Well...she's miserable and has been since last night. This really sucks. If it's this hard on me, I can't imagine what it's like for her.

Stay strong bro....For her.

And remember, it is ALWAYS darkest, before the dawn...

I know that words are very cheap...

But hear me, I've BEEN there...In the 'bad old days' of Chemo and Radiation...I got the "Shake and Bake" versions...

Stay strong, upbeat, and as positive as you can...

You both WILL make it...Make that your mantra.

You are never alone.

Prayers continue...

Alyssa couldn't function at work today. She called the doctor for a better antinausea med. The first one cost 4$. The one they prescribed today was 450$. We aren't even close to rich, so I turned it down. Alyssa went to the hospital instead and got a 90 min infusion of some stuff that seems to be working. Although they had to stick her 3 times until they got a good vein...turns out she was way dehydrated. She is doing much better now...me....I'm workin on an ulcer.

Nathan,
When my cousin's 14 month old daughter was diagnosed with cancer (she's fully recovered and considered cured, now), he wasn't sleeping or eating, and I told him what I'm about to tell you...you will do no one any good if you make yourself sick. You've got people depending on you, and if you get sick, who will take care of you...and them?
Of course, the shoe was on the other foot when my mom was diagnosed...I had people telling me the same thing. I know that it is easier said than done, but at least try to keep yourself calm, relaxed, and in good health. If there aren't any support groups in your area, look into a yoga class (or even a dvd if you don't want to be away from Alyssa).

Nathan, your wife is in my prayers too.

Please do heed Margarette's post. It doesn't do any good to burn yourself out.

Hang in there.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

Echoing Margrette here pal...

You must take care of yourself in order to be there for your wife and daughter...I know it's hard, but you have to do it.

There really is no choice...

Montemagic, you are one h#ll of a guy...God Bless you for your generous offer and if we can swing it, count us in on a donation!

Nathan...I don't know what the initial med for nausua was, but ask her Doc about Visteril (Sp?)...They gave that to me for nausua and it worked great...Plus, it was cheap, at the time...wouldn't know about nowadays...

Again, take care of yourself so you can take care of the family...It's the most important thing pal.

Prayers for you and your family continue...

I saw that Steve. I'd just like to say "Holy Crap, and Thank you very much!"

That was very generous, and you will help make Jonah a very happy kid this Xmas!

Nathan, my thoughts and prayers are with you buddy. My 18 year old daughter is a 1o year survivor and when she was 10 all the doctors including our palliative care specialist told us we were days from the end.

Then a miracle happened and continues to happen. It ain't over till it's over and we don't get to decide the timeline.

Enjoy life, there are no dress rehersals.

Sincerest,
