|Rory and I at breakfast in Disney|
Next week Rory will start round two of this chemo treatment and we say BRING IT ON! Rory, THANKFULLY, tolerated round one with very limited side effects! A few days of diarrhea, but no nausea and his counts never plummeted. He continued to work, go to the gym, and golf. We were even able to enjoy a short trip to Disney World where we ate ourselves silly and got to ride all of Rory's favorites. It was a great vacation and one we both desperately needed.
As Rory enters round 2, continue to pray that he tolerates the chemo well and that it works to kill any cancer cells remaining. Rory's doctors are going to lower his Irinotecan chemotherapy dose by just a smidge in hopes of controlling the diarrhea a little better. Hopefully that'll do the trick. We also need prayers that Rory's counts will come up a little bit so that he can receive chemo on Monday. While his counts never totally bottomed out, they did go down a bit and the blood work from today needs to come up by Monday so that he can start his chemo. After this round of chemo, Rory will have another CT scan done and we need to hear some good news. Pray that the scans show signs of healing and NED.
Enjoy the pictures from below. They are from our Disney trip this past weekend.
