Friday, the 26th

Chemo finished up around 3 p.m. Doctor Hajjar had told us previously that he'd let Drew go this evening; but, after considering Drew's nausea, he wondered if allowing Drew to go would be wise. He's had quite a bit of nausea and hasn't eaten since Wednesday. In the hospital they would be able to at least keep Drew hydrated. So, he talked to Drew and shared with him his thinking. Of course, Drew was very disappointed, and Dr. Hajjar could tell. So, he told Drew that he'd give him until 7 p.m. to receive the intravenous fluid and then he'd re-evaluate him. In the meantime, Mom got a crash course in giving the Neuopogen shots that he'd have to have for 10 days to build his white blood count. Finally at 9:00, we are given our discharge papers. Drew slept well and had little pain through the night. It was good to be home and sleep in our own beds.
