Finishing Chemo!

by Shannon on June 5, 2008

Yesterday was Adam’s last day of chemo!  I asked him if we were going to have a party and although he said, "Maybe not today," he did have a huge grin on his face. 

So far, the side effects remain similar to what Adam has experienced all the way through.  Today, Thursday, is a "rest day" in his schedule and transplant will be tomorrow.  Doctors are expecting his red blood cell and platelet counts to drop pretty quickly over the next few days but they’re hoping they won’t see the fever that usually accompanies the drop in his counts. 

Jo and Rich are hanging in there.  They’ve split things up so that Jo is at the hospital during the day and Rich takes the nights.  I hope you’ll keep them in your thoughts along with Adam.
