So, Macy finished out the first treatment week of the new chemo and Friday night we both thought that maybe this wasn't going to be as bad as we thought. They do a great job of taking care of her during the chemo and medicating her so that she can make it through. But come Saturday, as the weeks medication wore off, the residual effect of the chemo began to take its toll. Macy got very sick and we tried to keep her hydrated and but she basically spent all of Sunday in the bathroom or trying to get sleep and keep medication and liquids down. Well that didn't work so to make a long and awful couple of days short...I took Macy to the hospital early on Monday and she was checked in and stayed overnight. They gave her medication and fluids and Tuesday she was able to go home and try to get back to normal.
Macy is such a strong woman and has done an amazing job dealing with all this. She definitely needs your continued prayers, especially as it comes to dealing with the weekends after treatment weeks. Also, please pray that she doesn't have to do this chemo too long. We need it to be effective and quickly. It sucks to watch her go through this and I know it is so tough for her to go through.
Thanks again for all your support and for the food and prayers and help. Want to especially say thanks to Dr. Lightfoot for coming down to the hospital at 6AM on Monday to help Macy feel so much more confident. That was above and beyond and really helped a lot. Thanks again to everyone for the help.
Love y'all and later...
