Ugh, we are seeing the effects of the chemo lately. Our days have been full of a whole lot of throwing up and diarrhea. Also, you can tell that Skyler's body is pretty achy because he is just so restless. The past three nights he has not slept at all. He just keeps moving around and trying to get comfortable with no success. What makes it worse is that he hasnt been sleeping during the day either. Its really weird. Im used to him being either completely sedated or so sick that he just sleeps all the time. Last night we gave him some Morphine to see if that would help him sleep, it didnt do anything for him. It makes my body hurt and uncomfortable just watching him. I cant imagine how awful he must be feeling. Tonight they wrote an order for an extra dose of Morphine and Ativan together to see if that will help him sleep. My fingers are crossed for a peaceful night!
On a good note, I was able to go down to the front lobby and hear an amazing choir sing some Christmas songs. One of the guys in the choir was our friend Rachel's brother. Rachel also has Leukemia, Im grateful that I was able to listen to the choir with her and her mom. It really did brighten up my night and lift my spirits. Thank you so much guys!
