Hexalen en route
Lucy's still having some stomach issues. She has had stomach problems with every oral antibiotic she has taken even before her cancer. The Augmentin is done Thursday morning. She called the doctor and was told to take some Compazine for her stomach upset. The stomach problem might take a few more days to resolve. As such, her oncologist extended her disability to April 5th. She was originally scheduled to go back to work this Friday. That was disappointing for her, too.
Lucy's legs are almost back to normal size. Her ankles are still somewhat stiff but are getting better. She still needs her walker because of her ankles, but her movement speed is getting faster.
Her Hexalen will arrive tomorrow. It sounds like she will be taking five capsules per day, but the dosage can be spread throughout the day.
Lucy's sisters have been very supportive the past couple days. I ran into a long-time (I hate the word old in this case, because he isn't even if I am!) friend yesterday and had a nice talk with him. Thanks, Dave, you don't know how much you helped! And thank you to everyone who sent emails of support!
