We didn’t want to say anything about Brandon’s family vacation until they were back at home because of the whole “don’t post online about being out of town” when the house is empty. Brandon was able to make the trip to Florida with his family. We really weren’t sure he’d be able to get through the airport and onto the plane, but the Decadron injection he got before he left helped him just enough to be able to do it.
He had a couple of days when he was able to go out to eat and actually enjoy a meal with his family. He had a couple when he tried to do that but had to cut it short because he wasn’t feeling well. He was able to walk to the beach once or twice but couldn’t stay long at all, of course. A big part of his time was spent in the condo, but he spent good time with Avery and was able to see her enjoying the beach and sunshine. It gave him an opportunity to truly get away from the routine this cancer has created in his life.
Since being home, he hasn’t felt very well. He continues to lose weight, even though he seemed to be eating a little more in Florida than he had been able to before. He has appointments at the cancer center tomorrow and will begin his next round of chemo. Please say a prayer for him!
