After starting off here on the third floor (since ICS was full when we arrived on Tuesday), we got relocated to one of the hospital's best kept secrets...Room 4404! It is very spacious, has a huge bathroom, a couch that makes into a bed and a nice view of the hills above the valley. It almost felt like an "upgrade" you get at the local Marriott! The only downside is that our cell phone coverage in this room is a little less than ideal! We get most texts and once in awhile a call gets through! So if you are having a hard time reaching us--that's why.
Rachel is halfway through her second round of chemo. She has had the usual nausea and loss of appetite that comes with chemo. The anti-nausea medicines make her pretty groggy, but given the choice she'd rather sleep through her treatments than be throwing up the whole time! She is hanging in there and tries to eat a bit when she can. Today's favorites were 1/2 of a Twix bar, some yogurt and some raspberry sherbet! Her craving for pickles is still alive and well!
