Kemo delayed again

Just talked with Mom. They’re putting off Dad’s first Kemo treatment until Friday. His blood levels are still not where they need to be. To give it to him now would just be too risky.

His blood levels are better than they were even Monday though so it sounds like he is on an up swing. Lets hope it continues. The swelling in his legs is going down slowly too. Though the left is ahead of the right in this department.

I’m heading up there tonight. If all goes well I’ll get to watch the Red Sox clinch the 2004 World Series with Dad by my side. I can’t think of a better way to pass the evening. I’ll spend the night and commute to work (Salem NH) tomorrow morning.
