Loc: Maine (IBS-A stable since July '05!)

So far, he doesn't feel too bad at all. No immediate side effects. His biggest problem is that he has CONSTANT hiccups - it's not a side effect of the chemo, they think the tumor in his stomach got bigger and it's pressing on a nerve.

He has a list of things to watch out for - mouth sores, for example - and he has to stay away from anyone who's been sick. But I knew all that stuff before he told me.

So... four more days of chemo this week, then he's off for 3 weeks. They haven't even told him how many cycles of this he'll be doing - I guess they're going to play it by ear.

Thanks for all the good thoughts and well wishes, everybody. It really cheers me up to know so many people are keeping us in mind!
