Tricia's not feeling well today. Very tired and her stomach is really bothering her. As I've mentioned before, because she has CF, she is constantly dealing with digestive issues, so it's hard now to know if any problems are related to the CF or to the chemo, but, more than likely, today is a chemo problem.
Also, because she is still only less than five months removed from the double lung transplant (which means she hasn't yet "fully" recovered), and because she is taking a few handful of transplant drugs every day before the added medications she is now taking for the lymphoma, her body is having a rough time. She cannot take some of the typical cancer drugs (like those that help boost white blood count) because they would cause a greater risk for rejection. All of this, plus a few other factors, make her journey with chemo very different than most others (again, not to minimize the sufferings of anyone who has to deal with chemo), which is why she literally needs somebody with her 24/7 for the next few days. Tricia is as tough as God makes them, and I know that, when she is hurting and "tired", she really means it.
It's a burden to think of her going through this several more times over the next few months, and a blessing to know that she should be feeling better by the end of the week...
Again, thanks for your prayers today and the next few days.
