Well we've been admitted inpatient for round 2 of chemo. The research nurses came in and set up everything for the sleep study. I'm sitting here in a completely dark room with the sounds of crickets chirping....If it was little later (It's only 10) I'd probably fall right asleep. When the Sleep Study Nurses left it began 90 minutes of uninterupted sleep, which includes myself staying quiet and not going in and out of the room. When they left I gave him a kiss good night, and he rolled over and basically fell asleep immediately. The theory is that with the uninterupted periods of sleep they'll feel better and respond better for chemo. I will say I'm not nearly as nervous for the second cycle. Kevin and i chatted about it today, and he's a total guy. It's so funny. He basically said been there, done that, I'll be fine. His confidence naturally makes me that much more at ease for tomorrow morning. The first day of chemo, which is day -4, is by far the worst. We all know what to expect now, and hopefully any unwelcomed surprises will be few and far between. Well the crickets background is doing a number on me. I may fall asleep before 10:30. That would be a miracle! We'll keep the updates coming as his second round begins tomorow morning.
Everybody Take Care,
