Tomorrow's the day

Kevin and I are enjoying our last night together at the Target House before we go inpatient at St. Jude. We're about prepared as we're going to be. We've had consult after consult with trasnplant/chemo nurses, doctors, and nurse practicioners. We surprisingly have a fairly long day tomorrow, prior to admitance at 8 p.m. I think we may be at St. Jude's until 3 or so.

Today was a better day for Kevin as far as pain goes. He was very sore yesterday. He was still pretty bad at his noon appointment today, so the doctor actually ordered morphine and they administered that through his line. It really helped out, then we switched his pill form pain medicine for liquid, so he's taking it now. yesterday he refused to take the pill, and last time we crushed up a pill he became ill. All in all a better day. Kevin is incredibly brave, and not showing much nervousness in anticipation of him going inpatient tomorrow. He's just happy with his Hickman that he'll no longer experience the pain of the pokes.

I believe Mike comes in tomorrow, and we'll work in shifts at the hospital, with myself spending the nights.

Take Care,
