Round 3

Well, I finished round 3 of chemo, and start my 3rd round of shots today.  The actual chemo went pretty well.  Since then I've felt pretty up and down.  I am on another kind of anti-nausea drug (I've been trying a new one each time to try to find something that works).  Overall, I think this one is working better because it doesn't knock me out so much, but I still feel really nauseous sometimes. Ugh!  I'm ready for this to be over.

I have one more round left of this type of drug, then I change to a different type of drug for my last four treatments.  I don't know exactly how I'll feel on the different drugs, but most people say it's not quite as hard to deal with, and HUGE BONUS - no shots.  So, I have 10 shots left to go, I CANNOT WAIT to be done with them.  Not only do I really hate giving them to myself, but the bone pain that they produce is just horrendous. 

Anyway, that's about all there is.  Thanks for taking the time to read this - we haven't found words yet to express how much we appreciate all the support and encouragement we've received from people who care about us.  We have the best friends and family in the world!

Now I need another nap. :)


  1. Hi Kelli (and Dave),

    Thanks for the update, sorry things are so rough but looking forward to the new drug, hopefully less side effects, and no shots! I've been praying every day for you guys and will continue to do so. I know God has you in the palm of His hand...
