Harv has started (and almost completed) the first round of the new chemo. It's not unbearable but it is certainly not increasing his energy level. His appetite MIGHT have increased a little bit... He's slept well most nights with a combination of various "remedies." Last night was not one of those nights. Some nights (and I guess last night was one of them) he's not actually in pain, but his brain won't turn off -- regardless of the pharmaceuticals he uses to help him relax.
He does pretty well (usually) at the beginning of the day, but loses steam after lunch. Sometimes naps are very long. Sometimes he doesn't have an actual nap, but kind of rests.
Here's what I would love. I would love it if this particular chemo would do amazing things and shrink all of the tumors. I would love it if his energy was back and he was able to feel really good inside and out. I would love for some ridiculous and amazing miracle to occur and have his tumors just disappear.
So... if you believe in miracles, I would love it if you would pray for him -- and me -- and our family -- that this would actually happen. 'Cause that would be very, very nice. And, actually, even if you don't believe, you could still pray for one. :-)
I, for one, am weary. Granted, the weariness comes from more than Harv's cancer and the treatment and trips to Seattle... but I am weary. And, I haven't heard Harvey use those words, but I think he might feel kind of the same way.
We have a relaxing few days planned for July and then there's a wedding in September. We would love to feel enthusiastic and energized for both of those things...and all that comes in between.
Thank you, people... And, much peace and many blessings to you all...
