Never a dull moment....

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day for the most part. Cody definitely felt under the weather. His diarrhea is still hanging on. Even with the Imodian AD. He spent the day laying on the couch and being held. He is now complaining of pain in his knees and some of the joints in his hands. We are not quite sure what is causing this. This is one of the chemo drugs side effects but it should have shown earlier than this. The GCSF that we give him can also cause this but he has had GCSF after every round of chemo and this has never happened before. Last night about 9pm he started getting a fever. It was teetering between the upper 37s and 38. 38 degrees Celsius is the magic number but since it kept going down a little and never went above that the doctor said "keep him at home." We may be heading in today, we will have to wait and see. The poor little guy still isn't eating. He ate 4 chicken nuggets yesterday. We were hoping that his appetite was coming back. Friday night when they got home he ate a half of a cheeseburger before he went to bed. We will see this morning. When I was laying in bed this morning I could hear his stomach growling. One more little twist, before bed last night he vomited after being given the Imodian AD. If he can no longer stomach this I'm not sure what we are going to do.

Keep praying please....

I'll definitely keep praying and hoping his stomach can settle down and his appetite will improve. And I'll keep praying for the rest of the family.

I haven't been able to check on you all for a few days. I'm so sad to read that he's still having some problems with his eating and GI issues. : (

We continue to lift all of you in prayer.
