Judy Update

We spent the day at MD Anderson yesterday. Judy had her first chemo treatment. It was supposed to last ten hours, but it took eleven. We got home around 10:30 last night. Judy did fine. She had a slight reaction to one of the drugs, but some Benadryl in the IV took care of that. In addition to the chemo, she's taking a powerful anti-nausea drug, an antibiotic, and an antiviral. They don't want her to get sick or to get an infection of any kind. When she took the anti-nausea drug this morning at 6:00, she said she was feeling okay. Then she went back to bed. I don't blame her. Anyway, so far, so good. Thanks, as ever, for all the support.

Dear Bill and Judy,
I wanted to let you know I'm thinking about both of you and sending "healing thoughts". Bill, it's heartwarming to see your support and love for Judy. It must be a great comfort and help to her to have such a caring person to count on during this difficult time.

Take Care!
