Day +2 GCSF

Today was another great day for Kevin. He once again was successful in eating without getting ill. I don't want to mislead and paint a picture of him eating like the rest of us, but for being an inpatient recently administered chemo, stem cell infusion, and other medicines to protect his body he's doing wonderful. The doctor and nurses all agree that this first cycle has gone very smoothly thus far. They even lowered his TPN to 20 hours a day since his body is processing it well and he's eating on top of it. Rachel had her TPN experience today and did very well. She's nervous about it, but after a couple more times with assistance I'm confident she'll have no problems at all. Kevin and I go back to the Target House tomorrow. It will be nice for both of us. Having seen his vast improvement the last several days I'm quite optimistic about his return. He'll not leave the apartment much when his counts are down, but he has plenty to do, including school, wii, and movies. We have an early morning so I'll sign off for now.
