Sleepy... Day 194 25MAY09
Josh spent most of today sleeping. He woke up at 3:00am and stayed up until 5:30 or so before he went back to sleep. One of the side effects of the steroids is insomnia and we think that is what is happening. He sleeps fitfully and will wake up at the slightest noise. We have decided to take him to the clinic first thing in the morning to get his counts checked, both us think he probably needs a transfusion. But the labs will tell us for sure. He has just not been himself this weekend and both us are a little concerned. With any luck it is just the cumulative effect of the chemo and his counts are okay. If not he can get what he needs to start feeling a little better. It is really hard when he is so totally wiped out.
