Day 2

Wade here again.  Started the day off with a unit of blood.  This is very common for transplant patients because their blood counts are so low from the chemo.  Holly is still very weak with headache, nausea, diarrhea, just overall pretty yucky feeling, but I have to say that she is a little better. Baby steps.

The best thing of the day.  When the doctor came in and heard about her headache, he authorized Tylenol.  Since she is 4 days past chemo, she can have it now.  This is the first medicine that has helped Holly’s headache.  yea!

Thanks you for all the comments and prayers.  I read them to Holly everyday and she usually cries and says we have the most Awesome friends and family.  I agree!  Thanks for being here for us.

    Just checking up on you both! Last night @ bedtime prayers, Summer, Sage & I prayed that the Lord would heal & comfort you both, as only HE can. Read John 11:4 if you get a chance. Holly, you are such a special lady, and we all pray that each day will get better. I’m glad God gave you such a caring, compassionate spouse to help you through this trying time.
    Take care!!

    Isn’t it amazing when you feel you just can’t feel any worse God sends a solution! With all your side effects if the Tylenol can solve one, you will truly feel better. Sounds like an improvement to me. Just see how powerful all the prayers have been?

    May God continue to bless and comfort both of you!

    Love, Becky
