Jimmie finished the first week of round #2 today and so far, so good. The prescription insert mentioned that the side effects for one round may not be the same in the next, and that's turning out to be the case. Jimmie's constant headache has finally cleared, the mouth sores are gone, and the metal taste is decreasing. (He ate a Reece's Peanut Butter Cup yesterday and could actually taste it for a change.) And thankfully, no new side effects have cropped up . . . yet. So this week at least has been one of improvements.
Now the problem will be trying to keep Jimmie from over doing it. Take yesterday for example. He had put in several hours at his desk so after a late lunch he told me he was going to take a break and rest in the back yard for a bit while I went to do an errand. I thought that was a great idea - until I got back and found him installing a new pump in our pond. That is certainly not my idea of resting!
