be tied to the IV and increases the risk of reaction, so it is a relief to see some results.  The bad news was that this last chemo apparently increased the fluid in his lungs because his chest pain got noticeably worse.

But it was still a wonderful weekend.  Our daughter, son-in-law and grandson came to town to celebrate Christmas and birthdays all rolled into one.  But how do I describe all that?

There were presents, of course . . .

. . . some pick'in
. . . and grinn'in

. . . a little posing

. . . and lots of playing around!

It was a very happy family time!
