Brandon hasn’t had to see a doctor or go to a clinic in 6 days. Seems like a long time. He’s feeling about the same, which isn’t great. He still has no energy to do the things he’d like to do. He was able to get out of the house over the weekend to run a short errand with Kristen, but he was hoping to feel up to doing more. The medication they gave him to help with energy didn’t do the trick, and the medication they have been giving him to help with nausea doesn’t always work either. Of course, he’s getting a one-two punch since his cancer is in his abdomen. If it’s not the chemo causing nausea, it’s the cancer itself. He’s trying his best to eat and maintain weight, but it’s a difficult battle for him.
He’s on a break from chemo for another week, but he has an appointment to see his oncologist on Thursday. They will run labs, and perhaps the doctor will have some other ideas for treating his symptoms.
Brandon has the heart and the will to fight, and that is what’s important. His body needs to get with the program! As always, we are praying for his strength and energy to return.
